Blackberry Peach Cobbler combines sweet peaches and tart blackberries into a crave-worthy cobbler that’s a summer favorite!
Peach cobbler has been around for ages. I’ve had many versions from those made with canned peaches and cake mix to far more elaborate ones with fresh peaches and homemade pastry. And, really, they’re all good.
This Blackberry Peach Cobbler is a nice middle ground between easy and complicated. There’s more effort involved than the cake mix cobbler versions, but it all comes together quickly.
The addition of blackberries is a fantastic variation. They add a bit of tartness that goes perfectly with the always super sweet peaches. A little bourbon mixed with the peaches gives them a smoky sweetness. Such amazing flavors!
One of my favorite parts of this cobbler is the topping. Remember those Glazed Pecans I shared with you recently? Well, I am happy to tell you that they get mixed into the topping for a bit of sweet crunch. Apparently, you can buy glazed pecans, although I don’t remember seeing them around here. In any case, they’re quite simple to make yourself.
Even though you’ll only need about a cup of pecans for the cobbler, go ahead and make the full batch. You can use some for garnish when you serve the cobbler. Or, you know, you could just eat them. That definitely works, too.
This cobbler is a bit thicker and, well, sturdier than most cobblers. You can easily cut it into squares instead of just scooping it. It’s still nice and gooey, which is the whole point of a cobbler, right? Ice cream is a traditional cobbler topping, and you can’t go wrong pairing it with this cobbler. But I highly recommend a dollop of vanilla bean whipped cream. So, so good.
