One of the biggest thing we can’t wait for each time the weather gets warmer is the opportunity to start baking with fresh peaches! There are plenty of delicious ways to enjoy peaches in the summer, including simply eating them right as they grow, but baking with them is a chance to really incorporate a summery flavour into our favourite treats and one of our favourite family hobbies. Sure, some of these recipes can be done with canned peaches all year round, but there’s just something that can’t be beat about making baked treats using the first batch of fresh peaches you pick up for the season.
Check out these 15 mouthwatering baked peach recipes that will have your entire house smelling fragrant and feeling satisfied!
1. Peach slab pie
If you ask use, just about any fruit based pie wrapped in a fluffy, golden crust is a dream come true. Being the peach-lovers we are, however, you can imagine how pleased we were when we found the perfect yummy recipe for a nice, big peach slab pie! Lady Behind the Curtain shows you how to make a pie with the classic peach pie taste, but larger quantities for your big, hungry family.
2. Peach cobbler
Do you love the peach filling or any pie, but you’re actually more smitten with the idea of a yummy crumbled crust topping than a classic pie crust? Then this peach cobbler recipe from Juggling Act Mama might be a better option for you! The idea of pairing a big helping of peach cobbler with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream like you see in the picture has us practically drooling as we write this.
3. Peaches and cream Napoleon
Peach and dessert crust dishes are always a scrumptious option, but what if you actually prefer baking that incorporates cream in some way, to really get that classic “peaches n’ cream” flavour, without actually dousing your whole bowl in real heavy cream? Cooking With Curls shows you how to get the taste you want without quite so much heavy dairy with their peaches and cream Napoleon recipe.

Check out this delicious peaches and cream tart from Lady Behind the Curtain that’s big enough to serve your whole family. We love the way they’ve topped the tart with mouthwatering glazed raspberries!
5. Peach upside down cake
Perhaps you’re browsing this list hoping to find a baked peach recipe that’s more cake based because pies and tarts aren’t really your thing? Then this fluffy peach upside down cake from Food Done Light might be a better option for you! You might serve it just as a peach flavoured sponge cake or top it with actual peach slices for extra flavour, just like in the picture.
6. Peach bundt cake
Do you love the idea of a peach flavoured sponge cake but you’d prefer one that actually has bites of peach inside the cake rather than just on top? Then we have a feeling you’ll enjoy this glazed bundt cake recipe from What’s Cooking Love perhaps the most on this list! They’ve topped it with a light icing drizzle, but you might skip that all together or ice the entire thing if you prefer.

9. Peach pie biscuit bombs

There’s just something about biting into the buns to find the amazing taste of peaches bursting from the inside that feels like a surprise, even when you know exactly what you’re eating because you’re the one that made them!
10. Peach mango coconut oil banana bread
One of the many reasons we love peaches is the fact that they go so well with other fruit flavours, among other tastes. For example, we’ve always loved the way peaches and mangoes complement each other, particularly when it comes to baked things like dessert breads. That’s why we fell in love with this peach mango coconut oil bread from Averie Cooks the very first time we ever tried it! We’d like to tell you how many times we’ve made it since then, but we’re not sure we can count that high, if we’re being honest.
11. Peaches and cream cheese bars
We’ve already shown you a few peaches and cream recipes, but here’s perhaps the creamiest option of the bunch so far! Lady Behind the Curtain takes a unique twist on the “cream” part of that idea and makes these wondrously flavourful dessert bars with cream cheese, ensuring that they’re scrumptious and sweet without being too sweet. We love a baked good that nails the flavour we love most without tasting overwhelming!
12. Brown sugar based peaches
We’ve talked a lot about baking that involves peaches, but what about recipes that actually bake the peaches themselves? Yes, that’s really a thing, and it’s a great thing! Check out how The Kitchen is My Playground made these scrumptious baked peaches topped with butter and brown sugar for a snack that’s quite gourmet even in its simplicity.
13. Skinny peaches and cream Greek yogurt cheesecake
Are you a massive fan of peach flavoured baked goods and fruit topped cheesecakes, but you’ve been trying to watch your calorie intake?

Call Me PMC suggests making yourself this alternative cheesecake recipe that uses Greek yogurt to keep things creamy and delicious without taking the most unhealthy route to the taste you want. Even with the ingredient changes they make, they keep peaches the central focus, and that’s what’s really important here, right?
14. Peach crumb cake muffins
Crumb cakes are always a delicious dessert to make, but because they get so crumbly, cutting and serving them can be a messy process. That’s why we love finding recipes that come in more individualized portions, making it easy for each person in the family to just grab one and eat it without hassle! These peach crumb cake muffins by Lady Behind the Curtain are a perfect example of what we mean.
15. Peach cobbler bars
Do you make fruit cobblers a lot and, even though they’re your favourite thing, you’re still always open to the idea of putting a new twist on the classics so that your family stays interested in the desserts you make them? Then try making these peach cobbler bars instead! They’re a little little less gooey and a little more friendly for on-the-go dessert eaters than the classic recipe.
