I had some peaches I needed to use up before they went bad and only one small can of peaches so I used fresh and cannned peaches and made cobbler. It turned out yummy and any excuse to make cobbler right?

Apple is hands down my favorite. The recipe looks super adaptable. I see cherry, blueberry, and raspberry cobblers in my future!

Reply
Melissa July 22, 2013 - 6:21 PM

It is definitely adaptable to any fruit you like best. Cherry would be delish with this batter topping. YUM! I will definitely have to try different flavors soon.

You drain the syrup or use it?

Reply

Definitely use the syrup. 🙂

Francine August 25, 2014 - 11:27 PM

Do you use the entire can of syrup that is in peaches? Or just half? I’m afraid it will turn out mushy

How many does this serve?

Reply

Approximately 4-6 depending on how big of servings.

This looks delicious! I am going to make it tonight…can I sub Almond milk for reg milk?

Reply
Melissa Coleman May 27, 2015 - 2:46 PM

Carli, I have never tried it with almond milk but I don’t see why you couldn’t. It might change the taste just a little but I bet still just as yummy.

About 20 min into baking and it already looks delicious! I’m so excited!

Can you use all fresh peaches? I have so many to use up, but just making sure it won’t turn out dry!

Reply
Melissa Coleman August 28, 2015 - 5:13 PM

Stephanie, I have never tried it with fresh peaches because I always use the syrup from the can with this recipe. It couldn’t hurt to give it a try though. It might come out a little drier but I bet still just as yummy. You might could even try blending a peach to give it some of that extra syrup it would be missing from the can.

Melissa, I have a HUGE can of peaches ( 6lb 10oz ) so if I measure out the peaches how much syrup do I use ??

Reply
Melissa June 6, 2017 - 9:56 AM

Choo,

I have never measured how much was in the can of a 15 oz of peaches so it would just be a guess. I would say maybe 1/2 cup, if it looks a little dry you could always add a little more. Trying to measure out from a bigger can of peaches would be just trial and error.

I love this recipe and have been making it for years. I my original recipe calls for regular flour and 2 tsp. of baking powder (not soda) and 1/2 tsp. salt. So I think either way is good. I never have self-risng flour on hand so this works for me. It is always a hit!!!

Ashley Cozad April 27, 2016 - 2:39 AM

I made this tonight and it was wonderful… Especially with a scoop of ice cream. I did however, use baking powder and salt. I also added nutmeg and cinnamon. I don’t like to measure things and I kind of just winged it, it turned out perfect! Thanks for the recipe it’s super easy and worth the hour!

I am from Australia and would like to know how much is a stick of butter (what weight or ounces )

Reply

Aileen, 1 stick of butter would be 4 ounces.

Loni April 10, 2017 - 6:05 AM

I make this but have never used the syrup before. It always comes out yummy and very moist. But I will try using the syrup next time!

Could you make this gluten free by using oat flour instead of regular flour?

Reply
Melissa April 19, 2017 - 11:30 AM

Dixie, I honestly don’t know much about oat flour but from what I have read is that you would have to make some other adjustments for it to come out right. I would suggest searching for a GF peach cobbler recipe if you really need to make the change to oat flour.

Reply
Cathy April 20, 2017 - 12:29 AM

I made two batches of this peach cobbler and it’s so easy and DELICIOUS!!
The only thing I did differently was decreased the cup of sugar to 1/2 c and it was perfect!!
* try adding some fresh peaches with the canned 🙂

Hey Melissa,

can I substitute the bisquick for flour?

Reply
Melissa July 14, 2017 - 11:40 AM

Betty,

Do you mean substitute the flour for Bisquick as this recipe already uses flour? I have never used Bisquick to replace the flour in this cobbler recipe before. You could try it but I won’t guarantee that it would turn out correctly. Also, I would google how to substitute flour for Bisquick because you may need to add some additional ingredients.

Can I use all purpose flour instead?

Reply
Melissa October 1, 2017 - 5:42 PM

Dorie,

You can but you will need to add in 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon of salt.

Do you use salted or unsalted butter?

unsalted

If using fresh fruit crushing and sweetening to taste will provide enough juice.

Reply
Joshua Hall June 27, 2018 - 11:35 PM

I use fresh fruit that I sweetened. I love this recipe, it’s easy and just like the cobbler my great- grandmother made.

I bet using fresh peaches makes it even tastier.

If I double this do I just use one stick of butter or do I increase it to two?

Reply
Melissa April 25, 2019 - 7:37 PM

You will need to double all of the ingredients, so you would need 2 sticks of butter.
