One of my most favorite cobblers is blackberry.
Yes, most people would consider this a summer dessert. Me, too, but the supermarkets have them almost any time of year so we can indulge whenever we please. When I made this recipe, I used a combination of blackberry, strawberry, and blueberry. Strawberries are usually cheaper than the others, so I use them to make up about half the berry amount. Blackberries are so rich in flavor they tend to take over, but I like it that way. Whatever you decide, I’m sure it will be delicious. And don’t forget the ice cream!
BERRY-LICIOUS CHOCOLATE CHIP COBBLER
- 10 cups fresh berries, any kind you prefer. A bag from the freezer works well, too.
- 1 cup sugar
- ¼ cup all-purpose flour
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 2/3 cup milk
- 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 ½ teaspoons baking powder
- ¼ salt
- ¼ cup sugar + 1 additional tablespoon for sprinkling
- ½ cup cold butter, cut into slices
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
- Mix all filling ingredients in a 9×13-inch baking dish. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 20 minutes.
- While the filling is baking, combine the milk and vinegar in measuring cup and set aside to curdle.
- In a large mixing bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, and salt.
- Add butter by the slice, cutting it into the flour mixture with your fingertips or pastry cutter, until large crumbs form.
- Add milk mixture and gently stir a few times to combine. Fold in chocolate chips.
- Remove berry mixture from oven. Discard foil. Top berries with ping pong ball-sized scoops of biscuit dough. Sprinkle top with the tablespoon of sugar.
- Bake for an additional 20 minutes. Fruit will be bubbly and biscuit tops browned.
