After trying several versions, I finally perfected the best-canned peach crisp recipe, using brown sugar, more oats, less flour, added nuts, etc. To my surprise, the simpler I kept it, the better. So I opted for simple ingredients using granulated sugar, no nuts, and a touch of lemon juice.

This canned peach crisp is your go-to recipe for something quick and delightful. This easy dessert is now one of my favorite peach recipes, along with my canned peach pie and cast iron peach cake.

The peaches make this a wonderful summer dessert, but you can serve this year-round because this recipe uses canned peaches.

Using canned peaches simplifies the process and ensures you can enjoy this treat year-round. The combination of a crunchy, buttery topping with the sweet, syrupy peaches underneath makes for a dessert that’s hard to resist.

Ingredients Notes and Shopping List

Canned Peaches: 45 ounces, drained. The star of the show, canned peaches, makes this recipe accessible anytime.

All-Purpose flour: I like to use King Arthur organic flour when I bake. 

Rolled Oats: Adds texture and heartiness to the crisp topping.

White Sugar: The only sugar I use to sweeten up the topping.

Cold Cubed Butter is the ingredient that gives it all the flavor. Because what’s a crisp without some buttery goodness?

Ground Cinnamon: Adds a subtle spice; you can also use nutmeg, cardamom, or a little of all!

Salt: Use a flakey sea salt for this. It adds balance to the sweetness.

My Tips for Recipe Success

  • Butter Temperature: Make sure your butter is cold to achieve that perfect crumbly texture in the topping.
  • Peach Layering: Be bold and layer those peaches thickly. As they cook, they’ll reduce down.
  • Serving Suggestion: Everyone serves this with vanilla ice cream, but I’ll be honest, fruity ice cream, like strawberry, tastes even better! Be different and add more flavor with these ice cream flavors that all pair well with peaches: Blueberries, blackberries, lemon, raspberries, and, of course, vanilla. Use a different flavor to elevate the dessert.
  • Make-Ahead: Prepare ahead of time and kept in the fridge until ready to bake. Just let it sit at room temperature for 10 minutes before baking, as cold ingredients may affect the baking time and texture.

Recipe Variations

Fresh Peaches: Swap out canned peaches for fresh peaches in season.

Brown Sugar: Substitute white sugar with brown sugar in the topping for a deeper, caramel-like sweetness.

Lemon Zest: Add a teaspoon of lemon zest to the peach layer for a bright, citrusy note.

Different Fruits: This recipe can be adapted to use various canned fruits such as pears, apples, or cherries.

Gluten-Free Option: Use gluten-free flour instead of all-purpose flour to make this dessert accessible to everyone.

Helpful Questions and Answers

What is the difference between peach crisp and peach cobbler? 

Peach crisp and peach cobbler differ mainly in their toppings. A peach crisp features a topping made with oats, flour, butter, and sugar. It becomes crispy and crumbly as it bakes, offering a delightful texture contrast to the soft fruit beneath. On the other hand, peach cobbler is topped with a batter or biscuit dough that bakes into a smooth, cake-like or biscuity layer atop the fruit.

Why is my peach crisp soggy?

Ensure you cook this crisp long enough for the topping to get crispy and golden brown. If it’s still soggy after the recommended baking time, try increasing the oven temperature or baking it for a few minutes longer.

Can I use fresh peaches instead of canned? 

Yes, you can use fresh peaches for this recipe. Just peel and slice them before layering them in the baking dish.
