Air frying peach cobbler is so easy and the outcome is more than delicious. It's one of the best summer desserts and you can enjoy it without turning on the oven. This cobbler is made with canned peaches which makes it so easy to make, and you can enjoy it all year round, not just during the peach season. Serve hot with a pinch of cinnamon and a scoop of vanilla ice cream. By the way, have you tried my air fryer banana bread yet?
- Ease - It is definitely one of the easiest cobbler recipes out there. No need to plan ahead and there is no chilling or waiting time involved. Whenever you crave peach cobbler just dump and bake.
- Ingredients - Just basic ingredients that you are likely to have in your pantry.
- Customizable - This recipe also works with other canned fruit. Pineapple is one of my favorites.
- Occasion - its fruity-sweet taste makes it the perfect dessert for summer BBQs, but it is perfect for every occasion and every season.
- Texture - There is no dessert like it. It ranges from a crispy, soft, and slightly sticky, caramelized kind of top layer. Underneath is a buttery, sweet, gooey, and juicy layer with soft peaches. It's just heavenly.
What Kind of Peaches Work Best?
Either canned peaches (in juice - light syrup is a little too sweet for my taste) or fresh, ripe peaches work well. Since peaches are out of season for most of the year, I use canned peaches more often than fresh ones. Canned peaches are soft, juicy, and tasty, and they're so easy to use. However, when peaches are in season, you can of course use them instead.
If you use fresh, ripe peaches, peel and cut them ½ inch (1.3cm) thick, sprinkle them with ¼ cup (50 g) sugar, and let them sit for about 20 minutes, until they soften and release some juice. Then add enough water until you have a total of 1½ cups (360 ml) peaches, released peach juice / sugar syrup, and water. Mix until well combined. Use as directed in the recipe.
If you use frozen peaches, defrost them first and proceed as you would with fresh peaches.
Can it be frozen?
Yes. Simply wrap the baked and cooled cobbler tightly in plastic wrap twice and store in freezer bags or containers. Let it thaw in the refrigerator overnight, then reheat.
Does it need to be refrigerated or can it be left out (overnight)?
If you eat it the same day, you don’t need to refrigerate it. However, if you keep it for more than a day, it needs to be refrigerated and then reheated before serving.
How to reheat it?
Reheat the baking dish at 360°F in the air fryer for 6-10 minutes or reheat individual servings for about 2 minutes.
How to bake it in the oven?
Bake it uncovered at 350°F for 45 minutes. If you find it browning too quickly, you can cover it for the last 15-20 minutes.
Put the butter in an 8-inch (20cm) pan and melt in the air fryer.
Put the flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, and milk in a large bowl and whisk together.
Pour onto the melted butter without stirring. Then pour the canned peaches over it without stirring.
Cover with foil and poke a few holes in the foil to allow the steam to escape.
Bake and let cool down for 10 minutes. Then serve.
