Servings 6 -8 servings


  • 2 cups fresh strawberries quartered
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 1 cup raspberries
  • 1 T fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 cup sugar divided
  • 1/2 cup butter melted
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 T baking powder
  • 1/4 t salt
  • 1 cup milk


  • Preheat the oven to 375.
  • In a large pot, over medium heat, combine the strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, lemon juice and 1/2 cup sugar. Simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally and delicately. Set aside.
  • In a mixing bowl add the flour, 1 cup sugar, baking powder and salt- whisk until combined. Add the milk and whisk just until it comes together- do not over whisk. Set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, melt the butter.
  • Time to assemble: Pour the melted butter into your baking pan . Pour the batter on top of the butter - DO NOT STIR! Carefully pour the berry mixture on top of the batter- DO NOT STIR!
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes until the batter has risen to the top and is golden brown and the berries are bubbling and are thick and syrupy.
  • Let the berry cobbler sit at room temp. for 30 minutes to cool before serving, this will also allow the berry mixture to thicken slightly.
  • Enjoy with some vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.


BAKING PAN: You can make this cobbler dessert in a 9x13x2 baking dish. 
I like to make mine in a slightly smaller oval casserole baking dish. It is around 8x12x2. This yields a thicker layer of berries and cake.
Warning: If you go any smaller than an 8x12x2 the cake and berries will spill over the edge of your baking pan, unless it is deeper than 2 inches.
