Gluten free summer berry cobbler



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!
