This old school Easy Brown Sugar Peach Cobbler is the sweetest use for mid/to late summer peaches. Every spoonful is layered with juicy, sweet summer peaches, rich butter, vanilla, warming cinnamon, and plenty of brown sugar to sweeten the deal. The peaches are juicy, while the topping is crisp on the edges, soft in the center, and extra buttery. Top with vanilla ice cream and salted maple butter for the best peach treat of the summer.

It’s finally here! Friday, the weekend, and time for me to share my favorite peach recipe yet, the simplest old-fashioned peach cobbler. Oh, how I LOVE this cobbler. I spent days perfecting the recipe and have been dying to share the final version.

With today being the last Friday of July, I knew it was the perfect time for a peach recipe. The juiciest, sweetest summer peaches are all filling up the grocery stores, farmer’s markets, and roadside farm stands. And I know just what to do with them.

It’s prime-time peach picking season!

Before summer began, I knew I really wanted to share a peach cobbler recipe. It’s a recipe I haven’t played around with much because I just love the idea of an old-fashioned-style peach cobbler.

One with the sweetest peaches, a “self-made” caramel-like sauce, and vanilla cake-like biscuits on top. Oh, plus ice cream, of course.

This took me time to get just right, but the simpler I made the recipe, the better it became. This is the best peach cobbler.

The details

Start by melting the butter. I like to throw a baking dish with butter into the oven to melt and get a little browned.

While the butter is melting, mix up the batter. It’s simply, flour, brown sugar, baking powder, and a sprinkling of cinnamon. Then add in the milk and vanilla to create a pancake-like batter.

The rest is just assembly. You need to toss the peaches with some brown sugar, then layer half of them over the melted butter. Next, pour over the batter and then layer the remaining peaches over the batter.

No stirring is allowed, this is the secret, and what makes this cobbler extra special.

As the cobbler bakes, the butter bubbles up over the topping. This helps to create delicious, golden, crisp edges all while forming a caramel sauce underneath.

The peaches on top caramelize as they sink into the cobbler. Between the rich buttery caramel sauce, crisp edges, and sweet peaches, it’s truly magic.

While the cobbler bakes, I make the maple butter. Just butter, maple, and sea salt. This is not a must but it is really delicious when spooned over the warm cobbler with vanilla ice cream.

The one thing you must do is serve this warm, while the juices are bubbling up, and everything is smelling incredible.

This is a classic summertime dessert that really should be happening on a weekly basis throughout August. It’s dangerously delicious, dangerously addicting, and all-around perfection!

  1. Had a bunch of peaches that were just sitting on my counter getting old so I thought why not make peach cobbler. And let me tell you this recipe was a huge hit in my house. Everyone in my family said it was the best thing I ever made! I think it’s the maple that really elevates this simple dessert.
    Thanks for sharing this recipe!! I’ll definitely be making this again!

  2. Delicious! Drizzled the maple butter on top which made it extra yummy! The whole house smelled great too.

    1. Hi Heather,
      Thanks a lot for trying this recipe out and sharing your feedback, I love to hear that it was a winner! xTieghan

  3. Hello there! I have just bought some beautiful farm fresh peaches from our local Farmer’s Market and can’t wait to try your delicious peach cobbler recipe. I am making it for a barbecue tonight. Wondered if I can prep everything ahead, put it in the fridge and then bake it closer to dinner time. The recipe looks fabulous!

    1. Hi Danielle,
      Yes, that is fine to do, you can also just bake ahead of time, this is also great served at room temp. I hope you love the recipe! xT

  4. I had 10lb of Palisade peaches and a daughter starting school tomorrow, so I adapted this into 12 individual cobblers using a lined muffin tin. My goal was to keep it mess-free and able to pack in a lunch. I started by melting little pats of butter into each liners. I brushed the melted butter up the sides of the muffin liners, then I followed the recipe as written except for slicing the peaches thinner and using fewer of them. I just did one layer of peaches, which I nestled right into the dough. I baked at 375 for 30 minutes (and probably could have gone a bit less). They’re a little hard to peel out of the muffin liners — which I expected — but SO delicious and completely contained/mess-free! Thank you so much for this recipe. I’m sure the real thing with all of those gooey peaches is even more delicious, but I can’t wait for my daughter to see her surprise treat! The biscuit part is just amazing.

    1. Hey Mary,

  5. I’m so excited to make this recipe but I wanted to make it for an upcoming event. Can I make these in individual portions in ramekins or in a mini skillet? Would I need to adjust the recipe in any way other than cook time?
    Thank you so much.

    1. I’m a semi-experienced baker and going to try the individual portions for some lunchbox treats. I’ll let you know how it goes!

    2. Hey Emily,
      Sure, I bet that would work well for you! Just reduce the bake time:) I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you give it a try! xx
