Summer Fruit Cobbler
Nothing highlights the fruits of summer more than a cobbler for dessert. Served warm or at room temperature with vanilla ice cream or freshly whipped cream, fruit cobblers are always a crowd pleaser. We’ve got a *super* easy recipe for you to try with nearly any of your favorite fresh (or frozen) fruits. This recipe is very flexible and better yet, it travels well too! Lean in close, it doesn’t get much easier than this!
Begin by choosing your own adventure or in this case, fruit. You can use peaches, nectarines, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries or blackberries or any combination of these. We’re using strawberries, blueberries and blackberries in our cobbler. Preheat the oven to 350ºF and gather the rest of your ingredients.
This recipe can be made in an 8” square pan or a 9” round pie dish. Once the oven is warm, melt the butter in the baking dish in the oven. This will take about 4-5 minutes. In the meantime, measure the flour, salt and baking powder into a bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk, vanilla and egg. Mix together the wet and dry ingredients and pour over the melted butter. Evenly distribute the prepared fruit over the batter. Then sprinkle sugar over the fruit. We like to use turbinado sugar for a little extra crunch where the batter browns.
Bake the cobbler for about 50-60 minutes. It will be done when the batter is golden brown and the fruits are bubbly. Although the smell will be irresistible, you’ll want to let it cool a little before serving. If you’re traveling to a friend’s house, just slide the dish into our new Covered Dish Tote and go!
