Mixed Berries Cobbler

I’m always torn as to how I can write introductions to new recipes…introductions that don’t start with “Oh my this is so delicious” as I always end up doing lol but honestly, if it’s so delicious, how else can I introduce it?

I am not a fan of cooked fruits, specially if in a cake, call me crazy right? But I once saw someone doing a cobbler on tv and my mouth literally watered and I couldn’t resist it, I had to try and I absolutely fell in love with every single bite!! I have done cobblers with prunes, strawberries, apples but this last one topped the list: mixed berries! Oh yammm!! I honestly used frozen and let me tell you it was so much cheaper and easier and it tasted equally delicious and on top of that, with frozen berries, you can have this even if they aren’t in season so basically whenever the mood strikes! You can use this same recipe with fruits that you have on hand so get creative!

The biscuits on top are crunchy on the outside and moist on the inside…Give it a try and thank me later!! it comes together really quickly as well…now, let’s indulge!

Serves 4-6 people

Ingredients:

For the fruits:

  • 400 gr frozen berries
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar or honey
  • 1 1/2 tbsp corn starch
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • A splash of whiskey, optional

For the biscuits:

  • 1 1/3 all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 85 gr cold butter, cubed
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 80 ml natural yogurt or greek yogurt

Method:

For the biscuits:

  • In your food processor place the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, sugar and pulse a couple of times to combine all ingredients.
  • Now add the butter and pulse 4-5 times.
  • Now add the yogurt and pulse again till a lumpy dough forms.
  • Tip everything on a floured surface and bring together with your hands. Form a disk and using a rolling pin generously dusted with flour, roll the dough till it reaches 1 cm in thickness. Using a small cookie cutter, cut out the biscuits and adjust them on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Repeat the process till you finish the dough. Place in the fridge for 15 minutes. (The dough is fairly wet so don’t be tempted to add too much flour)

For the fruits:

  • Place all your fruits in your baking dish and add all the other ingredients. Mix together until everything is well combined and set aside.

Assemble:

  • Take the biscuits dough out of the fridge and place them on top of the fruits. Sprinkle some extra brown sugar on top of each and bake in a preheated oven on 180 degrees till the fruits are bubbly and juicy and the biscuits are golden on top. (TIP: place the baking dish you are using for the cobbler on another flat baking tray before baking, this will ensure no drippings in the oven and you will be able to manage the tray easily)
  • Serve warm or at room temperature with vanilla ice cream.

Buon Appetito!!!
