Peach Cobbler for Summer (and for One)

Peach Cobbler For One

Personally, Peach Cobbler is just great for what I call ‘a reading breakfast’ on the week-end. It’s fresh and satisfying, full of good flavors and easy to make.

This dessert/snack/breakfast is always welcomed, especially during summer time. Indeed, not anyone wants a ‘heavy’ piece of cake’ when it’s hot outside, but that doesn’t mean you want something with ice-cream too! Somewhere between the two, there are the fruit bakes, and there is Peach Cobbler.

This recipe is very simple, of course, but what’s great about this recipe, is that it is just for one person. Yeah, you can make a very easy Peach Cobbler for One.

Prefer fresh peaches to make this bake (obviously because it tastes better and it’s in season :)) but if you can’t, feel free to change for canned peaches.

Are you ready to do a little bake and have many bites?

The topping is simply the one I used to make my Single Serving Scone, just this time I rolled it thinner for the biscuit to expand and not rise.

For the peach filling:

  • 2 medium peaches -quartered-
  • 10 g cornstarch 2 tsp
  • 5 g brown sugar 1 tsp
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 5 g golden syrup -optional- 1 tsp

For the topping:

  • 40 g all-purpose flour 1/4 cup + 1 tbsp
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 5 g granulated sugar 1 tsp
  • 7 g unsalted butter 1/2 tbsp
  • 30 ml whole milk -or buttermilk- 2 tbsp


  1. Preheat the oven at 350°F (180°C) and grease a small ramekin, about 4 to 6 inches in diameter.

  2. For the peach filling:

    In a medium bowl, mix the peaches, cornstarch, brown sugar and cinnamon.

  3. Put the peaches in the greased ramekin, and add the golden syrup on the top, without mixing.

  4. Bake for 10 minutes while you make the topping.

  5. For the topping:

    In a little bowl, mix the flour, baking powder and sugar.

  6. Add the butter in little chunks and crumble it with your hands. 

  7. With a rubber spatula, fold the milk and mix a little. When a dough forms, you can (and should) finish with your hands.

  8. Form a round shape; and flatten with your floured hands (no need to be perfect of course); try to have a dough thinner than for baking powder biscuits/scones.

  9. Remove the peaches from the oven and turn it up to 420°F (220°C) for 2 minutes.

  10. Top the peaches with the topping, and sprinkle with a little mix of granulated sugar and cinnamon if desired.

  11. Bake for 10 more minutes until golden brown. Remove, let cool 2 minutes and enjoy right away.

  1. This sounds really good and I plan to try it. What is golden syrup?
    Thank you for posting recipes for one serving. I live alone and it is hard to cook for just one. I will check your site often now that I know you have 1-serving recipes.

    1. Hello Evelyn, thank you so much for stopping by. Golden syrup is a thick sugar syrup, often used in British baking. You can replace it with maple syrup or honey if you wish 🙂
