Soft, aromatic, and juicy peaches slow cooked with a spongy cake topping … all without turning on the oven. Hot summer days are for enjoying all that summer is about, like ripe peaches, and the more time we have enjoying summer is definitely a good thing. Let this Slow Cooker Peach Cobbler lean into summer with all the right flavours.
Summer is me standing over the sink while eating a ripe peach so all the juices get caught – one of my favourite ways to eat peaches. This Slow Cooker Peach Cobbler recipe is now tied as one of my favourite ways to enjoy peaches this summer season.
Peach season is short, running from the last week of July to the first week of September so I’m planning to pack in as many peach recipes as I can, including this easy peach cobbler recipe.
This Slow Cooker Peach Cobbler recipe tastes amazing, but the smell of it cooking produces the most glorious aromas. There’s lemon juice to add a touch of acid, but the pinch of cinnamon in the recipe makes it smell so delicious.
My favourite part of making this easy peach cobbler was when I broke through the spongy cake-like topping and released the steam from the peaches cooking away. SO. GOOD.
Why use a slow cooker? This summer has been HOT for us West Coast folks and there’s nothing like producing a dessert made for a scoop of ice cream without turning on the oven.
Is ice cream required? No, but anything creamy-like would be simply delicious with this homemade peach cobbler. Heavy liquid cream, whipped cream, yogurt, etc. will knock your socks off with this the bright peach flavours and brown sugar infused spongy cake topping.
Cobbler you say? I say YES. It’s like a cake, ice cream, and a perfectly peachy sauce all in one. Kind of like the most epic dessert ever. The top is a super soft and spongy cake with brown sugar flavouring (one of the best flavours to pair with peaches) that seeps into the peaches as they cook away.
To avoid any soggy cake, ensure a single layer of paper towel is pulled taut under the lid of the slow cooker. This will catch any moisture (condensation) that builds up in the slow cooker.
We’re lucky to be able to look for the BC Tree Fruits sticker leaf and know that we’re sourcing quality ripe peaches from local growers. Supporting local farming families is always on my mind when grocery shopping and even more so when looking for seasonal produce like peaches. I know I can rest easy when I buy BC Tree Fruits peaches.

Easy and quick to prepare Slow Cooker Peach Cobbler recipe! Packed with juicy, sweet peaches and has a spongy cake topping.
- 8 cups sliced peaches (skin left on) approx. 8 medium sized peaches
- 2 tbsp brown sugar
- 1 medium lemon, zest and juice about 3-4 tbsp lemon juice and 2 tsp lemon zest
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 pinch kosher salt
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
- 3/4 cup milk (whole or 2% preferred)
Grease slow cooker with butter or spray with non-stick spray.
Gently toss sliced peaches, brown sugar, lemon zest, and lemon juice together and place in the bottom of a slow cooker. Gently move peaches around to create a somewhat even layer.
In a large bowl, whisk together all-purpose flour, brown sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add melted butter and milk and mix quickly with a wooden spoon or spatula until smooth.
Pour cake mixture on top of peach layer and smooth, carefully covering peaches. Place a single layer of paper towel* under the lid of the slow cooker, pulling it taut.
Cover with lid (and paper towel layer) and set slow cooker to low for 4-6 hours or high for 2.5-3.5 hours.
Carefully remove lid and serve with ice cream, cream, or yogurt.
* the layer of paper towel prevents the cake from becoming soggy during the cooking process.
