End of Summer Peach Apple Cobbler

Last weekend, I bought my last basket of Ontario peaches from the farmer’s market. From here on out, things like pears, apples, figs, grapes, beets, pumpkins, carrots, squash, and potatoes make their seasonal debut.

But first, I wanted to make a farewell summer recipe using fresh peaches, a couple of the season’s first apples, and an easy gluten-free biscuit topping. I figured, it would make the end of summer a bit less bitter and a bit more sweet!

Have you ever made a cobbler recipe before?

This was my first time making a cobbler and I expected it to be a lot more difficult than it was. It was actually super easy to make, but it still looks like you spent hours baking it.

A cobbler has a base of gently cooked fruit with a lightly sweetened biscuit topping. It’s the perfect recipe to make when you don’t have the time or energy to make a pie from scratch, but still want a show stopper dessert. I actually think I might like this recipe better than a traditional pie! There is just something about the sweet, fluffy biscuit topping that lured me back for more and more. Even Eric who isn’t normally a “cooked fruit fan” absolutely loved this cobbler.

Just like a pie, you can pretty much use any fruit and have great success. You can’t go wrong if you use what’s in season as seasonal fruit is usually sweeter and you won’t have to add much sweetener to the cobbler.

I thought local peaches and apples were a perfect pairing for the last week of summer!

I sliced 5 cups of peaches and 3 cups of apples- no need to remove the skin.

Then, all you do is mix together the base ingredients made up of arrowroot powder (or cornstarch), Sucanat (or other dry sugar), cinnamon, sliced fruit, water, and vanilla. Bring it to a boil and cook for 1-2 minutes.

Now you have gently cooked fruit in a light syrup!

Spread into a greased casserole dish (or a very large pie dish like I did).

I loved the oat and almond flour combination so much in my gluten-free chocolate chip cookies, I decided to make a gluten-free biscuit using the same flours. I only added 1/4 cup of almond flour, but it resulted in a sweet and nutty batter. I probably could have eaten this batter on its own and called it a day…it turned out incredible! The best part is that it comes together in just a couple minutes.

If you don’t have almond flour, not to worry. You can simply process whole almonds into a fine flour in your blender or processor. Or you can use whatever flour you want and I’m sure it will turn out as well.

Because the consistency of the batter is quite drippy (think porridge), it is easily spooned on top of the fruit mixture. I added about 6 large spoonful’s, as I wanted it to serve 6 people, but it doesn’t really matter how you spread it on. For a crunchy topping, I sprinkled it with Sucanat before baking.

Now bake for 25-30 minutes and serve immediately. Easy as pie cobbler!

I served it in mini waffle bowls (President’s Choice brand if I remember correctly) along with some vegan ice cream.

A sprinkle of toasted almonds really took it over the top and added the perfect crunch!

Summer, it’s been a slice.

This looks so rustic and delicious! I can’t believe I’ve never thought to combine apples and peaches in cobblers – I do it with berries all the time. Can’t wait to try it out!

Faith @ For the Health of It September 19, 2011

Cobblers are my all time favorite dessert (yep, even over chocolate!!!) but I’ve never tried to make one on my own. I can’t wait to try this – gotta do it quickly before peaches are too hard to find!

This looks delicious Angela! And I love that you used those waffle bowls. What a great end-of-summer dessert (or breakfast?)

I love that you merged summer and fall but using both peaches and apples, delicious!

Amy B September 19, 2011

Wow that looks amazing!! Could you use Stevia instead of sucanat/White sugar/brown sugar?

Reply

Angela (Oh She Glows) September 19, 2011

Hi Amy, I’m not sure as I have never made anything with stevia before. I can’t see why not!

Reply

Beth September 19, 2011

I use pure, powdered stevia often. You could definitely use a bit in the fruit. For the cobbler topping, I’d probably add the stevia as well as applesauce to replace the amount of sugar called for in the recipe. This will add bulk and moisture you would otherwise lose if you used only stevia. And definitely don’t sprinkle it on the top :D That would not taste good :D

Yum! I’ve been doing fun things with peaches this year. I will miss them.

Maria September 19, 2011

Yum that looks amazing. I never really understood the difference between a crumble and a cobbler, but it seems the cobbler has a more biscuit like topping. Apples and peaches sound like the perfect combination too.

Long gone are the days when I had to decide between apples and peaches! Now I can have the best of both worlds :D

Judy September 19, 2011

Looks delicious! I love making cobblers and crisps – they are so much easier than pie (even if pie is easy!). And unlike your hubby, I love cooked hot fruit, probably more than raw fruit. Great idea for using waffle bowls too.

You’ve probably answered this before, but are you completely self-taught with your photography? It blows me away every single time.

Aw thank you! I’m self taught- a bit of research online and just lots of practice every day. I have a lot to learn and would love to take some courses at some point.

SUPER cute waffle bowls Ange!! You and Jenna are the cobbler queens this morning, and both of you are making me super hungry! The fall produce is making its way into my kitchen now as well… pumpkin and butternut squash are already in the rotation and I think my hands are getting more orange by the day!! LOL. Hope you had a wonderful weekend! :)

By the way, I hope you’re proud of the apple/peaches being washed pic because that is just gorgeous!!

As much as I hate the fact that summer is over, we’re heading into cobbler, stew and pumpkin weather!

Another great recipe!

being of hillbilly descent, cobbler is #1 in my repertoire of desserts. So easy, so delicious. Also, it can be made a day in advance. Yay for easy.

What a great recipe to say farewell to fresh peaches for yet another season! I just picked up some local apples over the weekend and I was planning to make an apple crisp. I think I might use your filling instead!

YAY almond flour!! I’m also not a cooked fruit fan, but in a waffle bowl with a scoop of ice cream. I’m there! :) Is it weird that my baked goods are turning out better with gluten-free flours, than with wheat flour? I am liking them so much more!

Reply

Angela (Oh She Glows) September 19, 2011

I’m blown away by how good oat and almond flours taste! Way better than wheat flours, even spelt, which I find is the best tasting flour I’ve baked with.

The end of peach season always makes me so sad. There’s nothing like a juicy peach in summer, you know? BUT, I do love a good cobbler – I’ve never tried mixing apples with my peaches before! Sounds interesting.

vegirl September 19, 2011

I love the bowls! And such a gorgeous dish you baked the cobbler in. I love that time of year when summer produce and fall produce mingle. We were able to get peaches, kabocha squash, apples, and plums at the farmers market all at the same time!

This is the perfect season transition dish. I made individual blackberry cobblers this summer for the first time after visiting big bend national park. Cobblers always remind me of rustic cabins in the woods and hiking trips. I can’t wait to give this one a try.

I’ve never heard of cobbler before but it looks as though I have been missing out BIG time :-)
