Apple Cider Pudding Cake

Apple Cider Pudding Cake, served

When I think about pudding cakes, I picture a dessert that forms a pudding-like sauce at the bottom of the pan during baking. Chocolate pudding cake and lemon pudding cake are to of my very favorite recipes of this type. Throw some fruit into the mix and you have something that is a little closer to a cobbler than to one of those pudding cake ... Read More »

Blackberry Cranberry Sauce Cobbler

Cranberry Sauce Cobbler

Cranberry sauce can be a great addition to a cobbler or crisp recipe. The basic cranberry sauce recipe calls for whole berries and sugar, which are also the two main ingredients in most fruit cobbler recipes (although you can use fruits besides berries, of course!). The cranberry sauce is already cooked, so it isn’t necessarily a great choice on its own to serve as the ... Read More »

Blueberry Apple Crisp

Blueberry Apple Crisp

In spite of the fact that I love to have apple pie around the 4th of July, I find that I often think of apple desserts as fall desserts. This is probably because there are far fewer fresh fruits to choose from at the end of the year when you compare the season with spring, when you have a plethora of in-season berries and stone ...

Mango and Blackberry Cobbler

What kind of fruit do you put in cobblers? I tend to use apples and cherries a lot, but will try ti mix it up with different berries from time to time, depending on what’s in season or what frozen berries I have in my freezer that need to be used up. I usually turn to berries by default, but realistically you can put just ... Read More »

Streusel Topped Banana Bread Cobbler

Streusel Topped Banana Bread Cobbler

I saw a photo of a Banana Bread Cobbler in an issue of Southern Living and immediately knew I had to give it a try, since I am a big fan of both cobblers and banana bread. As I read through the recipe, I realized it wasn’t what I expected it to be. I assumed it would be something along the lines of a bread ... Read More »

Pear and Cranberry Cobbler

Pear and Cranberry Cobbler

Pears don’t always get the appreciation they deserve when it comes to baking. A ripe pear is juicy and tender, and no matter how tasty, it can be difficult to imagine a ripe pear holding up as well as an apple in a pie or cobbler or other fruit-heavy dish. But pears can really shine in baked goods, with their sweet and delicate flavor. The ... Read More »

Fig and Plum Cobbler

Fig and Plum Cobbler

Fresh figs are a very easy fruit to work with because they need very little prep to use them and are naturally very sweet. This natural sweetness makes figs very tasty, but it also makes them pair well with other fruits, as the jammy flavor of the figs can enhance fruits of similar flavors and add sweetness to other fruits that don’t have much of ...

Cherry Nectarine Brown Betty

Cherry Nectarine Brown Betty with ice cream

A brown betty is a fruit dessert that is similar in concept to a cobbler. It has fruit baked underneath a sweetened topping, usually made of bread or cake crumbs. There are tons of variations on this dessert, mostly centering on how the fruit and topping ingredients should be combined, whether layered or mixed. I’ve had brown bettys that looked just like cobblers and ones ... Read More »
