Peach & Blueberry Cobbler

July/August 2008

Your rating: None Average: 3.8 (340 votes)

This is a healthier version of a traditional cobbler, with canola oil in place of some of the butter and whole-wheat flour instead of all-purpose flour. Unlike more classic biscuit-topped cobblers, the peaches and blueberries are nestled into a tender batter that swells around the fruit as it bakes. Other fruits may be substituted. It's especially beautiful when baked in and served right from a cast-iron skillet.



READER'S COMMENT:
"Just made it yesterday for some company and it was a hit! I used plums instead of peaches and threw in some raspberries along with the blueberries... its really good and guilt free! "

It's okay. Won't use this recipe again though.

It's okay. After reading other reviews I added more sugar and some splenda and also put splenda on the peaches. The fruit was good but the dough didn't rise around the fruit and it took well over an hour before the dough was cooked through but it still had a little bit of a raw bitter taste to it. Seems like the batter is missing something. Egg?

Easy

meh

i used soy milk instead of regular milk because it was for people who are lactose intolerant. i don't know if this affected the taste at all, but this recipe could have been better. even thought the first bite is good, after you let it settle for a second the wheat after taste kills the fun of a cobbler. not worth an hours wait. only good in small bites not even the vanilla ice cream could mask the after taste, bummer. what a waste of blueberries.

easy to make, fast, healthy

It's a waste of bluberries

It's a waste of bluberries because you made substitutions to a recipe and it didn't turn out like you wanted! If you wanted a recipe using soy milk, look for a recipe with soy milk. Are the two stars for the correct recipe... or your "messed up" version of it?

Need more info

I loved it! I like the taste of whole wheat flour over white anyway. I did substitute, splenda, fat free milk and smart balance for the butter - tasted great but would love to know how that changed the nutritional info. Also, it doesn't indicate the size of a serving. I really needed to know this.

Loved the taste

Just Not Sweet

I always use whole wheat flour, so that didn't impact the recipe, but it did not hit the mark on sweetness. I topped it with whipped topping, but that only helped a bit. If I made this again, I would add a lot more sugar. That would completely negate the health factor of this dessert, so I doubt I'll be making it again.

Healthy treat

Fool me once

Everything went according to plan, but the taste just was not there. You have to make concessions for it being a wheat flour, less butter and sugar, etc. but even so, I think it was a waste of time to try this recipe. I'm isappointed, but at least this is the only recipe I've tried so far on this website that I didn't like! That's pretty good! I would never make this for company!
