My husband loves my peach cobbler. I make it whenever he wants one and it usually lasts for a few days because I make a huge pan. He can eat it everyday until it’s gone, but I have to take a break.
Instead of having to make a huge pan the next time he 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 – Recipe Variations
If you want to try something a little different with this base recipe, you can substitute the peaches with quite a few types of fruit.
Canned apples, strawberry pie filling, and even mixed berries work well.
Some variations will have to be made. You can omit the cinnamon if you feel it doesn’t pair well with the fruit that you choose.
Why Peach Cobbler In A Mug?
I bet you never even thought about having peach cobbler in a mug, let alone cooking peach cobbler in a microwave.
Besides the fact that my husband asks for me to cook peach cobbler so often, another reason I like making peach cobbler in the microwave if for convenience and speed.
It’s convenient because it’s not a big to-do like when I cook my southern peach cobbler.
I just use a couple of small dishes, pop everything in the microwave, and I don’t have much cleanup. It’s definitely convenient.
The reason I make peach cobbler in the microwave for speed is self-explanatory. It beats having to wait and constantly check the oven for my peach cobbler to finish cooking.
It cooks in a few minutes and doesn’t take that much longer for it to be cool enough to start eating.
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!
