Best Peach Cobbler
This peach cobbler is made with the abundance of juicy peaches, and crunchy toppings, which makes them so yummy. Here, you will learn how to make the perfect peach cobbler for your loved ones in the comfort of your own home.
I am lucky because I live in CO where you will get the best palisade peaches. That is why I decided to experiment on the whole 30’s peach cobbler. I am usually so excited this time of the year, and I can’t keep calm! I visit the farmers market and buy a whole box of peaches for the entire week. I never seem to get enough. I reminisce about my home in Poland, where we have some of the finest peaches in the world.
These peaches at the peak of summer baked with the crunchiest topping and a sprinkle, of sugar, leave a tangy, sweet, velvety, and drippy taste on your tongue that makes my mouth water just thinking about it. The cobbler should be light and have crunchy toppings. For you to get the perfect blend of taste and flavor, always go for fresh over canned ones.
I like the cobbler to have a lot of flavors, so I always go for vanilla extract and butter and avoid the overpowering cinnamon taste because you really want to taste the peaches. However, I do add a pinch of cardamom to give it a spicy, citrusy flavor. Keep in mind that you only need a pinch of cardamom, that is often used for its fragrance, not its taste.
If you do not have a recipe to follow, start with a pod, and increase until you are happy with the taste and smell. Take extra care not to overdo the spices. It is easy to overwhelm this dish with a number of spices. Peaches do not need to be overdone because you may end up with a mushy taste that isn’t appealing.
Homemade Peach Cobbler Ingredients
Always go for fresh peaches. You can confirm the ripe ones by their color. Yellow ones are always the best. You also need to ensure that they are not squishy because you do not want a mushy peach filling. You also need to check that they do not have molds and bruises.
Lemon juice- always go for freshly squeezed juice. It is best for all meals.
Arrowroot- These are perfect because they help in the thickening of the juices in the peach filling, thus making it have that syrup-like feel to them.
Coconut sugar- This allows the juices to caramelize perfectly. It also adds a bit of acidity for the tangy flavor.
Salt, cinnamon, and cardamom- These will add an extra taste and flavor to the cobbler.
Vanilla extract and unsalted butter- These are for richness and for highlighting the flavor of the peaches.
How to Make It
The Process Is Simple:
- Put the peaches and the sugar in a dish and mix well
- Use the crumbling to make a dough over the peaches using your hands.
- Bake them in a preheated oven for the best results. To make it crispy, sprinkle some coconut sugar and give it more time to cook. It will be dreamy and yummy.
- Most people recommend waiting for it to cool, but I prefer eating it hot with a scoop of ice cream. That’s my slice of heaven right there.
- It is juicy and low maintenance. You don’t even really have to be a great cook to make this one.
This recipe can be modified to use any fruit that you like. These fruity desserts are just perfect for the summer. Just work with whatever you have!

- 10 peaches large fresh yellow, sliced
- 2 tbsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp cardamon
- 1/4 cup coconut sugar
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- 3/4 cup unsalted butter melted
- 1 cup cassava flour
- 1/4 cup coconut flour
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp baking powder
- a pinch of salt
- 1/4 cup coconut sugar
- pinch of salt
- coconut vanilla ice cream for serving
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Smear the bottom of 9×13 pan with a little bit of butter. Add peaches and sugar, and mix directly in the pan.
- Mix the butter, flour, sugar, vanilla, baking powder, egg, and salt until a cookie-dough-like batter forms.
- Place scoops of the mixture over the top of the peaches. Spread with a spoon or with your fingers.
- Bake for 30 minutes. At this point it should be juicy and bubbly around the sides – if not, see notes.
- Sprinkle the top with coconut sugar. Bake another 10 minutes and then finish with a few minutes under the broiler (475-ish) for a few minutes to get it golden brown and slightly crunchy on top.
- To get a thick saucy peach base, let it stand for 20-30 minutes before serving with some vanilla ice cream. But good luck with that.
