Make this easy nectarine cobbler for a wonderful and easy summer dessert.

There’s nothing fancy or complicated here allowing the wonderful, juicy flavor of nectarines to shine through and be complimented by a light and sweet topping.

No Peeling Required

The great thing about using nectarines, is that you get all of the flavor of peaches without any of the fuzz.

Nectarines are merely fuzzless peaches meaning you can make this dessert without having to peel the fruit first.

Want to Use Canned Fruit?

If you canned nectarines and want to use those instead, simply drain them quite well and use them instead of fresh in the fruit layer. Because the canned nectarines are likely sweetened from sugar syrup you may want to use less sugar in the fruit layer.

Adjust the Sugar

There’s sugar in both the fruit layer and the topping. Feel free to adjust the sugar up or down as desired. If the fruit is especially sweet, you might not want to add much additional sugar to it.

Because the fruit layer is so naturally sweet, there isn’t much additional sugar in the topping at all. Feel free to add more or less to taste. Remember that the topping will absorb some of the sweet juices from the fruit.

Self-Rising Flour

Because the topping is quite like a biscuit in texture, I used self rising flour here.

If you don’t have self-rising flour, substitute 2 cups of all purpose flour and add 3 teaspoons of baking powder and ½ teaspoon of salt to the batter.

Buttermilk gives the topping a delightful airiness and tangy flavor. Use actual buttermilk if you have it. The powdered buttermilk works too – just follow the package instructions. Sour milk by adding some vinegar works just as well here.

Substitute plain milk if desired, it will work and the flavor will change just slightly.

How to Serve

Nectarine cobbler is quite wonderful served warm just as it is, but if you want to elevate it even more consider serving it with some ice cream or whipped cream.

Storing Leftovers

Store any leftovers tightly covered in the refrigerator. The cobbler will keep well for up to 4 days this way.
