Fresh Peach Pudding Recipe
This comforting Fresh Peach Pudding Recipe is more like a cobbler than a pudding and a tasty way to shake up your summer desserts.
At the end of last month, I purchased a partial bushel of peaches with the intent to freeze them. As I snacked on the juicy fruit, the desire to bake up a dessert overtook my previous intentions. I spotted this unusual Peach Dessert in my emails, and made it for a family dinner!
Fresh Peach Pudding Recipe
Though this recipe was called a pudding, it’s nothing like the smooth creamy chocolate or vanilla pudding that comes to mind. And the technique is definitely unusual.
Fresh peach slices are tossed with a cinnamon-spiced mixture of flour, sugar, leavening, and milk and placed in a casserole dish. Then a boiled sugar syrup is poured over the fruit before baking in a hot oven for nearly an hour. The aroma of peach pie filled my kitchen having to break a sweat rolling out a pie crust!
A Twist on Peach Cobbler
The first time I made this Peach Pudding was after my dear mother-in-law’s funeral. The time surrounded by our wonderful family provided much-needed comfort, but I was still exhausted upon our return home. At least that’s where I’m placing the blame as I forgot to add the milk to the batter.
The results were still delicious, much like a peach cobbler, but I remade it to make sure it worked properly as written. The looser batter was definitely an improvement. If you want a new stone fruit recipe, this “cobbler” is a winner. You might also like this Peach Upside-Down Cake.

- Ice Cream Scoop (My favorite ice cream scoop)
- 8 x 8 Square Baker (Revol makes classic white ceramic bakeware which never goes out of style!)
Fresh Peach Pudding
An out of the ordinary peach cobbler, adapted from Taste of Home
- 1 cup flour
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 cup milk
- 3 cups sliced peeled peaches
- 1-1/2 cups water
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon butter
- Preheat oven to 400º. Grease an 8x8-inch or a comparable sized baking dish. Set aside.
- In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Stir in the milk just until combined. Gently fold in the peaches. Spread into the bottom of prepared pan and place on a rimmed baking sheet.
- In a large saucepan, combine the water, both sugars, and butter. Bring to a boil, stirring until the sugars are dissolved. Pour over the peaches. Bake for 40-50 minutes or until filling is bubbly. Serve with a scoop of ice cream, if desired.
Make with ripe, fragrant seasonal peaches. Using underripe or mealy peaches will result in a substandard dessert.

It was a really huge hit at my house! So good and delicious!
This tempting dessert is yet another reminder that I didn’t get my fill of peaches this season.
It may be unusual but it looks great.
Pudding as you probably knows is British English for dessert…And yours looks and sounds divine…And you are an angel to be so diligent and remake the peach wonder. Grieving and traveling does wear one down…Or at least that’s my experience. Sending prayers to you, Bill and your family <3
I have never appreciated peaches because the ones we get over here (imported) are not at their optimum best. But I reckon, with added sugar and baked like that it would taste really good. A scoop or two of vanilla ice-cream would guarantee to make it go down real easy!
I am sorry for your loss, Liz. I also lost two wonderful in-laws. 🙁 This peach pudding sounds absolutely delicious!
The peaches were so good this year, beautiful peach pudding. So sorry about your MIL……
Sorry to hear about your MIL. This peach pudding looks absolutely stunning and delicious. Love peaches in everything so I can tell I am gonna love this! 🙂
Thanks for this recipe~! Our peaches haven’t been great, but I’ll give some nectarines a try.
I love this peach pudding, it looks super yummy. I am with you on baking with peaches. I love baking with peaches.
Uh, that looks DIVINE. Had it been me baking post-funeral, I suspect I would have left out the peaches. That’s just how my brain is. When stressed, I get super sleepy and can’t function at all. Thus, I’m banned from the kitchen until things are under control…
Anything with cobbler-esque components in the midst of it is a must-try in my book! So glad you didn’t freeze those peaches–this looks divine!
I love this peach pudding Lizzy and I can’t wait we have peaches here. Look delicious!!
I am such a sucker for peaches, Liz. Just can’t get enough. Your pudding/cobbler looks divine. I imagine it warm with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream.
It looks so juicy and awesome!
This pudding looks like real goodness! Looks so tempting ♥
Lovely dessert using peaches!

This pudding/cobbler sounds wonderful and will definitely be on my fall baking list.
