Easy Baking Recipes: Berry Cobbler

This recipe has become one of our favorites. It is a recipe I got from my grandmother, and I have made a few changes to make it a little healthier. I have replaced the refined sugar with honey and maple syrup.  We like this cobbler as a dessert, but even more for breakfast! It is good warm or cold.

Berry Cobbler


4 cups frozen mixed berries partially thawed.
1 heaping tablespoon flour
1/2 teaspoon lemon or orange peel
1/4 cup honey

For the biscuit topping:
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup (4 tablespoons) cold butter
1/4 cup milk
2 tablespoons maple syrup


Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

Combine berries, flour and peel in a bowl. Combine well. Add the honey and stir in as well as possible.  Pour into 8"x8" baking dish

In a medium bowl stir together the flour, baking powder and salt. Cut the butter into small pieces and add to the flour mixture. Use a pastry blender, or your hands to work in the butter until the mixture resembles small peas.  Add the milk and maple syrup and stir until the dough forms. Add a little more milk if necessary.

Drop the biscuit dough onto the berry mixture in globs. It is okay if the dough does not cover all of the berries.

Bake for 20-25 minutes until the biscuits are done.

Great served with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.


  1. How nice to see a post from you pop up on my blog feed. This looks delicious. In a few weeks I might make this or something similar... Strawberries will be ripe and I have wild blackberries in the freezer left over from last year. Need to use those before they ripen again in July!

    1. Thanks Marcie! How nice to still have frozen blackberries...with recipes like this berries don't last long in our house! I am anxiously awaiting strawberry season to be here.

  2. So nice to see you blogging again!!!! This surely looks great. Thanks for the recipe!
