Jumbleberry Cobbler

Who doesn’t like a good old cobbler fresh out of the oven with a dollop of cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top?

Who doesn’t like a bunch of fresh berries? Who doesn’t like both of these things put together?

I’ve had peach cobbler and I found myself craving it, but of course, I didn’t have any peaches, canned, fresh or frozen. What I did have was a delicious array of berries just waiting to be eaten, hence, my  cobbler.

Here’s what you need to make yourself a delicious cobbler, and you can switch up the fruit, of course.

1 cup flour

1 cup sugar + extra to sprinkle over the batter

1 cup milk

1 egg

1/4 cup melted butter

1 t baking powder

3 cups berries

Preheat your oven to 350 F. Grease a medium sized baking dish and spread the berries out evenly. In a medium mixing bowl whisk the flour, sugar and baking powder. Add in the milk, egg and melted butter and whisk till combined. Pour the batter over the fruit and bake for about 30 minutes, take out the baking dish and sprinkle some sugar over the top and return the dish to the oven and bake for another 15 minutes or till the batter has set and turned golden brown on top. Usually eggs aren’t added to a cobbler batter, but I found that when I don’t add an egg the batter becomes dense and chewy whereas with an egg the batter is light, fluffy, and rises so much better.

On another note, the pictures have been horrible and few in number lately, but just a few more boxes to unpack(especially the one with my camera) and i’ll be back on track!
