Peach and Blueberry Cobbler

This sweet and juicy peach and blueberry cobbler is made entirely from scratch and is the perfect simple summer dessert.

If you’ve never made a cobbler before, there are a couple of different ways to make it. One common version has fruit on the bottom, and a biscuit topping. Other versions use a store bought yellow cake mix.

They’re all great, but my very FAVORITE version – this one obviously – is made with a simple batter that goes on the bottom and rises to the top as the cobbler bakes with the ripe, juicy fruit. A crunchy, caramelized brown sugar crust tops it perfectly.

It’s 100% homemade, 100% EASY, and 100% delicious!

While cobblers are usually made with one fruit only (most often peaches), I love to throw some blueberries into the mix. The peaches get super tender, but still hold their shape, while the blueberries melt into jammy puddles. Soooooo good. (Don’t forget the scoop of vanilla ice cream ;)).

I will say that if you bake a lot, this recipe is probably going to seem a bit strange when you make it. You’ll probably wonder if you misread things when you start pouring the super thin batter into a pan of melted butter.

Don’t worry, it totally works, I promise!

Here’s a step-by-step with photos, so you can see what it looks like to assemble this cobbler.

Peach and Blueberry Cobbler Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Place the cubed butter in a 3 quart (9 x 13 inch) baking dish or pan and put it in the oven for about 5 minutes to melt.

While the butter is melting in the oven, make the batter.

2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt.

3. Add the milk and vanilla extract.

4. Stir until smooth. The batter will be very thin.

5. Pour the batter evenly over the melted butter. The batter will sink to the bottom, and the butter will rise to the top.

6. Stir together the peach slices, blueberries, and 2 teaspoons of fresh lemon juice.

7. Spread the fruit evenly over the butter/batter.

8. Sprinkle everything with 1/2 cup of brown sugar.

9. Bake until the top is golden and it no longer jiggles when you shake the pan a bit, about 40-50 minutes.

Let it cool for a 15 minutes or so and serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Can I use canned or frozen peaches and blueberries?

Yes, you can. If using frozen fruit, thaw the peaches first, but use the blueberries frozen. Thawed blueberries get super juicy and make everything purple!

If using canned peaches, be sure to drain them well.

    I made this recently and LOVED it. I love a little spice with my fruit so I added a few shakes of ground cinnamon and ground ginger to the fruit, added some smashed ginger snap cookies to the brown sugar, and grated a little lemon zest on top. It didn’t last long enough to take a picture! Thank you for this easy and delicious recipe!

    My husband loves a good cobbler and asked me to try this recipe. Since it’s just the two of us, I cut the recipe in half using peaches, blackberries and he asked me to include some strawberries. While preparing the fruit, I inadvertently tossed everything in the brown sugar (my mistake) but still sprinkled brown sugar on top as the recipe instructed – it was not too sweet. He absolutely raved about this cobbler saying it was the best cobbler he has eaten!! Recipe is a keeper and will definitely make it again!

        The ONLY thing I would change is not adding so much granulated sugar. Next time I would cut that down to about 3/4 cups instead of 1 1/2.
        Other than that slight change this was AMAZING. I have to hide it from myself so I won’t eat the whole pan.

    This was so incredible. I ended up putting in some strawberries since I had some fruit I needed to use. It was so buttery. I reminded me of the cobblers that my mother used to make. Thank you for this recipe.

      This was delicious and very easy to make. I cut the sugar in the batter to 1 cup to suit our tastes, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly with fresh peaches and blueberries. Turned out perfectly and I can’t wait to make it again.

    This was the BEST cobbler I’ve ever made! It is so good you don’t need to add the ice cream. I followed the recipe to a T and I can’t say enough about how delicious this is. Thanks for sharing!

    This is my new go-to cobbler! I made this as written — the peach/blueberry combo is YUM .. this was a perfect dessert not overly sweet or sugary like some cobblers can be .. and its easy to make

    Bubbled over the baking dish and created a huge mess in the oven 🙁 also appears very undercooked but my fruit was browned on top and the edges of the cobbler were crispy. The taste would probably have been delicious only it is raw as I try enjoying it for lunch today. subbed coconut oil instead of butter. seems very oily and I wonder if the amount of butter called for in this recipe kept it from cooking properly.

      I would recommend trying the recipe as it’s written with the butter. Butter and coconut oil can behave very differently in a baked dish. Sorry it didn’t work for you.

      A 3-star review of a modified recipe seems ill-thought. Jen, you ought to remove your review and repost when you make the dish according to the recipe. Just sayin’. 🙂 I made this dessert per the recipe and it is fantastic.

    Delicious! I cut the amount of sugar in the batter to 1/2 cup as my fruit was already sweet. A home run … I will be making this again!

    Neighbor gave us some fresh peaches and daughter bought some local blueberries and voila…a delicious cobbler I will make again for company some day. We used cookie tin under glass dish as batter filled to top. Glad I did since it spilled over some. May have had more fruit than recipe called for as gauged it by looks (love fruit so didn’t mind extra). Might cut back bit on white sugar next time but it was not overly sweet. Thanks for the simple recipe!

    This was good! I didn’t have brown sugar for the topping, but didn’t realize it until I had assembled the entire dish and it was ready for the oven. It lacked the crunchy, browned topping, but it was still delicious. I will try it again with the brown sugar!
    Thank you!
