Cakery Friday: Peachberry Cobbler in a Jar


Ok, maybe not the most original idea {see here}. But isn’t imitation the highest form of flattery? Although baking in mason jars can get a little messy {think blueberry gooeyness overtaking everything} they are ridiculously delicious and so much fun.

Gather all of the ingredients.


In a small bowl whisk together 1/3 cup of sugar, 1 tablespoon of corn starch, a pinch of cinnamon and a pinch of salt.


Slice up 2 peaches into 1-inch chunks and add to bowl along with a pint of fresh blueberries.



Fold together using a rubber spatula. Finally, fold in 1 teaspoon of lemon zest and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice. Divide into 4 pint sized mason jars.


Bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes {will be bubbly and gooey!}.

Prepare the biscuit crust:

In a large bowl whisk together 1 cup of all-purpose flour, 2 tablespoons cornmeal, 1/4 cup of sugar, and 2 teaspoons baking powder.


In a small bowl combine 4 tablespoons melted butter, 1/3 cup buttermilk, and 2 teaspoons vanilla extract.


Gently fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients.


Remove the mason jars from the oven and top with a large dollop of the biscuit dough. {I hate to admit it, but I think I was probably very cautious during this step, and did not place enough biscuit dough on the top, allowing the blueberry/peach mixture to somewhat overtake my biscuits. Still delicious, but not the most beautiful end product.} ** Before returning the mason jars to the oven, turn temperature to 425 degrees!  Bake for 10-15 minutes, until berries are bubbling and biscuit is golden brown.


Enjoy warm {with a big dollop of ice cream!}
