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
- Mix the wet ingredients (the eggs, butter, and vanilla) into a bowl with the sugar, mixing until smooth.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
