You don't need a lot of ingredients to make an impressive, crowd-pleasing dessert. Take this quick and easy peach cobbler, for instance: It comes together in under an hour with just five ingredients you probably already have on hand.

Quick and Easy Peach Cobbler Ingredients

Here's what you'll need to make this irresistible, five-ingredient easy peach cobbler recipe: 

Butter
Use melted, unsalted butter for this recipe. You can use salted butter if that's what you have on hand. 

Flour
Self-rising flour, along with sugar and milk, ensures a perfectly sweet and crunchy cobbler crust. If you only have all-purpose flour on hand, make sure to add salt and baking powder to the flour mixture. 

Sugar
This recipe calls for a cup of white sugar. Use a combination of white and brown sugars for a sweet twist. 

Milk
Use whole milk (or whatever alternative milk you have on hand) to make this decadent peach dessert. 

Peaches
Canned peaches in heavy syrup put the "quick and easy" in this quick and easy peach cobbler recipe. It's best not to substitute fresh peaches for this recipe, as the heavy syrup from the can is necessary for the flavor and consistency. 

How to Make Peach Cobbler 

You won't believe how easy it is to make this homemade peach cobbler. You'll find the full recipe below, but here's what you can expect when you make this top-rated dessert: 

Make Flour Mixture

Mix flour, sugar, and milk in a bowl until there are no lumps. 

Melt Butter 

Melt the butter in a cast-iron skillet, then top with the flour mixture. 

Add Peaches and Toss

Add the peaches (with the syrup) to the skillet and stir until the peaches are evenly spread around the skillet and coated with the flour mixture. 

Bake the Cobbler 

Bake the cobbler in a preheated oven until the crust turns golden brown. Cool slightly before serving.

What to Serve With Peach Cobbler 

Technically, you don't need to serve this easy peach cobbler with anything — it's delicious as-is. However, we recommend pairing it with a scoop (or two, or three) of vanilla ice cream and/or homemade whipped cream

How to Store Peach Cobbler

Store this easy peach cobbler in an airtight container in the fridge for up to three days. Reheat in the microwave or oven until the peaches are heated through. 

Can You Freeze Peach Cobbler?

While you can freeze peach cobbler, the topping might get a little mushy during the thawing process. If that's OK with you, here's what to do: Allow the cobbler to cool completely, then transfer it to a freezer-safe container. Wrap the container in a layer of foil for added protection. Freeze for up to three months. Thaw in the fridge and reheat in the oven until the peaches are heated through. 

Allrecipes Community Tips and Praise

"I've made this to rave reviews for many years," according to Mary Jo Morris. "It was too easy, I thought, so one summer, I tried many dessert recipes with peaches for friends who loved peaches. Each time the response was that they couldn't understand why I wouldn't stick with this recipe, which they said was the best they'd ever eaten. Sometimes, I do add blueberries."

"I have made this for years," says Ricky Williams. "I do add a tablespoon of vanilla flavoring to the batter, a dash of nutmeg, and a dash of cinnamon. That is how my grandmother taught me to make this cobbler."

"Old time favorite — just like my mom taught me," raves Debby. "I will, on occasion, sprinkle brown sugar and cinnamon on the top for the last 20 minutes of baking. Thanks!"
