The Story

The origin of peach cobbler is not entirely clear, but it is believed to have been created in the southern United States during the 19th century. The word “cobbler” comes from the British term “cobble,” which means to patch or repair.

The original cobblers were savory meat dishes made with a filling of meat and vegetables topped with a layer of biscuits or dumplings. However, as fruits became more readily available and affordable, sweet fruit cobblers began to emerge, including peach cobbler.

Peach cobbler quickly became a popular dessert in the southern states of the US, where peaches were abundant. It was a simple and rustic dessert, made with fresh or canned peaches and a biscuit-like topping. It was often served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.

The Mediterranean-style

The main difference between Mediterranean-style peach cobbler and American-style peach cobbler is in the ingredients and flavors used. Mediterranean-style peach cobbler often incorporates flavors and ingredients common in Mediterranean cuisine, such as honey, nuts, and feta cheese

Here’s a recipe you can try:


6-7 medium-sized peaches, peeled and sliced
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup milk
1 egg
1/2 cup chopped almonds
1/2 cup chopped dried apricots
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese

Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).

In a large bowl, combine the sliced peaches, sugar, honey, melted butter, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla extract, and salt. Stir to coat the peaches well, then transfer the mixture to a 9×13 inch baking dish.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, milk, and egg until well combined. Pour the batter over the peaches in the baking dish.

Sprinkle the chopped almonds and dried apricots over the batter, then crumble the feta cheese on top.

Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the peaches are bubbly. Serve warm with a dollop of whipped cream or vanilla ice cream, if desired.

Enjoy your Mediterranean-style peach cobbler!
