Here’s the printable recipe from my “1950s Peach Cobbler” video that was recently published on YouTube. The cobbler is delicious any time of the year. I make it just as my maternal grandmother did — with canned peaches!
In case you missed it, here’s the video how-to for this golden dessert that our grandmothers (and great-grandmothers!) routinely made in the 1950s. Also included in the video recipe are some memories of my own grandmother, Margaret Thelma DuVaul. I hope you enjoy the episode!
If you love poodle skirts, Elvis Presley, and “I Love Lucy,” then you will probably adore this 1950s Peach Cobbler. Wash it down with a pot of freshly-percolated Folger’s, okay?
