Peach and Blueberry Cobbler


  • 7-8 ripe peaches, washed, pitted and chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 1 tsp. cornstarch
  • 3-4 tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp. fresh grated ginger
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup chilled butter, cut into chunks
  • 1 cup cream or milk
  • 1/2 tsp. almond extract


  1. In a large bowl gently toss peaches, blueberries, brown sugar, cornstarch and lemon juice. Transfer to a large casserole baking dish.
  2. In a separate bowl combine flour, baking powder and sugar. Cut in butter until the pieces are small, about the size of a pea.
  3. Add milk and almond essence to the flour mixture and stir together until a soft and sticky dough forms. Scoop heaped spoonfuls of dough on top of the fruit mixture to form “cobbles”.
  4. Bake in a preheated oven at 375 F for 40 minutes, or until the cobbler is golden brown.
  5. Allow to cool for 10-15 minutes before serving with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, frozen yogurt or a dollop of whipped cream.
