Summer Cobbler


It’s just not Summer until you fix your first peach cobbler! This week I made two! My husband loved the peach and cherry cobbler and Belle, my sous-chef, championed our peach and blueberry rendition. May I remind you that I am untrained in flour, pastry and sugar! However, this gypsy baker has a winner on her hands, a recipe that even the gluten-free will be singing about! 

Summer Cobbler

2 cups of peeled and cut peaches (The Georgia Peach Truck is making its rounds around Nashville! Go to for locations!)

1 1/2 cups of fresh cherries or blueberries

1 cup of oat flour

1/2 cup of almond meal

1 1/2 cups of Turbinado sugar

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp Kosher salt

1 tsp vanilla

1 1/2 cups of oats

1/2 stick to 1 stick of butter (I use the salted Kerry Gold Irish butter) cut up into bite-size chunks

cobbler butter

Combine dry ingredients in one bowl. Cover the bottom of baking dish with your fruit mixture. You may include 1/4 cup of sugar if the fruit is not sweet and the zest of an orange to jazz it up. Cover the fruit with the dry mixture. I only used half of the dry ingredients for the first cobbler and then saved the rest in a ziplock bag for the second cobbler. Next, decorate the top with your chunks of butter. Place in oven on 400 degrees for 1 hour. We served the cobbler with vanilla and almond gelato.


Bon Appétit,
