I woke up early today to another rainy New England day. I enjoyed my coffee as usual and then felt a strong desire to do some baking; something I love to do on rainy days.
Don’t you just love the smell of good things baking and the warmth from having the oven going first thing in the morning? I especially enjoy being the only one up and the cozy feeling I get when I know my family is still tucked up in their beds.
Cobbler is one of my family’s favorite treats so I decided to surprise them with this simple triple berry cobbler. I’m using a cast iron skillet to make this recipe and used the last of the frozen berries from last season. I don’t know about you, but I love cooking in a cast iron skillet. There’s just something so old-fashioned about it that gives me a good feeling. I’ve long since given up on non-stick and other kinds of pans. They’re simply not good for your health and they just don’t last, but cast iron will last forever.
This is one of the easiest recipes to make and is sure to make your family very happy. We ended up eating it before it was even lunchtime. What a nice treat on a rainy day.
Tripple Berry Cobbler
Easy tripple berry cobbler made in a cast iron skillet.
- 4 cups Berries (any combination) (I used strawberries, raspberries and blueberries)
- 1 cup Granulated Sugar
- 1/2 cup All purpose flour
- 1 Tbsp Cornstarch
- 1/2 tsp Salt
- 1 Cup All-purpose flour
- 3/4 Cup Rolled Oats
- 1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
- 1/2 tsp Kosher salt
- 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
- 1 1/2 Sticks (3/4 Cup) Cold unsalted butter, cut into cubes
Preheat oven to 375°F
In a 10 inch cast iron skillet, toss together berries, sugar, 1/2 cup flour, cornstarch and salt.
Smooth berry into an even layer.
In a stand mixer with paddle attachment, add the 1 cup flour, oats, sugar, salt and cinnamon.
Add the butter and mix until texture is coarse clumps and mixture will hold together in clumps when you squeeze it with your hand.
Spread topping evenly on top of berry mixture with your hand and press it down lightly.
Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, until the edges are bubbling and the top is golden brown.
Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream! Enjoy!
