Recipe for Fresh Peach and Blueberry Cobbler!
Is there anything more comforting than the smell of fresh peach and blueberry cobbler baking in the oven? It’s the fresh aroma of love, selflessness, family and fun!
When I saw beautiful, bigger than fist size peaches ripening on my tiny peach tree I just knew I had to do something special with them! Of course we ate them fresh like an apple, sliced up and sprinkled with sugar! But I knew I needed to make cobbler out of them, and I wanted it to be fAnTaStIc! I decided to make up my own recipe and it was DELICIOUS! Is that bragging? Oh well! 🙂
4 large fresh peaches (if your peaches are small use more)
1 C fresh blueberries
1 stick butter
1 C flour
1/2 white sugar
1/2 C rolled oats
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 Tbls brown sugar
- Wash fresh peaches, peel, de-pit, slice length wise, place in bowl.
*A super easy tip to pealing peaches is by blanching them. To blanch bring a pot of water to a boil, drop peaches into boiling water for just a few second, like 30, then take them out and the skin will be so soft that it will just peel off in your hands!
- Wash fresh blueberries and put them in the bowl with the peaches.
- Preheat oven to 375
- In a medium sized mixing bowl mix together dry ingredients: flour, white sugar, rolled oats, salt, baking powder. Stir.
- Melt butter either in the microwave or on the stove. Pour into a 9X9 inch baking dish. Pour fruit on top of butter. Pour batter on top of fruit.
- Sprinkle brown sugar over the top of everything.
- Bake uncovered for about 30-40 minutes. Keep checking it until it passes the toothpick test! *Toothpick test: where you insert a toothpick in the center of the cobbler. When it comes back out batter free, it’s done!
Can you make this dessert with dehydrated fruit from your food storage? You bet! If you are itching for some fresh peach and blueberry cobbler, but don’t have any fresh peaches or blueberries, don’t worry! Dehydrated peaches and blueberries can work as well! Re-hydrate the peaches and blueberries in your food storage then follow the instructions above.
Re-hydrating fruit is simple. There are usually instructions on the can with the fruit to water ratio. You leave your fruit to soak in the recommended water amount for the time suggested on the can and you’re ready to go!
Other recipes I’ve seen for peach cobbler use 1/2 C more sugar than I do. I just didn’t think it was necessary so I left that 1/2 C out…. Look at me being all health conscious! I figured, the chances of my family devouring this cobbler with good ol’ vanilla ice cream are um… 100%! So they wouldn’t even notice the reduction in sugar. Sneaky? No. Wise? Yes!
It was so much fun creating this recipe. I hope you enjoy it! If you make adjustments that you prefer, let me know what they are! I’d love to know!
