What is Mixed Berry Cobbler?

This mixed berry cobbler is a ridiculously easy dessert that’s always a hit! A mixture of blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, and blackberries (and a little sugar and lemon zest!) is simply baked under a sweet, crumbly topping. When it’s finished you have an irresistible bubbly and juicy filling and a crispy, buttery topping that you’ll want to dig right into! It’s perfect for pairing with a big scoop of ice cream or a dollop of sweet whipped cream. 

Mixed berry cobbler is our go-to when we’re looking to make a dessert that’s fairly effortless and absolutely delicious. Whether you’re having a casual night in, throwing a summer BBQ, or just need a sweet pick-me-up, this cobbler has got you covered!

Ingredients You Need

Topping:

  • All-purpose flour – The flour gives the topping its structure. For a gluten-free option try using a 1:1 substitute like Bob’s Red Mill.
  • Granulated sugar – We add just a bit of sugar to sweeten up the topping. 
  • Baking powder – This helps the topping rise beautifully, making it fluffy and delicious.
  • Baking soda – Baking soda works together with the baking powder to give our topping an extra lift.
  • Salt – Just a pinch enhances all the flavors, making everything pop!
  • Cold unsalted butter – Those little chunks melt into the topping, creating a lovely, flaky texture.
  • Milk – Brings everything together into a smooth batter that bakes up golden and scrumptious!
  • Turbinado sugar or coarse sugar – We love sprinkling this type of sugar on top for a bit of crunchiness and a touch of sparkle.

Filling:

  • Blueberries – These little gems burst with sweetness and color — we think they’re a must-have in any filling for a berry cobbler!
  • Strawberries – Slicing these makes them easy to mix in and we adore the juicy, summery flavor they add.
  • Raspberries – The tartness of raspberries is the perfect contrast to the sweeter berries!
  • Blackberries – Blackberries add more fruity goodness, but we love their texture, too.
  • Granulated sugar – We use just a bit of sugar to sweeten the filling just a bit — you can adjust to your own preferences.
  • Lemon zest – The concentrated lemon flavor in the zest brightens up the whole cobbler!

How to Make Mixed Berry Cobbler

  1. Combine Dry Ingredients. Add the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt to a large bowl and stir together until completely combined. 
  2. Incorporate Butter. Place the diced butter in the mixture and use a pastry cutter or your hands to combine until crumbs form. 
  3. Add Milk. Pour the milk into the mixture and stir until just combined, leaving some lumps in the mixture. 
  4. Make the Filling. Add all of the ingredients for the filling into a large bowl and stir until combined. 
  5. Assemble. Pour the filling into the baking dish before adding the cobbler mixture and sprinkling with sugar. 
  6. Bake. Place the dish in the preheated oven and bake for the recommended time. 
  7. Serve. Allow the cobbler to cool slightly before serving with ice cream, if desired.

Variations

  • Fruit – Add or swap some of the fruits. Some good options to try are apples, peaches, and cherries. 
  • Nuts – Fold walnuts, pistachios, or pecans into the topping. 
  • Spices – Add nutmeg, cinnamon, or allspice for warm flavor. 
  • Herbs – For fresh, herbal flavor, add some basil or mint to the filling. 
  • Cheese – Spoon a few dollops of cream cheese or mascarpone over the filling before adding the topping for a rich filling!

Can I Store Leftovers? 

Once the cobbler has cooled, you can definitely store it! Then, you can enjoy leftovers cold or warmed in the oven or microwave.

Cover the cobbler with plastic wrap or aluminum foil and place in the fridge for 3-5 days.

To store for even longer, freeze the cobbler for up to 3 months. It may be easiest to store it in individual servings that can be quickly thawed and easily reheated.

    Unfortunately this recipe didn’t work out for me. I tried doubling the recipe and the cobbler top never cooked through – even after over an hour in the oven. We told guests to stick to the edges (to avoid the underbaked top) and the berry portion was very runny. I wish I had reduced the berries into a compote before adding to the pan or even had a cake layer at the bottom.
