Homemade Mini Peach Cobbler

I love this mini version of peach cobbler.  Why does it seem that everything is better in mini size? For me, it is because when I am watching what I eat, I can have one for about 100 calories. Too bad they are so delicious that 1 turns into 2 and then 3….. Ugh, diet ruined. The comforting flavors of cinnamon and butter make every calorie so worth it though! With each bite, the middle tastes like it has a peach glaze and the top crust is perfection!

These are not only sooooo delicious, but also easy to make!  I had all of the ingredients on hand and made them in about 10 minutes.  I served them to my hubby and his friends with a scoop of ice cream on top and they gobbled them down for an afternoon dessert!

Peach Cobbler Ingredients:

  • Sugar: the first ingredient in any great dessert!
  • Flour: All purpose flour works best as the thickening agent
  • Baking powder: increases the volume and lightens the texture
  • Salt: just a dash will enhance the other flavors
  • Milk: moistens the dough and adds protein
  • Butter: adds rich unmistakable flavor
  • Brown sugar: the molasses in this sugar adds moistness
  • Cinnamon: great flavor and loaded with antioxidants
  • Peaches: choose fragrant, smooth, brightly colored that give in to gentle palm pressure

How to Make Cobbler:

  1. Prep: Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Put 1 teaspoon of melted butter into each regular size muffin tin.
  2. Mix ingredients: With a wooden spoon stir together the sugar, flour, baking powder, salt and milk.
  3. Layer the ingredients: Put 2 tablespoons of batter into each muffin tin.
  4. Add Peaches: Add 1 tablespoon diced peaches on top of the batter.
  5. Add Topping: Sprinkle with brown sugar and then cinnamon.
  6. Bake: Place in the oven for 12 minutes.
  7. Let them cool: They should be almost completely cool before taking out of pan. Use a butter knife to loosen the edges then just lift them out.

Variations for Making Mini Cobbler:

  • Sugar Substitutes: If you are skipping white sugar you can replace it and still enjoy this delicious dessert!  You can substitute it for 3/4 cup honey, or 3/4 cups maple syrup or 2/3 cup agave or 1 teaspoon stevia
  • White Flour Substitutes: Substitute the 1 cup all-purpose (white) flour in this recipe with 1 cup soft white wheat also called whole-wheat baking flour.
  • Milk Substitutes: Rice milk, coconut milk, almond milk, soy milk, and hemp milk are great options.  Substitute cup for cup when replacing milk with any of these non-dairy substitute.
  • Fruit Choices: Replace the peaches with other fruit you prefer like mixed berries (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries).

Tips on Making the Best Peach Cobbler:

If your peaches are extra juicy and you feel your cobblers are too runny you can add a pinch of corn starch to thicken it up.  Start with a very small amount and put the cobblers back into the oven.  The heat of the oven combined with the corn starch will thicken it up.

  1. ALYSSA, I FOLLOWED YOU BACK!! I THINK FATE HAD A HAND IN THIS TODAY, I AM ON DAY 2 OF NOT SMOKING, I HAVE BEEN SMOKING SINCE I WAS 11 WHICH MAKES IT 35 YEARS…I GUESS THAT THIS HAS NOT BEEN MY BEST DAY, MY MOM AND MY KID ARE TIP TOEING TONIGHT. THESE ARE THE TWO PEOPLE I LOVE MOST IN THE WORLD. I FIND YOUR COMMENT, ANSWER YOU THEN HERE I AM AND WHAT DO I SEE???? TINY PEACH COBBLERS…I AM HEARING ANGELS SINGING!! THE BEST I’M SORRY I AM EVIL FOOD FOR THE TWO OF THEM EVER!! THANK YOU!!

  2. i just came across your adorable blog! i’m now following you and i would love if you checked out my blog and followed back 🙂 i love this recipe for two reasons: 1) they are mini which makes them adorable looking and perfect for a party and 2) it is easy…i love fast and easy recipes!

  3. These mini peach cobblers looks so delicious! What a fun idea. Thanks for sharing this recipe with us! We are so thrilled to have you link up to our “Strut Your Stuff Saturday”. We hope to see you again next week! -The Sisters

  4. So I just found you yesterday and love what I’m reading and finding from you so far. I just wanted to say one thing and that is that I love that you give a little description of why you made this recipe and how it affected your life, but then when you give the directions on how to make them, it’s all to the point and straight-forward. I love that! I write all of these recipes in my personal cookbook for future purposes and I hate having to read through a paragraph of directions just to write down “preheat at 350 and mix all wet ingredients together in separate bowl.” Thanks! 🙂

  5. First time bakers — use second muffin tin as there is enough batter for 18-22 muffin tins. And don’t overfill though it appears in the photo the tins are nearly full before baking. Taste was yummy!

  6. First time bakers – recipe makes enough batter for 18-22 muffins so use second muffin tin and don’t overfill though it looks like the tins are full. Go easy on the brown sugar unless you like really sweet. Turned out yummy.

  7. I am wanting to make something to share with a class of mine…this looks amazing! I’m wondering if anyone has made it using paper cupcake holders??? This would seriously help in the ease of transportation and less mess with eating…but don’t want to ruin a batch trying it with them if it wont work. I’m also wondering if using the paper liners would change the baking time at all???

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

  8. hello love the recipe I tried they didn’t look like yours but the taste was awesome do u have a recipe for the peach cobbler cupcakes

  9. I just made these tonight and they are absolutely heavenly!

    Pros:
    1. Incredibly easy to make
    2. Yet looks incredibly professional when done baking
    3. Yummy with vanilla ice cream 😉
    4. Lovely flavour – Peach counterbalances the sweetness
    5. Bite sized so it does not completely fill you (And also makes it less sinful for us perpetual dieters ;))

    Cons:
    1. Can never get enough of it!

    If you haven’t made it yet, you really need to 🙂 Thanks for the good recipe, Alyssa.

  10. I made these last night as a trial run for a wedding reception. I used paper cupcake liners. I mixed the butter with the batter though. Unfortunately, my peaches sunk to the bottom. Not sure why and I guess if I hadn’t used the paper liners it would have worked ok but, since it’s for a reception that won’t work for me. So, I’m going to do another trial run tonight and bake them almost complete and then add the peaches and the brown sugar and then complete cooking them.
    . Wish me luck. These are perfect for a rustic wedding reception and they were delicious last night 🙂

  11. Baking them right now and cannot wait to eat them! Only at 12 minutes, mine were not ready to come out. So, I’ve added a few minutes and will be checking them. They are really cute! Can’t wait ’till they’re done! 😉

  12. This cobbler’s flavor was excellent! I experimented with the baking vessel, as I was making these for a dinner party at a friend’s house and needed the cobblers to travel well and look cute & appetizing for serving. I baked them 3 ways:
    1) right in the muffin pan, as the recipe suggests (took 23 min to achieve a slightly browned crust)
    – stuck to the pan too much
    2) in cupcake liners in the muffin pan (23-25 min)
    – easy to remove the liners
    3) in half pint mason jars (25 min)
    – looked yummy but the inside of the jars looked a little “messy”
    – also didn’t get the yummy browned edges that the ones cooked in the muffin pan had

    In the end, I baked the cobblers in the cupcake liners, removed the liners when cool and placed them in the little mason jars for transporting and serving. It was the cleanest look and allowed people to see the details of the cobblers inside. I served it with mini Blue Bell homemade vanilla ice cream containers on the side. My friends (as well as my husband & 5-year-old daughter) LOVED this dessert! I usually insist on vanilla ice cream when I eat cobbler, but this didn’t even need it. It didn’t have the bitter aftertaste that many cobblers seem to have (not sure if that’s from baking powder or shortening or what???). I am a very tough critic, and I loved this dessert and will definitely make it again. Thank you!!

  13. Started making these only to realize someone had eaten my canned peaches, with everything else already ready I diced up a red apple and used that instead. I had to cook longer, the top just didn’t look or feel done but they were so delicious!

  14. I have made these twice and my cook time has doubled. At your 12 minutes they are still very wet and uncooked. But when finished at 22 minutes they are very Yummy!!

  15. I just come across your recipe it looks good. Just wanting to know if you can use different fruit in it and can you use paper liners?
