Mixed Berry Cobbler

This Mixed Berry Cobbler recipe is one of my favorites and a big-time reader favorite, too. Your favorite fresh berries combine with a vanilla topping for an irresistible dessert!

Mixed Berry Cobbler

Well, my friends, I am less than happy to say that summer is officially here. I’ve never been a fan of hot weather. This year, though, I’m going to try to think of every day of this heat as one day closer to fall.

On a happier note, there are two things I like about summer. I do like having more daylight hours. I somehow feel like I have more time to get things done. Best of all, though, is all the fruit available from the local markets. I admit that I get a little giddy when I start seeing the first fresh berries of the season.

Mixed Berry Cobbler

This cobbler celebrates one of the best parts of a summer with a combination of berries. I really like the addition of vanilla to the topping. It supplies just a little extra flavor to complement all that berry goodness. If you’re an ice cream fan, this is just the kind of dessert that begs for a little dollop on top.

I used a combination of strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries. Choose a few of your favorite berries, or just stick to one. You never have to make this dessert the same way twice!

Mixed Berry Cobbler

Ingredients

  • 3 cups assorted berries
  • 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 cup (120g) all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (113g) unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup (150g) packed light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Grease a 9”x 6” rectangular, 8” round, or any baking dish with 1- to 1 & 1/2-quart capacity.
  2. Place the berries in prepared pan. Drizzle with the lemon juice.
  3. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  4. In a medium bowl, beat the butter, brown sugar, and vanilla until well-blended. Mix in the dry ingredients until mixture resembles crumbs. Drop the dough evenly on top of berries.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes, or until the top is lightly browned and fruit is bubbly.

Notes

If you use any larger berries, such as strawberries, I recommend chopping them into blueberry-sized pieces.For feeding a crowd, this recipe is easily doubled to be made in a 9”x 13” dish.

  1. This looks delicious! I shall definitly try this!!

  2. I made this last night with blueberries, blackberries, and a few raspberries sprinkled in. It came out fantastic!! I served it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and it was the best cobbler I’ve had, hands down! Thanks for the yummy recipe.

  3. I understand completely! It’s hard to decide whether I hate the heat more or love the fresh produce more… Quite the dilemma!

  4. I wish that I could say that summer has reached us in the UK but it hasn’t. This lovely dessert looks like it would keep you warm even on the most disappointing summer day!

  5. Love your crumble topping, that is one of the most delicious ones I have ever seen. I know I would eat this all myself.

  6. We have fresh peaches here in Colorado right now so I am trying this recipe using fresh peaches, and a touch of cinnamon..I’ll let you know how it works out!

  7. I made this recipe using peaches today! It turned out great! I used 5 fully ripe peeled and cubed peaches. The only change that I made was adding 1/2 tsp cinnamon and 1/4 tsp nutmeg to the dry ingredients. Thanks for such a versatile recipe!

  8. Sounds yummy. Has anybody made this the night before serving? Just wondered how that is when it sits overnight.

  9. Thanx Jennifer! I’m trying it tomorrow to take to my daughters.

  10. I just popped this in the oven, though the dough wasn’t crumbly. It looked more like cookie dough. Hope it turns out! Will let you know!

  11. So yummy!!!! Great recipe!! I’ve made it 3X this summer!!

  12. This recipe is great and only requires just a few ingredients compared to other mixed berry cobblers. I used all organic ingredients to make it a bit more healthy.

  13. My boyfriend and I loved it! I used organic strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries. The berries were so juicy and tart against the sweet crumbly topping. Yum!

  14. I made this for a cookout and it was a huge hit!! Im actually making it again today because of all the requests I got for it. Best cobbler I have ever made!

  15. I just made this tonight and it was DELICIOUS! It was gone by the end of the night, and even one of my friends who doesn’t like cobbler said it was delicious. And it was so easy. Will definitely be making this again!

  16. Oh my WOW! I made a double batch last night knowing that we usually like a crisp. My husband gave me a compliment on it before I even asked if he liked it! I used wild black raspberries, frozen peaches and frozen cherries. I also added about 1/4 c chopped pecans to the top for some crunch. This is definitely going to be a favorite recipe. Thanks so much!

  17. My goodness, was this ever delicious! I had some mixed fresh berries starting to get soft in my fridge & decided to make a cobbler differently than I usually make, and I stumbled upon your blog. I looked at your cobbler & noticed that it wasn’t the usual biscuit-topped or “cakey” type of cobbler, so I decided to go for it. Wow, was I impressed! The topping was sweetly balanced & bound together very well, even after baking. My berries plumped up nicely without drying out. I added a dollop of cinnamon whipped cream to my serving, and even had seconds. I will most definitely be making this dessert again, and plan to keep it as my go-to cobbler recipe. Thank you for sharing this recipe, Jennifer!

  18. This was a hit! Served it with some homemade whipped cream. Good to the last bite! Love the combo of tart berries with the yummy crumbly topping.

  19. I’m drooling over this and want to try it out but all the good berries are gone by now!
    Can you use frozen berries for this recipe?

  20. Making this for Superbowl Sunday. I am excited! Going to make a double batch and hoping it is a hit. strawberries and mixed berries! Yummmmm. I am already drooling just by your photos. Will let you know how it turns out.

  21. I forgot to comment back! This was a success. Everyone loved it and had seconds! I am so thankful for you for sharing such a wonderful recipe. It was delish!

  22. I decided to use fresh strawberries, fresh apples, frozen blueberries, frozen raspberries, and frozen blackberries in here. While the flavor was awesome, the texture was not. There was so much juice left in the pan, it’s equivalent to how far up the pan my topping went. Also, because the topping was so dense, it took much longer to cook than the berries, making the berries squishy, but the apples perfectly cooked. I don’t recommend using frozen berries in this recipe, I recommend looking for one that calls for some cornstarch or flour mixed with the berries to make all the wonderful juice into thick gooey awesomeness! Regardless, flavor was good. Might try it again another time.

  23. I have made this twice in the last two weeks! I love that it’s not too sweet. I did use fresh squeezed lime juice one time because I was out of lemons and, for the record, the taste was just as good if not better! Love love love this recipe. Thank you!

  24. Jennifer! Thanks for this recipe!! I made it with frozen raspberry/blueberry/pomegranate mix I had sitting around in the freezer and it was delicious! Just added a pinch of cinnamon to the crumble and a bit of oats and YUM!

    I did not find any textural issue with the frozen berries at all. Would recommend!!

  25. I doubled this recipe and served it to company – The BEST ever!!!! I also made it early in the day and baked it during dinner – and it was Perfect!! It was so fast and easy – I also served it with vanilla ice cream. This one is a keeper!!! Thank You!!

  26. This is my husband &my absolutte favorite dessert! Did not want a cakey one and this topping was to die for….Thank you Jennifer…..Our palates are soooo happy!

  27. On Pinterest I seen it saying to add oatmeal to this recipe to add some crunch but no where here do I see a thing about oatmeal or how much or any reply to it??? Was that an error?

  28. For those that used frozen berries, did you thaw them first and drain??

  29. i’ve just made this with raspberries, blackberries and strawberries after searching Pinterest for a recipe to use my leftover berries. Out of 4 of us my dad and I are the only ones that would eat these 3 fruits normally but in this cobbler the whole family have devoured the whole lot and already asked me to make it again! It was seriously yummy!

  30. Hi Jennifer. I just tried your recipe tonight using frozen, unthawed chopped strawberries. The cobbler tasted amazing, but the topping stayed soft and I wanted to know how I could fix that. I would like to make this again and I’m hoping that the topping becomes crisp the next time I make it.

  31. Looks delicious.  I’ll be making this for 10 guests tomorrow.  If I double the recipe and use a 9 x 13 pan, how long should I bake it?

  32. I made this a few times last summer and everyone loved it! I was thinking I might make it for teacher appreciation this coming week. Have you ever made it ahead of time and waited to bake? Would you suggest me sending the dough separate? Thanks for the recipe!

    • Hi, Katie! I think the topping would get soggy if you assemble the entire cobbler ahead of time. I’d either keep them separate until you’re ready to bake it, or bake it in advance and then reheat it for serving.

  33. This was absolutely delicious. I used blackberries and blueberries. So very good!

  34. What a lovely and versatile recipe! Mine is in the oven right now with frozen blueberries, strawberries and raspberries. Thank you Jen – Pinned!

  35. Hi, just made the cobbler and it tastes great, but do have a good bit of liquid. any idea why that may be?

    I used strawberries, blueberries and a few raspberries.  Did bake it longer than 30 minutes because wasn’t sure it looked dark enough.

    Thanks.

  36. For some reason my dough mixture wasnt enough. Help!

    • Hi, Kristal. Did you use a different sized pan than what’s recommended in the recipe? If not, I’m not sure what could have happened if you didn’t alter the recipe in any way.

  37. I just made this but I think I over-softened my butter. My topping was not crumbly at all, it was actually smooth.  I’m sure it’ll taste fine, but it looks not so great. I’m actually afraid to try it!  lol!

  38. I have frozen huckleberries. Should I thaw them out first?  Rinse as well?  Thinking if I do that, the flavor might be rinsed out. Also should I put a little sugar on the berries?  They are not real sweet. 

    • Hi, Dollie. I don’t think I’ve ever baked with huckleberries, but I don’t think rinsing berries would take away any flavor. Frozen berries have more moisture, so if you go that route you may need to add a bit more flour or maybe some cornstarch to keep the filling from being too watery. You can certainly sprinkle the berries with sugar if you want them sweeter. Just keep in mind that the topping adds sweetness to the cobbler, too.

  39. This is a good recipe , but it is not a cobbler, it is a crisp.

  40. I made this for my family and I swear it was gone faster than I would have ever imagined. Served with some vanilla icecream. Everybody LOVED it and so did I. My nephew was saying he was sad he only had one bite left and then the dog ate it. He probably liked it too.

  41. I just made this tonight and it was absolutely delicious!  Thanks for the great recipe.

  42. Hi,
    Can you make it a day or two ahead? Can I use frozen fruit that I froze when they were fresh?

    • You can make it in advance. I would recommend covering it and keeping it refrigerated. Then you can reheat all or part of it when you’re ready to serve. Frozen fruit will have more liquid, so be sure to thaw them well. You may need to add a bit more flour to thicken the mixture.

  43. Can you add a  premade pie crust to the pan before adding the berries?

    • Hi, Amy. This filling would likely work as a pie, but I’d recommend using a pie pan. The filling has a bit more liquid than you might normally want for a pie, so you may want to add a bit more flour.

  44. I made this Cobbler last night to be served at a Pot Luck following this mornings church service. It was a great success success. I was able to warm it slightly before serving.  Lots of compliments!   I used frozen mixed berries.  I did add a tablespoon of minute tapioca to thicken the juices. I do this for rhubarb pie.. The berries didnot turn to mush. This has become a new favourite. Thanks!

  45. OMG ! ♥️😋 this is like the most successful recipe i‘ve ever followed 🙏🏻 My family r overwhelmed. The taste, consistency, texture and smell are just just mind blowing. Perfect for summer days 👌🏻 Million Thanx for the recipe.

  46. Made this today. I followed the recipe exactly and it was dynamite! Thank you!

  47. Will  just 3/4 cup brown sugar actually be sweet enough for this cobbler?

  48. Looks delish!  Just picked some blueberries and blackberries this weekend. Will add a few strawberries and raspberries I had bought at the store and plan on having it with dinner tonight! 

  49. I made this tonight using homegrown strawberries and blueberries…absolutely delicious! Next time I might double the dough mix as it barely covered the fruit but it still tasted amazing,

  50. It’s wonderful. I want to try it right now.

  51. I rarely leave comments these days, but I’ve been making this for over a year now and it always gets raves.

  52. I just made this recipe but I used blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries, it tasted exactly like a berry poptart. The flavor was absolutely AMAZING. The whole pan was gone in minutes, going to make 2x the recipe this weekend and time how long it takes to disappear.

  53. I like berries and this one has all of them, incredible. I will make one soon and see how does it works. Many thanks for the recipe also other sharing. 

  54. Made this for my sisters birthday. It looked delish when I pulled it from the oven this morning, BUT upon going to serve it this afternoon I found that it was a gross liquified mess!! It was so embarrassing!

    • I’m sorry you had troubles, Emily! If you didn’t change anything at all about the recipe and your ingredients were fresh, then I’d recommend checking the accuracy of your oven’s temperature with an oven thermometer.

  55. Looking forward to making this for a camping dinner. I was planning to make it in the morning and serving it about 10 hours later. Any tips for keeping it from getting soggy? Thanks 

  56. I am in the process of making this recipe….will just 3/4 cup brown sugar actually be sweet enough for this cobbler?

  57. I love to cook and are always looking for new recipes for my menu. Today is my lucky day, the Mixed Berry Cobbler recipe is great, just follow the instructions and everything is easy, I love it. Thanks for sharing

  58. I have made this cobbler many times using a variety of berries and even mixed in peaches and it has turned out fantastic every time, no matter if we have fresh or frozen fruit. It’s our go-to when we want a fast delicious dessert.  Love heating up the cobbler and adding a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top!  Thank you so much for sharing. 

  59. I love this recipe . Just made it today with organic pure cane sugar since I didn’t have brown and I always use frozen blueberries and I have to say it taste better to me than brown sugar such a good recipe thank you 

  60. Your berry cobbler looks so delicious and healthy. My son loves to eat so much and urge make it every weekend. Thank you a lot for your recipes and sharing.

  61. Instead of 2 of flour I did one and a half and then half of rolled oats. Came out great. Havent made it like this before, thanks

  62. Made this for Mother’s Day dinner. Everybody loved it. Including my mom who does not like sweets. And me, who doesn’t like most fruits. I added a bit of allspice and cinnamon to the fruit. And a little cornstarch per some of the feedback given in the comments. It was amazing served with vanilla ice cream and whipped cream. Will definitely make again.

  63. Hi! I made my first cobbler for my dad for Father’s Day, and it turned out really good ( I am little proud of my 12 yr old self ) this is a really good recipe and I will make it again! Thank you!

  64. This is my favorite cobbler/crumble recipe. I was going to make it for the fourth of july, but I couldn’t find the recipes in any of my files. I was so disappointed!

    But then I did. I can’t you how ecstatic I was when I found this page again and what a relief it was that this recipe wasn’t loss to me.

    Truly delicious and great!

  65. Thank you for sharing. It looks so yummy.

  66. This was AMAZING! I’ve never done more of a crumb cobbler before but it was DELICIOUS! I do like a bit more crust myself so I’ll probably double the topping next time and see how that works out but definitely making this again and again!
