There are endless options of food that you can cook on the grill. But what about dessert? I have only grilled dessert a few times, and every time I wonder why I don’t do it more often. It really makes perfect sense, you know? You still get to enjoy a delicious dessert – the best part of the meal as far as I’m concerned – and you don’t have to heat up your kitchen with your baking.
I’m sure you are familiar with the traditional cobbler made with fruit in a baked crust and seasoned with cinnamon and sugar. Well this Grilled Peach & Blueberry Cobbler is actually even easier than the cobbler you have been making.
Last week I shared with you the table we put together for Summer Entertaining. It’s bright and beautiful and goes together in minutes. We also created a really cool video to share with you that shows me making this cobbler, we would love for you to pop on over and check it out.
Along with the Grilled Southwest Chicken Wraps and a salad, we served this Grilled Peach & Blueberry Cobbler.
Peaches are one of my favorite fruits. There is nothing like biting into a juicy, sweet peach and having the juice run down your arm. When choosing a peach, be sure it has a little give to it, unless you like your peaches firm. As with most fruits, smell the peach – if it smells sweet, it should be perfect. Walmart has a great selection of fruit, including these peaches and blueberries.
We chose to cook the cobbler in the Lodge Logic Cast Iron Skillet. There is really nothing that beats cooking in cast iron, and while many are expensive, there is a 12 inch skillet for less than $30 on Amazon!
After the skillet is heated on the grill, melt the butter, then pour in the dough mixture; Bisquick, sugar and milk. Then top with the blueberries and peaches. Any type of fruit is fine though, pick your favorite.
Then a good coating of sugar and cinnamon mixture gets sprinkled over the fruit.
Now it’s time to enjoy a special drink on the deck and let the cobbler cook. Close the lid to the grill and let it cook for about 30 minutes until bubbly and the crust is golden brown.
Straight to the table from the grill and serve with big scoops of vanilla ice cream.
