Last weekend we went to a pick your own fruit orchard and came home with 20 pounds of peaches. Yum.
Sunday night I whipped together a fast cobbler, which I've never made before, and it meets the fresh produce theme of this week's challenge, so while it's a bit of a cheater (bisquick!), it definitely counts.
Peach Blueberry Cobbler
2-1/2 pounds peachs, peeled, cored, and sliced (or 2.5 pounds frozen peach slices, thawed)
1 pint blueberries
1/3 cup sugar
3 Tablespoons cornstarch
1 Tablespoon each fresh grated lemon zest and juice
Heat oven to 400. In bowl, combine peaches, blueberries, sugar, cornstarch, lemon zest and juice, pour into 11 X 7 baking dish coated with cooking spray.
For topping, combine 2 cups baking mix (bisquick) with 1/2 cup milk. Drop over fruit and sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon sugar.
Bake til bubbly and topping is lightly browned and bicuit-y.
Was the recipe easy to follow?
Easy and fast. Peeling peaches is a pain, there's no denying it, but the payoff is worth it. And bisquick - what can I say? There's a "heart-healthy"or something version with no transfats, and it just makes life easier. It just does (waffles, pancakes, biscuits - in a flash). So take away my authentic cook label. I don't care. I can make homemade, but sometimes easy is, well, easy.
Did it taste good?
It did, though I think the zest made it too tart. You add lemon juice to peaches because they brown easily, and to cut the sweetness a bit. But still, it was a tad tarter than I wanted. We also didn't have vanilla ice cream or even cream, which might have countered the tart. I'd leave out the zest next time, I don't even think I did a full tablespoon. But it's proven to be a very nice breakfast option this week!
Oddly, she won't eat it. Dunno why. Totally rejected. Maybe too goopy.
Would I make it again?
