Delicious and Shockingly Easy

Here is my tried and true, family-approved recipe for blueberry-peach cobbler. Orange and blue may be opposites on the color wheel but are in true harmony when combined in the sweet taste of blueberries and peaches. My recipe uses self rising dough so it mixes with the juices as it cooks, producing a fruity, moist, and pretty blue dough. The twist is the addition of raspberry, adding a surprise hint of sweet tartness, and the inclusion of bread flour, which helps make a thicker crust on top of the cobbler.

Go ahead and bring this home made cobbler to a picnic, a barbeque, or a potluck dinner. It will always be a hit!

Ingredients

  • 8 cups ripe peaches, sliced, fresh or frozen
  • 2 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter
  • 2 1/2 cups self rising flour
  • 1/2 cup bread flower
  • 3 cups milk, whole or 2%
  • 1 1/2 cups blueberries, fresh or frozen
  • 1 1/2 cups raspberries, fresh or frozen
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • cinnamon, to taste

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Now combine the peaches, the blueberries, the lemon juice, and 2 cups of white sugar in a sauce pan. Bring to a boil then simmer for 10 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat.
  2. Melt the butter by putting in the microwave on high for 20 seconds. Alternatively, you can slice up the 2 sticks of butter and put it in the casserole dish. The butter should melt in the oven in about 5 minutes.
  3. Now mix the flour, milk, and the remaining sugar (1/2 cup white sugar, 1/2 cup brown sugar) in a bowl. Scrape the mixture into the casserole dish on top of the melted butter. Pour the cooked fruit on top of this and stir. Make sure to spread the ingredients evenly.
  4. Sprinkle the top with ground cinnamon, to taste. The cobbler should be done in 40 -50 minutes, depending on the amount of moisture of the fruit used.
  5. If a toothpick is inserted into the center of the dessert and it comes out clean, the cobbler is done.
  6. Serve immediately and enjoy!

Tips

The traditional way to serve this cobbler is hot out of the oven with vanilla ice cream scooped on top. Home made vanilla ice cream is even better.

Cold or microwaved leftovers eaten the next day are also delicious and travel well in Tupperware for work time snacks.

To save on calories, whole milk can be substituted with 2% milk. The 2 1/2 cups of white sugar can be reduced down to 2 cups. The cobbler will be less sweet but still excellent.

If fresh peaches are unavailable, a combination of canned and frozen peaches will work as a substitute. However, the cobbler will have more moisture so it may be necessary to add 5 or so minutes onto the cook time. I find no difference in taste or moisture using fresh blueberries verses frozen.
