Berry Berry Cobbler

Before we get into a debate about what a cobbler is, I understand that there are different kinds of cobblers. This kind happens to be what my family made when I was coming up.

A simple sugary batter is poured into a buttered dish with fruit spooned on top and somehow, magically, the batter rises to the top and the fruit juices end up on the bottom making this lovely interpretation of a cobbler. It is quick and easy and can be made into many different variations, depending on what fruit you have available, it just takes a little creative ingenuity. Enjoy!

  • 4 cups sliced strawberries
  • 1 cup blackberries, whole
  • 2 cups sugar, divided
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 8 tablespoons butter
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • Cinnamon Sugar, for sprinkling

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine the strawberries, 1 cup sugar, and water in a saucepan and mix well. Bring to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat. Add blackberries. Put the butter in a 3-quart baking dish and place in oven to melt. Mix remaining 1 cup sugar, baking powder, salt, flour, and milk slowly to prevent clumping. Pour mixture over melted butter. Do not stir. Spoon fruit on top, gently pouring in syrup. Sprinkle top with cinnamon sugar. Batter will rise to top during baking. Bake for 30 to 45 minutes. To serve, scoop onto a plate and serve with your choice of whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.

  1. Easy … and looks good enough to eat. Will go on file until the fresh blackberries will be ready to be picked – September and they grow in thousands along the path from the railway station and mum’s apartment.

    1. Oh yes, this is a good Berry Berry, not an ailment; though might find your reflexes sharpen and lips get bumping together so fast that your face ends up black and blue. Or so my family says about good food. ;)

    1. Yes, I forget when blackberries are in full swing in those parts. I know strawberries are ready, but we used to pick wild blackberries off the side of the rode and it seemed to be in the heat of the summer if my memory serves me correct but that could be anytime with the heat down there.
