This recipe is a synthesis of a various recipes i’ve seen on making cobblers. i like mine to have less sugar so that you can really taste the berries.
- 3/4 c butter
- 2-3 cups of mixed berries
- 1 1/2 c flour
- 1 t baking powder
- 1/3 cup whole milk
- 1/2 cup warm water
- 1/2 cup raw cane sugar
- 1 T cinnamon
- (opt) 1/4 c chopped crystalized ginger (in addition to where cinnamon is used)
- (opt) 1/4 c chopped pecans (in addition to where cinnamon is used)
- (opt) replace 1/2 cup of the flour with oats ground in a food processor
Mix the butter in with the flour & baking powder. Add in the milk, mix into a ball, kneed a few times. Put 1/3 of the dough on the bottom of the disk, sprinkle with 1/2 of the cinnamon.
Toss in the berries. Sprinkle the rest of the cinnamon.
Add the rest of the dough to make the cap. Mix the warm water & sugar, driizzle over the top.
Bake at 350 for 45 mins. Sprinkle the top w/ a bit of sugar and bake for 20 more mins.
Enjoy with a good quality vanilla ice cream!
Note: another good fruit combination is pear and mango. add blueberries too!
