Peach and Blueberry Cobbler
Cobblers instantly remind me of childhood. My mom made them a lot during the summer to serve along with ice cream. Normally she would make peach (which I adored) or blackberry (which I didn't adore so much, but we'll get into that some other time! ;o)).
As I've gotten older I like to make peach or strawberry or blueberry or apple or some mix of two or three! This is a very easy recipe to play around with. Add the fruit you like, mix them up...That's the fun of cooking!
What You'll Need:
3 cups of unbleached all purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons of sea salt
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1 cup of organic cane sugar
2 cups of buttermilk
2 - 15 ounce cans of sliced peaches in light syrup or 6 cups of chopped peaches with 1 cup of organic cane sugar that have sat until a peachy syrup forms (About 1-2 hours)
1 cup of blueberries, washed and any debris or stems removed
Preheat oven to 375 F.
Sift or whisk together flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder. Add in sugar and stir to mix. Add milk and eggs and stir until completely incorporated. Pour batter into a 13 X9 inch baking dish that has been sprayed with non-stick spray. Pour peaches over the batter and then add blueberries carefully making sure they spread out across the entire cobbler. Do NOT stir the peaches and blueberries into the batter. They will sink as the cobbler bakes and the fruit juices are what make the "crust" turn golden and sugary.
Bake for 50-60 minutes or until "crust" is completely browned and fruit is bubbly. Serve plain or with a little ice cream or whipped cream.
Makes 8-12 servings.

What you don't like blackberries? The seeds perhaps?

The seeds don't bother me. It's the flavor that I don't care for. I don't care for raspberry for that reason either. Though if blackberry juice is mixed in with something I can tolerate it, but not so much with the raspberry.

Dianne, I love blackberries - when I was little my aunt had a tree in her backyard and I'd eat a ton of berries at once... So you can imagine how mad my mom got with all those stains in my clothes. :)
Your cobbler looks delicious - I bet peaches are great with blackberries.
