Our blueberry bushes have out produced themselves this year and we have been enjoying the blueberries in just about everything! This recipe was taken from a peach cobbler recipe found in my grandmother’s cookbook, so you are free to omit the berries if you don’t have any on hand.
Our peaches, blueberies and blackberries always seem to ripen at the same time each season so we’ve gotten used to combining them in recipes and honestly I think they go great together!
The best part of this recipe and what makes it stand out among most peach cobbler recipes in my opinion are the spices it calls for. Especially the nutmeg. Nutmeg and peaches are a winning combination when baking, but you’ll have to try it to see for yourselves.
Gathering the berries is a family affair at our house,
Right down to the smallest member.
PEACH BERRY COBBLER
4 Cups sliced, fresh Peaches
1(+/-) Cup Blueberries, Blackberries or combination
1 Tablesp. Lemon Juice
1/3-1/2 Cup granulated Sugar
1/8 teasp. Nutmeg
2 Tablesp. melted Butter
Combine these ingredients and spead evenly in a greased 12″x8″x2″ baking dish.
(Confession: I didn’t have enough fresh peaches at the time this picture was taken so these are canned peaches, for all you experts out there that would be able to tell the difference. If you don’t have fresh peaches on hand you can use canned peaches and omit the lemon juice & sugar in the recipe.)
1 Cup Flour
1 teaspoon Baking Powder
1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
3 Tablespoons Sugar
4 Tablesp. Unsalted Butter cut into small pieces
2/3 cup Buttermilk
1 Tablespoon Sugar + 1/4 teasp. cinnamon sprinkled on top.
Whipped Cream or Vanilla Ice Cream
Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Meanwhile combine all dry ingredients for cobbler crust in a bowl. Work in the butter with a pastry cutter or your fingers, to make the texture like cornmeal. Add buttermilk and stir to form a soft dough.
Drop rounded spoonfuls of dough on top. Sprinkle with combined 1 tablespoon sugar and cinnamon mixture. Bake until fruit is bubbly and crust topping is golden brown, about 40 minutes. Serve warm with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream!! Enjoy!
