Bumbleberry Cobbler


When I was a little girl we used to stay outside all day long and play.  One of the things we did the most was ride bicycles.  We used to have this blackberry bush at the corner of our house.  There is a hill on the side of my Mom and Dad's house and we used to go around the house with our bikes.  Well more times than I can count someone would end up in that blackberry bush.  Over the years it grew and we enjoyed the berries so much.  Sadly my parents decided it was time to do away with it and cut it down.  I am sure to them it was getting unruly.  To this day when I see blackberries I think of that bush and the many times I had to somehow climb out of it when I crashed into it. Its funny how a simple little berry can bring back such a memory. 



Bumbleberry is just mixed berries. I had heard the term before but never really knew what it meant. A friend of mine who makes and sells her own jams and jellies told me what it meant. She sells bumbleberry jam at our local farmers markets. I can say I have bought one and my daughter loves it. I accidentally picked up a frozen bag of mixed fruit at the store and was not sure what to do with it. Bumbleberry Cobbler was what I came up with.  I have to say this turned out really good. This has raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, and strawberries in it.  How can it not be good? 

Put a stick of butter in your casserole dish and place in a 350 degree oven to melt.  In the meantime, combine the flour, 1 cup of sugar and milk.  Once its melted remove from the oven and pour the batter mix over the butter, do not stir.


Add the berries on top of the butter and batter mixture, again do not stir!



Put the casserole dish into the oven for 55 minutes. The batter will cook up over the berries. 



Once its done, let it cool and serve.  I could not wait I had to try it.  It was still warm and a scoop of vanilla ice cream would have taken this over the top! However, I did not have any. Next time I will be prepared.


Served Up With Love!

Yum! This looks great. I've never heard the term bumbleberry--but I like it. Makes sense to me! And I loved your blackberry story and how seeing them makes you think about riding bikes and playing outside.

I remember playing outside all day too. We'd play until our mothers would call us in for supper. Do kids still do that?

Thanks for reading the feature, visiting my blog, and leaving such sweet comments. I appreciate your support and encouragement!

I think if kids now adays played outside they wouldnt be so overweight, or alergic. I love the recipe and will try it soon.
