This is the first time I’ve ever made dessert in the slow cooker. We had a busy night with a soccer game for one child and practice for another child, so dinner was leftover ham sandwiches. But I did take a few minutes to throw this into the slow cooker.
Warm, cinnamony peach crisp made the quick supper seem special. The best part is, the ingredients are simple pantry staples.
Peach Crisp in the Slow Cooker
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup quick oats
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/4 cup butter softened + extra to butter crock
- 2 large 20 oz cans peaches, drained well
- Butter the inside of the crock or spray with cooking spray.
- Stir together brown sugar, oats, flour and cinnamon.
- Cut the butter into the dry ingredients with a pastry blender or fork until the mixture is crumbly.
- Put the drained peaches in the crock and stir 1/2 the crumbs into the fruit.
- Top with the rest of the crumbs.
- Cook on low 3-4 hours.
- If you want to really crisp it up, pop the crock under the broiler for a minute before serving. We skipped that step and it was still delicious and a little bit crispy around the edges.
Do you use your slow cooker for dessert?
I’m showing this off at Balancing Beauty and Bedlam.

The great thing about having a pantry is that I can come across a yummy recipe like this and not have to run to the store to buy any of the ingredients. I’m making crockpot beef stew for dinner tonight so I can’t try this recipe right away but I will be trying it soon. I usually make Peach Crips in the oven but it’s nice to have an alternative to heating up the whole house.
I would even serve this for breakfast or with ice-cream for dessert. Thank you for the super easy tutorial.
one more reason to have more than one crockpot in the cupboard! I have 3 sizes and the ‘itty bitty dip crock’ that came free with one of the larger crocks. Now I’ll be stalking canned fruit sales. Thanks for sharing!
I have actually never used my slow cooker to make a dessert. I really should try it soon. 🙂
OOOOOO! Can’t wait to try. I bet it makes the house smell wonderful!
Mine is in the crockpot right now… 😀 Starting to smell good! The kids will be happy when they get home from school!
I have a couple of desserts flagged to make in the crock, but nothing peach. This would be great for a fall party. I agree with Jan-I haven 4 large crock pots (well, 3 since I just sent one with my college daughter) and the small dip one. It is great for parties, or even when cooking a couple things to bag up and freeze 🙂
I’ve used my crockpot to make a brownie dessert that has a fudge sauce with it. This looks yummy!!!
The Peach crockpot dessert sounds yummy. Can’t wait to try it….:)
I would really enjoy the recipe from Carissa for the brownie dessert if
you would not mind passing it on.
I found this recipe in those small recipes books @ the check-out aisle; Betty Crocker New Slow Cooker recipes Sept. 2000.
Hot Fudge Sundae Cake
1 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 Tbsp. baking cocoa
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup milk
2 Tbsp. veggie oil
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup chopped nuts (I’ve never used)
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup baking cocoa
1 1/2 cups hot water
Spray inside of 2-3 1/2 quart crockpot-I’ve used the small-dip size too. Mix flour, sugar, 2 Tbsp. cocoa, baking powder, & salt; stir in milk, oil & vanilla until smooth. Stir in nuts (if you use). Spread batter in crockpot.
Mix br. sugar & 1/4 c. cocoa in a sm. bowl & stir in the hot water until smooth. Pour over the batter in crockpot.
Cover & cook on high 2-2 1/2 hrs. -I opt. for the lesser time. Turn off crockpot; let cake stand 30 minutes to cool. Sauce will thicken as cake cools.
**Sauce is on the bottom of the cake-really good w/ vanilla ice cream!!
Carissa, thanks for sharing your recipe! I’m going to make this soon.

I haven’t used my slow cooker for dessert yet, but it’s a great idea. I can imagine how wonderful your house must have smelled.
Thank you Carrissa…looking forward to trying another yummy dessert.
Have a wonderful weekend….
I have never made dessert in the slow cooker. I found chickens on sale for $.77 a lb. so used my 3 big slow cookers to cook those today. I will have to try the peach crisp. It looks really yummy! Thanks to Carissa also for the hot fudge sundae cake recipe. It sounds good too.
I did not have peaches on hand, but did have canned apricots which I purchased for $.88 a can when a $ Store in our town closed, so I made apricot crisp instead of peach. I did pour a tablespoon of brandy over the apricots and sprinkled them with some additional cinnamon. This should be good with almost any drained, canned fruit. I will have to experiment. I have made a chocolate dessert similar to Carissa’s in the slowcooker. Rival used to make an accessory that would allow you to make cakes in the crockpot. It was kind of like a coffee can with a lid with vent holes. I have one I inherited from my mother. I don’t see it on the Rival website anymore. BTW those of you with iPhones, Rival does have an app for crockpot cooking. Go check it out. Tiffany, I really like your blog.
Loy, apricots sound great. There must be an iphone app for everything!

That looks delicious! Thank you for sharing. I will give it a try soon!
Ginger @ Crock Pot Recipe Exchange says
OH… this looks soooo good! Thanks for sharing. I will definitely have to put this on the menu AND soon 🙂
Cranberry Morning says
Visiting from Tasty Tuesday. 🙂 This looks delicious. Also, your photo with its orangey peach is gorgeous!! I make a lot of things in the slow cooker, so I’ve gotta try this!
Liz Santiago says
This looks delicious, would the same recipe apply for fresh picked peaches? We just went apple/peach picking and I have a lot to use. I have had my crockpot for years and am finally trying to use it 2xs a week to make my dinner plans easier. Thank you and love your website. I am awaiting the applesauce recipe!
Yum! How long would you cook it in the slow cooker if using fresh peaches?
Maria, I’ve never tried it with fresh peaches, but I’m guessing the same amount of time would work. If you try it, let me know how it turns out.
Tracey Hartley says
Is there by any chance an apple crisp version of this?
Check back on Thursday for the apple crisp in the slow cooker recipe. It is delicious!
I have this in the crockpot today! Vanilla ice cream waiting in freezer. Will keep you posted on the fam’s revied 🙂 Thanks for the recipe.
Delicious! My husband’s favorite dessert is peach pie. I cannot make pie, but was able to serve this warm and on time during a super busy day. He loved it!
This was really good! I was pinched for time and did exactly as above, only in an 8×8 glass pan, @ 350 for 20 minutes in the oven. Turned out great!
Monica Quinonez says
Ooh my! I will be making this so very soon! I’m sure its smell s really good and it will feel like spring time not thid hot summer days!
I’ve made peach crisp in the crock pot many times, as well as berry and apple crisps too. It’s a wonderful tool! I actually have one in the pot today as I’m cleaning my oven and can’t use it for a while. 🙂
KATHLEEN BACKHUS says
NEVER WRITTEN ON A BLOG BEFORE BUT LOVE YOUR RECIPES AND REVIEWS. BUT YOU MENTIONED SOMETHING ABOUT PUTTING THE CROC UNDER A BROILER ???? HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE ??
I AM KIND OF A BABY ON THE COMPUTER. SORRY. IS THERE ANYWAY I COULD GET CARISSA’S CHOC. BROWNIE SENT TO MY EMAIL. I TRIED TO COPY THE REVIEWS BUT IT DOESN’T WORK. PROBABLY JUST ME. HOPE YOU GET THIS. IT WAS FUN TO TRY.
Kathleen, to put the crock under the broiler, just lift the crock part out and put that under the broiler. It won’t be under there long, so it should be okay.
I’m not sure what brownie recipe your’e referring to though, or I’d send it along.
