For the Fruit

  • 8 ripe peaches
  • 1 1/2 cups blackberries
  • 1 tablespoon all purpose flour
  • 1-2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar

For the Cobbler Topping

  • 1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 6 tablespoons butter chilled
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • vanilla ice cream to serve


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Using a sharp knife, cut a small cross hatch at the bottom of the peaches. Bring a large pot of water to a boil on the stove. Add the peaches into the boiling water, a few at a time, and let cook for 45 seconds. Remove with a slotted spoon and set aside to cool. Repeat with remaining peaches. Once peaches have cooled enough to hold, peel off the skins and then cut them up into slices, discarding the pit.
  • Transfer sliced peaches to a large bowl. Add the blackberries, flour, lemon juice and zest, salt and brown sugar and toss together. Transfer fruit mixture into a large baking dish and transfer into the oven, bake for 10 minutes and remove.
  • Prepare the biscuit dough by combining the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt in a medium bowl. Cut in the chilled butter with a pastry cutter. Mix in the egg, buttermilk and vanilla and set aside. Pile the topping onto the partially cooked fruit mixture using a spoon and randomly drop scoops along the surface of the cobbler.
  • Place the dish into the oven and bake for about 30 minutes until the top is slightly puffed and golden brown. Let cool for about 10 minutes before serving. Serve with vanilla ice cream.
