Deliciously Decadent (and Easy) Cherry Peach Cobbler

Dessert is my favorite food group. I am a card carrying member of the eat dessert club. However, I know that I can’t just feed the family dessert so I end up spending most of my time on real food with little time to make my favorite part. So many desserts have tons of ingredients and steps so I only make them rarely if ever. The great thing about this cobbler is that it uses fruit (in season or frozen) and ingredients you have in your pantry. It also comes together really quickly so it is the perfect dessert to make for a week night.

Cherries and peaches are a fruit match made in heaven. Add in a bit of butter and a almond flavored cobbler topping and you bliss. The whole family gave this two big thumbs up so I’m sure it will be requested again soon. Don’t like cherries? Check out my Peach Cobbler recipe.

Cherries and peaches are the perfect summer fruits to make into cobbler. 


  • 1/2 cup salted butter

Cobbler Dough

  • 1 cup whole wheat or all purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tsp almond extract


  • 4 cups fresh or frozen peaches, peeled
  • 2 cups sweet red cherries, pitted and halved
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 Tbsp Lemon Juice
  • 2 tsp cinnamon, to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Place butter in a 11x13 baking dish and place in the oven to melt the butter.
  3. Remove pan from oven once butter is melted and set aside.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and sugar.
  5. Add milk and almond extract and stir until just combined.
  6. Meanwhile in a medium saucepan, combine fruits, sugar and lemon juice.
  7. Bring to a boil over medium high heat.
  8. Pour cobbler dough batter into the pan over the butter.
  10. Pour the boiling fruit over the batter.
  11. DO NOT STIR.
  12. Sprinkle cinnamon over the cobbler to taste and again do not stir.
  13. Bake for 40 - 50 minutes or until the top of the cobbler is golden brown and firm.
  14. Serve with ice cream.


Layering the cobbler in the order that the instructions outline doesn't make sense but it totally works. Make sure not to stir. Your cobbler will end up with the fruit on the bottom and the dough on top. Trust me.
