Blueberry Peach Cobbler Recipe

blueberry peach cobbler

This is an easy dessert that lets me indulge in two delicious summer fruits – peaches and blueberries. The two combine beautifully in this delicious cobbler, or pudding cake as some might call it. Eaten right out of the oven drizzled with fresh cream, every bite tastes like a warm August afternoon.

The recipe can be adapted for any fruit or fruit combination and of course, you can serve it with ice cream too.

      Hi Bonnie, As you discovered, the lemon zest can go in anytime. I have since updated the recipe. Sorry about the omission.

    I made the cobbler, but found it too heavy for a summer dessert. Also the molasses overpowered the fruit. Sounded better than it tastes.

    Is there anything that could be used as a substitute for the cornstarch?

    Thanks and Many Blessings,

      Hi Caitlyn, Since the cornstarch is just used to thicken the mixture you could substitute arrowroot powder or flour.
