Easy Southern Peach Cobbler

Cobblers hands down are one my favorite desserts.   On any given occasion that calls for baking or dessert making,  I leave the task to my husband who can without a doubt work his magic in the kitchen.  This time was different I needed a peach cobbler recipe to call my own.  The journey began with exchanging ideas with friends and co-workers, then there was the endless streams of You Tube Videos, recipe sites and blog posts.  Did I mention the numerous recipe attempts in my kitchen that were failures? Oh, those too.  What was clear, is there are a MILLION delicious ways to prepare a peach cobbler.  

After several attempts with no success, I came across a basic recipe for peach cobbler and with a little improvising (buttermilk for milk, the addition of cinnamon and vanilla) turned out to be a delicious version that I can proudly call my own with "Easy to prepare"  being the key phrase.

Enjoy!!

Nothing reminds me of summer like peach cobbler. What is nice is that you don't have to have fresh peaches to have a good peach cobbler an yours sounds good.

Hi Velva!

It never fails, right smack in the middle of winter I get the craziest desire for peach cobbler! Of course, peach season is not until August here in PA. I love this recipe and I especially like that you have made it all your own! Kudos to you!

Thank you so much for taking us on this journey to find Velva's Easy Southern Peach Cobbler:)

Next to fruit crisps, I love cobblers. This is a beauty, Velva, and a scoop of vanilla ice cream would take this over the top!

oohh yumm I keep meaning to try and make a cobbler, will this recipe a try. May I can show this to my husband who usually does the washing up rather than cook.

sangeeta said...

Oh this looks so good that I am tempted to bake one as I have a basket full of peaches right now. No one at home to eat desserts :-(
Would be making a salad with peaches, feta and rucola today but this cobbler will be on my mind :-)

Leigh said...

As much as I love chocolate, I can never pass up a good cobbler, and yes, peach is a hands-down favorite!

Peach cobbler is my absolute favorite thing in the summers! I am so tempted to make one right now after seeing this gorgeous photo!

Cobbles are fabulous in the summer. We just got our first taste of this year's South Carolina peaches and they are once again spectacular. I wonder if it would be okay to substitute fresh peaches.

I'll have to try this-I've always heard about it and wondered exactly what the ingredients were. Not a common dessert in Australia but still perfect weather for our now winter.

Rhodesia said...

That sounds delicious, I have book marked it for return from our holiday. We are off to Spain and Portugal for three weeks with no computer :-) will catch up when we return in July. Take care Diane

Kitchen Belleicious said...

Mmm, I haven't had a good peach cobbler in ages. I can't wait for peach season to come around again! :-)

Love me some cobbler. My favorite cobbler recipe is very similar to this one, but I love your buttermilk version. I'll be trying this soon.

T.W. Barritt at Culinary Types said...

Love cobbler, and that hint of vanilla and cinnamon sounds fantastic! And, I'm more than happy that canned peaches are acceptable! Why slave over a sweet finish to the dinner?

Monet said...
