What Is the Best Way to Reheat Cobbler?

There are three optimal ways to reheat your cobbler; oven, microwave, or an air fryer. An oven is the best and most common way to reheat your cobbler because it’s like baking it again with consistent and even heating. Reheating with an air fryer is superior to a microwave due to circulating air.

The microwave isn’t a bad way to reheat your cobbler either; it won’t produce as good an outcome as an oven or air fryer. However, it’s the quickest and effortless way to do it, so that’s an advantage for some instances.

By the way, these reheating methods work on other cobblers than peach. There are many kinds of cobblers, such as;

  • Peach cobbler
  • Apple cobbler
  • Blueberry cobbler
  • Strawberry cobbler
  • Pumpkin cobbler
  • Sweet potato cobbler
  • Pecan cobbler
  • Chocolate cobbler
  • Butterscotch cobbler
  • Cherry cobbler

Those are just the most popular cobblers out there, but there are dozens, if not hundreds, more! Now, let’s look at how you can reheat your cobbler.

How to Reheat Peach Cobbler?

You can reheat your peach cobbler with an oven, microwave, and air fryer. Reheat your peach cobbler in an oven at 250°F for 10 to 20 minutes. Reheat with an air fryer for 2 to 3 minutes. With a microwave, reheat for 45-60 seconds.

Now, let’s look at each reheating method individually so you can implement the step-by-step instructions into action!

1. Oven

Reheating your peach cobbler in an oven is the most common way. It also produces a great, evenly heated outcome, just like you at your first bake. Here’s how to reheat peach cobbler in an oven;

  1. Heat the oven: Preheat the oven to 250°F.
  2. Add the cobbler to an oven-safe container: While the oven is heating, add a desired amount of cobbler to an oven-safe container for reheating.
  3. Place the container in the oven: When the oven reaches 250°F, place the container in the middle rack of the oven for reheating.
  4. Set the time: Reheat it for 10 to 20 minutes, depending on the peach cobbler amount. Small amounts may get with 10 minutes, whereas a whole pie needs 20 minutes or more.
  5. Let the cobbler rest: When a cobbler is reheated, take it out of the oven and let it rest for 10 minutes to be cool enough to eat and maintain a great texture.
  6. Enjoy: Enjoy your peach cobbler as it is or add ice cream on top to crown the dessert.

If you want a set-and-forget approach to the reheating, you can use a Digital Food Thermometer, poke it inside the cobbler, set the alarm for 200°F, and be notified when your peach cobbler is properly reheated.

2. Air fryer

Air fryers have risen in popularity like a rocket ship in recent years, and it’s no wonder. Air fryers are like miniature convection ovens, producing very tasty outcomes. To reheat your cobbler in an air fryer, follow these instructions;

  1. Prepare the cobbler: Remove the cobbler from any wrapping and place it in an air fryer-safe container. This can be a tiny pan, air fryer-safe parchment, or an air fryer container.
  2. Place desired to serve on a container: Add the desired amount of peach cobbler within the container. Then, place it inside the air fryer.
  3. Heat the cobbler: Reheat the cobbler for 2 to 3 minutes for individual servings. For larger servings, reheat for 4 to 8 minutes.
  4. Enjoy: Enjoy your peach cobbler as it is or add ice cream on top to crown the dessert.

Air fryers produce great crunchy textures, so this is the best way if you’re a fan of that. Although, if you have an air fryer at home, I’m sure you already know this.

3. Microwave

The steps to heat peach cobbler in a microwave are similar to air fryers, but it’s even easier and faster. Let’s take a look.

  1. Prepare the cobbler: Remove the cobbler from any wrappings.
  2. Place desired to serve on the plate: Place peach cobbler on a plate or other desired microwave-safe container.
  3. Heat the cobbler: Heat your cobbler in 30-second cycles. If it’s not warm enough after 30 seconds, give it another 30 seconds. For individual servings, 45 seconds are often optimal, yet bigger servings may need 1.5minutes or more.
  4. Enjoy: Enjoy your peach cobbler as it is or add ice cream on top to crown the dessert.

Microwaving peach cobbler won’t produce as good texture as an oven or air fryer, and thus, the taste may be lesser. However, sometimes when you’re feeling lazy or want to reheat it quickly, microwaving is the best way.

My favorite microwave is the Toshiba EM925A5A-BS because it’s stunning, has many features, and has lasted a long time.

Is Peach Cobbler Better Hot or Cold?

All cobblers need to be initially cooked, but that doesen’t necessarily mean it’s best to be eating hot. The temperature has a surprisingly big say on food’s texture and taste, so you should know whether peach cobbler is best hot or cold.

Peach cobbler is best to be eaten warm or room temperature, not hot straight from the oven or cold. After taking peach cobbler from the oven, it should cool for 20 to 30 minutes to thicken and firm. However, you shouldn’t wait too long so it’s cold because it won’t be as good anymore.

As a rule of thumb, you should be able to put a scoop of ice cream on top of the cobbler so that it doesen’t rapidly melt, but it’s still warm. This way, the cobbler has thickened and firmed, so the texture is optimal, and the ice cream won’t turn it into mush, yet it’s still pleasantly warm to be eaten.

Of course, this is just a best practice, recommendation, and general preference. If you like cold peach cobbler better than hot or warm, you should eat it like that! There’s no harm in it.

Do You Refrigerate Peach Cobbler After Baking?

Commonly, there are some leftovers when you have made and eaten peach cobbler. However, not all baked goods need to be refrigerated, such sugar buns, and you name it. So, should you refrigerate peach cobbler after baking or not?

You should always refrigerate your leftover peach cobbler to keep it fresh as long as possible. If you were to leave it to room temperature, its texture would decrease in quality, and bacteria would appear, especially if it contains dairy and egg products.

According to Healthline, refrigerated eggs have double the shelf life, so refrigerating will be smart if you added eggs to your peach cobbler. Dairy shouldn’t be left unrefrigerated either. Also, bacteria grow well at room temperature, so you shouldn’t keep a cobbler unrefrigerated for more than two hours.

Shelf life and bacteria aside, refrigerating will also keep the overall freshness, texture, and flavor better for longer, so that’s that. Remember to wrap your cobbler in foil, such as Whole Foods Market Aluminum Foil, further to extend the lifespan and freshness of your cobbler.

Without the foil, the cobbler will be more in contact with air, making it spoil faster, and it can pick up unpleasant odors, such as onion to it.

Oh, and if you don’t like cold peach cobbler straight from the refrigerator, refer to the reheating instructions above!

How Long Is Cobbler Good for In the Fridge?

As we learned, cobbler, whether that’s peach or other kinds, should be refrigerated after baking. Certain foods and ingredients may last two days in the fridge, whereas others can last more than weeks. How long is cobbler good for in the fridge?

Generally, peach cobbler lasts fresh for 3 to 4 days in the fridge after baking it. The shelf life can be longer if you don’t use dairy or egg products, and ensure it’s stored in a well-sealed container.

The best way to keep your cobbler fresh as long as possible and without any fridge odors is to use a Plastic Food Container. This way, any air that accelerates spoilage or makes the cobbler absorb odors can’t get to it.

In most cases, the cobbler is still fresh after two days of refrigerating. After that, it quickly starts to lose its freshness starting from the toppings, whether that’s peaches or something else. You should strive to finish the cobbler in two days of baking to get the most taste from it.

Can You Freeze Leftover Peach Cobbler?

What if you have a lot of excess peach cobbler that you know you can’t finish in a time before it starts spoiling. No one wants to waste a good cobbler, so can you freeze your leftover cobbler, or is it no good?

You can freeze leftover peach cobbler maximum of up to 4 months, whereas unbaked peach cobbler for up to 8 months. To safely freeze your cobbler, tightly wrap it in plastic wrap and foil to preserve it as well as possible.

Freezing is the last resort for preserving your peach cobbler, and it’s a great way to do so. Traditionally, a baked peach cobbler lasts up to four days in the fridge, but it can stay up to 4 months in the freezer. You should know that a baked cobbler won’t be as good after freezing and defrosting because its texture will be different due to water molecules freezing within its’ content.

If you were to freeze beach cobbler, it’s best to do unbaked because it hasn’t been baked yet, making it much better after defrosting and baking.

Here You’ll Find My Favorite Kitchen Equipment.

Thanks for reading this article! I hope that it brought you real value that you can benefit from in your personal life! Here is my top kitchen equipment that I seriously couldn’t live without, and I think they could ease your life as well as they do mine.

  • Knife set: As a chef, I can’t stand dull, poor-quality knives without any design. My absolute favorite kitchen knife set is the Gangshan 3-Piece Knife Set. It comes with a handcrafted 8″ chef’s knife and a 3.5″ paring knife. What I love even more than these flawless knives is the walnut knife block which is incredible and unique.
  • Skillet: In addition to knives and my unwillingness to bargain with its quality is the cookware. My favorite skillet is Le Creuset Enameled Cast Iron Skillet. This particular skillet is 9″ in size, it is heavy, it gets very hot, which is what is required to get a good sear, and it is just beautiful, as are all Le Creuset products. Le Creuset doesn’t need an introduction as a brand, as it is one of the world’s rated brands.
  • Food processor: I remember when I hadn’t a food processor at home. It wasn’t easy! But now, when I use my Ninja BN601 Food Processor, I can make anything super fast, which saves me many hours per week. This food processor has 1000 watts of power and four options, including chopping, slicing, dough, and purees. I also like the middle-sized 9cup (2.1l) bowl as it is big enough yet not too big to look unfitting in my kitchen.
  • Tweezers: Dalstrong Professional Cooking Tweezers are like tongs but much more elegant, thin, and easy to use. They are great for virtually anything, but flipping, turning, and grabbing with them is easy and makes cooking much more fun! These Dalstrgon tongs are titanium coated and very durable. Also, I like the black color instead of the everyday steel.
