Triple Berry Cobbler

Three berries, one cobbler. This Triple Berry Cobbler is bursting at its seams with summer berries. It’s sweet and tart and the berries are cocooned in a deliciously moist cake. Serve spoonfuls in shallow dishes with a dollop of whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.

What I love about cobblers is their simplicity, not only just to whip up but the ingredients too. Basically you can just pick your fruit, make the quick cake and essentially dump them together in a baking dish and pop it into the oven. <—THIS is why I love it so.

The last time I made a cobbler it was this brown butter peach version in 2014. This past weekend I decided to give it a try using summer’s vibrant, seedy berries instead. My berries of choice? Strawberries (obviously), raspberries and blackberries. In my opinion they create the most beautiful pink color when cooked, and besides being a delicious sweet and tart combo, I’m all about the color.

Blueberries would’ve be fine too (I guess) but they tend to turn everything blueish purple and that’s not the color I wanted. <— drama.

And because over the more recent years I’ve really come to love warm dessert with cold ice cream or cool whip, so I added a dollop of whipped cream on top of my bowl and then I wait for it to melt a little. *swoon*

To make this triple berry cobbler you will need: 2 cups hulled and halved strawberries, 6 ounces of blackberries and 6 ounces of raspberries, lemon, flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, flour, half & half, melted (unsalted butter) and vanilla extract.

Melt one stick of butter in a small saucepan and pour it into a 3 to 3.5 quart or 9x13x2 baking dish.

Then, in a medium bowl combine 1 cup all purpose flour, 1 cup sugar, 1 tablespoon baking powder and 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt. Stir together, then pour in the half & half and mix until just combined.

Then pour the cake batter over top of the melted butter and set off to the side for a moment.

In a medium saucepan, add the strawberries and blackberries (NOT the raspberries!), the remaining 1/2 cup of sugar and juice of a small to medium lemon. I don’t add the raspberries because they’re super delicate and would fall apart after one stir of the pot.

Toss to combine and heat on high until the liquids in the pan boils, then immediately remove off the heat– this should only take a few minutes.

Use a spoon or curved spatula to spoon the berries on top of the cake, then scatter the raspberries over the top.

Slide the baking dish into your preheated 375° for 40 to 50 minutes or until the top is richly golden brown. Halfway through, rotate the pan for even cooking. When a cake tester is inserted, it should come out clean.

1/8 teaspoon kosher salt

1/2 cup half & half

2 (generous) cups halved or quartered strawberries

6 ounces raspberries

6 ounces blackberries

1/2 cup sugar

3/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

    I am baking this off right now and it smells and looks wonderful. A couple of comments. I assumed that “glory” in the directions is the flour, perhaps due to the strange spell checking, etc. that we all experience. But, the addition of the 3/4 teaspoon of vanilla is not noted in the directions. Again, I assumed it was added to the fruit mixture once off of the stovetop as it was at the end of the ingredient list. Looks like 40 minutes was good

      Gah! Thanks, Colleen! Yes, glory = flour silly autocorrect! I appreciate the heads up and have made the changes.
