3-Minute Microwave Peach Cobbler

Instead of having to make a huge pan of peach cobbler the next time my husband wants one, I’ve come up with a recipe for a 3-minute microwave peach cobbler that can be made in single servings (and one that he can easily make himself).

It literally takes just a few minutes from start to finish. Whenever I want one I can also make this microwave peach cobbler in a mug.

Microwave Peach Cobbler In A Mug

In this peach cobbler microwave recipe I used frozen peaches, but you can definitely substitute it with canned or fresh peaches.

If you’re going to use fresh peaches it may take a little longer to cook because the peaches will be slightly harder.

You can heat the fresh peaches up on the stove with some cinnamon and brown sugar until they’re soft enough to eat. Then you can add them to your ramekin or mug before you add the batter.

Microwave Peach Cobbler vs Oven-Baked Peach Cobbler

I really like both of my peach cobbler recipes because they both taste really good.

The microwave peach cobbler surely has its strong points when I’m in a hurry to get a dessert in my belly and I don’t want to share (yes, you don’t have to share if you don’t want to).

The taste isn’t compromised when it’s cooked in the microwave.

However, I do prefer my baked peach cobbler recipe because it is just a little more moist than the peach cobbler cooked in a mug.

I’m not saying that the microwave peach cobbler is dry, but I can tell the difference, even if it’s just a slight difference.

Either way, you can top both versions with a large scoop of vanilla ice cream and enjoy a tasty homemade peach cobbler! Enjoy!

A 3-Minute microwave peach cobbler dessert can be made in a snap! Just a few ingredients and you'll have a peach cobbler made for two. You can also have a single serve peach cobbler in a mug. - The Kreative Life

  1. I will be making this tonight! I am disabled and have little tolerance for many tasks. 3 Minutes fits the bill for me, thanks so much. Thank you to you and your husband for his service and your sacrifice. God bless you all.

    1. Hi, Cathie! I’ve never made it with fresh peaches, only canned or frozen. Fresh peaches may work, but you may have to cook them a little longer to get them soft enough.

      1. I’ve just made it with fresh peaches. I did not microwave the first bit. Mixed peaches with sugar and cinnamon then out in 2 ramekins already with the melted butter. Total microwave time 4 minutes in one minute intervals.

    2. Kathy yes you can make with fresh chin drippin’ peaches. Plus I subbed out brown and granulated sugars with Truvia, used real vanilla and Fairlife fat free. These small changes made for a dessert that fit my requirenrnts. After the peach cobbler was done I cut it half as a shared dessert with my husvand. I added forty seconds to the cooking in step two and thirty seconds to step ten. I did not peel the peaches but did wash them well.

  2. This is awesome! You could do this with any fruit, really. Yummy! I want to find a recipe that’s similar to this for a single serve pineapple upside down cake.

  3. This sounds great. A quick and YUMMY after school snack, I have 3 granddaughters, they would love it! THANKS!!

  4. Thanks for the l person or l serving recipe. I love peach cobbler and would like to have it periodically. If I make an entire portion I would eat it and of course that would not be good for me. Perhaps good to me though. 🙂 I will be trying it real soon.

  5. I love this! I am watching my weight and being a widow baking for just me is not an option. All the cakes etc are huge and I give away a lot so I don’t eat it myself! I made this with caned peaches and fresh red raspberries! Proud to say I only ate half then the other half the next day! It was not easy to leave the other half!!! So Good! I will try to do apples next time. I will pre cook them in the microwave to soften them a bit. Thank you!

  6. Thank you so much for the recipe! I tried it out with blueberries and it turned out amazing! I move a lot for my job and can’t always have a big kitchen so knowing I can make this in a microwave is great for when I am craving something sweet.

  7. Just saw this post from ask.com…..microwave cobbler. Do you know if a large family sized cobbler could be made in the microwave too. Would really like to share my wonderful peach filling with co-workers, but only have a microwave in the breakroom. Any suggestions would be helpful.

    1. Hi, Annette! I’ve never tried this recipe with larger measurements in the microwave. I would suggest to adjust the measurements and the size of the microwavable dish you use.

  8. totally trying this right now! I have all of the ingredients and I was looking for something sweet to eat. Thanks!

  9. Thanks! I just made this its yummy! I doubled the recipe to use 4 really ripe really juicy peaches before they went bad. I used 3 extra tablespoons of flour in mine since the peaches were really juicy to help sop up some of the juice and half a cup of rolled oats for some added texture. And I cooked it for 2 minutes then another minute then added the brownsugar with some oats and a teaspoon of flour and 1 teaspoon butter mixed well and evenly distributed over top and cooked for one more minute. It is super!

  10. Just tried this with 1 fresh Peasy… Not peeled…. Cinnamon was a bit strong…. Loved it… Will use other fruits as available…. Thanks

  11. This looks to be a wonderful recipe and I do line peach pie, so this quick microwave cobbler should be a snap. Also it looks like it should be adaptible to other soft fruit with some minor tweaking and use of appropriate seasoning to the fruit, plus I want to try it with fresh guavas, which I love. That should prove to be scrumptious.

    Any comments about subbing otherkinds of fruit into thei recipe?

    1. Hi, Paul! I’m glad you like the recipe! You can sub this recipe with other fruit. I can imagine that any fruit that tastes good in a pie will work. If you decide to use guava, you may want to remove the cinnamon from the recipe. I’m not sure if those two are a good combination.

  12. Made this for my uncle and snuck in his protein powder. It came out pretty tasty. Good recipe!

    1. I’m glad that you liked it, Carrie!

  13. Had planned to make a large cobbler but ran out of time, as usual. I found this recipe when I was trying to find something quick to do with fresh peaches for dessert. I wanted to use a dish larger than a ramekin so I doubled the recipe (sort of). I need to be gluten free so I had to make a minor adjustment (I used a gluten free biscuit/pancake mix that I buy at the supermarket instead of regular flour – same measurements though), I did not double the butter and only increased the milk a bit. I did double the granulated sugar but used half vanilla sugar. Since the peaches were so sweet I only increased the brown sugar a bit. The time in the microwave had to increase as well. It came out great and I even forgot to sprinkle some brown sugar on top! It would have been too sweet with it anyway since I had doubled the sugar in the topping mixture itself. My husband thinks that since it was so quick and easy we could have it almost any night of the week. Thanks for helping to solve my dessert problem.

  14. This is exactly what I was looking for. Thank you SO much for this recipe! ☺️Time saver and omg…so good

    1. Yes, especially when you have a constant sweet tooth. Lol

  15. I love quick and easy desserts. This is such a brilliant idea. It has been a while since I made some peach cobbler. Thank you for sharing this.

  16. I don’t think I did this right,because after I cooked it and it tasted like a gory glob.My husband said that it was ok.i did put both dishes in the microwave at once and that may have been the mistake.His. May have cooed the top betterThanks for sharing I will try again before I throw the recipe.

    1. Hi, Colleen! I’m sorry this recipe didn’t work for you the first time around. I only microwave one dish at a time, so I’m not too sure how microwaving two at the same time will effect the recipe. Please let me know if doing one at a time works for you.

  17. I completely messed up this recipe and it still came out great. I used 1c fresh peach, 2.5T coconut sugar, combined steps 1&2, subbed erythritol for topping. I for6milk after I nuked 30sec. I stirred in 1T, nuked 1min more. Delicious and very forgiving, easy recipe. I’m so glad I found this!

  18. I loved it!! Definitely hit the right spot on a late night and having a sweet tooth! Highly recommend

  19. I love that orange/red baking dish. Can you tell me where you go it?

  20. This is a great way to salvage a fresh peach that’s too mealy to eat raw! I subbed used 1T each flour and oatmeal, and it was great!

  21. Super yummy! I used brown sugar stevia, fresh peaches and almond milk. Super yummy and somewhat healthy-ish! Will definitely make again.

  22. If all you have is eggnog and no milk, go for it!!! Delicious, thank you!

  23. Hi! I know this is a super old recipe, don’t even know if you are still active on this website, but i just wanted to say that i LOVE this recipe! I make it almost every morning for breakfast, it is so sweet and filling 🙂 thanks so much!

  24. Hi Kendra,
    Thanks for the yummy recipe. I used fresh peaches because that’s what I had in the house. Then I followed your directions. Next time I want more crust. How much longer do you think I should microwave, if I double the flour mixture?

  25. Ok. I made this peach cobbler in the mug last night, but I use alternative (or alternate) ingredients, I use half and half instead of regular milk, I use gluten free baking flour instead of the regular flour, coconut sugar instead of light brown sugar and granulated erythritol (Swerve) instead of regular granulated sugar, the dough turned out ok but other than that it was good.

  26. I used fresh peaches and this worked perfectly. The topping is very “cake like” so I turned mine out of the ramekin into a bowl and then poured some milk over it. I also added less sugar to the peaches since they are naturally sweet enough for my taste. I am allergic to raw tree fruit so this is a handy method to enjoy cooked fruit like apples as well.

    1. Hi, Selena! I’m so glad that you liked it!

  27. Thank you for this recipe. I appreciate it so much. This would be a great recipe for when an unexpected guest drops by. I used a giant fresh peach and followed all of your directions. My microwave is a little wonky so I had to use more time to bake the topping. Recipes like this make me so happy!

    1. Hi, Barbara! I’m glad that you like it!

  28. Oh my goodness! This is the best & with very little fuss & time. Eating now. YUM!

  29. AMAZING RECIPE! I did 1.5x for the topping because i like a bit more of the cake porthole but super delicious and quick!

  30. This recipe is soo good! I make it with fresh palisade peaches (if you know, you know ) and it’s a fantastic substitute for a full casserole of peach cobbler. I’m definitely saving this!

    1. I’m so glad that you like it! I’ve never had palisade peaches, but now I have to find some. Thank you for sharing!
