How to make peach cobbler in an air fryer
Air fryer peach cobbler is one of my favorite desserts in summertime. Great for when peaches are in season and you have a bumper crop of ripe peaches to use up, or can pick them up cheaply at the grocery store.
A peach cobbler is also a great dessert when you’re short on time because it’s quick and easy to make, and it’s even quicker if you use your air fryer to cook it! It’s the perfect dessert for those hot summer days when you can’t bear to turn your oven on).

Quantities for all ingredients are given in the recipe card below.
Peaches: you can use fresh peaches, canned or frozen peaches for this recipe. If you are using fresh peaches the it is best to peel them first. If you are using canned peaches in syrup then you do not need to add additional sugar to the fruit, just drain the peaches and they should be sweet enough. Canned peaches in juice can have sugar added if you like.
Sugar: This recipe uses regular granulated sugar, but feel free to swap in any other type of sugar. Soft brown sugar or coconut sugar are both great options.
All purpose flour: All-purpose flour is used for the batter. I don’t recommend substituting bread flour as this will give you a really chewy topping instead of a crumbly cakey topping.
Baking powder: Baking powder helps the cobbler batter to rise as it is cooking. (note: be sure to use baking powder not baking soda!)
Milk: To make the batter. I use regular full-fat dairy milk, but half-and-half is also fine. I haven’t tried using a plant-based milk in this recipe yet, but if you try it please let me know in the comments below!
Butter: the butter is melted in the baking pan while you are preheating the air fryer. Use good quality butter if you can as the beautiful buttery crust is a really key part of this dish.
Ground cinnamon: Gives the dish a lovely warming flavor. You can substitute ground nutmeg or pumpkin spice if you prefer.
For this recipe you need a baking dish that will fit inside your air fryer. The dish needs to have a capacity of around 4 cups. I use a 7×7 inch glass baking dish with a 2 inch depth, but an 8 inch round baking dish should have the right capacity, just make sure it is a deep dish with a depth at least 2 inches.
Step 1: Place peach slices and sugar for the filling in a medium bowl, toss, and set aside. The sugar will draw out some of the juice from the peaches, so the cobbler will be nice and juicy.
Step 2: Place butter in baking dish, and and place the dish into the air fryer basket. Preheat air fryer to 320°F/ 160°C for 3 minutes. This will melt the butter.
Step 3: While the air fryer is preheating, mix the flour, sugar for the batter and the baking powder together with the milk into a thick batter. When the air fryer has finished preheating, open it, carefully pour the batter on top of the butter (no need to remove the baking dish). Then spread the peach mixture evenly over the top of the batter, including any juice that has been drawn out of the peaches. Sprinkle some ground cinnamon on the top.
Step 4: Bake the peach cobbler in the air fryer at 320°F/ 160°C for around 30-35 minutes until it is golden brown and cooked through.
The cook time will vary depending on a number of factors, including the exact size of baking dish you used, and it can sometimes be difficult to tell when a peach cobbler is cooked correctly. If you are unsure you can check the internal temperature with an instant-read thermometer. When it reads 200°F/ 94°C in the center it is ready.
You can serve peach cobbler hot or cold, and either way it is best served with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream. You can also serve it with heavy cream or yogurt, or with a dusting of powdered sugar. But I think most people will agree it is best topped with ice cream!
Storing and reheating
Store any leftover cobbler in an airtight container in the refrigerator and use within 3 days.
You can reheat the cobbler in the air fryer or the microwave. 2-3 minutes in the air fryer, or around 1 minute in the microwave.
