Fresh Southern Peach Cobbler Recipe

A recipe for fresh Southern peach cobbler made with fresh peaches and a cake-like batter. Serve with whipped cream or ice cream for dessert or brunch. When peaches are in season, this recipe is a family favorite and tastes like it just came out of Grandma’s kitchen. It is easy to put together and uses ingredients that you normally have on hand. You could even use fresh nectarines instead of peaches. You can also use frozen or canned peaches in this recipe – the variations are noted below. I know many of you do not have good fresh peaches available at certain times of the year. Looking for a pretty cobbler dish? Check out these vintage finds on ebay.
