What ingredients do you need for this mixed berry cobbler recipe?

This can not get easier – it is the perfect dessert recipe, looks impressive, but comes together in no time. It is also the perfect dessert to prep for any entertaining, or party! Every year, my aunt Lulu makes some sort of mixed berry cobbler for the holidays with a similar topping, and this recipe is inspired by her!

Mixed berries: We are using strawberries, raspberries and blackberries! Other berries like blueberries can also work here. If you don’t like a berry over the other, feel free to omit, and use whatever berries you love! I think other fruit such as cherries or peaches would also work wonderfully here.

*We are using fresh berries, but frozen berries work just as good.

Flour: We are using all purpose flour here to help create the beautiful creamy and luscious berry cobbler. You can opt to use baking powder/cornstarch, but I personally love the flour here.

Granulated Sugar: Need I say more?

Salt: We are using just a little dash of salt in the crumble, it just helps balance out everything!

We are finishing the cobbler with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, but you can also serve with whipped cream.

Lemon juice and lemon zest: for some brightness and freshness!

For the crumble/streusel: cold butter, flour, sugar, brown sugar and salt. SO good, and so easy! We aren’t using oats for this recipe, but feel free to add that in this topping if you want to make this a crisp!

Alternate dough toppings: you can also make a biscuit topping with buttermilk, or a pie crust to go on top!

Instructions to make this fruit cobbler recipe

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and make your berry mixture

In a medium bowl, add your berries. Mix in sugar and flour, lemon juice and zest. Whisk until combined. Set aside.

While set aside, make your streusel crumble topping

In another bowl, add in flour, sugar, brown sugar, a pinch of salt and cold cubed butter. Gently massage all these dry ingredients together, until a crumbly mixture is formed. All of the flour, sugar, brown sugar and salt should be mixed into the cold butter into one cohesive topping.

Assemble to bake your dessert

In a baking dish that is oven safe (we are using a medium sized cast-iron), you can use a baking dish, little cocotte’s or anything you have on hand, even 2 separate oven safe dishes would work well, if you want to serve them per serving!

Add your berry mixture in the pan. (You can opt to also rub some butter, or add cooking spray on the sides of the pan prior to adding in the berries, but that’s optional). Depending on your vessel, this may help with sticking.

Once the berry cobbler mixture is in the pan or dish, sprinkle with your crumbled topping. Bake until the berries are juicy, they are bubbling, and the top crumble topping is golden brown. About 50 minutes to 1 hour depending on your oven. Towards the end of the cooking time (10-15 minutes), you can opt to either raise the temperature to 400 or use the broiler, if you want a more golden brown crust.

Top with ice cream and serve!

Remove from the oven, let cool for 5-10 minutes, top with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Or serve in individual bowls, and then top with a scoop of ice cream. Serve!

How do you thicken a berry cobbler?

Yes feel free to opt to use any of your favorite berries or fruit that is in season. You can swap with peaches, apples, persimmons, really anything you have on hand, in the fridge or freezer will do here!

    I tried the recipe as written. A ½ stick of butter isn’t enough. The resulting topping mixture was more like sand. I thought maybe the fruit mixture would bubble up through to wet it, but it didn’t. I ended up placing pats of butter on the mixture during baking and then had to place the dessert under the broiler for a couple of minutes at the end. Fortunately, I was able to salvage the cobbler.
