NATIONAL PEACH COBBLER DAY – April 13

NATIONAL PEACH COBBLER DAY

National Peach Cobbler Day is observed annually on April 13.  It recognizes a delicious dessert that originated during the 19th century.

Unable to make traditional suet puddings due to lack of suitable ingredients and cooking equipment, the settlers instead covered a stewed filling with a layer of uncooked plain biscuits or dumplings, fitted together. When the dish is fully cooked, the surface has the appearance of a cobbled street.  The name may also derive from the fact that the ingredients are “cobbled” together. Some cobbler recipes resemble a thick-crusted, deep-dish pie with both top and bottom crust.

In 2007, the world’s largest peach cobbler was made at the Georgia Peach Festival.  It consisted of:

  • 90 lbs of butter
  • 150 lbs of sugar
  • 150 lbs of flour
  • 32 gallons of milk
  • 75 gallons of peaches
