National Peach Cobbler Day pays homage to one of the most eaten desserts in Black households—So much so, it’s not far-fetched to claim the rich, fruity, crispiness of peach cobbler our own. Peach cobbler wasn’t always celebrated. The day first came about in the 1950s when the Georgia Peach Festival initiated the day in an effort to boost the sales of canned peaches. That said if anyone tells you a traditional peach cobbler uses fresh peaches, you can debate that claim with the facts.

What makes peach cobbler the ultimate dessert is the many takes on how to prepare it. The sweet and tart dessert is simple to make and is perfect for when you don’t want to commit to making more involved desserts. MADAMENOIRE celebrates this mouthwatering baked good by highlighting three peach cobbler recipes from some amazing Black chefs.

Those looking for a unique spin on your traditional peach cobbler have to check out this recipe. It’s smoky, spicy and sweet and will definitely impress the foodies in your life. This one’s for the advanced baker. It has not one but two crusts –a vodka all-butter pie crust for the base and a biscuit-like crust on the top. This one is best made in a cast-iron pan – and it’s going to get a little messy when you serve it up, but it’s worth it. The ingredients list is extensive on this one because you’ll be making two crusts, candied bacon and the peach filling.
