Cardamom Peach Cobbler


Decadent Peach Cobbler with cardamom and a drop biscuit top. This cardamom peach cobbler is the thing all desserts should be made of.

Who doesn’t love a good peach cobbler? And truth be told, if the answer is anything but a resounding, “everyone” I don’t want to know the answer. This cardamom peach cobbler has the warm flavor of cardamom, the bright acidity of peaches, and the sweet goodness of a buttermilk drop biscuit.

I’m not sure which part of this peach cobbler I like more – the fact that it’s delicious or that it’s crazy easy to make. I suppose this is one of those left hand meets right hand recipes, in that I love that it’s delicious and crazy easy to make. It’s very much a mix it all together and stick it in the over. Oh and you don’t have to waste an endless amount of time beautifying it. Luckily for all of us, peach cobbler is one of those desserts that’s allowed to be a bit messy and imperfect, unlike so many!

No real pitfalls here, other than – MAKE SURE TO BAKE WITH A TRAY UNDER IT! The last thing you need is a big goopy mess at the bottom of your oven. The only other note is, I like to let my peach mix sit for about 20 minutes before baking it, really giving that cardamom a chance to infuse into the peaches, but definitely not a necessity.

This cardamom peach cobbler is incredibly easy to make and well worth the minimal effort. You can eat it hot or cold, with ice cream or without, and even a couple days in it’s delicious.
