When it comes to desserts, you want to make sure that every bite is absolutely perfect. But what if you’re missing an ingredient, or you want to put your own spin on a classic recipe? Fear not, as there are plenty of substitutions and variations that you can experiment with when making this vegan peach cobbler.

For a gluten-free option, use gluten-free all-purpose flour instead of whole wheat pastry flour. You can also use a blend of almond flour and tapioca starch for a nutty and crispy texture.

If you’re looking for a healthier option, swap out the vegan butter for coconut oil or mashed banana. This will add some natural sweetness without compromising the flavor.

For a more fruity punch, mix in some blueberries or raspberries with the sliced peaches. This will give the cobbler texture and a beautiful rich color.

You could also try adding some chopped nuts like pecans or walnuts to the crumble topping. This will add some delicious crunch and nuttiness to the dessert.

If you’re feeling adventurous, switch up the spices by adding cardamom or ginger. These spices will add warm flavors and ensure a unique twist on this timeless classic.

Finally, why not pair your vegan peach cobbler with some plant-based ice cream? This dessert combination is sure to delight, while keeping your palette refreshed and happy.

Make-Ahead, Storing and Reheating

As someone who loves to cook, I know that sometimes you just don’t have time to whip up a dessert right before serving it. That’s why I love recipes that can be prepared in advance, and this fresh peach cobbler is no exception! Not only can you make the filling ahead of time, but you can also prepare the topping and assemble the cobbler, too.

To make ahead the filling, simply combine your sliced peaches with sugar and lemon juice in a large bowl. Then mix together cornstarch and water until smooth and stir it into the peach mixture. Transfer everything to a baking dish, cover with plastic wrap or foil, and store in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours.

If you want to prepare the topping ahead of time as well, simply mix together flour, sugar, salt, cinnamon and baking powder in a bowl. Then cut in vegan butter until the mixture is crumbly. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 48 hours.

When you’re ready to bake your peach cobbler, preheat your oven as instructed and sprinkle the topping mixture over the peach filling. Bake accordingly until the topping is golden brown and crispy.

If there are any leftovers (which may be rare), storing them properly is essential to keep their deliciousness intact. Allow leftover cobbler to cool completely before covering it tightly with foil or plastic wrap and storing it in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.

When reheating, simply place individual portions of cobbler on a microwave-safe plate and microwave for 15 seconds at a time until heated through. Alternatively, place the whole dish of leftover cobbler back into a preheated oven at 350°F (180°C) for 10-12 minutes or until warmed through.

This vegan peach cobbler recipe is suitable for making ahead of time, easy to store and reheat easily—making it perfect for busy weeknights or entertaining! It goes amazing with some plant-based ice cream on top; trust me on this one.

When it comes to creating a delicious vegan peach cobbler, it’s all about the ingredients and technique. Here are some tips to ensure your plant-based dessert turns out just right:

1. Use fresh or frozen peaches: Nothing beats the taste of fresh, ripe peaches; however, if you don’t have access to fresh ones, frozen peaches work well too.

2. Cut the peaches evenly: Slicing the peaches evenly ensures they cook at the same rate, preventing some pieces from becoming mushy while others remain firm.

3. Don’t overmix the batter: Overmixing can create a tough and dense texture in the final product. Mix until just combined for a softer, fluffier cobbler.

4. Choose the right flour: Whole wheat pastry flour is a good option for those looking for a heartier texture, while all-purpose flour produces a lighter cobbler. If you want to make it gluten-free, try using Bob’s Red Mill 1-to-1 Gluten-Free Baking Flour.

5. Experiment with sweeteners: Use cane sugar or brown sugar for a deeper flavor and molasses notes. For a more natural option, try maple syrup or agave nectar.

6. Serve with plant-based ice cream: This is optional but highly recommended. A scoop of vegan vanilla ice cream on top of warm peach cobbler is simply divine!

By following these tips, you’ll be sure to create a mouth-watering vegan peach cobbler that will satisfy any sweet tooth!


Now that you have all the information you need to create a delicious and easy Vegan Peach Cobbler, it’s time to address some common questions that may be lingering in your mind. Below are the top frequently asked questions regarding this recipe, so be sure to read on before you start baking!

Do fresh peaches need to be peeled for cobbler?

When preparing the cobbler recipe, it is recommended to refrain from removing the skin of the peaches. The skin of the peaches adds not only a luscious deep pink color but also enhances the overall flavor. Peaches have softer skins, which seamlessly dissolve and mix with the filling, unlike fruits like apple, where the skin is rough and difficult to incorporate in the filling.

Is it better to use fresh or canned peaches for cobbler?

Whether you have fresh, frozen or canned peaches on hand, this recipe is sure to be a hit. While I recommend utilizing juicy, fresh peaches during summer months for optimal flavor, any type of peach will work just fine in this dish.

Why isn’t my peach cobbler crispy?

There is a common issue when it comes to making peach crisp – keeping the topping crispy. This problem arises as the baked peaches keep releasing juices, causing the topping to lose its crunchiness. It is essential to serve the crisp as soon as it is ready to avoid any sogginess in the topping.

How do you make Patti Labelle’s peach cobbler?

The recipe calls for a stick of unsalted butter, two pre-made pie crusts, a cup of all-purpose flour (with additional flour for dusting), three tablespoons of agave syrup, one and a quarter teaspoons of cinnamon (plus extra for sprinkling), three-fourth a teaspoon of nutmeg, canned sliced peaches totaling to 116 ounces, and some kosher salt.

Bottom Line

In conclusion, this fresh vegan peach cobbler recipe is the perfect dessert to share with family and friends. It’s easy to make, deliciously sweet and satisfying, and can be personalized to suit your tastes by switching up the filling or adding different spices. Plus, it’s a great way to enjoy a classic dessert without sacrificing your plant-based lifestyle.

So why not give this recipe a try? Whether you’re hosting a barbecue or looking for a simple dessert to enjoy on a summer evening, this vegan peach cobbler is sure to impress. Pair it with your favorite dairy-free ice cream, and you’ll have a treat that everyone will love.

So go ahead and indulge in this mouth-watering dessert – you won’t regret it!
