It’s peak berry season around here so I had to make something good with all of these fresh berries around. I ran to my local farmer’s market last week and got 3 pints of berries for just $8, and food out here is expensive, that was easily more than half off what I could find at the store. You should really check your farmer’s market out if you haven’t already. They’ve got some great stuff, and you can make some amazing deals. I like to run to mine in the last 1/2 hour each week and see what I can pick up with just a few bucks in my pocket. I’ll keep going to the very last dollar. Like last week, I got a couple huge, locally and organically grown zucchini for $1, it was totally worth it.
While trying to decide what to make with these lovely berries I was reminded of a camping trip several years ago. We really wanted to make cobbler but all we had was a can of blueberries and pancake mix. My mom and aunt Tammy went to the little gas station we were camping next to and were able to find sugar, but that was it. So with a dutch oven, berries, and some sweetened pancake mix they made some of the best cobbler I’ve ever tasted. It was so simple and good. So, I thought I’d try to make a slightly healthier version using very ripe fresh berries, some buttermilk, and almond meal. I basically made homemade whole wheat pancakes and poured the batter over the fresh berries. It turned out very good, wholesome, filling, and I didn’t feel guilty about eating it for dessert and breakfast the next day.
- 1 Pint Blueberries
- 1 Pint Blackberries
- ½ Pint Raspberries
- ¼ Cup Sugar (for Berries)
- ½ Cup Flour
- ½ Cup Almond Meal (or whole wheat flour)
- ½ Cup Buttermilk
- ¼ Cup Milk
- ½ tsp. Baking Powder
- ½ tsp. Baking Soda
- ¼ tsp. Salt
- ¼ Cup Sugar
- ½ tsp. Cinnamon
- ¼ tsp. Vanilla
- Preheat oven to 350.
- Rinse fresh berries and place in a bowl with ¼ cup sugar, stir, and set aside.
- Combine all of the remaining ingredients in a large mixing bowl with a spoon to create the cobbler topping.
- Spray an 8″ pie dish or 8×8″ baking pan with baking spray. Place the prepared berries on the bottom and top with the cobbler batter evenly.
- Bake for approx. 30 minutes.
Use fresh and very ripe berries for this dessert for the best flavor.
Enjoy the Cobbler with ice cream or whipped cream for an added treat.
