When I first wanted to try to make peach cobbler many years ago, I pictured more of a peach crisp. I grew up with apple crisp, so of course peach cobbler was just that but with peaches, right? Wrong. Peach cobbler has a gooey cake like topping that is almost spongy and just wonderful. It is truly best warm with some vanilla ice cream and whipped cream. Yes, both.
IT may seem strange to put the peach on top of the batter, but the batter rises up over it. This is one of our favorite summer desserts and with peaches being so in season right now, it is the perfect time to make it! Very easy and delicious!
