Raspberry Peach Cobbler
Summer evenings are all about relaxing on the patio, listening to the whir of the sprinklers, and indulging in light, tasty desserts made with fresh fruits of the season. This Raspberry Peach Cobbler is the perfect way to use those fresh peaches and raspberries that are abundant in late summer and early fall. The sweet, ripe fruit paired with light, fluffy cake is one of those flavor combinations that can’t be beat! It reminds me of summer picnics, lake trips and family reunions. It’s much more than a dessert; it’s tradition, it’s family time, it’s summer perfection! If you’re looking for a simple dessert to wow your family and friends this summer, give this recipe a try. You will love it!
Fresh or Frozen Fruit?
I always opt for fresh peaches and raspberries if they’re in season and available in my area. Many times friends and neighbors have more fruit than they can use, and I count myself a lucky beneficiary of that goodness. However, if you aren’t able to get your hands on fresh fruit, frozen peaches and raspberries are the next best thing. Canned peaches will also work in a pinch. You really can make this dessert all year long. It just reminds me so much of summertime, that’s usually when I remember to make this dessert. You don’t even need to thaw the fruit; just toss it in as directed in the recipe card below.
How do you Blanch Peaches?
When using fresh peaches, make sure to blanch them and peel them before slicing them into the cobbler. Blanching peaches makes them easy to peel and if you are working with peaches that aren’t quite ripe, blanching will improve the flavor. To blanch peaches, place peaches in a large pot of boiling water. If the peaches are ripe, only leave them in the boiling water for about 40-45 seconds. If the peaches are not quite ripe, leave them in the boiling water for one minute. Any longer than the recommended time in the boiling water, and the peaches will start to cook. In this recipe, that doesn’t do much harm since the peaches are going to be cooked anyway, but they will start to soften up enough that they become more difficult to peel.
More Cobbler Combinations
This recipe is so wonderful because of its versatility. You can be creative and try different combinations of fruit, Jell-O flavors, and cake mix flavors. I love the aroma in my house when I make this dessert as well – who needs a candle when something yummy is baking in the oven! Try fresh cherries, blackberries or apricots with lemon, strawberry or peach Jell-O. Whatever you like or have on hand, try it in this cake. I have never met a cake cobbler I didn’t like.
