Whats the difference between a cobbler, a crisp, and a crumble?

Cobblers, crumbles, and crisps are all baked desserts of fresh or canned fruit topped with some kind of pastry. The fruit juices bubble up into the pastry as it bakes, caramelizing the sugars and creating delicious little bites of dessert.

Cobblers have a biscuit topping along with the fresh or canned fruit. The biscuits are usually dropped onto the fruit in small rounds, giving it the appearance of a cobbled road giving the dessert its name. Cobblers can also be made with cake batter or cookie dough instead of biscuit.

Crumbles and crisps are very similar – they both contain fresh or canned fruit with a streusel-like topping that gets baked until the fruit is cooked. Crisps contain oats and crumbles do not. In an actual crisp, as in apple crisp or strawberry crisp, the oats in the topping crisp up as it bakes, hence the name. The names are often used interchangeably.

What Do I Need To Make This Lemon Berry Cobbler Recipe?

You’ll need:

  • self rising flour
  • sugar
  • milk
  • butter
  • lemon extract
  • lemons
  • raspberries
  • blackberries

Pro Tip: Self-rising flour is all-purpose flour with baking powder and salt added. To make your own, all you have to do is combine 1 cup of all-purpose flour with 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon of salt.  You can also purchase pre-mixed all purpose flour.

Which Stand Mixer Attachment Should I Use To Mix The Batter?

For this recipe I recommend using the paddle attachment.

Although the beaters on most hand mixers more closely resemble the KitchenAid’s whisk attachment, the paddle is right for most jobs on the stand mixer.

The Paddle attachment is used for:

  • combining heavy cookie batter and doughs
  • mixing cake batters
  • muffins
  • mashed potatoes
  • quick breads

The Wire Whisk Is Used For Incorporating Air Into:

  • eggs
  • egg whites
  • whipping cream
  • some candies
  • angel food cake
  • mayonnaise

The Dough Hook is used for kneading yeast dough such as:

  • bread
  • coffee cakes
  • pizza dough
  • buns
  • pasta dough

Cobbler Q&A

Can I Make Lemon Berry Cobbler Recipe Ahead of Time?

Cobbler can be baked 6 hours ahead and cooled completely, uncovered, then chilled, covered. Before serving, let stand at room temperature 1 hour, then reheat in a preheated 350°F oven until warm, about 20 minutes

Can I leave a cobbler out on the counter?

Usually baked goods (cakes, pies, cookies, etc.) are fine to keep at room temp for a couple days, just make sure it’s covered tightly. Cobbler, fruit/nut pies, cookies, cakes etc. are fine to leave on the counter tightly wrapped for two or three days.

Can I alter the fruit?

Yes!  Try peaches, strawberries, blueberries, apples – whatever you have on hand and love.  You can even used canned pie filling, frozen fruit, or canned fruits.
