Ingredients for Berry Cobbler
This berry cobbler is pretty easy and requires minimal ingredients. The batter is made of white flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, milk, vanilla extract and butter. The berries are added last and provide a lovely pop of color and fun flavor.
You can choose to use your favorite berry for this recipe. I have tried using mixed berries, cherries and strawberries. So far my favorite has been strawberry cobbler. You can also choose to use fresh or frozen berries. For my strawberry cobbler I was able to use up the strawberries that we picked from a strawberry farm last June and kept in our deep freezer.
Baking the Berry Cobbler
The cobbler is baked at a low temperature for a long time. This ensures that the middle is cooked through without burning the edges. Just make sure you plan ahead as it does take awhile to bake, just over an hour and a half.
Make sure you use a deep pie or quiche dish as this cobbler will fill the whole dish and it does rise.
You can serve the cobbler warm if you like, with a scoop of cold ice cream or a glass of cold milk.
Nutrition for Berry Cobbler
As this recipe is a dessert recipe, you will find that it is plentiful in carbohydrates, sugar, fat and calories. Go ahead and enjoy it! Dessert can fit into healthy diets when we enjoy a regular serving here and there. With that being said, I was mindful to pair down how much sugar and butter is put into the recipe. I find that most dessert recipes can be made with either 1/2 or 3/4 the amount of sugar that is called for. You would never miss the extra sugar, and I truly believe that it allows you taste the other flavors present in the dish.
