Blueberry nectarine cobbler

Nectarine Blueberry Cobbler Recipe

Jeremy loves blueberries, and I love nectarines. While I was shopping at ALDI a week or so ago, I found both fruits for a very good price. We ate what we wanted from the abundance that I purchased, and I decided to bake with the rest. When I mentioned that I was making a Nectarine Blueberry Cobbler, Jeremy gave me his usual befuddled stare. He prefers traditional recipes instead my “experiments”. Jeremy was drawn into the kitchen by the aroma of the bubbling cobbler. When we were finished eating, he said this Nectarine Blueberry Cobbler was one of his favorites. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as my Jeremy.

I’ve started making most of my cobbler recipes using an old fashioned method. I don’t mix the sugar or water into the batter. I sprinkle sugar across the batter and fruit, and pour my water across the top. It gives the top a lightly crispy crunch with a bit of sweetness.

I leave the peels on my nectarines, because I eat them with the peel on. They nearly disintegrate while baking, but you can peel them if you life.

The moisture cooks out of the blueberries and creates a thick fruity syrup that coats the nectarines. I have to agree with Jeremy that this one of my favorite cobbler recipes, and it’s very easy to throw together.
