Farm to Table - Fresh Fruit Cobbler

Berries of all types are at their peak right now, and there are so many ways to take advantage of their goodness - from fresh, to smoothies, to signature cocktails. But if you're in the mood for a truly sweet treat, I have a dessert recipe that's quick, simple, and always a favorite - fresh fruit cobbler.


It's a Southern recipe, so be warned (it involves butter + sugar in generous amounts). But knowing this recipe is a decadence, I serve it in small portions and typically will only splurge on it one time a year. However it is quite tasty, so I give you permission to eat as much as you'd like!

This cobbler works wonderfully with any fresh fruit, so use it for whatever fruit is currently in season.
 


Gather together the following:
  • 2C fresh fruit of choice, sliced if necessary
  • 1C all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 - 1C white sugar
  • 1C milk (the sweetness of almond milk makes it another good option)
  • 1 stick butter
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 325 degrees


Melt butter in a 9x9 baking dish

Mix dry ingredients


Add milk + extract


Mix well

Pour batter into the melted butter


Spread fresh fruit on top


Place in oven. Bake for 1 hour or until nicely browned along the edges. The melted butter will gently cook into the batter, creating a wonderfully crisp + chewy outer crust.


So simple, yet so very tasty!


As a perfect compliment, top with a bit more fresh fruit. And if you really want to go on the deep end of delicious, add a dollop of fresh cream. The combination is exquisite!

Is your basil is producing as well as mine right now? If so, you may also enjoy my Fresh Basil Pesto recipe. Wicked easy!
