My childhood summers had a few important certainties to which I anchored my June and July: jumping on the trampoline with a garden hose when my mom wasn’t home; riding our bikes to buy $1 shaved Hawaiian ice; my Grammy’s fresh peach cobbler. Today’s Crock Pot Peach Cobbler is inspired by her classic recipe.

Crock Pot Peach Cobbler — This recipe is so EASY and it tastes amazing! Just dump the ingredients into your slow cooker and walk away. Tastes like a peach dump dessert, but so much better — made with real ingredients and fresh peaches instead of boxed cake mix or canned. @wellplated

If you are familiar with the concept of a peach dump cake or dump dessert (usually made with boxed cake mix and canned peaches), this crock pot peach cobbler recipe is similar, but with one critical difference.

Today’s recipe uses real, non-processed ingredients and fresh peaches. Its flavor and texture radically outshines anything you can find in a box, and, thanks to the slow cooker, it’s still quick and easy to make!

About This Tasty Crock Pot Peach Cobbler

The cobbler’s fresh burst with juicy nectar.

The topping is bubbly, buttery, and golden (as it is in classic Peach Cobbler). Once you’ve added a scoop of vanilla ice cream (or as we do in my family, a generous splash of heavy cream), I suspect that your reaction will be the same as my friend Matt’s upon his first bite: “I never want this to end.”

In case the promise of fresh summer peaches floating beneath a golden crust of sweet, buttery intoxication isn’t enough to woo you, perhaps the ease of this recipe will. (And if you want fresh peaces to woo you at breakfast too, Peach Pancakes does both!)

Like a dump cake, you simply pour the cobbler ingredients into your slow cooker, turn it on, and let the crock pot do the cooking. (Try this Crock Pot Apple Crisp for a taste of the crock pot’s heroism.)

Layer the peaches in the bottom of the crock pot, scatter the dry ingredients over them, then place the butter pieces on top.

That’s it! No need to heat the oven, dirty an extra bowl, or even mix.

Crock Pot Peach Cobbler – Simple Yet Perfect

The beauty of this crock pot peach cobbler is its simplicity.

Resist the urge to “improve” it. Do not add nutmeg or cinnamon or ginger or lemon zest or any other ingredient that tempts you.

It’s the fresh peaches here that shine, and they taste fabulous all on their own.

Although I’m not certain if my Grammy owns a crock pot, I’m positive that this recipe would please her.

It would also delight my sister, who loves fresh peach cobbler so much, she requests on her birthday, instead of cake.

This crock pot peach cobbler recipe is also delicious with frozen peaches (no need to thaw them first), though if you are making it anywhere in the neighborhood of peach season, I heartily encourage you to try it with fresh peaches first.

Whatever you do, please do not use canned peaches—the extra syrup will make the peach cobbler excessively sweet and goopy, and the flavor of the dessert will not compare.

Easy Crock Pot Peach Cobbler recipe. This slow cooker peach cobbler is loaded with flavor, fresh peaches, and a golden crusty top. Simple and delicious!

Prep: 30 minutes
Cook: 2 hours
Total: 2 hours 30 minutes

Servings: 10 servings


  • 8 medium ripe fresh peaches you will need 4-5 cups sliced peaches total
  • 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar divided
  • 3/4 cup white whole wheat flour or substitute all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder I prefer aluminum free
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter (1 stick), cut into thin slices
  • Vanilla ice cream frozen yogurt, Greek yogurt, or heavy cream (how we grew up eating peach cobbler) for serving


  • To quickly and easily peel the peaches: Bring a very large pot with enough water to cover the peaches to a boil. While the water comes to a boil, prepare an ice bath by placing a handful of ice cubes in a large bowl and then filling it with cold water. Once the water is boiling, with a slotted spoon or tongs to protect your fingers, gently lower the peaches into the water. Add the peaches in two batches so that the water temperature does not rapidly drop. Boil for 1 minute. Remove peaches from the pot and plunge into the ice bath to stop the cooking. The skins can now be easily slipped off with your fingers. Cut peaches into 1/2-inch wide slices, then place into a large mixing bowl. (I like to dump out the ice bath bowl, then place the peach slices in it to save myself a dish). If you prefer, you can peel the peaches with a vegetable peeler. Lightly coat a 6-quart slow cooker with cooking spray.
  • Sprinkle the peaches with 1/4 cup granulated sugar and stir gently to coat. Spoon the peaches and any juices into the slow cooker.
  • In a separate bowl, stir together the remaining 1 cup sugar, white whole wheat flour, all purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Sprinkle evenly over the top of the peaches, then arrange the butter slices over the top. Lay a sheet of paper towel or kitchen towel over the top of the crock pot so that it overhangs the sides and will stay in place once the slow cooker is covered**. (This absorbs moisture and allows the top to crisp). Cover and cook for 2-3 hours on high or 4 hours on low, until the peaches are tender and the top is lightly golden. Serve warm with topped with vanilla ice cream, Greek yogurt, or a splash of heavy cream.


  • All slow cookers differ in temperature, so adjust the cooking time according to your experience. Cooking time may vary base on the make and model of your slow cooker.
  • This recipe can also be made in the oven. Prepare the cobbler filling and spread it in a greased 9×13-inch dish. For the topping, melt the butter. Stir the dry ingredients together, then stir in the melted butter until the crumbs are evenly moistened. Sprinkle over the top and bake at 350 degrees F for 35-45 minutes, until the peaches are tender and the topping is golden and crisp.
  • **DISCLAIMER: Please note that using a towel with a slow cooker could be a fire hazard. Proceed at your own risk.  I have done it many times over the years with different recipes and different slow cookers and have never had an issue. That said, different slow cookers can reach different temperatures. If this is your first time using the towel method with your slow cooker, I recommend checking the towel an hour into cooking to be sure that it isn’t too hot.

  1. I enjoyed learning the blanching technique but the crust was rather gummy. I used the towel and did about 3 hours on high. I followed the recipe exactly. Perhaps it cooked too long? I wish it would have had some cinnamon or other spices in it, or oats and brown sugar. Something was missing. I put it in my morning oatmeal with cinnamon and that was delicious!2 stars

    1. I’m sorry to hear you didn’t enjoy the recipe, Kate. Many other readers have tried it and loved it, but I know everyone has different tastes. I truly wish you would have loved it! It sounds like to me that it needed to cook longer.

  2. I love this recipe! So simple and delicious and the crust turned out beautifully. I cooked on low for four hours in my crockpot. I had no idea about using a kitchen towel for a crispy crust…genius! I did make one adjustment and that was to use coconut sugar instead of regular granulated sugar which gave the cobbler a hint of a caramel crust…my husband thought it was fabulous and he can usually take or leave sweets…I’m making this today with fresh peaches and love how my kitchen will smell as it cooks into a delicious treat! If you have any reservations about making this i highly encourage you to try it.5 stars

  3. First time making this, and it was delicious! I modified by adding blackberries and strawberries to the peaches, plus cinnamon, ginger powder and a touch of vanilla extract. I subbed coconut sugar for regular white sugar.

    So glad I can enjoy a homemade cobbler on a hot summer’s day without using the oven, thank goodness for slow cookers. And the towel trick worked really well – the crust was golden brown and buttery.5 stars

    1. Hi Mary! I haven’t tried it myself, but you could probably use the 1:1 gluten free flour substitute and it should work. If you decide to experiment, let me know how it goes!

  4. I made this today. I had purchased 25lbs of peaches from the Peach Truck and needed to find other uses for them. I am glad I read the comments before I made it. I dusted the top of the peaches with some cinnamon and fresh nutmeg and added both into the topping mixture. I did cook it longer than the recommendations of the directions and did change the paper towels twice during the slow cooking. It came out fabulous. I will certainly make this again.5 stars

  5. Do you use whole wheat flour AND all purpose flour? Or just one or the other. Wasn’t sure from recipe.

    1. Hi Valerie, you could do either. It’s listed as 3/4 cup white whole wheat flour and 1/2 cup all purpose flour. Or you can substitute the white whole wheat and use only all purpose flour. Hope this helps!

    1. Sorry to hear that you had trouble with the recipe, Brn eyed girl. The amounts, flavorings and timing have worked well for myself (and others) so I wished it would have been a hit for you too! I know it can be so disappointing to try a new recipe and it does not turn out for you.
