Triple Berry Cobbler

This is a recipe I came up with when I found the triple berry bag of frozen berries at Aldi.
They were practically begging me to put them in a cobbler.
So I did.

Here's how you can do it ... easy peasy.

For a 9x13-size cobbler, you'll need the following ingredients:

2 bags of the frozen triple berries - it's blackberries, strawberries & blueberries
{can't remember for sure, but I think they are sold in a 10 oz. bag - around $2.69 each}

1 cup each:  self-rising flour, granulated sugar, & milk

1 tsp. vanilla extract

2 Tbsp. butter

Simmer the frozen berries on the stove top until they are softened ... approx. 15-20 mins.
OR, throw them in a microwavable dish & zap them for 3 or 4 minutes until thawed.
That works just as well when you're in a hurry.
I usually sprinkle a bit of granulated sugar over them as they are simmering ...
maybe a 1/4 cup or so.

While the berries are doing their berry thing, in a mixing bowl, stir together
the flour & sugar ... then adding the milk & vanilla.

Pour the berries into a 9x13 baking dish.
Evenly pour the batter over the berries.
Dot the butter here & there over the top.
Bake at 350 for approx. 35-45 minutes.
Keep your eye on it ... you want the batter to be baked through & slightly
browned on top, but not over-baked.

This would be an excellent dessert to make sugar free.
Just substitute Splenda for the sugar {same amount listed on the recipe}.

Serve warm with ice cream over top.
Serve warm with milk drizzled over top.
Serve plain ... or serve cold.
Any which way you serve it up, it's BERRY good!

  3. Found you on Raising Homemakers! This looks great! I've got a big back of blackberries from the Pungo Blueberry Farm (I know - they have lots of berries!) Great idea!

  4. Hello Sara =)
    Thank you for the comment!
    A berry farm, well, I can't think of anything much better than that.
    If we had one near us, I'd be a frequent customer!
