We LOVE desserts in this household, and when summer comes, all of the fruits make me so excited to create anything and everything I can during this short season. I had peaches, plums and blueberries in our fridge and I was like…COBBLER!!! Let’s do it!! So here is the recipe I came up with. We loved this summer fruit cobbler and you will too!
Ingredients for summer fruit filling
2 lbs. peaches, peeled, pitted and sliced
1 lb. plums peeled, pitted and sliced
2-3 c. fresh blueberries
2/3 c. packed light brown sugar
1 T. lavender honey
2 tsp. freshly grated ginger
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 c. all-purpose flour
1 2/3 c. flour plus more for rolling out dough
1/4 c. sugar
2 T. baking powder
1/4 tsp. sea salt
6 T. cold, unsalted butter, cut into pieces
2/3 c. buttermilk plus more for basting
Course vanilla sugar for sprinkling biscuits
Preheat oven to 350F. Butter a 11×7 baking dish with butter and set aside.
Toss peaches, plums and blueberries in a bowl with brown sugar, honey, ginger cinnamon and salt. Sprinkle in flour and mix. Place into the baking dish and set aside.
To make the biscuits
Whisk flour, sugar, baking powder and salt together. Cut butter into the mixture with a fork or pastry blender until pea sized. Add the buttermilk and stir until combined. It will look rustic…this is what you want. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead to bring it together…don’t work it too much or the biscuits will be tough. Pat into a 1/4 inch round and cut out biscuits with a 2 inch cutter, rerolling the scraps until you get 8 biscuits.
Arrange biscuits on top of the filling. Brush with buttermilk and sprinkle with vanilla sugar. Bake until biscuits are golden and the filling bubbles, 45-50 minutes. Cool on a wire rack and serve with ice cream or by itself.
Have a Great weekend!
