Old Fashioned Peach Cobbler

I’ve tried a lot of peach cobbler in my life, and I can truly say that this is the BEST peach cobbler I have tried. Like many of you, I grew up eating peach cobbler at family get-togethers and summer picnics. I can’t help being in love with it because it’s just so good. When you have a warm piece of cobbler and a cold helping of ice cream, it’s like I have died and gone to heaven.

The secret to the perfect fluffy topping that is crumbly is using self-rising flour. I know some people swear by using baking mixes, and there is nothing wrong with that, but I think I get the best results from using the flour. Plus, it’s easy to work with, and the flavor is phenomenal. To me, the texture is everything. When you bake it the right amount of time, the topping with being so good it’s like a dessert on its own even without the peaches.

Whenever we have someone new move into the area, we love making them treats. Sometimes we will make cookies because who doesn’t love a fresh batch of cookies? But more often than not, we make this old fashioned peach cobbler when the season is right. I’ve had so many compliments over the years from using this exact recipe. It’s one that has been tried and true forever, and I can’t believe I am only just now sharing it with you. 

Can I Make This with Frozen or Canned Peaches? 

Yes, you can use frozen or canned peaches. This is a great alternative when fresh peaches aren’t in season. I know you can pretty much pick up a batch of fresh peaches any time of year at your local market, but when they aren’t in season, they don’t have that incredible flavor and sweetness we love. I prefer frozen over canned, but both are great. Make sure if you opt to use canned peaches that you always drain off the liquid. If you don’t, the peach cobbler will be messy and watered down. 

Does Peach Cobbler Need to be Refrigerated? 

This old fashioned peach cobbler is by far better when you can make it and eat it fresh. However, if you end up with leftovers, it’s best to refrigerate it. If you leave peach cobbler on the counter, it will only last 1 – 2 days, but if you refrigerate it, the cobbler will last up to 5 – 6 days. Make sure you cover the peach cobbler before you store it, so it’s airtight. This will give it the best results for lasting the longest. 

If you ever notice that it seems extremely water, dried out, or there is an obvious mold growing on it, then it should be discarded right away and is no longer good anymore. 

What Should I Top Cobbler With? 

You don’t have to top peach cobbler with anything if you don’t want to. My favorite things to top it with is sprinkling a little bit of cinnamon and sugar on top before baking. It adds a little extra sweetness that is extraordinary. Another go-to of mine is ICE CREAM! Peach, vanilla, or butter pecan are my top favorites that go amazing with this cobbler recipe. 

You can also add some whipped topping on the old fashioned peach cobbler. It’s creamy and light! Sometimes we will add some candied pecans to the top too. It’s mouthwatering good, and candied pecans are amazing on their own, so it makes sense to add them to this cobbler. 


Can you believe you only need 10 ingredients to make this old fashioned peach cobbler? The best part is other than fresh peaches; you probably have everything around your house already. 

  • Canned peach pie filling
  • Fresh sliced peaches 
  • Brown sugar
  • Self-rising flour
  • Granulated sugar
  • Baking powder
  • Cinnamon
  • Salt
  • Pure vanilla extract
  • Milk
