Summer hasn’t started until you’ve made a peach and blueberry cobbler. It’s kind of a must. Typically I’m a chocolate chip cookie and cake kind of girl, but I’ll never turn down an in season fruit cobbler. It’s kind of the perfect end to a summer meal.
I love how cobblers are versatile, unlike most baking recipes. But here, you use any fruit you like, or anything that’s fresh, sweet, and in season! I chose the most beautiful peaches from the farmer’s market, contrasted with plump blueberries. Perfection!
Feel free to use plums, cherries, strawberries, or raspberries! You can’t go wrong.
- 8 large peaches
- 1 cup blueberries
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 2 tablespoons lemon zest (zest from 1 lemon)
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1 1/2 tablespoons all purpose flour
For the crumble
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup old fashioned oats
- 3/4 cup all purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 stick butter (COLD and diced)
- 1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the peaches and boil for 30 seconds. Remove and place peaches in a large bowl of ice water. Once peaches are cool, carefully remove the skins. They should come off easily by just pushing back on the skins.
- 2) Dice peaches into large cubes. Add the peaches, blueberries, sugar, lemon zest, lemon juice, and 2 tablespoons flour to a bowl. Mix until well combined then let rest while you make the crumble. If mixture becomes too juicy, add a little more flour.
- 3) In a food processor, electric mixer, or using your hands, combine the brown sugar, oats, flour, cinnamon, and cold butter, until mixture comes together and has formed little crumbs the size of peas.
- 4) Grease the inside of a 9×13 inch baking dish and pour in the peach and blueberry mixture. Evenly sprinkle the crumble topping and bake for 50-60 minutes, until top is lightly browned and crisp, and the fruit is bubbly. Let sit for at least 10 minutes before serving, and top with vanilla ice cream.
Don’t forget the ice cream!
