Nothing speaks more of summer than a fruit cobbler.
Love this dessert’s versatility because you can pretty much use your favorite
summer berry or fruit with it. While it does require some baking, when you top
it with pouring cream or ice cream, it certainly becomes a deliciously
refreshing summer dessert.
This cobbler came out of necessity. I already have a
slow cooker version but didn’t have the time to wait for it to cook in the slow
cooker. I needed something that I can make and serve within an hour or less. I
was going to a Breakfast Potluck that day and had to make something quick so I
thought of trying this. Am so glad that it all came together and the result was
truly amazing. A very flavorful cobbler made in a hurry!
The added spices enhance the flavor of the
batter/sponge and complement the berries’ tang while the chopped nuts add that
delicious crunch! So, if you’re short of time but still wish to make an amazing
dessert that’s sure to please then make this Mixed Berry Cobbler! Don’t forget
to serve it with a little pitcher of cream beside it. Enjoy!
1 stick (1/2 cup) Butter,
1 cup flour
¾ – 1 cup sugar*
1 teaspoon Baking Powder
½ teaspoon ground Cinnamon
¼ teaspoon ground Nutmeg
A pinch of cloves (optional)
½ cup milk
1 ½ cups each Raspberry and Blackberry (or
Blueberries), fresh or frozen
1/3 cup sugar
½-3/4 cup Pecans or Walnuts, chopped
*I used 1 cup of
sugar the first time but my husband said it was a little too sweet for his
liking. Others like it really sweet so trust your instincts on this. If your
berries are quite sweet then use only ¾ cup but if it’s mostly tart then you
can use the full cup.
Set the oven
temperature to 350F. Place the butter in
a 10- or 11-inch long rectangular baking dish and place in the oven and let the
butter melt as the oven heats up. Take the baking dish out when the butter is
already melted. Don’t let it brown.
Mix together the flour,
sugar, baking powder, and spices in a bowl. Add the milk to the flour mixture
and stir just until moistened. Spoon the batter over the melted butter.
In a small bowl, gently
mix the berries and sugar. Evenly distribute the sugared berries over the
batter. You can also add the extra sugar that may remain after the berries have
Sprinkle the chopped walnuts. Bake for about 35-40 minutes. Serve
warm with either some pouring cream (regular unwhipped heavy cream) or ice
