Fresh apricots baked under an almond-studded, lemon-scented layer of cake – this APRICOT COBBLER is delicious!

Ready to serve up something fabulous for dessert? This APRICOT COBBLER is ready in less than an hour and we know you’ll appreciate the simplicity of the dish with its stellar, seasonal flavours.

I’m a huge fan of an old fashioned cobbler because of its homespun appearance. If you’re the type to fear failure about making homemade desserts, end such silliness right here and now – this easy cobbler recipe is a foolproof dessert. It’s not meant to look perfect, and it certainly can’t be called fancy, but it’s a fresh and flavourful fruit dish that exudes down-home cooking.

This isn’t our first crack at the cobbler can, we also made an equally fantastic PEACH COBBLER a few years back. Click HERE to view that post and go HERE to watch that video.

Here are a few reasons why I love this APRICOT COBBLER recipe so much:

APRICOT LOVE!

Is there anything more delicious than fresh, locally grown apricots when they’re in season? This recipe brings out the best flavours from these summertime favourites. The apricots hold their shape when their natural sugars caramelize with the butter. Check out the amazing colour too! Yum!

TOP IT OFF!

If the cake topper on the cobbler seems too dense, don’t worry – it eventually melts and spreads out evenly over the fruit as it bakes, even puffing up in the final minutes. It’s a lovely, sweet cap for this fruity concoction. The almonds give the dessert a fabulous nuttiness.

SUBSTITUTIONS

If apricots aren’t your thing, feel free to substitute using the same quantity (about 5 cups) of a fruit more to your liking. I recommend trying blueberries, peaches, plums, blackberries, or even apple.

Don’t forget to serve your warm cobbler with whipped cream or well-paired ice creams like HOMEMADE VANILLA or our tasty STRAWBERRY-RHUBARB ICE CREAM. Either will add yet another nuance to this time-honoured and most beloved dessert. If you prefer to enjoy it as an afternoon treat, we suggest serving it with a favourite summer drink like our GRILLED LEMONADE.

Looking for that magical ending to your next family dinner or friendly get-together? Serving an APRICOT COBBLER will do the trick!

    This looks incredible. Do you think if I skipped the icecream I could serve this for breakfast?
