The beauty of a cobbler is that you can use any seasonal fruit (or a combination of fruits) available. Mix and match to find your favorite combination!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups seasonal fruit, cut (a good combination is blackberries and peaches) Add to list
  • 2 tablespoons sugar, divided plus extra for sprinkling Add to list
  • 1/2 to 1 tablespoon tapioca flour (depending on the juiciness of fruit) Add to list
  • 1/2 cup whole-wheat pastry flour Add to list
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder Add to list
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda Add to list
  • 2 tablespoons butter, cut into pieces Add to list
  • 1/3 cup buttermilk Add to list

Preparation

Preheat oven to 400º F. Butter a small 8-inch square baking dish.

Wash and trim fruit to desired size. In a bowl, toss fruit with 1 tablespoon sugar and tapioca flour. Let stand a few minutes. If the filling looks very runny, add a bit more tapioca and wait a few more minutes.

For the crust, combine pastry flour, baking powder, baking soda and 1 tablespoon sugar in a bowl. Using your fingers, work butter into flour until a coarse meal is formed. Add buttermilk and stir to form a soft dough.

Pour fruit into the prepared baking pan and drop dough by large spoonfuls on top. Sprinkle with a bit of sugar and bake for 20 to 30 minutes, until fruit is bubbling and topping is golden.

Notes

Dairy-free option: Use soymilk with a drop of lemon juice in place of buttermilk, and use coconut oil in place of butter.
