Crock Pot Peach Cobbler
This Crock Pot Peach Cobbler takes me back to lazy summer evenings out on the back patio, enjoying a dish of fresh peaches and cream. There’s just something about those tender, juicy peaches that reminds me of simpler times. I’ve tried making peach cobblers in the oven, in a dutch oven, even the microwave and this recipe is not only delicious, but it’s so easy to make! And the best part is, the peaches retain their sweet, fresh flavor and bright peach color, while the topping stays nice and crisp. Perfection!
Tips for Crock Pot Peach Cobbler
- To avoid sogginess, here’s a smart tip: Place a paper towel over the top of the crock pot before replacing the lid. The paper towel collects the moisture as the peaches cook. Without the paper towel, the moisture forms on the lid and when the lid is removed the excess liquid drips onto the crumb topping making it soggy. Thanks to Karen at 365 Days of Slow Cooking for the tip!
- I prefer using a crock pot for this recipe now because it doesn’t heat up the house and the smell of the baking peaches is divine!
- If you don’t have fresh peaches, you can definitely use frozen or even canned. Just be sure to thaw them out and drain before adding to the crock pot, to avoid excess liquid in the recipe.
- If you are using fresh peaches in this recipe, be sure to blanch the peaches before you peel them. It makes peeling so much easier! To blanch the peaches, prepare a large pot of boiling water. Score the bottom of each peach with an X. Place peaches in the boiling water for 2-3 minutes. Make sure each peach is completely covered by water. If you have a smaller pot, you may need to do this in a couple of batches. Remove the peaches with a slotted spoon and immediately rinse with cold water or place them in a cold water bath. Once they have cooled to the touch, they can be peeled easily with a paring knife.

How to Make Crock Pot Peach Cobbler
- Spray slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray or lightly coat with butter.
- Place peeled and sliced peaches in the bottom of slow cooker.
- In a bowl, mix together oats, brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and baking powder.
- When ingredients are well mixed, place the butter slices evenly on top of the mixture then mix in the butter using a pastry blender or wooden spoon until it becomes nice and crumbly.
- Sprinkle the crumb topping evenly over the peaches.
- Cover the top of the slow cooker with a paper towel then place the lid on top of the towel. The paper towel will absorb the moisture instead of it forming on the lid. This keeps the excess liquid from dripping on to the crumb mixture when the lid is removed.
- Cook on high for 2 hours.
- Serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
