Peach and Strawberry Flapjack Cobbler

Peach and strawberry cobbler | Butter Baking

So it’s getting cold.

And I don’t like it.

I want warm, summer, sun, long days, being outside, the beach, fruit, cocktails…

And the list goes on.

Instead, it’s rainy, the sun goes down super early, the heater is on and I’m back to wearing two pairs of socks to bed.

And I’m in denial.

I don’t want to accept that we’re already more than halfway through autumn. Nor do I want to face that winter is right around the corner.

So I’m still baking with summer fruit.I have no idea how it’s still in the stores, or where the peaches and strawberries are coming from in late April, but if they’re there, I’m certainly going to be baking with them.

And making crumbly, oaty, fruity, cobblers.

I absolutely, absolutely LOVE this crumbly, cobbler-style dish.

I was eating this baby for breakfast with yogurt, straight out of the baking dish for lunch, and in heaped bowlfuls for dessert.

I love the baked strawberries and the peaches work with them beautifully.

The topping is like an oaty, crisp crumble around the edges, like a flapjack, while the middle is a softer, cobbler-style pastry.

It was baked fruit love, and I really want summer fruit to stick around a little longer so I can bake this thing over and over again.

  1. Oh my, I love flapjacks! Luckily the weather is turning hotter over here, so the local summerfruits are just around the corner 😉

  2. OMG this sound so super delicious! And I just love your pictures and this cute green plate 😛 Luckily I live on the other half of the world and spring is veeerrry slowly approaching, so this recipe is just perfect now 😀 I wouldn’t mind if you would post summer-y dishes throughout all of your winter 😛 Hahaha, crazy world 😉

  3. I can understand your resistance to winter, Natasha! Not to rub it in, but I am excited for this recipe because I am soooo looking forward to fresh fruit and cobblers in the next few months! This is the perfect dessert to usher in the warm weather here. All through my winter I sighed at Australian bbq blogs and bookmarked for later use. So if you would like to do summer recipes all through the Australian winter, that is fine with me! :)

    • Haha you lucky thing you, you’ve got spring now, and summer is right around the corner! I hope you bake it and love it as much as I do :-)
      Haha and I will make sure I throw in the occasional summer recipe for you 😉

  6. This looks and sounds incredible!

  7. Looks amazing! I will definitely try this recipe. Thank you (:

  8. One of my favorite things about summer, besides being able to wear shorts, is enjoying the bounty of fresh fruit. Inspiration for desserts is never a problem in summer: I just have to go to the farmers’ market and I’m bedazzled by the overflowing baskets of blueberries, peaches, nectarines, cherries, and strawberries before my eyes, beseeching me to find them a home in a delicious dessert or two. There’s no end to the possibilities of what you can make with a ripe bowl of fruit; in fact, sometimes the challenge is deciding what recipe to try before you’ve eaten all the fruit out of hand! Since summer can also bring hot, lazy weather that discourages long hours in front of the oven, I like to have several dessert recipes on hand that are quick, simple, and allow the simple beauty of summer fruit to shine through. Here they are: feel free to use whatever fruit catches your fancy, as they’re all quite easygoing and adaptable recipes!
