Amazing Peach Dessert Recipes
When was the last time you took a nice, big, juicy bite out of a delicious peach? You bit in, and the sweet flavor filled your mouth. A few drops of juice even dribbled down your chin, and you chuckled as you tried to wipe it up with a napkin.
If your family is anything like mine, they probably love peaches. My kids think they’re the best thing in the world, and I can even get my husband to eat one every now and then. Particularly during the summertime, there’s just something to love about biting into a sweet, juicy peach as you sit on the back deck and enjoy a nice warm evening.
In fact, my family loves peaches so much that I decided to explore more recipes about desserts with peaches in them. I figured that as long as I’m making desserts, I might as well try to include something a little healthy, right? Not to mention, peaches tend to be a favorite fruit for me, as well.
So, I compiled a list of some of the best peach dessert recipes out there. I even included the best peach crumble recipe, which has been in my family for generations. Give the list a read to discover some summertime peach dessert recipes you can try! And of course, check out my recipe at the bottom of the page for more.
BELOW ARE SOME OF MY FAVORITE SUMMER DESSERT RECIPES.
(MY RECIPE IS AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE)
Peach Coffee Cake
From: Saving You Dinero~ Click here for the recipe ~ For a new twist on an old classic recipe, try this peach coffee cake. Not only is it the perfect combination of crumbly and sweet, but it adds in that extra delicious juicy flavor only peaches can provide. And of course, pair it with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream, and you’ve got yourself one tasty treat for the family to enjoy. This in particular is one of my favorite desserts to make for guests, because it’s so simple to make!
From: Aileen Cooks~ Click here for the recipe ~ For something a little bit more traditional—and a classic fan-favorite for the summertime—a peach cobbler is the perfect way to go. Once I get my hands on juicy ripe peaches of the season, I can’t wait to have this bubbling peach cobbler baking in the oven. Vanilla bean ice cream comes in handy with this dish, too… or, if you’re like my husband, maybe you enjoy chocolate ice cream on the side. Whichever makes your tastebuds tingle!
Pan-Fried Peaches with Cinnamon & Honey
From: The Rising Spoon~ Click here for the recipe ~ Then again, peaches are already delicious by themselves, so you don’t always have to turn them into an entirely new dessert. Instead, try adding a few extra ingredients to really bring out the natural flavors of peaches by themselves. This pan-fried peaches recipe uses peaches, coconut milk and raw honey for a mouthwatering summer dessert recipe that’s not only gluten and dairy-free, but also super easy to make!
From: Lavender & Macarons~ Click here for the recipe ~ What is pavlova, you ask? Don’t worry, I was a little confused, too. Pavlova is a meringue-based dessert with a crisp crust and soft, fluffy inside. In other words, one of the tastiest things you will ever eat. Add in peaches and you might be in dessert heaven. Use some egg white leftovers to whip up the pavlova for a crunchy crust and soft center, then slather the top with cream and a few slices of peaches. Your entire family will absolutely love this summer delicacy!
Peaches & Cream Dessert Bars
From: Family, Food and Travel~ Click here for the recipe ~ Finally, one classic recipe that goes together like peanut butter and jelly: peaches and cream. These peaches and cream dessert bars use peach pie filling, so not only can you make them during the summertime, but all year round—even when peaches aren’t in season! Make them as a treat for your family, or bring them along to a potluck or holiday party as we come to the end of the season. Try this recipe now, or save it for later on in the year when things are a bit cooler. I already know I’m going to do both!
When I think of summertime, big, juicy peaches are one of the first things to come to mind. Everyone in my family loves a good peach, but they love them even more when I throw them into a tasty dessert for everyone to enjoy!
Now that you’ve seen some recipes I love, try out one I created down below and let me know your thoughts.
Peach Crumble Recipe
Top questions I get asked about this recipe:
Can I use canned peaches for the recipe?
Yes, you definitely can! As long as you have six total cups of peaches, both canned and fresh peaches work perfectly.
How many people can the recipe serve?
This recipe is made in an 8-inch square dish, so it can serve approximately four people. Therefore, it’s absolutely perfect for my husband and kids. However, if you want to host a few more people, you might try sizing up the recipe proportionately.
How should I store the peach crumble?
If you’re eating the crumble soon, then short-term storage is best in a refrigerator, covered in foil or plastic wrap to keep excess air out.
Peach Crumble Recipe
For the Filling
2 pounds peaches or nectarines, cut into 1/2-inch wedges (6 cups)

For the Topping
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
1/4 cup light-brown sugar
