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.

  1. 5 stars
    i was pretty dubious about the “pour the hot water on top part,” but it worked like magic. I’ll never know how you thought of that, but thanks so much for sharing this recipe.

  2. Best peach cobbler i ever ate or made ! I didnt put pecans in mine, but other wise made it just like recipe states. Thanks for a great recipe!

  3. Paula, I live in Kentucky and looked online for a Derby Pie cobbler/dump cake recipe for a Derby party, but, could not find one. I attempted to adapt a pecan dump cake recipe by adding chocolate chips, and although it was good, it was a gooey mess! Do you think your Pecan Cobbler recipe could be adapted to have a similar taste to Derby Pie?

  4. i have loooked for hours , in cook books and on the net , to find a peach cobbler that did not look dried out. i think i have finaly found what i am looking for. this cobbler looks moist (wet), and looks like there will be plenty of the liquid to go around. i am going to the kitchen and getting started. ps–the pictures really show this peach cobbler off!!

  5. RE: Peach Pecan Cobbler

    Should I drain the canned peaches first before adding them to the cobbler?

  6. What a lovely recipe for my favorite fruit, so I’m looking forward to making this delicious dessert as soon as I get more fresh peaches. Do you peel your fresh peaches before using them (blanch & shock?) Also, I know that you lovely folks in the south like your desserts (and tea) very sweet, but we here…. not so much. Since peaches are already naturally sweet & delicious, I plan to cut down a bit on the amount of both sugars in this recipe, I’m sure that this Cobbler will still be scrumptious!

  7. Thanks for the clarification. This looks like a dessert I would like to try this weekend so I appreciate your prompt reply.

  8. In the main recipe you state use to use 1 3/4 tsp. baking powder and yet in the substitution of self rising flour you have omit the salt and baking soda. so my question is are we to use baking powder or baking soda?

  9. Looks yummy! It mentions toasted pecans in the write-up but not in the instructions. Did you toast and cool them beforehand?

  10. YUM… this really looks amazing. I think my family would love it so I’m definitely going to try it out 🙂

  11. Paula, this dessert is amazing!!! Pinned TWICE and yummed and tweeted, too. I love it!
