The really cool part about this recipe is watching it bake, when you assemble the cobbler, the batter goes in the bottom of the pan and you spoon the fruit over the top but as it bakes, the batter rises to the top and the fruit forms delicious rivers of syrupy goodness over the top.
1/2 cup unsalted butter
2 T water
1 T vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 cups milk
In a saucepan, combine peaches, blueberries, water, vanilla extract, and 1 cup sugar. Stir gently to combine and bring to a boil, simmer for approximately 10 minutes and remove from heat.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Add butter to a 9x13 pan or 3 qt baking dish and place in the oven until melted. Meanwhile, combine remaining sugar, flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and milk in a small mixing bowl and whisk until well combined and mostly smooth. Pour batter over the melted butter but do not stir. Gently spoon fruit over the batter and pour in any syrup.
Bake 30-45 minutes until golden brown. The batter will rise to the top during baking forming the traditional cobbler crust over the fruit. Top with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream if desired when serving.
