What you will need to bake you Mixed Berry Cobbler

The beauty of cobbler is both how rustic it is, and how easy it is to bake. With a few simple steps you will be serving up this taste of summer.

  • Mixed Berry Cobbler Fruit Filling:
  • 1 cup blackberries
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 3 cups strawberries, hulled and sliced
  • 1 cup raspberries (Optional: 1 cup diced rhubarb)
  • Juice of 1 orange
  • 4 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • Topping:
  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk (or dairy-free milk + 1 tsp vinegar)
  • 5 tbsp butter (or dairy-free alternative)
  • 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Zest of 1 orange
  • 1 tbsp granulated sugar (for sprinkling)

Let’s Get Baking

Preheat the Oven: Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit to ensure it’s ready when you’re finished preparing the cobbler.

Prepare the Fruit Filling: In a large mixing bowl, combine the blackberries, blueberries, sliced strawberries, raspberries, diced rhubarb (if using), orange juice, cornstarch, granulated sugar, and light brown sugar. Gently toss the ingredients together until the fruit is evenly coated with the sugar and cornstarch mixture.

Make the Buttermilk: If using regular milk, mix 3/4 cup of milk with 1 teaspoon of vinegar to create a homemade buttermilk substitute. Alternatively, use dairy-free milk if preferred.

Prepare the Topping: In a separate mixing bowl, combine the gluten-free flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, kosher salt, and orange zest. Cut the cold butter into small pieces and add it to the dry ingredients. Using a fork or pastry cutter, cut the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.

Add Wet Ingredients: Pour the buttermilk and vanilla extract into the flour mixture and gently mix until just combined. Be careful not to overmix, as this can result in tough biscuits.

Assemble the Cobbler: Transfer the prepared fruit filling into a 9×13-inch baking dish, spreading it out evenly. Use a spoon to drop dollops of the biscuit topping over the fruit, covering it as much as possible. Sprinkle the top of the biscuit dough with 1 tablespoon of granulated sugar for a sweet, golden finish.

Bake the Cobbler: Place the assembled cobbler in the preheated oven and bake for 45-55 minutes, or until the fruit is bubbling and the biscuit topping is golden brown and cooked through.

Let it Rest: Once baked, remove the cobbler from the oven and allow it to cool for at least 20 minutes before serving. This allows the juices to thicken slightly and makes for easier serving.

Serve and Enjoy: Serve the Mixed Berry Cobbler warm, either on its own or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream for an extra indulgent treat. Enjoy the delicious flavors of summer in every bite!
