My neighbor gave me some fresh blackberries from her garden, so I decided to try making a Blackberry Nectarine Cobbler! It was so delicious! I loved the tartness of the fruit with the sweetness of the crumble topping and the creamy whipped cream…Pure Heaven!
I saw a version of this cobbler on the Food Network, during one of the Pioneer Woman episodes. She used blueberries and nectarines, but when my neighbor gave me the blackberries…I just decided to try out those two combinations and as I already said…Pure Heaven! I just made this recipe up and it is a keeper.
- 2 cups fresh blackberries
- 2 cups fresh nectarines-cut up
- 1/3 cup sugar (can add a little more if you prefer)
- 1 heaping Tablespoon cornstarch
- pinch salt
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- pinch salt
- 1/2 cup cold butter (1stick)
- 1/4 cup pecans-chopped
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter 4 individual ramekin dishes. In a bowl combine the nectarines and blackberries. Add the sugar, salt, lemon juice and cornstarch and toss gently. Divide the fruit among the 4 ramekin dishes.
- In a bowl, add the flour, oats, sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt and mix to combine. Cut 3/4 stick of butter into cubes, then cut the butter cubes into the flour mixture using a pastry cutter or 2 knives. Spread the topping over the 4 dishes. Top with the chopped pecans. Cut the remaining 1/4 stick of butter into small cubes and dot the top of the cobbler with it. Place the filled ramekins on a cookie sheet and cover loosely with foil. Bake for 20 minutes. Uncover and continue baking until the top is browned and the fruit is bubbling, 20 to 25 minutes. Let cool a bit before serving.
- These cobblers are great topped with sweetened whipped cream, or a scoop of ice cream!
This is my cobbler before I put them in the oven. (I also added the pecans after I took this picture) These look good enough to eat right now!
You can see the pecans in this picture. They are what really send these blackberry nectarine cobblers over the top! The toasted pecans give this a delicious nuttiness!Do you have any blackberries in your garden, or a farmer’s market near you? You really need to try out this delicious blackberry nectarine cobbler. The taste will have your mouth singing! This is such a refreshing summer treat…I think that I am going to have to go looking for blackberries again!
