Whip up a refreshing end to your meal with these awesome peach desserts!
Bright and golden, plump, sweet, and juicy: peaches are undeniably one of summer’s best produce.
If you just stocked up on peaches and unsure what to do with your summer haul, I have you covered.
What I love about these fuzzy fruits is that they taste good no matter how you prepare them.
Whether eaten fresh, roasted, grilled, or baked into a dessert, you can’t go wrong.
And today, I’ll tell you about the many, many ways you can incorporate peaches into your sweet treats.
From tarts and cakes to ice cream and parfaits, this round-up of peach desserts will make your day.
Let’s get the ball rolling with perhaps the most classic peach dessert there is.
This peach cobbler is as delightful as your usual recipe, but it’s a lot easier to make.
You’ll use a boxed cake mix for this recipe, which means you don’t have to measure flour, baking powder, and other ingredients.
With this simple hack, your prep time will be cut in half.
It’s so easy you don’t even need to make a batter!
Just sprinkle the cake mix on top of peaches, dot it with butter and cinnamon, and into the oven, it goes. It couldn’t be any easier than that.
If you’re in the mood for a peachy treat but don’t want to break a sweat, this recipe is calling your name.
Dump cakes are perfect for busy (or lazy) folks because you’ll simply dump all the ingredients in one pan, and the oven takes care of the rest.
This peach dump cake is a quick and easy recipe, but the result will surprise you.
The cake is ultra-soft and moist, and the sweet peach flavor is ridiculously delicious.
Because it’s served warm, you won’t need to wait long before you can have a taste.
Served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, this is peach dessert at its best.
How about a cold and creamy ice cream to beat the summer heat? I won’t say no to this sweet and refreshing peach ice cream!
Peaches in ice cream form: it’s the best way to describe this dessert. It’s simple, but man, it’s good.
This super easy recipe doesn’t require eggs or any kind of cooking. It does need a churner, though, so it’s time to take your old machine out of the cupboard.
Tennessee peach pudding – if you haven’t had one of these bad boys, you’re missing out. Let’s do something about it, shall we?
It’s a rustic cake filled with peach slices bathed in a sweet and buttery syrup spiced with nutmeg.
Served warm and topped with vanilla ice cream, you’ll love the contrast of hot and cold.
5. Peach Crisp
Fresh and juicy peaches are topped with a crispy topping. It’s a simple dessert, but it sure hits the spot.
A crisp is a lot similar to a cobbler. The only difference is that it has a crisp oat topping instead of a crumbly biscuit topping (hence the name).
If you like contrasting textures of soft and crispy, you’ll probably enjoy a crisp more than a cobbler.
These peach parfaits are the perfect way to start the day.
Sweet and tart, crunchy and creamy, and hearty and tasty, the combination of flavors and textures is amazing!
Peaches, dates, Greek yogurt, and granola – that’s what’s up. This morning meal will surely pump you up for the day ahead.
It’s a fantastic make-ahead recipe, which means you can prepare it the night before, refrigerate it, and enjoy it the next morning.
Colorful fruits are tossed with a rich and creamy dressing.
There’s nothing exactly new about a fruit salad. This one, though, is pretty exciting.
Instead of the usual whipped cream dressing, we’re using peach pie filling!
If you think that’s odd, you’ll be surprised at how amazing it works.
The sweetness and tartness of the pie filling enhance the flavors of the fruits really well. Trust me, this one’s a game-changer.
8. Peach Pie
This old-fashioned dessert is 100% delicious. The concept is basic – peaches baked into a crust.
But as simple as it is, it’s as mouth-watering as any complex dessert.
First of all, look at that gorgeous latticework! It seems complicated, but I believe in you – you can do this!
Or, just do it classic-style. It doesn’t matter, it’ll still taste great.
There’s just something about the combination of juicy peaches and a buttery crust.
Add vanilla ice cream into the picture, and you’ll have achieved peach pie perfection.
Here’s an awesome variation of the classic peach pie. Instead of a crust sealing in all the peachy goodness, you’ll do things open-faced this time.
You’ll have a flaky crust underneath peaches cooked in brown sugar, butter, cinnamon, and ginger.
You’ll seal in the juices by folding just the edges of the crust, such that the majority of the filling is still exposed.
Just like most peach desserts, serve this galette warm with a scoop of ice cream on top. It’s simple yet spectacular at the same time.
Have a hankering for a peachy dessert but no time to bake? Bring your boring canned peaches into life! Balsamic vinegar and ice cream are all you’ll need.
Think of it as the elevated version of canned peaches. Just drain the syrup and cook the peaches with a bit of balsamic vinegar. Top it with ice cream, and voila.
11. Peach Rose Tarts
Next up, we have perhaps the most beautiful dessert on this round-up.
If you don’t think you’ll be able to pull off such an intricate-looking treat, think again.
I didn’t think I could make it, either, but it turned out to be pretty simple. It’s just a matter of adhering peach slices to strips of pastry. Anyone can do it.
They’re so pretty, you almost won’t want to eat them. But you definitely should, though – they’re amazing!
12. Peach Tartlets
These peach tartlets are bite-sized wonders!
From the flaky crust to the tender peaches and crunchy toasted almonds to the sweet vanilla glaze, I give them a 12/10.
The flavors and textures in these tartlets are on point.
They’re so good, you’ll think they require pro-baking skills to make, but the recipe is actually simple. Pre-made puff pastry is the key.
If you loved this pineapple upside-down cake, you’ll surely enjoy this upside-down cake as well.
Tender peaches and a sweet, caramelized syrup go on top of a dense and moist cake.
It’s a rustic dessert that tastes amazing on its own or topped with vanilla ice cream.
Any cake recipe with sour cream in it is a sure winner. You’ll love how moist this pound cake is!
It’s baked in a bundt pan, so it’s rustic as can be. It’s loaded with peaches and drizzled with vanilla glaze, making it a sensational summer sweet.
Pair it with coffee or tea for a spectacular breakfast or afternoon treat.
Lasagna for dessert? I won’t say no to that, especially if we’re talking about this peaches ‘n cream lasagna.
Layers of graham crackers, whipped cream, macerated peaches, and almonds, this lasagna is a sweet, creamy, and refreshing treat.
Best of all, it’s an easy recipe that involves zero baking.
16. Peach Cupcakes
These peach cupcakes aren’t only adorable, they’re quite delicious, too.
The cakes are outrageously soft, moist, and loaded with peaches in every bite.
The golden frosting is a knock-out, too! It’s fluffy, creamy, and sweet with a touch of tartness.
Don’t worry about the seemingly complicated piping work. It’s easier than it looks.
Peach cobbler in muffin form? Count me in.
Whether you have them for breakfast, dessert, or an afternoon treat, these muffins are the bomb.
The muffins are soft and crumbly, and there are sweet peaches in every bite.
What knocks it out of the park, though, is the buttery crumble on top. It’s rich, buttery, crumbly, and undeniably delicious.
These European peach cookies are such a treat. Look how pretty!
These round, peach-looking cookies are filled with sweet dulce de leche and walnut filling and coated in peach-colored frosting.
Completing the look are crunchy sugar granules.
These stunning delights are perfect for special occasions but easy enough to make any day.
19. Peach Brownies
It may sound unusual, but adding peaches to your brownie batter is a must-try.
The sweet summer fruit adds fruitiness to the decadent dessert, giving you a well-balanced delight.
Besides the flavor, the peaches also make your brownies even moister than ever.
Best of all, this recipe is eggless and butterless! It’s delicious without the guilt.
These grilled peaches prove that this summer fruit is great even on its own. You won’t need to turn it into a cobbler or a cake. It’s amazing even if you just grill it.
Top grilled peaches with ice cream, and dessert is served. You can also serve it as a side dish to pork chops or a topping to a salad.
21. Peach Squares
If you’re bored with your usual brownies, here’s another square-shaped treat to satisfy your sweet tooth.
These morsels are soft, ooey-gooey, and loaded with peaches and berries. I dare you to stop at one.
You’ll love the combination of gooey cake, tender peaches, and crunchy walnuts! The contrasting textures are such a treat.
Just looking at these tarts will make you fall in love. Puff pastry tarts are topped with peaches and drizzled with honey and vanilla.
They’re crispy, juicy, and just hit the spot. Because you’ll be using store-bought puff pastry, making it is a breeze.
Trifles are such intricate desserts, but because almost all the components are ready-made, they couldn’t be easier to make.
This trifle features layers of store-bought pound cakes, fresh peaches, vanilla pudding, and whipped topping. I’ll give you a moment to take all that in.
Prepared in a large glass container, all the layers are displayed for everyone to see.
Grilled peaches are great, but they’re even greater when topped with a dollop of mascarpone.
You won’t believe the difference this mild cheese makes.
Mascarpone adds a creamy and slightly salty contrast to the sweet and tart peaches.
Its taste isn’t overwhelming, so the flavor of the peaches really shines through.
25. Baked Peaches
Peaches are delicious as they are. So even if you just pop them in the oven, you can expect nothing but delicious, fragrant greatness.
Drizzle them with spiced honey butter and pop them in the oven.
You won’t believe how amazing they’ll be, especially when served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Disclaimer: this peach salad looks nothing like a salad. Instead, it’s a beautiful, billowing specimen made with Cool Whip, pudding, peaches, marshmallows, and pecans.
The texture each component brings creates a wonderful combination. As different as they are, they all work together to create one epic treat.
27. Peach Mousse
Give the usual chocolate mousse a fruity spin. This peach mousse is just as creamy and decadent, but instead of chocolate, you’ll be treated to a refreshing peach flavor.
Can I also just say, that pastel hue makes this mousse so appetizing. The bright, golden topping gives it a nice pop of color, too.
Fresh peaches are cooked in sweet, buttery, cinnamon syrup and topped with vanilla ice cream.
Peaches and cream is a simple dessert, but it’s definitely delightful. It’s impossible to resist!
Looking for a healthier alternative to ice cream? Go for peach popsicles!
They’re just as cool and creamy, but because we’re using yogurt instead of cream, it’s a lot more wholesome.
So go ahead, have that second popsicle. You know you want to.
30. Peach Shortcake
Last on our list is this ridiculously tasty peach shortcake.
Featuring layers of buttery biscuits, cloud-like whipped cream, and sweetened peaches, this dessert is a summer dream!
