Do ever have extra berries left over at the end of the week? I usually buy some sort of fruit to eat at either breakfast or as a snack throughout the day. My fruit 90% of the time is some sort of berry including blueberry, strawberry, and blackberry. I’m not a big raspberry fan in regards to fresh berries. I feel like half the time they have no flavor and they are usually end up having a mushy texture.
I don’t always end up finishing up my berries at the end of the week and many times they end up just going bad because I buy new ones for the upcoming week during my weekend grocery shopping trip.
Luckily the past two weeks I have found a resolution to this problem. Berry Cobbler. I’ve used this recipe for my excess blackberries two weeks ago and strawberries this week.
It’s a simple recipe that calls for most things that you already have in your pantry to make a delicious dessert for you and the hubby or roommate to enjoy.
1 -1 1/2 tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons brown sugar, packed
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, cold, cut into pieces
2 tablespoons rolled oats
3 tablespoons pecans, toasted chopped
2. For the filling, toss all ingredients together and split between the two ramekins.
3. For the topping mix flour and brown sugar in a bowl. Add butter, cut into small pieces, and toss to coat. Mix with fingers until crumbly. Mix in the oats and the nuts. Divide evenly over the berries. Gently press to make sure none of the topping slides off.
4. Place both ramekins on a baking sheet. Place in the preheated oven and bake about 20 minutes or until top is golden and crisp.
5. Let sit for 15 minutes to cool.
6. Serve with whipped cream or ice cream.
It’s a quick and easy treat and helps use what you have and eliminates waste. What could be better?
