This classic peach cobbler is a Southern staple and is a delicious way to highlight the amazing flavor of fresh or canned peaches with simple pantry ingredients. Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream and you'll be in heaven!
Southern Peach cobbler is a traditional dessert in the south and all over the world. Warm, sweet peaches with a decadent cobbler style crust is the perfect treat for any occasion.
Fresh Peach Cobbler just may be the ultimate summer dessert comfort food. It’s simple, easy and a timeless classic with a buttery cobbler topping, fresh juicy peaches, and hints of cinnamon in a rich, sweet syrup. This fresh peach cobbler is the best I have ever eaten. It has a perfectly wonderful crust that is crisp on top but is also soft and moist and chewy thanks to the juicy peaches bubbling below it.
First appearing in the time of the colonists, peach cobbler has grown to become a much-loved standard of Southern cuisine. Not to be confused with crisps or crumbles, which use streusel style toppings, or buckles, which put the dough on the bottom, the iconic cobbler tops cooked seasonal fruit with a biscuit-style dough baked to bubbly, sticky sweet, crunchy and crumbly perfection.
While you can make this classic using a baking dish and cooking the peaches in the oven before adding the topping, the silky firm texture that comes from cooking the peaches stove top in cast iron makes all the difference. A word on serving. Some folks will tell you that cobbler just isn’t cobbler unless served warm with a heaping scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side. We might argue this point, but it’s impolite to talk with our mouths full.
