TWD - Mixed Berry Cobbler



The TWD recipe this week of mixed berry cobbler was picked by Beth of Our Sweet Life. I have never made cobbler before. In NZ we tend to make crumbles rather than cobblers. I had read on the comments that some of the TWDers thought the recipe too bland, so I kept that in mind when making it.



I decided to make only 1/3 of the recipe which worked quite well. I made it in a small ceramic dish, using frozen blueberries and raspberries as the base. Dividing the recipe by 3 meant that there was only 1 tbsp of sugar in the topping. Bearing in mind the comments that it wasn’t sweet enough, I added another tbsp of sugar, effectively doubling the sugar in the topping. I cooked the pudding for about 25 minutes.



I really liked the pudding. I ate mine with thickened cream. It was delicious straight out of the oven when the topping was lovely and crunchy. I tried a spoonful from the fridge this morning, but it didn’t taste as good as cold crumble. I am not sure that I am a cobbler convertee, but it was nice for a change. See what the other TWDers thought here.



Following on from yesterday, today’s Rockin’ Girl Blogger award goes to a fellow TWDer, Stephanie of A Whisk and Spoon. Stephanie is my blogging idol! She writes fabulously, is a great cook and takes the most awesome photos. Thanks for being so inspiring Stephanie!

I bet this would be lovely with a bit of thickened cream or creme fraiche. And I'm with Amy... the golden topping is gorgeous.

Oh well, even if you are not a convert now you can say you had it. It looks great.

Cold cobbler probably wasn't that good...I like mine warm. Yours turned out lovely though.

I love the vivid colours of your cobbler. The blueberries were a great idea with the raspberries.

Your cobbler sure looks delicious, whether you're a convert or not! Well done!

Jules Someone said...

Looks delicious. I think they are probably better warm than straight from the fridge. And they need ice cream.

Rigby said...

Your cobbler looks wonderful! Such a nice golden color on the top :)

Barbara said...

Look lovely! Yes, the biscuit topping doesn't keep all that well. Best served to a large group so it all gets eaten up right away!

Susie Homemaker said...

Pamela said...

Nice job. It was tasty, wasn't it?

Jaime said...

looks great! what is a crumble? is that like a crisp?

Tammy said...

Jaime, a crumble is a mixture of flour and sugar with the butter rubbed in to make a crumble topping - or you can add rolled oats, spices, ground nuts, coconut etc. you just sprinkle the crumble over the fruit and bake like for a cobbler
