Simply Healthy Family: Lazy Black Berry-Peach 'Pie'


Lazy Black Berry-Peach 'Pie'

It pains me to finally get around to posting this recipe at the very end of summer. I hope it doesn't get skipped over by people who are over seeing peach recipes. My mom made this for us a couple of times while she was living here with us and I've made it twice with the intent of getting some great pic's of the finished product so I can share it with all of you. Unfortunately, this is one of those recipes that doesn't last long enough for me to set it on the counter and take pictures of it.

I could blame it completely on my 4 hungry children but in all honesty, the smell is just so divine that I can't help but scoop out seeping hot spoonfuls of freshly baked peaches and oozy blackberries into my dish as soon as it's out of the oven.

My mom's recipe calls this "Lazy Peach Pie" but it's really more of a cobbler I think. Whatever you call it, the preparation is so crazy simple that even I don't mind baking it for a last minute delicious dessert. Even though peaches are a summer fruit, you can really stick to the theme of being 'Lazy' and buy frozen or even canned peaches to throw into this pie during the Fall and Winter months. I can just picture cuddling in a thick quilt with a piping hot bowl of this pie with a bit of cream poured over top.

Making the batter is as simple as 1...2....3.
Then, fold in your peaches be they fresh, frozen or canned.

Pour into your baking dish.

Sprinkle some black berries over the top. I had about twice this much before a very curious 2 year old grabbed the cup of berries sitting on the counter and dumped half of them on the floor. 
Sabotage I tell you!

Bake for 45 minutes and enjoy the smell.

    This looks healthy and amazing Gwen. Just in time for peach season around here too! Thanks!

  2. Oh that looks like a pie I can handle making! And I'm sure it would work with any fruit, right?

  3. This looks fabulous! This is a recipe that I call a "dump and stir". You dump everything in, stir...and MAGIC!

    This looks delicious! And simple too! Fresh peaches are very costly over here, I think plums would be lovely too! Thanks for sharing!

    I've never seen a cobbler like this! It really looks good. I can see why you were scrambling to get pictures of it. Love the bit about the toddler true.

  7. I have to give this a try. It really looks delicious and Ican't wait to make it. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary

  8. I'm not much of a baker, but I think I can handle this recipe. I still have some fresh peaches on the counter and everything I need to give it a shot!

  9. This is coming at the perfect time. I'm hosting a bookclub/brunch on Sunday and I want to make this for the group. Thank you for making me drool (I'm certainly going to need a midnight snack now!) I hope your week is starting off well. Many blessings from Austin. Hugs and love!
