We don’t usually think of summer fruit recipes as “comfort food” because that word is usually used for comfort food in the winter. But if there is one, it’s peach cobbler. There are juicy peaches with a hint of ginger and cinnamon on top of a buttery biscuit base. When it’s hot and a scoop of vanilla ice cream melts on top, it tastes like a hug.



Peach Filling
  • 3.54 lbs fresh peaches, peeled and cut into 1-1.5 inch chunks (about 10 cups or 1.5kg)
  • 1/4 cup (50g) packed light or dark brown sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon (7g) cornstarch
  • 1 Tablespoon (15ml) lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

Biscuit Topping

  • 2 cups (250g) all-purpose flour (spooned & leveled)
  • 1/2 cup (100g) granulated sugar
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (8 Tbsp; 113g) unsalted butter, cold and cubed
  • 1/2 cup (120ml) buttermilk, cold*
  • egg wash: 1 large egg beaten with 1 Tablespoon (15ml) milk or buttermilk
  • optional: 2 Tablespoons (25g) granulated sugar mixed with 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon




  • Warm the oven up to 177°F (350°C). Grease a 9×13-inch baking pan with a little oil. Any baking dish that holds 3 to 4 quarts will do.
  • For the filling, put all of the ingredients in a large bowl and mix them together. Then, spread the mixture out in the baking pan. Set the oven to 10 minutes.


  • Take it out of the oven and set it aside while you make the topping. Don’t turn off the oven. Topping for the cake: In a large bowl, mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt with a whisk.
  • Cut in the cold butter with a pastry cutter or two forks until the mixture looks like big pea-sized crumbs. This step is very simple and quick if you use a pastry cutter.


  • A food processor could also be used. Add the buttermilk and mix slowly until everything is well mixed.
  • Once everything is mixed together, the dough should be a little sticky. If it’s too dry, add one more tablespoon of buttermilk.


  • Put together the cobbler: Use your hands to gently press out handfuls of dough. Cover the warm peach filling with dough all the way to the edges.
  • There’s no special way to do this; just roll out the dough into squares and put most of the peaches on top.


  • Put an egg wash on top of the biscuit dough, and then, if you want, sprinkle it with cinnamon sugar.
  • It should be baked for forty to fifty minutes, or until the top of the biscuits is golden brown and the peach filling starts to bubble around the edges.


  • Put a toothpick into the biscuit topping to see if it’s done. If it comes out clean, it’s done. Take the pan of cobbler out of the oven and place it on a wire rack.
  • Allow to cool for 5 minutes before using. Warm it up and serve it with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream. Cover leftovers and put them in the fridge for up to five days.




Q1. How do you know peaches are ripe enough for cobbler?

Peaches are ready for peach cobbler when they are just slightly firm (not hard) and have no bruises. The dessert will taste mushy if the peaches are mushy.


Q2. Do you have to peel peaches for peach cobbler?

When you make this dessert, you don’t have to peel the peaches like I do.


Q3. Can I make this cobbler with frozen or canned peaches?

For cobbler, fresh peaches work best, but frozen peaches that haven’t been sweetened will do. Let frozen peaches thaw, chop them up, and pat them dry before you use them. People who have read this have raved about the dessert that uses thawed frozen peaches. It’s not a good idea to use canned peaches because they are already too soft and mushy.


Q4. Can I add or use other fruits?

A lot of people have asked if they can add blueberries, cherries, plums, pluots, nectarines, and other fruits. As long as you have about 10 cups (1.5 kg) of fruits, you can switch them out or use a mix of them. I really like how this has equal amounts of blueberries and peaches. This mixed berry cobbler might be good too.


Q5. Can I make this without egg wash?

I brush the biscuit topping with an egg wash, which is made by beating an egg with buttermilk. This makes it golden brown, crisp, and shiny. If you don’t want to use an egg, you can just brush with buttermilk.
