Why I love this mixed berry cobbler recipe

When you don’t want a whole lot of a single dessert but you still want it to be a good one, there’s this cobbler recipe.

Seriously, it’s so simple and easy that you spend barely any time at all prepping the thing. Speaking of prepping, this dish is all made in the baking dish. Not once do you actually NEED a mixing bowl. Less dirty dishes is always nice, yes?

With a chewy and crispy edge to the batter cake and sweet tender berries down below this cobbler recipe is everything you’d expect. Not too runny, not too sweet, and not too far away if you get started on it soon!

Tips for making berry cobbler with frozen berries

It’s going to feel a bit weird making this because the berries go on top of the batter while you’re prepping. Cobblers have the bread on top, and trust me, this crust will get there. Even though the berries are tossed on top, the bread will rise as it bakes and everything will end up where it has to go.

Don’t spend too long trying to space out berries or do anything more than scattering them, because they actually shift during baking and your hard work will be ruined. Most of the time the berries join together in the center and leave a thick edge for the cobbler.

If you want more berries, you can add up to 1/2 cup of more frozen berries when making the dish.

Check on the baking dish about 10 minutes before the timer is set to go off, if the bread can have a toothpick come out clean, it’s ready. You’ll have berry juice on the toothpick but you don’t want to see any batter goop. (Internal temp 200F degrees on an instant read thermometer).

Should I thaw frozen fruit before baking?

Nope, no need. You can literally pull the berries out of the freezer as they are needed in the recipe and then toss them in the dish. It’s so super easy! They thaw as they bake and turn out perfectly.

Is a cobbler the same as a crumble or crisp?

No. A fruit cobbler is similar but very different. The difference lays in the topping. A cobbler is more of a cake-like layer on top whereas a crumble or crisp has more of a streusel-like topping usually made with oats, flour, butter, sugar, and cinnamon.

How to make mixed berry cobbler

Preheat your oven to 350 F degrees and place your cold butter in an 8×8 baking dish. Place the baking dish in the oven to heat the butter and pan as the oven preheats. About 5 minutes.

Remove the pan from the oven and add all of the ingredients to the baking dish, except or the fruit. Whisk together until mostly smooth.

Scatter the frozen fruit over the batter.

Bake the dish in the preheated oven until a toothpick comes out clean or it registers 200F degrees on an instant read thermometer.
