Lemon Berry Cobbler

Today I’m sharing this delicious cobbler that I’ve been making for a few years now. It’s light and fluffy with tangy berries mixed in, and it’s incredibly easy! The bright berries and fluffy whip cream is making crave spring!! I call it a cobbler because the original recipe this was inspired by was called a cobbler. However, it seems more like a cake than a cobbler in many ways- kind of a cobbler cake. Moist and fruity like a cobbler but made from a thick batter and bakes up like a cake. I agree with calling it a cobbler over a cake because there is no frosting and it is served with ice cream or whipped cream, in true cobbler form. Whatever it is, it’s good!

I mentioned that it is simple… well it really is. Only a few ingredients, including self-rising flour. You can make your own self rising flour, but I tend to have more luck with just buying it. When I have made my own in the past it doesn’t seem to bake up as fluffy. Maybe it’s my imagination or me justifying the need to buy the flour and skip making my own.

You will notice in the directions, that I save 1/4 C of the butter and pour that directly into the pan rather than mixing it into the batter. By doing this, the butter surrounds the batter and leaves a crunchy salty crust when baked. The savory balances all that sweet out so well. I also sprinkle some sugar on top of the batter… this gives another crunchy crust but sweet instead. I add blackberries and raspberries. Blueberries would be fantastic as well. The lemon extract gives it a nice bright flavor, but if your not into lemon then skip it. It’s not necessary (however it’s quite tasty). Hope you enjoy!

  2. This is my favorite recipe! I made it for my husband and I am it is too die for! We would die if we won the blendtec! We love oh so delicioso!

  3. I love cobbler and I’ve been on a lemon kick lately, so this recipe is right up my alley!! I love this recipe!

  4. This looks so good! My husband isn’t a fan of my mom’s cobbler. (It’s my go to FAVE, and what I grew up eating) so, I’m looking for another cobbler to add to our family stash, that isn’t cake mix and pie filling (because, gross). Can’t wait to try this
