RECIPE // Ten Minute Berry Cobbler

I know it sounds like an odd name for Berry Cobbler. But here is how the name came about. When I published my own cookbook a few year’s back, I knew I would include my berry cobbler recipe. I had probably made it fifty times for my family and friends and served it at many dinner parties. When I went to title the recipe in the book I couldn’t call it “My Berry Cobbler”. The recipe is actually one that my best friend created. She shared it with me and I loved it so much that I made it like a gazillion times. In fact, I made it so many times that all of our friends started calling it “Leslie’s Berry Cobbler”! But I wanted to give credit to the creator of the recipe. So I decided to name it, “Mary Liz’s (not Leslie’s) Berry Cobbler”.

The entire recipe has only six ingredients. (And you really need to use frozen berries, not fresh ones. I promise it is better with frozen!) It really only takes about ten minutes to make. Of course, it does need to cook in the oven for about forty minutes.

P.S. I just had to put in here that I gave up sweets about three years back (I will share that story sometime) so I haven’t had this fabulous cobbler for a long time. Right now I am sitting in my house and it smells like berry cobbler everywhere. Including upstairs and in my backyard! And it’s killing me.

If you make this recipe, please let me know what you think. Just knowing you got to enjoy this fabulous dessert will make me very happy. It will almost be as good as having some myself!

  1. I make a similar recipe for an apple crumble topping but use soft brown sugar (light). Not sure what this is called in USA – it’s like icing sugar with molasses addded. I also often use this sugar in a custard. It gives an almost caramel flavour. Yummy.
    Glad you enjoyed your trip to New Zealand.

  2. Yummy! I’m making this tonight. My husband loves blueberry cobbler and I know he’s going to love this!

    -Also, I love that you actually use your Rae Dunn!????

  3. I made it for Christmas. It was good but was extremely sweet, so the next time I make it I’ll cut out lots of the sugar. The fruit is sweet enough, so what can I add to replace the sugar I take out?
