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
- 6 ounces of raspberries
- baking powder
- kosher salt
- unbleached all-purpose flour
- half & half
- melted (unsalted butter)
- 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 is fine too.
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°.
Bake 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.
It’s like total magic amiright? And it smells heavenly!!
Allow the triple berry cobbler to cool for at least 15 to 20 minutes before dusting with powdered sugar.
Serve spoonfuls in shallow dishes with a dollop of either homemade whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
Mint sprigs are optional but add a pop of green that I simply love.
