The Utah peaches are still going strong. Thank goodness. Because I feel like I haven’t taken proper advantage of them this year, which is a shame, because if you are a regular reader, you’ll already know that I think that Utah has pretty much the best peaches. Ever.

I’ve enjoyed my fair share this year straight from my hand, but as far as actually cooking or baking with them, I’ve pretty much failed. But just a couple of days ago, after looking at some gorgeous peaches sitting on my counter, I had a craving for peach cobbler. And this peach cobbler recipe is the first one that popped into my head.

Since I am not one to ignore my cravings, I checked the pantry to make sure I had all the ingredients I needed on hand, and decided to make this peach cobbler recipe, even though I was knee deep in other recipes that I was trying to finish up. It was a crazy busy day in the kitchen, but totally worth it since this was my reward.

I originally posted this recipe over at the Cafe Zupas website a few years ago. But after making it again, and falling in love with it all over again, I just knew that I had to share it here with all of you.

Peach Cobbler recipe filled with coconut flavors

This recipe takes a traditional peach cobbler recipe and gives it a coconut twist. Almond extract is my secret ingredient for fruit cobblers, and combining the peach with the almond and then the coconut – it is magic.

You can eat this cold or room temperature, but my favorite is to eat it when it’s warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. When the ice cream melts into the cobbler, it gives it a whole new layer of flavor with the creamy vanilla.

This is definitely a peach cobbler recipe that you want to try before summer is over!

This Coconut Peach Cobbler recipe takes the sweet peaches of the season and turns them into a delicious cobbler with a twist.

  • ¾ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
