Easy Berry Cobbler

Adapted from a Betty Crocker recipe

Want cobbler in 20 minutes? This recipe could be a dangerous thing. I don’t even have flour at my apartment right now let alone baking powder. This recipe uses Bisquick mix and frozen berries. Meaning you can have fresh warm cobbler every night…

Makes 2 big servings. I bake these in a 4 cup, glass tupperware bowl (or the yellow Snapware). Perfect for saving leftovers (rare, but it happens).

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 cups frozen mixed berries (raspberry blackberry blueberry)
  • 1/4 heaping cup of brown sugar
  • 1 tbs water
  • 1/2 tbs corn starch
  • 1/2 cup Bisquick mix
  • 3/4 tbs of butter, melted but not heated (nuke until mostly melted, then stir until fully melted)
  • 2 tbs whole milk (I use the half and half I keep in my fridge for coffee..)

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 430F
  2. In a medium sized sauce pan, add berries, corn starch, sugar, water.
  3. Turn heat to medium and stir until sugar dissolves and berry mixture begins to congeal and thicken. Do not use high heat as it will burn. **Carefully dip in a clean spoon and taste! Adjust sugar as needed. If too sweet, add a squeeze of lemon juice. Note that the mixture should coat the back of the spoon and not run off. If it looks too watery, add more corn starch, a pinch at a time.
  4. When berries begin to bubble, let it boil for 1 minute then turn heat off and pour mixture into 4 cup baking dish.
  5. in a small mixing bowl, add Bisquick, lightly melted butter, and milk. stir until JUST combined into a dough. If it is still crumbly, add a dash more milk. DO NOT over mix.
  6. With a large flat spoon, plop small sections of dough into berry mixture.
  7. Place on flat baking pan (in case it bubbles over) and bake in oven for 15 minutes. Mixture will be bubbling and edges of the dough will have baked to a nice golden brown.
  8. Serve with ice cream or a dash of cold cream! Tastes good cold the next day, too.
