David Bonom's mother made a speedy cobbler using frozen fruit and a simple batter. We like it with fresh peaches and blackberries.
1/4 cup butter, melted and divided
3 cups sliced fresh peaches (about 1 pound)
2 cups fresh blackberries
1 cup plus 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour, divided (about 4 1/2 ounces)
1 cup sugar, divided
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup 1% low-fat milk
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 350°.
Pour 2 tablespoons melted butter into the bottom of a 2-quart dish coated with cooking spray.
Combine peaches, blackberries, and 1 tablespoon flour in a large bowl; toss gently. Add 1/4 cup sugar and ginger; toss gently to combine. Pour peach mixture into prepared baking dish. Lightly spoon remaining 1 cup flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Combine 1 cup flour, remaining 3/4 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk. Add remaining 2 tablespoons melted butter and milk, stirring with a whisk. Pour batter evenly over fruit mixture.
Bake at 350° for 1 hour and 10 minutes or until golden brown.
So simple and very nice for a summer supper desert. Used buttermilk and a full tablespoon of grated fresh ginger. Also added a sprinkle of turbinado sugar on top for visual affect and a bit of crunchy sweetness. Forgot to add the sugar to the fruit or the butter to the bottom of the pan, but we didn't miss it one bit. Great with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped topping.
Have made this a couple of times now. Tonight I served it for Father's Day dessert. I put it in the oven just as we sat down to dinner and by the time we cleared the table the house smelled like fresh peach pie. Tasty and easy to prepare. Will definitely make again.
Don't know that if this is a "fair" rating, because I had another recipe on my mind and grabbed the buttermilk instead of the low fat milk. HOWEVER,everything else was used and the end result was fantastic. I actually think using the buttermilk is what gave the topping more of "fluffy" taste and feel to it. I like the hint of ginger taste that adds a bit of bite to the sweetness of the fruits. Husband loved it and devoured it. The only thing Im ight try differently next time is not pouring the batter so evenly on top of the fruit, to give it a more "cobbler" like appearance. Excellent recipe, simple to throw together yet impressive to share with guests.
i really liked this recipe. there was some leftover batter in the bottom of the mixing bowl, it was so good that i licked it clean. also instead of 1 cup up milk i used 3/4 cups and 1/4 cup of french vanilla creamer. delicious
I made this with fresh black berries from our neighbor and fresh peaches from a stand. I added some vanilla and pumpkin pie spice to the dry mixture. I made it with light soy milk (8th continent) cause that's what we had. It was really good. Served it with cool whip after letting it cool for about 5-10 minutes. Warm, cakey, and delicious. Everyone went for seconds!
