Breakfast isn’t especially my favorite (with one exception for buttermilk biscuits and gravy made with bacon). I don’t love eggs, despite trying to enjoy them, and most other breakfasts leave me feeling like I need insulin (though I’m not diabetic). This cobbler, however, meets right in the mid-point (sweet spot?) of sour and light and lovely. It can be dressed up for dessert with ice cream and caramel sauce, or served in it’s brighter, cleaner version with a bit of Greek yogurt. I’ve made it here with black raspberries frozen from this summer’s garden and tart pie cherries, but it is a laid back recipe that works well with any berry you happen to have on hand, fresh or frozen.
5 cups fresh or frozen berries (I used 3 cups of raspberries and 2 cups of cherries)
3 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
3 Tablespoons honey
½ cup all-purpose flour
½ cup old fashioned oats
½ cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup brown sugar
½ teaspoon salt
5 Tablespoons butter, cut into 10 or so pieces
Preheat oven to 325°
For filling, combine berries, honey and flour and pour into deep pie dish.
For topping, combine flour, oats, pecans, brown sugar and salt. Using either a pastry cutter, two knives or fingers, rub the butter into the dry ingredients until butter is small, pea-sized pieces. Sprinkle topping over berry mixture, distributing evenly.
Bake for 40 minutes or until topping is golden and filling is bubbly.
