Nectarines are a shortcut in themselves since you don't have to peel them to cook with them. It's so quick and easy to make Nectarine Cinnamon-Sugar Cobbler for a summer bbq or cookout. Just slice them and pour the batter over the nectarines without stirring and bake!
Why should peaches get all the attention this summer? In the South, we love our peaches, don't get me wrong, but I love that I can just bite right into a nectarine without the peach fuzz.
Peach skin is perfectly edible, full of anti-oxidants and is one of the best cancer-fighting foods but I still prefer to peel it for cobbler.
Not having to peel the nectarines for this cobbler not only gets the cobbler in the oven quicker but the nectarine skins are chock full of fiber and vitamin C.
This is absolutely my go-to cobbler recipe. What I love most about it is you don't have to cook the filling before baking and you don't have to cut in the butter into the crust mixture. You just pour the batter over the fruit and butter and the buttery crust rises to the top as it bakes!
How do I make nectarine or peach cobbler?
Melt butter in the oven. Measure flour and sugar, then, milk, and vanilla. Slice the peaches (I use peaches, too) or nectarines and toss with flour and sugar mixture.
Pour the thin batter over the melted butter and fruit in the baking pan or casserole dish. DO NOT STIR. Arrange peaches or nectarines over the batter. DO NOT STIR.
Bake the cobbler on the middle rack of the oven at 350 degrees for 40 minutes or until the crust is lightly browned and the fruit mixture is bubbly. the texture of this cobbler is cake-like. For a peach cobbler with an oatmeal cookie crumble topping try Blueberry Peach Cobbler. (You can always omit the blueberries and use 4 cups of peaches.)
Enjoy this quick and easy fruit cobbler with nectarines, peaches, plums, bing/Ranier cherries, or apricots. IN the Winter, you can use drained canned peaches.
What's the Shortcut?
- Self-rising flour has the leavening already in it.
- You can purchase cinnamon-sugar already combined.
- Nectarines are basically peaches you don't have to peel.
- You can make it with frozen, thawed fruit
