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 »

Cherry Cornmeal Cobbler

Cherry Cornmeal Cobbler

You can’t beat a cobbler for delivering a lot of fruity flavor with minimal effort. It takes less work than pie and less time to bake than a cake – especially because it is best when eaten still warm from the oven. Berries are a great choice for a cobbler base. They release a lot of naturally sweet juice during baking and the biscuit-like topping ... Read More »

Whole Grain Blueberry Buckle

Whole Grain Blueberry Buckle

Crisps and cobblers are fairly common fruit desserts and, when you hear either one mentioned you probably have a clear idea of what to expect. Buckles fall into the same general category, but get a lot more questioning looks when mentioned than some other fruity desserts. A “buckle” is a fruit-laden cake that gets its name from the fact that the added moisture from all ... Read More »

Summer Peach Cobbler

Summer Peach Cobbler

As a kid, I wasn’t a big fan of peaches. I didn’t care for the fuzzy skin or the way that I always managed to end up with either a tart and underripe peach or a mealy overripe one. Then, quite by accident, I came across white peaches and my opinion of the peach changed entirely. White peaches (or summerwhite peaches) have lighter colored flesh ... Read More »

Blackberry Cobbler

cobbler, served

Sometimes I think of cobbler as pie for lazy people, as it delivers all the delicious flavor of a well-made fruit pie without requiring you to go to any of the trouble of making a full pie crust. Or at least, I tend to make them when I want something homey without the effort of doing a full pie from scratch. They’re definitely a favorite summer ... Read More »

Blink of an Eye Rhubarb Cobbler

I take a little bit of an issue with the name of this dish. The original name is “blink of an eye rhubarb pie.” The “blink of an eye” part is accurate, because it does come together in about 2 minutes, but the “pie” part is a problem. Granted, the dessert is baked in a pie dish, but it’s not really a pie at all. ... Read More »

Cranberry Cherry Crumble

I really like crumbles because they can be mixed up on a whim. Fruit in the bottom of a baking dish topped with a mixture of flour, sugar, butter and oats is just about as simple as a dessert can get. The crumble mixture can even be made ahead and stored in the refrigerator for a few days, which keeps the butter nice and firm ... Read More »
