Blackberry Peach Cobbler

This recipe is another twist on my standard peach cobbler. Fresh luscious peaches and giant juicy blackberries fresh from the vines. You really can’t beat late summer fruit baked into delicious desserts.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

6 – 8 large peaches, peeled and sliced
1 cup blackberries
1/2 cup sugar (I use white)
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon (optional – I don’t use it with blackberries)

Toss gently together and pour into a buttered baking dish. I use a cast iron pan for my baking dish.

For the topping

1 cup sugar
1 cup flour (I use Martha White self rising)
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
a dash of nutmeg

1/2 cup butter, softened to room temp
1 egg, beaten
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Sift together or give a good stir with a wire whisk the dry ingredients.

Using your finger tips add 1/2 cup butter and work it into the flour fixture until it looks like pea sized crumbles. Add the egg and vanilla and mix thoroughly. It will resemble a sticky batter. Dot the topping all over the top of the peaches.

Note: The butter should be soft, not melted, you want to be able to use your finger tips and work it into the flour and sugar mix. The topping will be like a sticky biscuit dough not a smooth batter. You can dot it around the top with your fingers to a teaspoon.

Bake in the hot oven for 30 – 45 minutes. Check after 25 minutes or so because if the peaches are very juicy they may start to bubble over and you’ll want to slip a baking pan under the rack to catch the spills. Once the top is golden brown you will want to set it aside and let the cobbler cool.

Serve warm alone or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

This Georgia Peach loves Virginia peaches!

Pssst … you need a spoon.

Helping Hands
Thank you for your generous donations to the rescue fund for Jack and Diana. Both of these wonderful Percheron horses were saved from the kill pens of slaughter auctions.



Jack is recovering from a severe leg injury and has many more months to go before his wounds are healed.



Diana could barely walk on her broken hooves. With extensive and expensive farrier work she is now standing tall and without pain.



She has at least a year ahead of her before her broken hooves will grow out to become healthy new feet to stand on. Her treatment will require ongoing farrier work expected to total into the thousands of dollars.

Jack and Diana both need a few hundred pounds on their bodies to be back in good health.

Through your generous donations and support Jack and Diana can expect a full return to their good health and sound footing.
