One of my all time favorite things about summer is the abundance of fresh fruit. And my favorite thing to do with said fruit? Cobblers, of course!
Now, peach cobbler is my ultimate favorite. It’s quite possibly my favorite dessert in the history of ever. But sadly it’s not always all about me, and it turns out not everyone likes peaches (gasp!).
I decided to use the fresh strawberries and blueberries I already had, but you could easily substitute any fruit in this recipe, fresh or frozen. I love the versatility of it! Raspberries, blackberries, peaches, rhubarb even…any combination you could think of.
What also makes this recipe so simple is the cobbler mix. I used the Louisiana Fish Fry Fruit Cobbler Mix, which is sold in stores here in Louisiana, but you can always buy it online if you can’t find it where you live.
You’ll first melt some butter in the bottom of your dish, pour in the cobbler batter, then top with your fruit. You read that right…the fruit goes in last. I was a little wary of this, as my usual cobblers have the crust on top, but as this cobbler bakes the batter rises up and ends up almost completely covering the fruit. See? Easy as pie! Well…cobbler.
As with all our favorite desserts, this pairs perfectly with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream, especially on a hot summer day. Speaking of hot summer days…do you need a 4th of July BBQ dish?? If so, I think you just found the perfect one. It’s even patriotic colors!
