This easy peach and blackberry cobbler tastes heavenly when served warm topped with vanilla ice cream.  It’s comfort food at its finest. 

Peach and Blackberry Cobbler

A cobbler makes the best dessert.  

It’s easy to make, colorful and tastes wonderful especially when served warm with vanilla ice cream.

As the ice cream slowly melts over the cobbler it makes each bite taste so good.

In this recipe, I left the skin on the peaches because it adds such a pretty color to the dessert especially with the contrast of the dark blackberries.

The crust on this cobbler reminds me of the taste and texture of pastry.  It’s light with a touch of sweetness to it.

And I like to use fresh peaches and fresh blackberries for this recipe because they seem to hold their shape better than the frozen peaches and blackberries do.

My favorite way of eating this delicious dessert is to get a little piece of the crust in every bite, oh and the vanilla ice cream in each bite too, along with the fruit filling of course.

TIP –  Make sure the fruit filling doesn’t go all the way to the top of the dish.  

It should be about a 1/2-inch from the top of the baking dish to allow room for the topping to rise.

Add batter on cobbler

On top of the fruit filling, evenly spread the topping.

TIP – Leave some areas of fruit without batter (this helps prevent “steam” from making the batter soggy).

Blackberry and Peach Cobbler

TIP – On the rack in the oven under where the cobbler will set, place a large pizza or sheet pan (large enough to catch drippings) (just in case some of the filling may bubble over the edge of the baking dish while in the oven).

Bake the cobbler in a preheated oven (at 350 F.) until the crust is golden brown on top and the filling is bubbling (about 52 to 55 minutes).
