I love cobblers, especially peach cobblers. They are such a delicious classic. The problem with this one was I didn’t have enough peaches for the size cobbler I wanted to make. I added some blueberries to make up for the lack of peaches. The other problem was I didn’t have fresh, and had to use frozen. There was some bleeding from the frozen berries, so it is slightly ugly, but it still tasted amazing. So, if you have 4 cups of peaches, make just a peach cobbler. Much more true to form.
Also, my peaches were a little overdone. They were ugly, but still tasted awesome!
Peel and cube peaches.
Add them and the blueberries, if you need them, to the cast iron pan.
Mix your batter, it’s simple to make. Pour over fruit.
Sprinkle with a little bit of sugar. This isn’t necessary, but that crunch is worth it.
Bake about an hour. I went a little longer because of the extra juices from the frozen berries.
At this point you can either scoop it out while it is still warm.
Or you can wait, like we did, and slice it when it has cooled.
It’s beautiful and flavorful!It’s great eaten as is, or with ice cream or whipped cream.
- 4 cups dice plums. I split mine in half and then cut in quarters.
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour If you prefer, you can always use an all purpose or gluten free.
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 2/3 cup granulated sugar You can definitely use less if you want, 1/3-1/2 could still be good.
- 1 1/2 cup buttermilk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.Prepare 10 inch cast iron skillet. It's my favorite to bake cobblers in. If you don't have one, you can always just use a 10 inch cake pan. Butter or spray.Places plums in pan.In separate bowl, mix remaining ingredients until smooth. Pour over top of fruit. Sprinkle with about a tablespoon sugar. This step isn't necessary if you are trying to cut sugar, but I love the crunch it produces.Bake for about an hour. If you are using frozen berries like I did, bake a little longer. Allow it to cool or eat it right out of the oven. Either way, it is incredibly delicious!You can also eat it like it is, or serve it with ice cream or whip cream. Now, sit back and enjoy. You deserve it!
