Black Raspberry Peach Cobbler

Black Raspberry Peach Cobbler

This recipe from makes 6 individual 6” cobblers or one medium cobbler. You can half the recipe using ½ pint of black raspberries, or increase the peaches or substitute the fruit differential with most fresh berries. Using gelatin or cornflower will thicken the fruit juices (if using the cornflower you should use two tablespoons and mix it with the fruit before filling the baking dish).


  • 1 pint black raspberries
  • 4-5 ripe peaches (or 4 cups of chopped peaches- slightly more if you are working with less berries)
  • 1 vanilla bean pod
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon zest
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 sachet of gelatin
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 stick cubed chilled butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar for sprinkling on top of the cobblers
  • 6 individual sized baking dishes (about 4 to 6 inches in diameter)


Preheat the oven to 350F. Peel the peaches and slice each of them in half to remove the pit at the center. Cut the peaches into large 1 inch thick pieces. In a mixing bowl, mix together the black raspberries, peaches, sugar, lemon juice, lemon zest, and gelatin. Carefully scrape the vanilla seeds out of the pod and fold the seeds into the fruit mixture. Cover the bowl with a lid or cling film and let it rest in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes. In another mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, 1/4 cup brown sugar, butter, kosher salt, and baking powder.  Keep aside. Place the baking dishes in a baking tray. Scoop around 3/4 cup of the fruit mixture into each baking dish. Sprinkle 1/4 cup of the dry flour mix on top of the fruit in each dish. Randomly spread about 1 tablespoon of the chopped butter over the flour mixture. Bake the cobblers in the baking tray for about 45 minutes or till the crust is golden and crisp. Let them cool for 5 minutes outside the oven. Serve hot or warm with/without vanilla ice cream.
