One of the greatest things about summer time is the fresh seasonal fruit. Something about peaches, blackberries, raspberries and blueberries just make me excited for summer activities and I cannot get enough. I have a tendency to buy too much fruit when I see it on sale and I usually can’t finish it all. What do you do with a ton of extra fruit? Make a cobbler.
Cobbler might be the perfect summer dessert. It’s delicious and fruity, and with ice cream on top it can be filling and refreshing. It is perfect to throw together in no time at all and requires very little work, which is perfect for lazy summer days. This cobbler is a simple, old Southern recipe passed down from my grandma and modified by myself. It requires only a few cheap ingredients, making this a great any time dessert.
The best thing about cobbler is that it is very versatile. You can use any combination of fruit you like and can experiment with the ingredients. Try using almond or coconut flour, coconut sugar or erythritol, almond milk or grass fed whole milk. Experiment with it to suit your taste or diet. This recipe is very easy to make your own so have fun with it!
