Summer's Treat: Peach and Blueberry Cobbler Recipe

Just five blocks away from my apartment is the Columbus Avenue Farmer's Market (or Greenmarket). Every Sunday, vendors line up with their produce, meats, flowers, wines, etc. to sell. Right now, it's a great time to go because of summer and the abundance of fresh produce. One of my favorites being peaches.

We probably spent close to $40 but stocked up on corn, peaches (obviously), cucumbers, basil, pickles, spices, tomatoes, blueberries and even a cute little fern for my side table. I will post photos this week.

Because I love all things sweet, I found this cobbler recipe and decided to test it out last night. It was delicious and so easy to make! While I have yet to master the art of taking a food photo, you'll have to trust me that it was tasty.

Below is the recipe in case you want to try it yourself. I swapped out canned peaches for the fresh ones.


1 can (12-14 oz.) peach slices
1 cup (8 oz.) Sprite
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt (optional)
4 Tbsp. light butter, softened

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Arrange the peach slices in a single layer in the 9-inch round glass baking dish. Set aside.
In a medium mixing bowl whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder and baking soda and (optional) salt. Using a fork, incorporate softened light butter to the flour mixture, until it is crumbly.
Sprinkle crumbly flour mixture over the layer of peach slices. Slowly pour the lemon lime soda pop evenly over the peach slices and flour topping mixture. Bake about 40-45 minutes. Let cool about 10-15 minutes before serving 8 servings with a large serving spoon.
