Peach Buttermilk Cobbler

Peach Buttermilk Cobbler {with Vanilla Ice Cream}.

I discovered several months ago and quite by accident that some people prefer cobbler over cake.  It just so happened on that day I had a quart of fresh blackberries.  And so I made, and we mutually enjoyed, Blackberry Buttermilk Cobbler.

On this day, I happen to have 10 peaches fresh from the Farmers Market.  I’ll start by making Peach Buttermilk Cobbler.

This might just be the easiest cobbler recipe I’ve come across.  The batter is prepared then poured into a buttered casserole.  Fresh fruit is sprinkled over top, then dusted with sugar and dotted with butter.  Into the oven it goes.

As the smell of cobbler filled the air…. scratch that, as much as I’d like it to sound all romantic and stuff it was the sound of the timer that brought family to the kitchen.  It was however the smell of freshly baked Peach Buttermilk Cobbler that grabbed their attention.  And without hesitation we said “vanilla ice cream sure would go well with that.”

Was there vanilla ice cream in the house?  Nope.  Was I going to let that hold me back?  Nope.  Thank goodness for Homemade Ice Cream, made in a Ziploc bag, in just 10 minutes.

While the Georgia peaches are so fresh and beautiful, Peach Buttermilk Cobbler with Vanilla Ice Cream was the perfect dessert to enjoy on this end-of-summer holiday weekend.
