Peach and Cherry Cobbler combines two of my favorite cobbler recipes and two of my favorite summer fruits.
Why does the summer fruit season have to end? There is nothing I love more about hot days than biting into a lush peach or spitting cherry pits into a bucket.
I can honestly say that I’ve eaten at least my weight in cherries over the past month. I’ve also incorporated them into my food, like Peach and Cherry Cobbler.
Cherry Peach Cobbler
I’ve actually made Peach and Cherry Cobbler two times in the last month because it is such a hit. Once I even added blueberries to the mix.
The cobbler topping isn’t overly sweet and has a hint of almond without being overwhelming, while fresh stone fruits don’t lose their texture or taste, but instead fossilize into the bready mixture.
This recipe is perfect for bringing to potlucks and BBQs. It comes together quick, tastes great and can even be made in a disposable aluminum pan so you don’t have to worry about picking your serving ware up after the party.
It can be made ahead of time and travels with ease. What more can you ask for in a summer dessert recipe?
Fresh or Frozen Fruits
I don’t want to generalize here, but I can say with a good amount of certainty that most recipes that call for cherries or peaches are best with fresh fruit.
I will also admit to have making this with frozen fruit because when the crazing hits during the winter months you gotta find a short cut!
If you do use frozen fruit, make sure they are fully thawed and drained well. There is potentially more water and this can make your cobbler soupy.
You even use a combination of fresh and frozen.
I love juicy sweet peaches with slightly tart cherries, but you can use any stone fruits you’d like Just make sure to cut them into uniform sizes.
Stone fruit includes:
Other fresh berries can work as well. Like mentioned above, I’ve also added blueberries.
You are using fresh peaches you have the choice of peeling them or not.
This cobbler recipe can be made ahead of time and either served at room temperature or warm. You can reheat it in the oven on a low temperature to make sure you don’t overcook the sponge or for just a scoop, in the microwave on 50% power for 15 seconds.
While it isn’t the best dessert to be frozen, it is doable in smaller servings. Cooked fruits just don’t thaw the same as raw.
What You’ll Need:
Cherry Pitter– I used to think this was an excessive gadget I didn’t need. I was wrong.
9 x 13 Glass Baking Dish– an absolute essential for any kitchen! Use it for baking, marinating or storing. Get one with a lid, you’ll thank me later.
Wood cutting board – wood won’t dull your knives like plastic and if treated properly, has natural antimicrobial properties.
Stand Mixer– Oh, it was a happy day when I finally got my stand mixer and now I am not quite sure how I ever liked without one. Do yourself a favor and invest. A quality mixer will last a lifetime, plus more. Plus, they come in fun colors!
Large Mixing Bowl– Use a mixing bowl a little larger than you think you’ll need. There is less pressure to keep it in the bowl. You can always transfer it to a smaller serving bowl later. I personally look for ones with lids so I can cut down on plastic wrap and aluminum foil waste.
