Easy Mixed Berry Cobbler
When I spotted an easy blueberry cobbler in Cook’s Country, I knew it would be perfect for our weekly family Sunday dinner. Making desserts is a must as our grown boys come by for some of mom’s home cooking. They’re pretty healthy eaters throughout the week, so Sunday is their day to indulge. And even though I’m still without a full kitchen, I do have an oven plugged into my counterless, dishwasherless, sinkless kitchen space. But easy is the name of the game these days!

Tips for Making the Best Cobbler
Using seasonal fruit is key for making a flavorful cobbler. I found ripe beautiful blueberries and raspberries in the market and my decision was made.
- Cobblers can have a variety of toppings, batter, biscuit, even pie crust. This easy cobbler recipe was a bit different as the batter was added to the baking dish, then the fruit was just sprinkled over the batter.
- To make this cobbler recipe super simple, the flour, leavening and salt was replaced with self rising flour. Note that self-rising flour contains baking powder, which does have an expiration date. Since I rarely use self-rising flour, I prefer making a couple cups of my own mixture and storing a small amount instead of a whole box.
- PRO-Tip: To make 2 cups of self rising flour, whisk together 2 cups of flour, 1 tablespoon baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Store any leftovers in a sealed container and mark with the expiration date on your baking powder.*
- Another shortcut is using sweetened condensed milk for part of the sweetener and the liquid. There’s also a little milk and some some sugar dusted over the fruit before baking.
- Serve warm with some sweetened whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
- Feel free to use 2 cups of a single berry instead of mixed berries, blueberries, raspberries and strawberries (sliced or diced) work well.
