You all know I’m all about dessert-but after falling off the healthy wagon last week by eating almost an entire dairy free cheesecake, it’s time to reign it in.
Summer is a great time for fresh berries. But berries, especially strawberries, bought in a supermarket are not always sweet enough to eat on their own. So, I decided to make a gluten free fruit cobbler. I’m hoping for some riper fruit at our local farmers market this year.
I came across the recipe this morning. As always, I made it my own. This couldn’t be any easier to throw together.
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons Gluten-Free Bisquick
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup coconut milk stirred together with 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar (almond milk won’t work here, it will curdle)
1/4 cup unflavored coconut oil, liquefied
1 1/2 pounds (about 6 cups) mixed berries, such as blueberries, raspberries, blackberries and strawberries (quartered)
1 cup cherries, pitted or dried cherries
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and grease a 9-inch pie plate. In a medium bowl, whisk together 1 cup flour, 1/4 cup sugar and the baking powder. Mix in the coconut milk mixture and coconut oil until just combined.
In another medium bowl, toss together the berries, cherries, remaining 2 tablespoons flour and 2 tablespoons sugar.
Spoon the fruit into the prepared dish and dollop the dough over the fruit in 8 spoonfuls; sprinkle with sugar. Bake until the juices are bubbling and the biscuits are golden, about 35 minutes. Let cool for about 10 minutes before serving.
I used gluten free Bisquick, but still added the two teaspoons of baking powder. I used dried cherries (left over), blueberries, raspberries and strawberries. I think doubling the biscuit dough would be a good idea here, depending on how much biscuit you want. This recipe is just sweet enough. You could sprinkle the fruit with a bit of extra sugar if you like. Sprinkling the fruit with the Bisquick also makes it nice and thick, like a pie filling.
So take advantage of those summer berries-serve this gluten free cobbler at your next summer gathering. It’s sure to be a hit!
