Mixed Berry Cobbler

Makes 8 servings



1 tablespoon melted butter

2 cups mixed berries (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries)
1/4 cup (half stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 1/4 cups flour

1/2 cup milk
2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon table salt

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 cup warm water

1/4 cup granulated sugar


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.


With a pastry brush, coat the bottom of a 13 x 9 or large oval dish with melted butter. Evenly spread mixed berries on the bottom. Place dish on a lined baking sheet.

In a medium bowl, mix butter, sugar, flour, milk, baking powder, salt and vanilla with a wooden spoon. Spoon batter over fruit and spread evenly.

Mix remaining 1/4 cup sugar and 1/2 cup warm water. Pour evenly over dish. (This creates a golden brown crust and makes the fruit more soft and sweet)

Bake for 50-55 minutes, until topping is golden brown and fruit is bubbling.

Serve warm as is, orwith vanilla whipped cream (recipe below) or vanilla ice cream.
