Brown Sugar Peach Cobbler

Happy Fiesta Friday! Last Friday was such a blast and I made SO many new friends. Thank you to Angie at The Novice Gardener for hosting, as well as Hilda at Along the Grapevine and Julianna at Foodie on Board for co-hosting.

This week, we are hosted again by Angie, and our lovely co-hosts are Nancy at Feasting with Friends and Selma at Selma’s Table.

I am just blown away by the group of talented and gracious bloggers into which I’ve been welcomed. It is heartwarming and I can’t stop smiling about it.

You know what else is heartwarming, and tummy warming, and kitchen warming? This peach cobbler I created the other day.

It was a snow day, a disappointingly snowless snow day, but a snow day nonetheless, and I cannot and will not control my baking urges on snow days—something tells me I am not alone in this. It just makes sense; it’s cold outside, why not make the house smell amazing and stay warm inside with something fresh from the oven? So, I started rooting around in the freezer and found two bags of frozen, sliced peaches. This recipe isn’t very different from most cobbler recipes I’ve seen, but I go all brown sugar here. I adore brown sugar, and the combination of vanilla, brown sugar, and peaches just makes so much sense to my taste buds.

I hope you enjoy! (Still warm, with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream on top, if you please.)


Brown Sugar Peach Cobbler

  • Servings: 6-8
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print



  • 2 10-ounce bags frozen, sliced peaches
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • juice of 1/2 a lemon
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 tablespoons butter, cut into 8 small pieces

Biscuit Topping:

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 egg
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup cream or whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Optional Topping:

  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

To Prepare:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Butter a 2 quart baking dish—Rectangular or oval preferably.

In a large mixing bowl, combine all filling ingredients except butter and toss to combine. Place this mixture into the buttered baking dish and dot the top with the small pieces of butter.

Next, combine the flour, brown sugar, butter, baking powder and salt in a bowl and with a fork or a pastry cutter, mix until the butter is incorporated and you have a crumbly mixture. Stir the milk or cream, egg, and vanilla in a small bowl or measuring cup and add to the dry ingredients. Stir gently with a fork until you have a wet, biscuit dough. Drop this dough in little clumps all over the top of the peaches.

If desired, sprinkle top with the cinnamon-sugar mixture.

Place in preheated oven and bake for 30-40 minutes, until top is nice and brown and the filling is bubbly.

Let sit for about 15 minutes and serve with vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, or just a generous splash of cream right over the top.

  1. Hi Ani! I can’t decide if this peach cobbler makes me want to put on a bikini (summer fruit!) or stay here in my pyjamas and beanie cap (cobbler). What a scrumptious dessert, thank you for bringing to the party this week. Have a lovely weekend!

    • Haha! I know! Peaches are one of my favorite things about summer. I seriously have like 3 peach recipes in a row from this past summer. This cobbler is like a warm little bite of summer! You have a lovely weekend as well. 🙂 Thanks so much.

  2. I’ve never made a cobbler before hailing as I do from crumble country however I think this one I might need to try, currently its cabbage season here though so I am going to need to wait. Great dessert to bring to Fiesta Friday!

  3. This looks so, SO delicious.. I want to make it right now but no one else is here with me and I know if I make it everyone will come home to an empty bowl and me in a food coma.Perfect for the weekend though and number one on my to do list tomorrow. Its mt first fiesta friday and I’m seriously overexcited.

    • Haha! You would be in a very happy food coma. 😉 Thank you so much! And welcome! This is my 2nd Fiesta Friday and I am just so excited to be a part of it. So very nice to meet you! And great name, by the way… Anita is my name too! Ani is a nickname. I’m named after my lovely grandma. 🙂

  5. I am with you on how nice a cobbler is on a cold day – although there’s so much good food here today I don’t know I’d do it justice! Maybe one for another day. I do like peach cobbler as well – this looks great!

  6. Oh Ani, I am so pleased to hear that the Fiesta Friday community has welcomed you into the fold! Love your cobbler though I am a little jealous that you get frozen peaches – we either have fresh or tinned…thanks so much for bringing this to the party and so getting into the spirit of the party. Happy Fiesta Friday and happy weekend too!

  7. Yay…we didn’t scare you away from Fiesta Friday. 😉 I’m so happy to see you back this week…especially with this peach cobbler! To me…cobblers are dessert comfort food at their finest. I bet the group celebrating the big anniversary gobble this up in no time. Thanks for sharing your delicious recipe, Ani!

  8. Found my way here from the party! I love cobblers in the winter (who doesn’t love a cozy warm dessert) and this looks fantastic! Pinning the recipe for when peaches come back in season 🙂

  9. I am glad that you loved the FF people, Ani. We love you, too. 😀 We love making friends and most importantly, I love this Peach Cobbler of yours. 😀 Thanks for sharing here at FF53. Happy FF & see you again. 😉
