Ingredients

for the berries

  • 2.5 pounds mixed berries (about 10 cups)
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest (about 1/2 lemon)
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar

for the topping

  • 1 1/3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 7 Tablespoons butter, cold and cut into pieces
  • 2/3 cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F and use 1 Tablespoon of the butter (you’ll need the other 7 Tablespoons for the topping!) to butter a 9 x 13 in pan. You can use any medium/large size dish to make this cobbler, so feel free to use. whatever you have on hand.
  2. Add all the ingredients for the berry filling to your dish and use your hands or two wooden spoons to mix everything together. Once the berries are evenly coated, set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Use a pastry cutter to cut the butter into the dry ingredients until the mixture starts to clump up. It’s okay to still have big chunks of butter throuhout.
  4. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add the buttermilk and vanilla extract. Stir everything together until it forms a wet biscuit dough. It will be sticky at first, but it will thicken as it sits.
  5. Use two large spoons to drop the biscuit dough into big clumps over the berry filling. Sprinkle sugar over the topping. This will give your topping a golden crunchy finish.
  6. Place in the oven to bake for 1 hour or until the berry filling is bubbling and the topping is golden brown and relatively firm to the touch.
  7. Allow to cool for 10 minutes before serving hot with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
