This cobbler was a staple dessert made by my mother and passed down to me, and it is simple to whip up in 10 minutes and have ready to eat in about another 30 – and it’s easy and fun for the kids to help with! My personal favorite is a mix of blackberries and peaches, but red or black raspberries or sour cherries are other great options. *We now sell all of these ingredients in our market!


  • 34 cups of fresh berries (Frozen berries can be substituted, but you will need to reduce liquid or increase baking time.)
  • ½ lemon or lime
  • 1 ½ cups flour (unbleached or all purpose)
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • ¾ to 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 ½ cups milk
  • 1 ½ tsp vanilla
  • 6 Tbsp melted butter


  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Grease 9×13 baking dish.
  2. Wash fruit and set aside to drain. (If using frozen fruit, do not thaw first.)
  3. Whisk together all dry ingredients. (The original recipe calls for 1 ½ cups of sugar – but we reduce it to ¾ cup!)
  4. Add milk and vanilla and whisk until smooth.
  5. Pour this batter into greased baking dish.
  6. Squeeze lemon into berries and give a quick stir. Distribute fruit on top of batter.
  7. *We like ours chockfull of fruit (4 cups/1quart), but it does make the baking time a little longer due to the extra juice.
  8. Melt butter and drizzle over top.
  9. Bake for 25-35 minutes or until golden brown on top. (Can take 35-40 if using a larger amount of fruit.)
  10. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream, or our go to – whipped Kreider’s Heavy Cream with a dash of vanilla, and perhaps a sprinkle of sugar and/or cinnamon. All the flavor of vanilla ice cream, but little to no sugar!
