Celebrate summer with this Mini Skillet Berry Cobbler that is quick to make and even quicker to disappear! It’s the perfect dish when you want a little something sweet.
It’s my latest recipe for Dixie Crystals and coming to you just in time for the long Memorial Day weekend ahead.
It is the perfect treat as you need minimal ingredients, tastes great with whatever berries tickle your fancy, and takes about 30 minutes from start to finish.
- For the Cobbler:
- 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup Dixie Crystals Light Brown Sugar
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 cup milk
- For the Berry Filling:
- 2 1/2 cups fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced
- 1/2 cup fresh blackberries
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup Dixie Crystals Extra Fine Granulated Sugar
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Add 3 tablespoons of butter to both mini cast iron skillets and place into oven to melt.
While butter is melting, stir together flour, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Add milk and stir until just combined.
Stir berries with flour, lemon juice, and sugar.
Once butter is nice and bubbly, remove skillets from the oven. Evenly divide batter among each skillet, and top with berry filling mixture. Bake for 40 minutes or until crust is golden brown and center of cobbler is no longer raw.
If using frozen berries, thaw completely and drain. Blot dry with a paper towel before using.
I’ve used strawberries and blackberries but you can use any berry you have on hand. I was going for a patriotic vibe with the strawberries but this would even be delicious with peaches!
Oh, and if you’re thinking to yourself…I don’t have mini skillets, do not despair. This same recipe can be made in a 10 inch cast iron skillet as well.
I personally wouldn’t go any larger than 10 inch simply because I like my cobblers to have a good bit of cobbler to fruit ratio, but if you don’t mind and only have a larger skillet on hand then by all means use your 12 inch.
And if you’re really wanting to go all out this holiday weekend, here’s some more festive recipes for you:
