Peach Blueberry Cobbler Recipe
It’s truly a scrumptious treat! If you’re taking it to a party, you might want take it unbaked (skip the last step of pouring the boiling water over the mixture), and then do that step right before putting in the oven. Or, if you are a cake lover, try this “Making Peach Upside Down Cake for Dinner Guests” recipe!
Delegating is easy!
Friends, opening our homes is not always comfortable. It takes effort, time, and money to host. But we have found these days that people do not expect formal or elaborate meals. In fact, for years on my blog, I’ve encouraged bringing people together over a potluck, where everyone contributes to the meal.
This is a way more affordable approach to entertaining.
How about for the 4th of July delegating most of the dishes, and then make the main dish and dessert?
Ingredients for Peach Blueberry Cobbler
Make ahead, or pop in the oven an hour before guests arrive, and serve a hot Peach Blueberry Cobbler that everyone loves. Here are the ingredients you will need:
- Large peaches and fresh blueberries (or frozen)
- Butter and milk
- Sugar and flour and cornstarch
- Salt and baking powder
- Vanilla and almond extract
Oh, and the secret ingredient? Almond extract! Of course you can make this recipe without it, but for my favorite taste, I love the almond spin.
I was so happy to find peaches at Costco. Let them sit on the counter for a couple of days, and then they will be perfect for this juicy cobbler.
Blueberries and peaches go so well together.
Of course we love a good old-fashioned cobbler recipe, and this is a fruit cobbler recipe super easy for summer entertaining.
QUICK TIIP: Place a sheet pan under the baking dish while in the oven. It tends to bubble over a bit during baking. No one wants a baked on blueberry mess to clean up!

Make a summer dinner invite
If the table on your back deck is unused, or your formal dining room table is staring you in the face, I think it’s time to make an invite!
For us, summer entertaining is easy. We’ve forged a new way of serving food in our home, where everyone dishes up their own plate. Set it out, they will come. We’ve all heard that saying.
Hosting is not for the faint of heart
We’ve found that sometimes more casual makes everyone feel a little more at ease. Bringing people together is not for the faint of heart. I’ve offered tools and tips here on my blog for fourteen years now, and the benefits of getting over our fears and reaching out to others. Bottom line, people need people. The true gut-level connections that we are seeking are often best achieved over a meal with others. [Above, so fun to host RecipeGirl and her hubby here a few weeks ago!]
Food is the catalyst that brings us together, and I feel honored that little old me, in Bend, Oregon, can be used in a way that is deep, raw, and real when we bring people together.
So this weekend coming up, what dessert will you serve?
Start with an all dessert night—that is easy!
