Blueberry Peach Cobbler

Blueberry Peach Cobbler is easy to make, and even more fun to eat! It tastes especially good with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream.

What’s Special About This Recipe?

Here’s my very best Blueberry Peach Cobbler…in a lovely blue hue…just waiting to make your day! It’s easy to throw this baby in a skillet and pop it in the oven.

I just had to make a cobbler with my last batch of peaches from the farmer’s market. Although I love peaches, I adore blueberries even more. So, why not put them together in this easy, biscuit-topped Blueberry Peach Cobbler?

You’re gonna love this special treat. The biscuits are crunchy, and the cobbler is sweet…so you guessed it…this cobbler is pretty incredible, especially with a big scoop (or three) of vanilla ice cream.

Why You’ll Love This Cobbler

Take a gander at the before and after pics. It’s kinda amazing how this cobbler morphs from yellow, blue and white to biscuit and berry nirvana!

When it comes to cooking fruit, I like to make it easy on myself and use preserves instead of sugar and other added ingredients. Preserves are already the right consistency, and they add an extra layer of flavor.

It’s also fun to experiment with different jams and marmalades, so feel free to change it up if you wish.

The biscuit topping is a variation of my Cat Head Biscuit recipe with sugar added. I can’t tell you how delicious this is….you’re just gonna have to make the recipe to taste the goodness!

How to Make It

Peel the peaches, then dice and place in a large bowl. Add the blueberries and mix in the preserves gently. In a separate bowl, mix flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda and sugar together.

Pour fruit mixture into a 12″ cast iron skillet. Grate cold butter into the flour mixture and mix until crumbly with one hand. Make an indention in the middle of the flour mixture and pour in buttermilk. Work buttermilk into flour mixture until slightly moistened.

Form biscuits into seven round balls and drop onto fruit in cast iron skillet. Pat down a bit. Brush the tops of the biscuits with butter and bake for 35 minutes until golden brown and bubbly.

Blueberry Peach Cobbler will soon become one of your favorite desserts!

  4. In a separate bowl, add flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda and sugar. Mix together well.
  5. Grate the cold butter into the flour mixture with a grater.  Mix into flour until crumbly with one  hand. Try not to over mix or the butter will melt.

  7. Pat biscuits into 7 round shapes and drop onto fruit in cast iron skillet.
  8. Brush tops of biscuits with butter.

Notes

Biscuits will spread during cooking to create the perfect topping.

If you can’t find peach preserves, apricot preserves work just as well.

    Oh, I think I could do this. It sounds great! I guess it would be cheating if I used Bisquick or cake mix instead of going out and buying the buttermilk. I know you’re trying to make me a better cook so maybe I’ll get a small carton of buttermilk.

    Why didn’t you call me when you made this?

  3. This looks so delicious! I love blueberries, peaches, and all types of cobbler, so it’s totally a winner! I plan to make it, but I’ll have to convert the recipe to gluten-free. Fortunately, there are plenty of gluten-free flours available now.

  4. This looks so good. I made chicken and biscuits last night for dinner and thought “why don’t I make biscuits more often they are easy to make and taste so good.” I think you have just given me an excellent excuse to make more biscuits. Thanks for sharing at Pin Junkie Pin Party.

    Nothing is better than peaches! Except when they are combined with blueberries, topped with biscuits:) what a great dessert!

  6. I’ve never made cobbler with biscuits before but this recipe looks great!
