Individual Mini Peach Cobbler

My heart (and stomach) is calling for some warm cobbler filled with fresh peaches topped with vanilla ice cream, but in portion control fashion…a.k.a Individual Peach Cobbler!

You know how it is…

Summer is here, fresh peaches are juicy and sweet and perfect, and all you want is a good, solid peach dessert that will scratch that itch.

But you don’t want to be tempted by a large casserole of peach cobbler sitting in your fridge for days, because you know you don’t need that much cobbler in a seven day span in your life.

But you still so desperately want cobbler.

You know, the classic dessert that is gooey, sweet and warm on the inside, covered with a caramelized crusty, cake-y topping and then topped with vanilla ice cream.

So summer-y, so dreamy. I could eat multiple bowls of this at a time. But I will not. I will not.

Just like Chocolate Mug Cake and Mini Chocolate Chess Pie, that’s really the whole point of this “individual” peach cobbler thing…

Let’s make Individual Peach Cobbler

Peach cobbler is seriously one of my all-time favorite desserts.

Warm peached topped with clobber topping and topped with vanilla ice cream

If fresh peaches were available all year round, I would be eating this dessert all year round.

I was sad when I couldn’t convinced my husband to have a peach cobbler bar instead of cake for our wedding, because that man loves his cakes.

So yeah…I really do love this cobbler thing with my whole dang heart. That’s why I put so much energy into figuring out how to make these little small ones.

There are two of us in this household. A whole casserole of peach cobbler and me alone in the house is a dangerous situation.

In addition, the beauty of making small portions is that it really does simplify the whole baking/cooking process.

Plus, you’ll find this to be a fairly light dessert, not crazy sweet, and you’ll leave feeling like it’s just enough to scratch that dessert itch, without that heavy feeling in your stomach.

Here’s all you need:

  • Prepare the flour mixture in a small bowl
  • Prepare peach + sugar mixture in another small bowl
  • Two 6 oz ramekins with melted butter
A bowl of cobbler flour topping, a bowl of sliced peaches with sugar, and two ramekins with melted butter

No large mixing bowls needed. You don’t really even need a whisk – a fork should suffice. And yes, easy cleanup – which is always a win in my books…anybody else feeling that way?

Simplicity is the word of the day.

Assemble cobbler by adding peaches + sugar into the ramekins, and then pour the mixture onto the top of the peaches.

If flour mixture doesn’t completely cover all the peaches that is okay too. Then send it to the oven to bake!

How to serve it

As for how to serve this, peach cobbler goes hand in hand with vanilla ice cream.

I don’t eat peach cobbler without vanilla ice cream.

It’s just not complete. It just doesn’t make sense.

That warm gooey cobbler with a crusty topping is made for the creamy cold ice cream melting all over it.

And if you really really want to, you can also serve with cool whip or whipped cream if you are not in the mood for ice cream. I am not that person, but that’s okay we can still be friends. 😉

Something creamy and cold is a good fit for this dreamy yum thing.

I call this my blissful summer indulgence….

Indulge, my friends!

Ingredients

Cobbler Mixture

  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/8 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1/8 cup milk
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract

Peach Mixture

  • 1 cup peaches sliced
  • 1/8 cup granulated sugar

Other

  • 2 scoops vanilla ice cream or more!

Instructions

  • Pre-heat oven to 350ºF.
  • Prepare two 6 oz ramekins by adding 1 tbsp of butter to each ramekin. Bring to pre-heated oven to melt butter. Remove promptly once melted (should take only a few minutes).
  • In a small bowl, bring together all the dry mixture for cobbler – flour, 1/8 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt. Mix well.
  • Dig a hole in the middle of the dry mixture and add wet mixture – milk and vanilla extra. Combine until there are no lumps in the mixture.
  • In another bowl, combine sliced peaches and 1/8 cup sugar.
  • Evenly divide peach mixture into two ramekins. Then top both ramekins with cobbler topping.
  • Place ramekins on baking tray or cookie sheet to avoid drippings onto the bottom of the oven. Bake for 30 minutes. Then broil for 3 minutes to brown the top (optional).
  • Cool for 5-10 minutes.
  • Serve with vanilla ice cream and enjoy!

Notes

If using canned peaches, drained liquid and omit 1/8 sugar added to peaches (assuming canned peaches are already sweetened).

    This was so delicious and the perfect size! I just added a little cinnamon to the peaches. I will definitely make this a lot this summer!

    This was the best dessert I’ve had in a long time! Love the size and it was perfect for my husband and I!

    1. Joyous Apron says:

      That’s awesome! Thank you for sharing! 🙂

  3. Sorry, but I am a novice baker so I get confused without specific instructions . . .
    After melting the butter in the ramekins, what do you do with it? Do you just add the peaches directly into the melted butter? or do you mix the melted butter into the topping mixture with the other “wet” ingredients?
    Thank you.

    1. Joyous Apron says:

      Yes – add peaches directly onto the melted butter! Let me know how it turns out when you make it!

    I love that you wanted a peach cobbler bar at your wedding! Maybe for your 25th anniversary! You can do both! Love this idea! And this cobbler is so easy and delish!

    It was delicious but I needed for 6 people so I had to triple the recipe using the measurements for 2 (3 times). Went great with Vanilla Bean ice cream!

    1. Joyous Apron says:

      Definitely really yummy with vanilla ice cream! 🙂 Glad to hear that you enjoyed it!

    Made this delicious peach cobbler recipe over the weekend for my family and it was amazing! I doubled the ingredients to make for all four of us and other than that little bit if math it was super easy! Peach cobbler is one of our favorite desserts and it was so satisfying to be able to make it at home. Recommended for anyone looking to make something delicious yet simple. Thank you, chef, for sharing this recipe!

    Can I freeze this to reheat later? If so, at what step do you recommend freezing?

    1. Joyous Apron says:

      Hi Morgan, yes you can. Let it cool completely, cover with aluminum foil and plastic wrap so that it is air tight, and freeze. When ready to bake, bring it to a complete defrost before heating it.

    Made this tonight for dessert and it was amazing! I added some fresh ginger and dash or chili powder to the peaches and served with a crème anglais. Smash hit!

    1. Joyous Apron says:

      Yum! Sounds AMAZING! Thank you for sharing and so glad you enjoyed this.

    I want to make this a little ahead before my company comes. Can I put it all together and refrigerate it until I am ready to bake it?

    1. Joyous Apron says:

      Absolutely!

  13. Randy Immel says:

    Can this be made using a muffin pan instead? with or without the muffin liners. I do baking for a food pantry and using ramekins just wouldn’t be feasible. And if it is ok, then how to increase recipe for say a 24 cupcake pan? just increase by 12?

    1. Joyous Apron says:

      Hi there, you can use muffin tin. The ramekin would hold more than a standard 2 1/2 diameter muffin tin so I don’t think you’ll need to increase recipe by 12 for 24 cupcake pan. Maybe try just increasing by 6 or 8? I haven’t tried this so this is an estimate, but please give us your feedback and let us know what ends up working best!

    Do you skin the peaches if you’re using fresh ones?

    1. Joyous Apron says:

      Either way is fine but I prefer skinning it!

  15. Can I pre-make these and save in fridge to bake later?

    1. Joyous Apron says:

      Yes! That should be fine!

  16. Joelle Chiodini says:

    5 stars
    This was delicious and just the perfect amount! We’ve limited our sugar intake so this was a splurge for us to end the summer – well worth it!

    1. Joyous Apron says:

      I’m so glad you enjoyed this recipe! Thank you for sharing!

  17. If I use a 15oz can of peaches, do I split the whole can between the 2 ramekins or do I only use about half of the can?

    1. Joyous Apron says:

      Hi Karina, I would drain the liquid and measure 1 cup of peaches and use only that 1 cup of peaches.
