Brown Sugar Mixed Berry Cobbler
Thought this would a perfect dessert for the Grandchildren
AND I was right… they loved it
As it is winter here, I used frozen berries, in fact I love Frozen berries
especially for baking
When I was young, I really loved it when my Mother made a hot dessert
Steamed puddings, Fruit pies, Lemon Delicious Pudding
Cobbler is not really a New Zealand Tradition, but I'm always trying something new
After all it is just scones /dumplings on top of cooked fruit!
This recipe feeds 6-8, I halved it for the 4 of us. It was enough
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 kg of frozen mixed berries
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
Rounded 1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 sticks cold unsalted butter, cut into pieces
3/4 cup whole milk
1 teaspoon granulated sugar
plus 1 teaspoon packed dark brown sugar
Preheat oven to 200C with rack in middle.
Stir together brown sugar and cornstarch in a large bowl.
Add berries and toss to coat.
Add butter and blend with your fingertips or a pastry blender
until mixture resembles coarse meal with some roughly pea-size butter lumps.
Bake cobbler until topping is golden, 25 to 30 minutes.
Some cream or ice ream
and an excellent dessert is on the table
