Browned Butter Peach Cobbler.

If you love Peaches, then you are going to love our Browned Butter Peach Cobbler! The peaches are soft and juicy, and the browned butter cobbler topping is sweet, soft, and crumbly! It’s a great end of Summer dessert and the best way to use up your peaches.

This Peach Cobbler is perfect for this time of year; transitioning into fall! Although we are so excited for Fall, we still think there’s still some time before bringing out the pumpkin recipes. But stay tuned since we will have lots of pumpkin recipes when Fall officially starts! (:

Ingredient Overview:

Peaches: We like using yellow peaches because we find that they look the best. Use peaches that are ripe. Some recipes call for canned peaches but using fresh peaches makes such a big difference!

Lemon Juice: Lemon juice adds a bright and citrusy flavor to this cobbler!

Vanilla Extract: A must-have for all baked goods!

Cinnamon + Nutmeg: These spices add a warm flavor to the fresh cobbler, giving it the perfect balance. A tip is to use freshly ground nutmeg! (You won’t regret it.)

Cornstarch: While baking, the cornstarch thickens the peach juices leaving you with a syrupy filling.

Brown Sugar: For this recipe, we prefer using brown sugar over white sugar. It goes well with the cinnamon and nutmeg.

Browned Butter: Whenever possible, we love browning the butter! It elevates any dessert and gives another depth of flavor.

Flour: Use all-purpose flour.

Baking Powder + Salt: Two more must-haves for baking! 

Buttermilk: We love using buttermilk because it adds flavor, and brings a pleasant tang to whatever you are baking!

Heavy Cream + Raw Sugar: These two ingredients are for topping the cobbler right before baking. Brushing on heavy cream gives the cobbler a shine, and the raw sugar gives it a nice look and texture.

And that’s why this Peach Cobbler is perfect for the transition from Summer into Fall! It’s summery from the peaches, with a hint of cinnamon and nutmeg, giving it that warm, slightly cozy feeling.

This Peach Cobbler is a lot smaller than most recipes, so it is a nice dessert you can serve at a small dinner party for four or six, which would be perfect!

Like just look at that texture!

Units Scale

For the Peaches:

10 oz. fresh sliced peaches

1 tsp. lemon juice

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon

1 tsp. cornstarch

3 Tbsp. brown sugar, packed

1/4 tsp. freshly ground nutmeg

For the Cobbler Topping:

1/2 cup butter

1 cup + 2 tbsp. all-purpose flour

3/4 tsp. baking powder

1/4 tsp. salt

1/4 cup brown sugar, packed

1/4 cup buttermilk

For Topping:

1 tsp. heavy cream

1 Tbsp. raw sugar

Vanilla Ice Cream


1. For the Peaches: Thinly slice your peaches, and measure out 10 oz. (About 2 and 1/2 peaches). Transfer the 10 oz. of sliced peaches to a bowl, along with 1 tsp. lemon juice, 1 tsp. vanilla extract, 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon, 1 tsp. cornstarch, 3 Tbsp. packed brown sugar, and 1/4 tsp. freshly ground nutmeg. Mix that until the peaches are well coated. Transfer to a 2-cup baking dish, and cook at 350 degrees F for 10-12 minutes.

2. How to brown butter: To a saucepan over medium heat, place 1 stick of butter. Let the butter melt. Once it’s melted, it will start to sizzle. Keep cooking and constantly stirring until it’s foamy at the top, with brown specks in the butter and it should have a nutty smell. Remove from the heat, and transfer to a bowl to let cool. Add a few ice cubes to cool it down faster, and to add back some of the evaporated water.

3. To make the Cobbler Topping: In a large bowl, mix together your browned butter, 1 cup + 2 Tbsp. all-purpose flour, 3/4 tsp. baking powder, 1/4 tsp. salt, 1/4 cup packed brown sugar, and 1/4 cup buttermilk. Mix until combined, and a dough forms.

4. Once the peaches are out of the oven, in large clumps, place the cobbler topping onto the peaches. Brush on 1 tsp. heavy cream, and sprinkle on 1 Tbsp. raw sugar. Bake for 20-30 minutes, or until golden brown and bubbling.

5. Serve with ice cream, and enjoy!
