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.
