I’m loving this Vegan Blueberry Peach Cobbler recipe right now. It’s easy to bake, works with seasonal fresh fruit or frozen fruit (for any time of year), and uses everyday pantry ingredients. You wont’ need to hunt for the perfect buttery spread – this dessert is “butterless.” It’s also nut-free and soy-free to fit most special diet needs. The recipe is a special treat that Dianne Wenz shared with us, as a sample from her cookbook Eating Vegan: A Plant-Based Cookbook for Beginners.
Vegan Blueberry Peach Cobbler that Anyone Can Bake
In all of her cookbooks, Dianne is always full of interesting information and helpful tips. You’ll note that she offers a frozen fruit option in this recipe. And in the intro, she explains why this is a blueberry peach cobbler, specifically.
There are so many different fruity desserts, it’s difficult to keep them straight. Cobblers, crisps, crumbles, buckles, betties, slumps, and grunts (yes, really)—what’s the difference? They’re similar in that they’re all baked fruit with some sort of topping. The difference comes with exactly what that topping is. Cobblers have a biscuit style topping. They work well with just about any type of fruit, so feel free to mix it up. ~ Eating Vegan, Dianne Wenz
Dianne’s choice of fruit is perfect for this time of year. Peaches and blueberries are still abundant. But as the weather turns, you might transition to blackberries, then apples, or even pears.
Special Diet Notes: Vegan Blueberry Peach Cobbler
By ingredients, this recipe is dairy-free / non-dairy, egg-free, nut-free, peanut-free, soy-free, vegan, and vegetarian.
- 4 peaches, peeled, pitted, and sliced
- 3 cups blueberries
- ¼ + ½ cup sugar, divided
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, divided
- 1¼ cups all-purpose flour
- 1½ teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ cup dairy-free milk beverage
- ¼ cup oil
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Preheat your oven to 375°F and have an 8x11-inch baking pan ready.
- In a large bowl, stir together the peaches, blueberries, cornstarch, ¼ cup sugar, lemon juice, and ½ teaspoon cinnamon. Spread them in the bottom of the baking dish.
- In another large bowl, whisk together the flour, remaining ½ cup sugar, baking powder, remaining ½ teaspoon cinnamon, and salt.
- In a small bowl, mix together the milk beverage, oil, and vanilla extract. Add to the flour mixture and mix until just combined. Do not over-mix. Spread the mixture over the fruit. It’s okay if it’s uneven.
- Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, or until the fruit is bubbly and the topping is golden brown. Let cool slightly before serving.
This recipe is EXACTLY what I have been looking for! However, I only have canned peaches to use. How do I need to adjust this recipe to be conducive to the delicious outcome?
You can use them. They’re already cooked, so I would be careful not to bake the cobbler for too long. I don’t have any adjustments to recommend because I haven’t made cobbler with canned fruit. But from what I’m reading, they can just be swapped in.
This looks amazing. Can I use coconut oil? 🙂
Yes, just make sure you use it correctly. If following the recipe specifically, make sure the oil is melted and your milk beverage is at room temperature. Cold liquid will cause the oil to solidify into little shards. If you want a flakier topping, you can whisk the solid or melted coconut oil into the flour mixture until coarse crumbs form. Then stir in the cool milk beverage. This is more of a biscuit method.
Making it a second time. It turned out delicious!
Can I replace the blueberries from this recipe with raspberries? I am not sure how it will taste
Yes, raspberries are delicious with peaches! Just keep in mind that they typically are slightly more tart and wee little seeds.
