Abita Beer Cobbler

Cajun French:  la peche (la pesh)  –  peach


The fridge is still over stocked with beer and we are having fun cooking with the beer.  Having some fruit that needed eating, we decided to make cobbler.  We usually use premade pie crust for our cobbler and finding none the imagination kicked in.  Sweet Potato Biscuits, why not use the batter for the cobbler topping? And why not use beer for the liquid?  Why not for sure; it is fantastic!

Mais C’est Bon!



  • 2 cups Bruce’s Sweet Potato Pancake Mix
  • ¾ cup Abita Amber Beer
  • 1 Tbl olive oil
  • Dash salt
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 1 banana, chopped
  • 5 sm fresh peaches, pitted and chopped
  • 2 oz pineapple juice
  • 2 oz applesauce
  • 2 Tbl raw brown sugar

Preheat oven to 375.

Coarsely chop banana and peaches.  Place blueberries, chopped banana, and chopped peaches in bowl.  Pour in pineapple juice and applesauce, mix well.   Set aside.

In another bowl, combine pancake mix, beer, olive oil and salt.  Mix well.

Pour fruit in a medium sized cast iron skillet.  Sprinkle raw brown sugar on top of fruit.  Spread batter on top of fruit and sugar.

Bake in a 375 preheated oven for 30 minutes or until batter is cooked.

  1. Abita is my favorite beer! We have a six pack in the fridge right now and yes, I live in NM. Thank goodness I can get it here. As for the cobbler – never thought of using beer as the batter liquid. However, I can see that with Abita. Will definitely have to try it!
