GMA: Colonel Sanders Cookbook

When you think Colonel Sanders, you probably think delicious fried chicken. However, the famous Colonel and creator of KFC had a lot of lesser-known recipes that had been widely undiscovered, until now. Edward Lee is the chef at 610 Magnolia Avenue in Louisville, Kentucky, and is a paid spokesperson for KFC. Chef Lee has modernized some of the Colonel’s traditional recipes, from meatloaf to fried red tomatoes. Chef Lee stopped by GMA September 6 to share another dish, the Colonel’s Upside-Down Peach Cobbler Recipe.


GMA: Colonel Sanders’ Peach Cobbler Recipe


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup melted butter or margarine
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1¹/² cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup  milk
  • 6 to 8 fresh peaches, peeled, seeded and sliced, OR
  • 20-ounce package of frozen peach slices, thawed


  1. Mix the wet ingredients (the eggs, butter, and vanilla) into a bowl with the sugar, mixing until smooth.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix your dry ingredients: flour, baking powder and baking soda. Then, stir in whole milk. Slowly add this mixture to the wet ingredients and mix until a smooth batter is formed.
  3. In oven-safe, individual pans or dishes, divide the peaches and top with sugar. Then, add a large spoonful of the batter on top, spreading evenly.
  4. Bake for one hour at 350 degrees, then enjoy!

Buttermilk Whipped Cream

To serve along with your hot and delicious peach cobbler, Chef Lee recommends a very simple buttermilk whipped cream; it sounds fancy, but it’s a piece of cake. Just mix one part buttermilk with two parts heavy cream, whipping just as you would normal whipped cream. Place a dollop on your cobblers to make them even more delicious.
