This Blueberry and Blackberry Cobbler is the perfect Summer dessert. It combines tangy with sweet, soft with crunchy, plus it’s ridiculously easy!
Last year on Father’s Day, I made my dad a meal that he still talks about. This year, I was in a time crunch, and was only able to make dessert. But it wasn’t ‘just’ dessert. It was his favorite dessert. Berry cobbler.
This Father’s Day we spent the day running around the house getting things done and getting our house ready for wedding week. We have a lot of family coming into town, and our house will surely be utilized for family time. After all of the laundry, cleaning, organizing and so on, I sat down to write up my first guest blog post.
I was asked to write an article for the travel website, trivago, where I would feature some of the best Tampa restaurants, and the healthier options on their menus. I was so excited to share the photos of yummy food I’d tried, and spread the word of Tampa eats, that the words just flowed right out of me. Don’t you love when that happens?
When we all finished our respective tasks, we settled down, turned up some relaxing music, and enjoyed a family meal. My mother made a big batch of spaghetti and meatballs. Since we were having such a traditional dinner, I thought, why not make a traditional dessert?
Blueberry and Blackberry Cobbler
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 stick butter, softened
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 4, 6oz boxes of berries
- Preheat the oven to 375.
- Grease a 9x6 baking dish and pour the berries in. Mix with your hands.
- Begin to beat the butter, sugar and vanilla until well combined.
- Slowly add flour and baking powder. Continue to beat until the mixture reaches a crumb-like texture.
- Drizzle the berries with the dough evenly atop the dish.
- Bake for 30 minutes.
- Serve with vanilla ice cream on top!
Despite the fact that spaghetti and meatballs are an Italian tradition, the cobbler went perfect with the meal as a whole. Berry Cobbler is such an American tradition, especially during the summertime. Well… it might be one of those foods that has anything but an American background, but hey, we eat it a lot in the States, so to me, it’s tradition.
This is the perfect dessert to make for a crowd, or even for a small group, because then you got yourself a ton of leftovers! What’s better than that?
