Quick and Easy Cobbler Recipe: When I have a craving for something sweet, for an after dinner treat… this last minute cobbler recipe is my go-to!
What I love so much about this cobbler recipe, is that you have a few different options of which type of “fruit” cobbler to make. I especially love how you can use canned fruit, like canned peaches for a quick and easy peach cobbler recipe.
The day I snagged the photos for this recipe post, I had blackberries in the fridge that needed used. But more on that below. You’ll also find the base ingredients below, and then you can add just about any fruit you prefer!
HELP! Quick Dessert Needed!
So about two months ago, on a weeknight, I was invited over to a friends house for dinner, and I told them I would bring dessert. About an hour before I was due to leave, I realized that I never even made anything to take. Hey… life got away from me, you know?
Anyhoo… I looked in my pantry, and I saw that I had a can of peaches. Winning!
I was able to whip up the peach cobbler in no-time, and head out of the door on time.
Quick and Easy Cobbler Recipe
The following week, my husband invited a business colleague over for dinner at the last minute, and after I smacked my husband for doing that (just kidding), I started getting heart palpitations thinking about how I didn’t have anything made for dessert.
It wasn’t until I pulled myself together, that I remembered how I made that last minute peach cobbler a couple of weeks before.
But to my dismay, I didn’t have any canned peaches. But boy oh boy… I had blackberries in the fridge, that I needed to use PRONTO.
I had bought them at a discount the day before at the produce stand, when I lied to myself saying I was going to go home that evening and whip up something special and miraculous with those blackberries. Yeah… I went home that night, put on my pj’s and watched “Bachelor in Paradise,” instead.)
I whipped those blackberries out of the fridge, tossed together the ingredients to make a last minute cobbler, and by the time we were finished eating with my husbands business colleague, I was servin’ up a blackberry cobbler, and impressin’ the heck out of my husband.
Actually, I recall him saying,
Woah. Well aren’t you Martha Stewart.
After I did my little curtsy, I snuck back in the kitchen and snickered at the awesomeness of how I pulled that one off.
