Peach Blackberry Cobbler

"This is great for a large family group or church dinner during peach season. The rest of the year canned peaches are fine, but, of course, fresh is best. As we say, 'Jersey Fresh!'" -Marguerite Shaeffer of Sewell, New Jersey

    Very tasty! I added some water to my berries since we like a juicy filling. The cake like topping was delicious! A pretty different cobbler, it's a keeper!

    I made this recipe for the first time last summer using peaches that were almost over ripe and substituting blueberries for the blackberries. It was phenomenal! Took it to a church function and the pan came back almost licked clean!

    Delicious! I enjoyed the recipe as written. It was my first time peeling fresh peaches, and even with blanching them it was a lot of work. It says that canned can be substituted, but how many cups/cans would that be?

    I always have frozen peaches & Blackberries on hand and this cobbler is a delicious way to use the fruit. We like it warm topped with vanilla ice cream! One of our family favorites!!

    I just made this for a gathering. It was delicious! I altered the honey with 3/4 c. Splenda with the fruit and used 1/2 c. Splenda for the batter. I also reduced to 2T lemon juice. Be sure to watch time for the topping to be completely cooked. I had never used buttermilk before, it was SO good!

    This was good given my husband doesn't care for peaches or buttermilk, and he liked it. However, it was a bit tart. When I was making it I thought 3T of lemon juice sounded like a lot so if I make it again I will try it with less. Also, it would be helpful if the peaches could be given in cups, as I only had small ones which made it tricky to get the correct amount.
