Peach Pecan Cobbler is a sweet and buttery dessert recipe that’s loaded with fresh peaches and toasted pecans. This simple and easy dessert comes together in one pan.

Peach Pecan Cobbler

I modeled this easy dessert recipe after my very popular Pecan Cobbler and Caramel Cobbler recipes.

They are popular not only because they’re so delicious, but because they’re so very simple to make. First, the ingredients are items that you probably already have on hand with the exception of the peaches. I love to use fresh peaches, but frozen or canned will also work. Secondly, there are not very many ingredients which I always like! And finally, it’s not only what’s in the dessert, but how you put it together.

The secret is layering the ingredients. It really is as simple as layering the ingredients. Don’t alter or change the order, layer the ingredients exactly as I have listed in the instructions below.

The one thing to remember when making this dessert is, don’t overthink it. Your first thought when pouring hot water over the batter is “this will never work”. It does, trust me. I know it doesn’t seem correct to pour hot water over batter, but it cooks wonderfully and makes the best sauce ever.

Peach Pecan Cobbler Tips

  1. Substitute 1 and 1/2 cups self-rising flour for the all-purpose flour. Omit the baking powder and salt.
  2. I don’t recommend changing the size of the pan. It needs to be thin to cook crisp. Otherwise, the batter with be ‘doughy’.
  3. You can substitute any fruit for the peaches.
  4. You can use sliced fresh, canned, or frozen peaches. If using canned peaches, I would drain them.

    FANTASTIC!! Peach cobbler is one of my favorite desserts, but adding pecans and the water trick that makes an amazing caramel sauce, it completely takes it over the top. Thank you so much for such an amazing recipe that I will be making time and time again!

  2. I am confused on the Flour amounts. I upped the servings to 20 for a large batch, why is there a difference in the flour amounts. It says 2 1/2 AND 1 1/4 Cups AP Flour. Why not just say 3 3/4 Cups????
    Am I missing something?


    1. It’s doubling each amount as written but not adding them together.
      Can I offer a suggestion. I recommend making recipe in 3 different batches (1 batch in a separate pan) as written instead of almost tripling the recipe and cooking it all together. With that much batter, I don”t think it’ll cook correctly.

  5. I am making this right now at 10:00 o’clock at night ( my best baking time ) for my daughter and granddaughter . They are coming to decorate my Christmas tree tomorrow. I used frozen peaches but I thawed them out . I hope they turn out ok. Love this recipe and Thankyou for sharing .
