Slow Cooker Peach Cobbler

Is there anything more perfect on a summer day than a bowl full of warm peach cobbler topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream? We’ve finally started to make the transition from strawberry season to peach season in South Carolina.

I don’t have many cooking rituals because I’m always trying new things, but every summer I make peach cobbler. If I haven’t made it by July, my son starts asking- When are you going to make peach cobbler?

Slow Cooker Peach Cobbler

This year I thought I’d try something new- a slow cooked peach cobbler. This was my first experience making a dessert in a slow cooker. I was pleased to find it turned out almost just as well as one made in the oven. The only difference was the texture was a little spongier. Delicious nonetheless.

When making desserts in a slow cooker, a great deal of condensation can form on the lid and fall back on the food, preventing it from “solidifying”. I find that placing layers of paper towels under the lid for the last 30 minutes of cooking time helped. Depending on the heat your slow cooker generates, cooking time could be a little more or less.

Would it be okay to place another layer of peaches and sugar mixture on top of the first? Like to make a party size.

Yes, I would think that would work just fine. Hope you enjoy it!

Yum! I want to try this tonight for a family function. About how many servings does this make?? I’m wondering if I should double the recipe.

You should probably double it because 4 of us finished it off pretty easily. Sorry if I’m too late answering your question!

I’ve never made a dessert in the slow cooker, but I imagine cobbler would be perfectly suited! Looks so good; looks like summer!

It turned out surprisingly well, although I’m not sure there are as many advantages to cooking desserts in a slow cooker as there are with some other dishes.

I am not a peach fan, but I LOVE blueberry cobbler.

I actually like blueberries better than peaches too. Need to make a blueberry cobbler!
