Tuesdays With Dorie: Mixed Berry Cobbler

serving of cobbler

[recipe here]

I was really excited to make this cobbler (chosen by Beth of Our Sweet Life), mostly because it seemed pretty easy to do, and I have been pressed for time lately (wedding is now a month away!). Because of the many warnings on the TWD blog about the crust being flavorless, I decided to use turbinado sugar instead of regular sugar and also added a bit of cinnamon.

Side note, I am loving Supreme Spices! Found them via Cupcake Project.

The cobbler came together pretty quickly and easily, not too fussy. I ended up using a 7.5" round casserole instead of the called-for 9" deep dish pie pan, but I used the same amount of fruit, so there was a higher berry-to-crust ratio.

(I'm not really sure what the point was of cutting slits in the top, because mine all fused together, but the hole in the middle was pretty useful.)

before baking

In all, I thought the end result was very tasty! I think the berries I used were maybe a bit too sour (I used frozen raspberries and blueberries), so next time I would add in a bit extra sugar in the filling (or serve with ice cream... I just never have it in the apartment!).

A. really liked it as it was, and even had it for breakfast the next morning, though it was starting to get a bit gooey :)

finished cobbler again

As for the smoking oven last week, apparently I needed to clean out my oven. Learned that the hard way after another bout with the smoke alarm. DUH.

Also... sorry to A.'s coworkers, but the last few TWD's have been of the "eat it the day it's made" variety. Some Apple Cheddar Scones might be coming your way soon!

As always, check out the TWD blogroll for more baking experiences! You can find Dorie's recipe online here, and also in her wonderful book, Baking: from my home to yours.

Serve with ice cream would be my vote. But then again I love ice cream with cobbler. Yours turned out lovely.

love the drippy picture and fingerprint...looks so tasty!
ice cream is amust, but you are too smart to not keep it around! what a temptation!

Natashya said...

I can't believe you don't keep ice cream in the house. What do you eat when you are sad, happy, bored, tired, hot, or hungry?
Oh, nice looking cobblers, by the way.

Barbara said...

Gorgeous! The sprinkling of cinnamon on top is really lovely.

Have you heard of Penzey's (www.penzeys.com) for spices? I'm lucky enough to live near one of their stores, but they also do mail order. No cinnamon extract, though. Sounds good, I'll have to check it out.

lauren said...

Your crust looks fabulous! And pure cinnamon extract, wow!

Turbinado sugar and cinnamon would make this even better! Thanks for the tip. I like the drip on the side of the dish in your first photo! Isn't it nice to have an easy TWD recipe?!
