Triple Berry Cobbler

Triple Berry Cobbler
My hubby John loves fruit pie and this is a easy substitute when you need a nice fresh summer dessert but don't feel like rolling out the pie crust!  This is quick and delicious and is super easy too, and it is a perfect sweet treat to end a summer meal.  Summer is the perfect time to make this dessert when the berries are plentiful and ripe for picking! But frozen fruit works with this recipe too!


Fruit Cobbler
4 to 6 Cups fruit (fresh or frozen) (I used 8... the more the better!)
2 Tbs. butter cut in small pieces
2 cups flour
1 Cup Sugar 
4 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
4 Tbs. melted butter
1 cup milk

1 cup sugar
3/4 cup cold water

Directions:  Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.  Spread fruit in sprayed baking dish and dot with 2 Tbs. butter pieces.  Mix together the flour, 1 cup sugar, baking powder, salt, melted butter, and milk until you have a smooth batter.  Pour batter over fruit in dish and spread to cover. Sprinkle 1 cup of sugar over top of batter in pan, covering batter completely (this makes a nice sugary crust!) Pour 3/4 cup cold water over sugar.  Bake 30 to 40 minutes at 400 degrees until top is browned and fruit is looking bubbly around the edges. Remove from oven and let cool slightly.  This cobbler is wonderful served warm with vanilla ice cream, or frozen yogurt! 

Cook Notes - This dessert is great made with fresh or frozen fruit.  I quite often use a triple berry blend from Costco (blackberries, raspberries, blueberries).  It is delicious just made with raspberries, or blueberries, and I have also made it with peaches too!

Don't judge a book by it's cover... or in this case a dessert by it's picture... it really is delicious!

So sorry that I did not take very good pictures of me making this recipe.  I forgot to take one until I had already put it in the oven and when I took it out it was time to leave to take it to our friends house for dinner so the other pictures where taken with my cell phone when we where enjoying it!  I think everyone liked it because there was only one piece left in the dish when we left!

We enjoyed a delicious dinner with our friends!

I hope if you give this recipe a try you will love it as much as we do. The original recipe was given to my Mom by her neighbor Alyce Cue in 1998 and we have been enjoying it ever since!

Feeling Fruity,
Sandy
