I made this 4 ingredient peach cobbler for Father’s Day last weekend and let me tell ya, it was a HUGE hit! I even made it gluten-free (see note below), and no one could taste the difference. Now it doesn’t take much scrolling around here to realize that I’m a huge fan of few-ingredient desserts. I’m talkin’ 4 ingredient banana bread, 5 ingredient healthy cookie dough, and 6 ingredient mug cakes. So ya, I’d say this 4 ingredient peach cobbler fits perfectly into that lineup!

What You’ll Need to Make This Recipe

Fresh Peaches: You’ll need 5-6 large fresh peaches, sliced. Fresh peaches provide the best flavor and texture, but you can also use frozen or canned peaches as an alternative.

Sugar: You can use regular sugar, or swap it for coconut sugar or monkfruit sweetener for a healthier option.

Self-Rising Flour: Use 1 cup of self-rising flour to create the cobbler topping. If you don’t have self-rising flour, you can use all-purpose flour with 1 ½ teaspoons of baking powder added.

Butter: You’ll need ½ cup of melted butter for a rich and flavorful topping. For a dairy-free alternative, substitute with vegan butter or coconut oil.

Types of Peach to Use

  • Fresh peaches are ideal for the best flavor and texture. Simply peel, slice, and they’re ready to go.
  • Frozen peaches are a great alternative when fresh peaches are out of season. Thaw and drain them before using.
  • Canned peaches are convenient and work well in this recipe. Make sure to drain them thoroughly before adding to the pan, and leave the sugar out of the filling since canned peaches are already sweetened.

Adjust This Recipe to Your Dietary Needs

Make it Gluten-Free: Use self-rising gluten-free all-purpose flour in place of regular self-rising flour.

Vegan Option: Substitute melted butter with vegan butter or coconut oil.

Make it Sugar-Free: Replace regular sugar with monkfruit sugar or your preferred sugar substitute.
