Peach cobbler is a classic dessert that's almost as easy to make as it is to eat. This delicious gluten-free dessert for only takes about 10 minutes to prepare and 35 minutes to bake thanks to the easy gluten-free batter topping and shortcut peach filling. It's a perfect last minute dessert and can be made with canned peaches—no need to peel and core fresh fruit.

If you have fresh, ripe peaches handy, peel and core them before tossing with a few tablespoons of sugar and letting them sit for a few minutes to make their own syrup. Frozen fruit can be used, too. Top with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon for an extra-dreamy sweet treat.

If the weather is too hot for a bubbling, fresh-from-the-oven, fruit-filled dessert, try one of these cool, frozen refreshing gluten-free desserts. If you're not gluten-free, bake up a super easy shortcut peach cobbler or a classic fresh fruit cobbler.

Steps to Make It

Note: while there are multiple steps to this recipe, this dessert is broken down into workable categories to help you better plan for preparation and baking.

Make the Peach Filling

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Preheat the oven to 350 F.

  3. Drain the sliced peaches in a large mesh sieve set over a bowl and reserve 1 cup of the heavy syrup.

  4. Place drained peaches in a medium mixing bowl. Add the cornstarch, cinnamon, and nutmeg and stir to combine.

  5. Pour in 3/4 cup of the reserved syrup and stir. Reserve the remaining 1/4 cup of syrup for the batter. Pour the peach filling into an 11x7-inch baking dish.

Make the Batter

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the sugar, gluten-free flour, gluten-free baking powder, and salt until thoroughly combined.

  3. Add remaining 1/4 cup reserved peach syrup, egg, melted butter, milk, and vanilla. Beat until well mixed.

  4. Use a tablespoon to drop even spoonfuls of batter over the peach filling.

Make the Topping

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Drizzle melted butter over the batter.

  3. Mix the sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle on top.

Bake and Serve

  1. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until batter is golden brown.

  2. Cool for a few minutes before serving—the sauce will thicken as the cobbler cools. Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or dollop of whipped cream, if using.
