Comfort Food Friday
Happy Friday! In honor of August, the last full month of summer, I am sharing one of my favorite summer dessert recipes: Berry Cobbler in a Skillet. It is easy and delicious and tastes like summer to me. You can make it with a mixture of berries, I tend to use raspberries and blackberries, or you can make it with one type of berries, like blueberries - really, whatever appeals to you.
When I was in middle school and high school, there was a restaurant called Apricots (sadly, it is closed now) in Farmington, Connecticut that was one of my family's favorites for special occasions. The restaurant always had a cobbler of some variety on the dessert menu, depending on what was in season, and I always looked forward to ordering it and eating it at the end of the meal! Unless it had apples, I don't like apples.
Every time I make this cobbler I am reminded of lovely dinners with my family. I hope this cobbler becomes part of happy memories for you too.
Here is the recipe in pictures.
First, the ingredients at a glance.
Pour the berries in the skillet and add the dry ingredients on top. Mix with your fingers until the ingredients are combined and the berries are coated.
It will look something like this when all mixed together.
Now, on to the topping.
Put the oats, flour, sugar, cinnamon, and salt in the mixer bowl and stir together.
Add in the cold butter and turn on the mixer.
The mixture is now able to stick together in clumps when you squeeze it with your hands.
Cover the berries evenly with the crumble topping. The cobbler is now ready to go in the oven.
This is how it looks when you remove it from the oven.
Dessert is served!
