Texas Peach Buckle

Texas Peach Buckle

We raise peaches in Texas, too. I know Georgia holds the honor as the official “Peach State” but Texans have raised them, and we still do. If you ever get a chance to stand in a peach orchard and pick a ripe peach from a tree than you will understand what a true blessing is. To bite into that ripe peach and have the juices run down your chin will be one of those special summer memories that you carry with you for a life time. There is something so magical about it that you start to wonder if God himself left that peach on the tree just for you.

A Peach Buckle is made with a batter, and a Peach Cobbler is made with a biscuit topping.

I have seen over the years, reviews on restaurants that describe a buckle but call it a Cobbler.  Buckles have been around since the creation of the United States if not before, in Europe verses the cobbler that was published in a peach councils advertisement in the 1950s. Of course a buckle can be made with any fruit but I love the sweet taste of peaches with it.

My Peach Buckle is the way it has been made for generations. This is not a dump cake so be prepared to spend the time to create this Beautiful dessert.

A dutch oven is the best way to make it as it can be used on the stove and in the oven. A dutch oven is a very useful addition to any kitchen and I have used cheap and expensive ones and the only thing I can tell you is that they all do the job. The difference is in the coating. The cheaper ones do not have as tough of an enamel coating and will only last a few years verses the expensive ones that usually come with a lifetime guarantee. I suggest adding one to your kitchen cookware. (Here is a great Dutch Oven.)
