Almond Peach Cobbler

Posted on : July 12th, 2019

Did you know that almonds and peaches are related to each other? They are both part of the botanical family Prunus that includes almonds, peaches, plums, cherries, and apricots. One way you can remember that is that—similar to peaches— what we call the almond nut is actually the seed inside the stone (or pit) of the almond fruit. The peach pit has a seed inside, too, called the “peach kernel” that also looks very much like an almond. We don’t eat those but we do eat almonds, and that made me think about desserts that might combine members of the Prunus family together. That’s why recipes for Almond Peach Cobbler came across my radar.

I love cobblers! They were one of the first desserts I learned to make as a little girl because you don’t have to have a lot of baking skills. No pie dough to roll and place neatly in place with tiny child hands. But a wonderful delicious pay-off once it comes out of the oven again! And you can make them with pretty much any combination of fruit that you want.

I’ve had tropical summer cobblers made with mangos, pineapples, and banana, strawberry rhubarb cobblers early in the spring. Apple cobblers are, of course, classic but have you tried cherry or apricot? All good, every one. So even though this recipe calls for peaches, use any fruit you want including fruit mixes like peaches and blueberries as the photo I chose shows.

Almond Peach Cobbler


  • 4 cups fresh or frozen fruit (about 2 pounds), partially thawed if frozen, sliced or chopped as desired
  • 1/3 cup (and 2 tbsp more, if desired, to sprinkle on the fruit)
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup (4 tablespoons) butter, softened slightly
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup low fat milk
  • 1/2 cup chopped Maisie Jane’s whole natural almonds
  • Vanilla ice cream or whipped cream for a topping (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. 
  2. Arrange fruit in the bottom of a 9×9-inch, 8×8-inch or 11×7-inch baking dish. Sprinkle up to 2 Tbsp of sugar on the fruit if desired (I never do). Set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.  Mix together with a fork and set aside.
  4. In a mixing bowl, beat together butter and remaining 1/3 cup sugar until blended and smooth.  Beat in egg and vanilla.  Beat in half of the flour mixture.  Beat in milk.  Beat in remaining flour mixture and almonds. 
  5. Drop spoonfuls of the batter on top of the fruit, leaving a ½-inch border all around the edge of the dish to leave room for expansion.
  6. Bake 40-45 minutes, until top is golden brown and fruit is tender and bubbly.
  7. Let cool 5 to 10 minutes before serving with ice cream or whipped cream, if desired.
