I consider cobbler to be the “comfort food” of dessert. I mean, is there anything more satisfying than a warm cobbler served with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream?
With my no-fuss cobbler recipe featuring remarkably few ingredients, you’ll be able to whip this up in a snap and serve it to a table full of happy diners in no time. Even better? You probably have all the ingredients in your pantry.
Since so many fruits are at their peak production this time of year, the options are endless for all sorts of cobblers. Blackberries, strawberries, raspberries, peaches, apples. They’re all perfectly tasty! The key is using fresh fruit, not canned or jarred. I prefer organic fruit and other ingredients, but that is a personal choice and you should select your favorites!
Bonus Tip: Since berries are plentiful and at their lowest price of the year, buy them in bulk and put them in zipped freezer bags. When you want a warm cobbler this winter, take the berries out of the bag and they’ll be as fresh as the day they were frozen!
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 cup flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup regular oats (optional, and not the quick cooking type)
3/4 stick butter, melted
32 ounces of fresh fruit
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Slice the fruit into bite sized pieces (leave raspberries or blueberries whole). Place in a bowl with 1/4 cup of granulated sugar and mix gently. Let sit for 30 minutes for the sugar to soften the fruit.
Mix flour, brown sugar, oats (if using) in another bowl and pour in melted butter. Mix until small clumps form. Consider adding a pinch of salt and a dash of cinnamon when mixing the dry ingredients to boost flavor.
Pour fruit into a greased baking dish or cast iron skillet and crumble the topping in an even coating, covering all fruit.
Pop the cobbler into the 350 degree oven for around 30 minutes or until lightly browned and bubbly.
Serve with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream and enjoy this delicious dessert with your family!
