Every summer my boyfriend’s extended family travels to Roseburg, Oregon to pick berries together. I think it’s a really sweet tradition– everyone working together, enjoying the sun, and stocking up on wholesome fresh foods. While I sadly was not able to go with them this summer, I got to enjoy the berries afterward, so I made out pretty well after all.
Nathan went with his family and brought back cherries, marion berries, blue berries, and most importantly his mother’s cobbler recipe.
The cobbler was so good! Nathan told me his mom wouldn’t mind if I posted the recipe online, so hopefully he’s right. 🙂
This recipe doesn’t require a very long list of ingredients and it was surprisingly easy to throw together.
Fresh fruit or berries
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 Tablespoons butter melted
a pinch of cinnamon
Step One: Set oven to 375 degrees. Place fruit or berries in a buttered pie plate. We used marion and blue berries.
In a small bowl combine flour, sugar, and baking powder. Once dry ingredients are thoroughly mixed together, add an egg to the mixture.
Step Three: Mix until incorporated, but lumpy. I think we may have stirred the egg a little too long. I was adamant about covering all of the sugar granules with egg, but I don’t think that was really necessary. Over-mixing made the topping a little cakey rather than the crumbly crust you ordinarily find on a cobbler.
Step Four: Spoon the mixture over berries or fruit and drizzle with melted butter. Lastly, sprinkle cinnamon over the crust.
Step Five: Place in 375 degree oven for roughly 30 minutes, or until the crust is golden.
Since there is only 1/2 cup of sugar in this entire cobbler, a nice scoop of ice cream accompanies it perfectly.
Making this refreshing sweet tart dessert was a great way to celebrate summer.
