Peach and Pluot Cobbler

By Cedar | September 6, 2011

Last week I posted an Instagram photo of the peach and fig cobbler I made and got a request for the recipe. Quite honestly I can’t remember exactly what I did, so I thought I would share the basic peach cobbler recipe I use. I didn’t have quite enough peaches for the entire dish this week so I threw in some pluots (a cross between a plum and an apricot, for those wondering), kind of like I threw in the figs last week. It really works well with just about any fruit. Apples, berries, or any stone fruit would be delicious in place of the peaches. I absolutely love making cobbler because it is so simple to make, really the hardest part is cutting up the fruit. You really can get creative with this one.

  • 8 fresh peaches (you can peel them, but honestly I can’t be bothered)
  • 1/4 cup white sugae
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch (more if fruit is especially juicy)


  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1/4 cup water


  • 3 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon


1. Preheat oven to 425°F. In a large bowl combine fruit, white sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon juice, and cornstarch. Toss and pour into a 2 quart baking dish. Bake ten minutes.

2. In a large bowl combine flour, white sugar, brown sugar,  baking powder, and salt. With a pastry cutter cut in butter until texture is about the size of peas. Stir in water until just combined.

3. Remove peaches from oven, drop flour mixture over the top. Sprinkle with sugar/cinnamon mix. Return to oven and bake for 30 minutes. Serve hot or cold with vanilla ice cream. (Sorry, don’t have any pictures of it being served, we brought it to a BBQ)


I apologize for the quality of the pictures. I am still without camera and have to rely on my iPhone for all my photos. I am thinking about trying to sell some of my vintage in order to raise money for a new camera. I haven’t decided yet, but would that be too annoying to see blog updates on vintage for sale in an etsy shop?
