Peaches with fresh blueberries cobbler is just peachy. The title says it is peach, the recipe calls for peaches, but you don’t see any peaches in the pictures. What’s with that? The peaches are masquerading as a blueberry sauce. I have a confession. I let the peaches get over-ripe to the point that cooking resulted in instant peach purée. I am not one to waste a delicious kettle of peaches and blueberries. I continued with the recipe, and I am delighted with the result.
For another peach of a cobbler make my Blueberry and Peach Cobbler Topped with Scones.
The peach purée gives a wonderful peach flavor to the cobbler. Even though you don’t see the peaches, you can smell, and taste the peaches. Even if the peaches aren’t ripe enough to spontaneously purée themselves, they will also be delicious and identifiable as peaches in the cobbler. However, if you like the look of my cobbler go ahead and purée your peaches before you add the blueberries.
This Peaches with Fresh Blueberries Cobbler is a southern style cobbler. Melt butter in the bottom of the pan, add cake batter to the melted butter and spoon the thickened fruit on top of the cake batter. The final baked cobbler has islands of fruit-juices-soaked-cake in a sea of peaches and blueberries.
