Recipe: Old Fashioned Peach Buckle

September 01, 2021 · by Brittany Douglas

Do you need to finish off those delicious summer peaches? Here's a simple recipe that will be a hit for the whole family!


  • 3 thinly sliced peaches
  • 1 cup of all purpose flour
  • 1 cup of granulated sugar
  • 1 stick of butter (melted)
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract
  • 2 tsps of baking powder
  • 4 tablespoons of cane sugar

Place your thinly sliced peaches into a large bowl, sprinkle with 2 tablespoons of cane sugar, and give it a mix to distribute the sugar.

In another mixing bowl, combine 1 cup of flour, 1 cup of sugar, 2 teaspoons of baking powder, and mix. Then, add in your melted stick of butter, 1 cup of milk, and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract. Again, mix until you’ve got a smooth, thin batter.

Next, pour your batter into a buttered pie dish, toss in your peaches, and sprinkle your remaining 2 teaspoons of cane sugar overtop.

Bake your buckle at 350 degrees for about 55 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown. Slice and enjoy! (It is delicious served warm and paired with vanilla ice cream!)

No worries if your dessert “buckles” a bit once it has been pulled from the oven—that’s what it's supposed to do--hence the name! :)
