Only Easy: Misty’s Summer Berry Cobbler

By Misty I.

Need a ridiculously easy summer dessert for your Independence Day BBQ? Make this! It takes less than ten minutes to prep. I literally throw this together an hour before my guests arrive for a hibachi (local term for cookout or bbq), it makes the house smell ahhhhmazing, will still be warm when it’s time to serve dessert, and it’s not overly sweet. Have I convinced you to make it yet? It’s also versatile since you can make it with whatever fruit you have on hand that’s fresh or frozen. Ok, maybe not whatever you have…like kiwi or something. That might be gross.

Serve the cobbler with vanilla bean ice cream. Plus you know, it’s fruit so it’s practically healthy!

Summer Berry Cobbler

INGREDIENTS:

2-3 C. frozen or fresh mixed berries (or peaches etc.)
4 T. butter, salted
¾ C. flour
¾ C. milk
¾ C. sugar
1 tsp. baking powder

Optional: you can add an additional tablespoon of sugar for sprinkling over fruit and batter before baking if you’re feeling fancy

METHOD:

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Place butter in 8”x11” pan (or 9” round pie pan) and place in oven to melt. Remove pan from oven.
  3. Whisk flour, sugar, and baking powder in a small bowl. Add milk and whisk a little until smooth. Pour batter into pan and sprinkle fruit over batter.
  4. Bake for 50-60 minutes.
  5. Note: I use frozen berries for this, you can’t tell the difference. Save your fresh berries for snacking.

Serve warm or at room temperature. That’s it, only easy!
