Blueberry Peach Cobbler Recipe

A serving of blueberry peach cobbler topped with ice cream

This easy blueberry peach cobbler is one of my favorite summer desserts. All of the fresh summer produce is so colorful and bursting with flavor! Serve it with vanilla ice cream for the ultimate treat.

Ingredients

For the blueberry peach filling:

  • 4 cups blueberries, stems removed
  • 2 cups sliced peaches, skin on
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • Zest of one lemon

For the biscuit topping:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 4 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold and cut into small pieces
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 eggs

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

To make the filling: 

In a medium bowl combine the sugar, lemon zest and flour.

Put the fruit in a large pot, then add the sugar mix. Toss to combine.

Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until all the berries release their juices, all the flavors meld together and the liquid has thickened a bit about 5-7 minutes. Set aside.

To make the biscuit topping: 

In a large bowl combine the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt.

Add the butter pieces and mix them into the flour with your hands until the mixture resembles coarse bread crumbs. (You can also do this with a food processor and a pastry blade.)

Add the milk, then the eggs, one at a time, stirring between additions with a wooden spoon. Mix until just combined.

Assemble and bake:

Transfer the cooked blueberry peach mixture to a 9×13 glass baking dish. Use a tablespoon measure to drop spoonfuls of batter onto the filling, one next to the other. Use the back of a spoon to spread the batter a bit and make sure it is uniform. You don’t want any very thick spots where the batter would require longer to bake.

Place a cookie sheet under the baking dish and bake for 30-35 minutes, or until the cobbler topping is golden brown and the biscuits are cooked through.

Be sure to check at the 25 minute mark. If the biscuits are browning too quickly, cover with foil so that you can continue baking and allow them to cook through without the tops over baking. 

Serve hot with vanilla ice cream.
