Mixed Berry Cobbler

Last weekend, we got one gorgeous day. The sunshine was out, the birds were chirping. It really felt like spring. And in celebration, I decided to make a berry cobbler. Something about cobbler screams warmer weather to me. Like summer and enjoying sunshine on the back porch while you grill.

Or maybe it was hormones and I just wanted to be fat and happy. Either way, a mixed berry cobbler I made! 

Now the thing about cobblers is that it seems like everyone and their mom has their own recipe. Some are messy and more of a crumble, some hold together a little more and are more cake-like in consistency. This cobbler was the second version so if you’re more of a in your face messy cobbler, this may not be for you. But I promise you, it’s just as tasty! 

Enjoy and here’s to spring!

Cook Time

  1. 1/2 cup sugar
  2. 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  3. 3 cups frozen or fresh mixed berries (I used 1 cup of each raspberries, blackberries, and blueberries)
  4. 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  5. 1/2 cup flour
  6. 1/4 cup oats
  7. 1/3 cup brown sugar
  8. 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  9. pinch salt
  10. pinch nutmeg
  11. 3 tablespoons butter
  12. 1 tablespoon hot water
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease an 8x8 or small rectangular casserole dish and set aside.
  2. In a saucepan, mix sugar and cornstarch over medium heat. Add berries and lemon juice, toss well to coat. Boil 3 to 5 minutes for fresh berries, up to 10 minutes for frozen. Spoon into casserole dish.
  3. In a large bowl, mix the flour, oats, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg. Cut in butter either using a pastry blender or your fingers until the dough forms large crumbs. Stir in enough hot water to form a soft dough.
  4. Either drop balls of dough onto berry mixture or form patties to go over top the berry mixture.
  5. Bake 25 to 30 minutes at 400 degrees. Or until topping is golden brown.
  6. Serve with ice cream or whipped cream.
