No-Bake Peach Cobbler Cake is a gluten-free dessert with a delicious almond crust. Rich, creamy and beautiful, it will be your go-to, quintessential summer dessert.
Inspiration for No-Bake Peach Cobbler Cake
Beautiful, aromatic, scrumptious peaches were waiting for me at the front door.
They came in a pretty box with a lovely hand written card adorned with a watercolor of peaches.
You might have thought it was my birthday, but it was The Fruit Company just spreading some Oregon peach love my way.
The large peaches arrived fairly firm, and the card instructed me to leave them out at room temperature for a couple of days to ripen.
Sure enough within 3 days they were perfectly juicy and sweet.
So what's a girl to do with a box of gorgeous peaches?
Make a gluten-free No-Bake Peach Cobbler Cake, of course. I love fresh peach summer desserts, and this super tasty one is a showstopper!
This No-Bake Peach Cobbler Cake is similar to cheesecake, but too soft to call it that. It's rich, creamy and deliciously flavored inside and out with the Oregon peaches.
The deep golden flesh of the peaches is so beautiful - I just had to show it off.
I would have made a second recipe with them if I hadn't eaten every last one first.
How Can You Tell if a Peach is Ripe
- Generally the yellow color in the skin should be a deep golden yellow without green areas.
- If you very gently squeeze a peach, there should be a little bit of a give.
- When a peach is ready to eat, it should feel heavy for its size.
- The more ripe a peach becomes, the rounder the shape.

The Fruit Company sent me Oregon peaches for sampling and recipe testing. This is not a sponsored post -- as always all opinions are my own and I only write about things I love.
No-Bake Peach Cobbler Cake
For the crust
- 2½ cups almond meal
- ½ cup sliced almonds, toasted
- ½ cup unsalted butter, melted
- ¾ teaspoon salt
For the filling
- 28 ounces cream cheese, softened
- 1 cup plus 1½ tablespoons sweetened condensed milk
- 1¾ teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 1 cup peaches, peeled, diced (about ¼ inch pieces)
For the topping
- about 2 cups peaches, super thinly sliced (from about 3 large peaches- this might vary)
- 1 cup peaches, peeled, finely chopped
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
For the crust
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the almond flour, sliced almonds, melted butter and salt. Stir until everything is evenly combined and all of the dry ingredients are held together by the butter. Add this mixture to an approximately 10 X 2 ½-inch springform pan. Using your hands, gently press the mixture to evenly coat the bottom of the pan. Set aside.
For the filling
- Add the softened cream cheese, sweetened condensed milk and vanilla to a large mixing bowl. (Be sure the cream cheese is very soft -- otherwise it will be lumpy, which is the opposite of what we're going for.) Use an electric mixer or hand whisk to blend until smooth, about 30 seconds or so.
- Fold in the diced peaches very gently, trying to keep them whole.
- Pour the mixture into the pan with the crust and place the pan on a baking sheet. Cover the pan with plastic wrap (not touching the filling), and place in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours and ideally overnight.
For the topping
- Take the cake out of the refrigerator, remove the plastic wrap and arrange the peach slices on the top surface. (You can arrange them any way you'd like to -- I start along the edges, overlapping the slices and keep going until I've reached the center. The thinner the slices, the easier this will be.)
- Place the cake in the freezer for about 1 hour. (This will make it much easier to slice, as it's a soft filling.)
- While the cake is in the freezer, add the finely chopped peaches, brown sugar and cinnamon to a small sauté pan and use a fork to mash the mixture, until it's almost a purée. Turn the heat to low-medium and cook until the sugar has dissolved, about 4 minutes. Cool to room temperature.
- Remove the cake from the freezer, drizzle the sauce to coat the peach slices.
- Use a butter knife to go along the edges of the cake, inside the pan. Then loosen the spring and place the cake on a serving platter.
- Slice and serve. (Show your guests how pretty it is first!)

OMG - this looks so good! I hope peaches are still in the markets when I return from the West Coast!
P.S. - it was hard to be in LA for only one day and not be able to see/meet you!!
Hope you find a few peaches, David. Sorry to have missed you in LA. Next time. 🙂

That sounds great and peaches are so good right now!
Thank, Brian! Yes, I can't get enough of them. 🙂
I love no bake recipes. In particular I love no bake cheesecake recipes. You got me there when you said this cake was similar to a cheesecake, even though it was too soft to call it that. I love it! The thought of the flavour from those delicious peaches has my mouth watering. Yum! Pinned!
Thanks so much, Neil. Thanks for pinning, too. Hope you try it and enjoy! 🙂
This sounds like the perfect summer recipe, yum!!

We love no-bake desserts! Your peach cake with almond crust is a must-make this summer 🙂
Thank you! Hope you try it. 🙂
I love a good fresh peach. I also love that this pie is not bake because it's been hot this year and I hate to turn on my oven! Delicious!
Lately I've been really avoiding my oven too. And devouring all of the pretty summer fruit. Thanks for your comment. 🙂
