A Good Thing Gone BAD!

Blackberry and Cherry Cobbler - doesn’t that sound great! That is what I decided to make the other day.

So I used the following recipe only I did half blackberries and half cherries.

Berry Cobbler
4 cups blackberries
1 tsp. lemon juice
Cooking spray
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 to 2 tbsp. water
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1/8 tsp. ground nutmeg
1 dash salt
1 tbsp. vegetable oil
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 egg whites, lightly beaten
3 tbsp sugar
½ tsp ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350°F. Combine blueberries and lemon juice in a 9-inch square baking dish coated with cooking spray; stir gently, and set aside. Combine flour and next 5 ingredients (flour through salt) in a bowl; make a well in center of mixture. Combine oil, vanilla, and egg whites; stir well with a whisk. Add to flour mixture, stirring just until moist. Drop dough by spoonfuls onto blueberry mixture. Combine 3 tablespoons sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over topping. Bake at 350°F for 35 minutes or until filling is bubbly and topping is lightly browned.


When the cobbler came out of the oven it smelled SO good. After taking a few bites we noted that the blackberry seeds were very prevalent and made the cobbler hard to chew and enjoy. Wow, what a major disappointment!


Looks good, smells good, taste good but NOT fun to eat!

oh no! Did you use fresh berries? Do you think frozen berries (drained) would work?

I did use fresh berries. If I madea berry cobbler I think I would go with blueberry instead.

I think it is funny that you posted the entire recipe for a dish you confess was horrible. Maybe that's what you do with food blogs. I have to say, though, that I'm not tempted by it...though I DO love berries.

I am hoping that the foodies out there can help me make this recipe better. Any suggestions?
