Fruit Cobbler


Last year we planted blueberry bushes, blackberries, a fig tree and two plum trees.  We got about a handful of blueberries last year, a couple of blackberries, my fig tree died and we didn’t get any plums.  This year it looks like I’m going to get enough blueberries for a few pies and I picked about a cup of blackberries this morning.

What to do with 1 cup of blackberries?!?  I decided to make a mixed berry cobbler.  This is a cobbler that many of you probably already have the recipe for.  I’ve been making it forever.  In fact, it’s one of the first recipes I ever tried because it’s super simple.  I usually use a large can of peaches (pictured at the top of this posting), but today I used my 1 c. of blackberries, added 1 cup of blueberries from the freezer and sliced 1 c. fresh strawberries.  I served it warm with vanilla ice cream and it was delicious!

  1. Yum! This looks scrumtious!I love fruit cobblers, even though I don’t get to eat them a lot. Maybe I can talk mama into letting me make one (although if you have to eat them warm, this wouldn’t be a good time to make it). I can’t wait to try this one!

    • Well, mama always made cobblers that had a crust like a pie on top. This isn’t like that. If you make it with a large can of peaches you use the juice too which makes it a little juicier but still more cake like.
