Peach & Blueberry Cobbler

July/August 2008

Your rating: None Average: 3.8 (292 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! "

Wow! I had some reservations about this recipe after reading some of the reviews, but made it according to the recipe. The only deviation was that I used 5 1/2 cups of a mix of frozen fruit that contained peaches, blueberries, and strawberries. This definitely did not taste like bread with fruit to me. I keep my whole wheat flour in the fridge, it makes a difference.

Easy to make. Moist and delicious without being overly sweet.

It between great and awesome!

I made this for company after we picked 18.5 lbs of organic blueberries. It was a big hit by all. Not overly sweet and was able to taste the natural sweetness from the fruit. Will definitely be making this one again.

not too sweet, flavorful

Everyone loved it I served it with Vanilla ice cream. It's not too sweet but I actually like that about the cobbler. I am watching my sugars so I think this uses way less than other recipies will definitely make this again!

How does this recipe ever

How does this recipe ever "set?" It was gooey and oily- and I used the appropriate measure of all the ingredients. I also suspected the batter could use an egg and more flour- I should have trusted my instincts. It was so liquid, it never solidified.

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?
