NEW! Peach Cobbler at Epcot’s Liberty Inn

There is so much going on with in Epcot right now with incredible food! With the Flower and Garden Festival off to a strong start (don’t forget to read our full review of all of the food here!), I think it’s going to be a great Spring at Disney World!

And now we get to tell you about a brand new dessert offering at Liberty Inn in the America Pavilion — Peach Cobbler! But this isn’t just a random new dessert. This cobbler has a story.

It’s a recipe inspired by Mrs. Fisher’s Cookbook, the first African-American Cookbook, published in 1881. The book is part of the Kinsey Collection, an exhibit celebrating African-American art and history, which recently opened in the America Pavilion in World Showcase.

The cobbler is baked into the standard Disney counter service disposable black bowl. A word about cobblers: the term encompasses lots of different styles. Some prefer a crumb topping, while others favor a biscuit. Still others make cobblers that resemble pies with pastry shells top and bottom.

While the book speaks to a pie-like creation, this cobbler falls firmly into the crumble category.

Close up, you can see the crumb topping of butter, flour, sugar, oatmeal, and spices, that bakes together to form a sort of crust on top of the fruit. It looked — and smelled! — like it was made from scratch in my own kitchen.

The flavor is the perfect balance of sweet with a little cinnamon, and the richness of the butter definitely comes through.

Breaking through the topping, you come to the peach filling. I could be missing the mark, but this didn’t seem like a canned filling. It had a good balance of sweet and tart flavors, and the juices tasted fresher than what you normally get from a can.

Overall, we found the cobbler to be really delicious, with the flavor of a home-baked dessert.

It only needed to be warm with a scoop of ice cream to be perfect!

    I recall an excellent peach cobbler at the Crystal Palace breakfast. Sadly, it wasn’t on the menu when we were last there.

    Excellent frozen peaches are available and I bet those were frozen… I wish they would leave the oatmeal out.. but I think I will try this one.. Ice cream would be wonderful.. Or a nice spritz of whipped cream…

    Thanks!
