It’s alright to mix up the seasonal menu now and again by creating dishes out of the ordinary as a change up from the usual warm-weather favorites.
It’s true for many fruits that the summer months are their ideal season. However, eating fruit plain can be boring and bland on a hot day.
This summer, when heading to an event like a family reunion, picnic or just a day at home, try making this Oh-So-Berry Cobbler.
It’s served warm and is a perfect sweet treat when berries are at their freshest. Full of summer goodness, it’s a treat for everyone to enjoy with strawberries, blackberries, blueberries and a splash of lemon juice served with ice cream.
To make this Oh-So-Berry Cobbler, combine strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, and lemon juice in a mixing bowl. Add cornstarch and mix again until the berries are coated.
In a separate mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt.
In a mixer, add butter, brown sugar, vanilla extract then gradually add flour mixture. Mix until crumbles form.
Add fruit to a baking pan and cover with crumble mixture. Bake at 350 F for 30-40 minutes.
