Dessert Alert!





I fixed this simple and easy to have on hand mixed berry cobbler last week for my brother-in-law and sister-in-law and it got RAVE reviews!  I had everything I needed in the pantry and freezer and whipped this quick dessert up in about 20 minutes.  Now that's what I call awesome!

This could also be a great addition to any brunch or summertime get together and the addition of cinnamon to the topping mix gives it a warm spice and depth of flavor.

This will definitely be added to my "go-to" list of desserts!




Mixed Berry Cobbler

Print this recipe!


For the filling-

  • 4 C any combination of frozen or fresh mixed berries (I used 2 1/2 C blueberries and 1 1/2 C strawberries)
  • 1/4 C sugar
  • 1/2 C water
  • 1 T cornstarch

For the topping-

  • 1 1/2 C Bisquick
  • 1/2 C skim milk
  • 2 T sugar
  • 1 t cinnamon


Heat oven to 400 degrees. Mix 1/2 cup sugar, cornstarch and water in 2 quart saucepan. Stir in fruit (can used frozen or fresh). Heat to boiling & stir for 1-2  minutes. Pour into an ungreased 9 X 13, or equivalent casserole dish. 

Mix topping ingredients in a separate bowl until soft ball forms. Drop dough, by "spread out" tablespoons, onto hot blueberry mixture. Bake until golden brown, about 20 minutes.  Let it rest for 8-10 minutes before serving.

Serve with reduced fat vanilla ice cream or top with whipped cream if desired.
