What could be a more perfect ending to a summertime meal than easy peach cobbler? Savor the flavors of summer with sliced fresh peaches cooking away with butter and spices.

Interesting Facts About Patti Labelle

Once you&rsquove tried this peach cobbler recipe, you&rsquoll probably be wondering&hellip How did the singer Patti LaBelle also become a star in the kitchen and a celebrity chef?

Also known as the Godmother of Soul, Patti Labelle has had a long fifty-year career in music. But her other passion? Food!

Even while on tour, Patti was known to be whipping up something delicious in the kitchen for her backup band and has even cooked for musical legends like Elton John and Mick Jagger. A-List celebrities enjoying a meal made by Patti? That&rsquos how you know she&rsquos a great cook!

The Grammy award-winner published her first cookbook &ldquoRecipes to Sing About&rdquo in 1999 and has since released many more cookbooks. Patti says her cooking is deeply influenced by her Southern roots and the great cooks of her family including her mother and grandmother.

Best known for her desserts among many other comfort food dishes, she eventually partnered up with Walmart to bring her now famous sweet potato pie to dinner tables around the country.

Looks like music isn&rsquot the only thing of Patti&rsquos that&rsquos got SOUL!

When I first started uploading soul food recipes online, peach cobbler was one of my most requested recipes. Everyone wanted to know how I made my cobbler. Some wanted to know if I used bisquick. Others wanted to know if I topped my cobbler with a crisp. But the biggest mystery was whether If I use fresh, frozen, or canned peaches for my cobbler.

So what do I use? I actually do it all. However, my FAVORITE Peach Cobbler Recipe will probably always be my original recipe that I uploaded back in 2011 ( I know I say they’re all my favorite, but this one is truly my FAV!!). Back then I called it ” Rosie’s Peach Cobbler”, and referred to it as my busy mom peach cobbler because it is quick and easy to make.

For this soulful peach cobbler I use store bought pie dough, and canned peaches in heavy syrup. This cobbler has dumplings throughout the filling, and there is plenty of cobbler juice( just like soul food peach cobbler should have). I use cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger to spice up the cobbler. However, if you’re not a fan of ginger, you can leave it out.

Variations On Peach Cobbler

Another reason why I love this one: you can modify it to suit whatever fruit you’ve got on hand.

Got loads of blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, rhubarb, whatever? Go for it. Maybe even a blueberry peach combo?! You little chef, you.

And isn’t that the best thing about fruity desserts in the summer? Just working with whatever you’ve got? Same level of use-the-fruit-on-hand flexibility goes for this dreamy Blueberry Crisp and these Raspberry Crumbles. ❤️

Bottom line: this recipe is forgiving, versatile, unfussy, and very very good.

It’s still AUGUST, for crying out loud. Live your life.

How to make Peach Cobbler:

  • Wash, pit and slice peaches (skins can be left on)
  • Mix peaches with spices, lemon juice, sugar and cornstarch.
  • Bake peaches for 15 minutes uncovered in baking pan.
  • While baking make cobbler topping in food processor.
  • Top over peaches and bake additional 30 minutes.
  • Serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.

Peach Cobbler with Cake Mix:

If you’re looking to make a peach cobbler with cake mix you can use my Cherry Pineapple Dump Cake recipe and swap out the cherry and pineapple filling for the filling in this recipe and bake as directed.


It would be helpful to know what measurements go where. To make the crust it doesn’t specify if it’s the 3/4 cup of a sugar or 2 tablespoons. You literally have a 50/50 chance of ruining everything. I’m not a lifelong baker, I’m a beginner. So it would be nice if there was more clarification.

The ingredients are broken up by buttery pie crust and then peach filling.

Hi Monique, I am eager to try this recipe, but I have a question. One of the crust ingredients is listed as 8 oz. (1 stick) butter. Where I live, butter is sold in 16 oz. packages containing four (4) sticks, so each stick is only four ounces. Am I supposed to use two sticks of butter totaling eight ounces? Or is the number 8 a typo, so only one four-ounce stick of butter is needed? Thank you in advance for clarifying.

The recipe calls for 8oz or 1 stick so if you purchase 4 oz sticks use 2

It’s a typo. You should use only 4 ounces/1 stick. The crust recipe is pretty common for double pie crusts and it’s almost always a cup of fat (8 ounces) to 2.5 cups flour, give or take a couple of tablespoons.

FINALLY! A true Southern peach cobbler like I watched my great grandmother make. Real cobblers are made like this, with a buttery crust, not sweet batter. Thank you for a great recipe!

My favorite go to recipe for the easy buttery just right crust! This cobbler/pie is absolutely delicious and surprisingly so easy to make. Thanks for your website and easy delicious recipes! Keep them coming!

***MARRIAGE PROPOSAL*** I have always received compliments on every dish prepared using the recipes on this site but THIS PEACH COBBLER WAS SO AMAZING I couldn’t believe that I made it and he just couldn’t help himself! **The disclaimer is accurate so prepare with caution.

I have a recipe from my grandmother very close to this one. The only difference is I put it in a 9x 13 pan (cobbler) and layer it with an extra crust in the middle. It is absolutely delicious as that middle crust soaks up the juice. It’s everyone’s favorite part….of the cobbler/pie.

CAME OUT PERFECT!! Absolutely delicious!! I used store bought pie crust which worked great. This will definitely get you a RING!! Thanks for another easy but with exceptional results recipe!

Except being so tasty, this Peach Cobbler is so simple to make that it will be an easy job even for a person that never visited the kitchen. Count it yourself! How much time do you need to mix a cup of flour, a cup of milk, a cup of sugar and a teaspoon of baking powder, and then pour that mix over melted butter and over all that, add the peaches from the can? All in all two or three minutes and you are ready for baking it in the oven.

What is also a big plus for this recipe is the price of this fruit. If you take into consideration that the most expensive thing is butter and that ,except maybe the peaches, you already have everything in your pantry, it’s clear that Peach Cobbler is a super economic recipe.

And now, count everything up and you get a simple solution – super delicious, super easy and economic! If you have doubted until now, I’m sure that this beautiful Peach Cobbler will surely be one of your favorite recipes for this summer! Anyway, enough talk! Let the baking begin.

Peach cobbler is best eaten right away, while still hot from the oven. A scoop of ice cream or a dollop of sweet whipped cream is about all it needs. Serve it with any of the following:

If you like, you can mix together the peach filling, mix together the cobbler topping, and store them separately up to a day in advance. Assemble then bake.

Baked peach cobbler is best served the day its made and doesn't tend to travel well (the juices slosh around and the cobbler topping sinks).

We haven't tried freezing this cobbler, but it should work in theory, though we suspect the cobbler topping will be softer and chewier. Let it cool completely, then wrap in plastic followed by foil. Freeze for up to three months and thaw in the fridge before serving.
