Summertime comfort food at it's finest, this Peach Cobbler is of the cake variety and is so delicious. Juicy ripe peaches are baked together with a buttery almond-scented cake batter. Serve it warm with a scoop of ice cream, and it's the best way to savor summer peaches.


  • 5 peaches (about 1½ lb.), peeled (optional), pitted and diced
  • 1-1/4 cup (250 grams) granulated sugar, divided
  • 1-½ cups (180 grams) all-purpose flour
  • 1-½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/4 cups (285 grams) buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon pure almond extract
  • ¾ cup (140 grams) unsalted butter


  1. Preheat the oven to 375ºF and set aside a 2-quart 11x7" baking dish (see notes for alternatives).
  2. Combine peaches and ¼ cup sugar to a bowl. Let sit while assembling the cobbler batter.
  3. Add flour, remaining 1 cup of sugar, baking powder and salt to a bowl and whisk to combine. Add in the buttermilk, vanilla and almond extract and stir together until combined.
  4. Melt butter, and immediately pour into the baking dish. Next pour in the cobbler batter in the middle. Take a knife and swirl the butter around into the batter.
  5. Scatter the peaches and the juice evenly over the top of the batter. 
  6. Bake in the center of the oven for 45-55 minutes, or until the middle is bubbling and the top is lightly browned.
  7. Let cool slightly, about 10 minutes, then serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.


This recipe fits a rough 2-quart baking dish, or roughly 8 cups. This is typically a 7x11" baking dish. If you didn't have a 2-quart baking dish, you can bake this in a 9x13, but it will be thinner, and likely cook quicker. So check in on it after 35-40 minutes.
