I have tried about 100 different cobbler recipes. And I have always found them lacking. It’s too much of a biscuit topping, dry and crumbly, it’s too cakey, it’s too dense, it’s not flavorful enough…I’ve eaten them all!
This. This is the one. The one that wins. Flakey, with a bit of a crust, yet moist and delicious. Yum, yum!
Let the sweet adventure begin!
Start with 2 cups fresh peaches, peeled and sliced, plus 2 cups fresh blueberries in an 8 x 8 inch pan.
Combine 3/4 cup of white sugar,
1 cup all-purpose flour,
1 teaspoon baking powder,
and 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt in a large bowl.
Add 1/2 cup whole milk and
4 tablespoons salted butter, melted, to the dry ingredients and combine together with spatula.
Pour over the fruit.
Spread with spatula,
for even coverage!
Next, in a small bowl, combine 1/4 cup sugar, 1 tablespoon cornstarch and 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt.
Sprinkle this mixture evenly over the batter.
Evenly pour 1/2 cup of boiling water over the entire surface of the pan.
Bake in preheated 325 degree oven for about 50 minutes, until golden brown
and bubbly! Cool on wire rack. Serve warm or at room temperature with your favorite ice cream!
Bon Appétit, Ma Chérie!
