Can you believe it’s the end of June already? Summer just started and it already feels like it’s just flying on by! I’ve been eyeing up all the amazing things popping up at the farmer’s market lately like the first zucchini, early season tomatoes and summer’s sweetest berries. It’s like an edible rainbow each and every time I go.

On my last trip, I picked up several pints of berries….strawberries, blackberries and blueberries to be exact. Each one offering up their very own flavor but all just as juicy as the other. I thought this would be a good time to back up something amazing, like this Brown Butter Berry Cobbler.

What is a cobbler?

Cobblers, actually, refer to a variety of dishes and no two are ever alike. Some cobblers are baked fruit that’s topped with biscuits but for this recipe, the batter is actually poured into the baking dish first, then topped with the berries. The topping then rises up to the top and wraps around the fruit like a butter pastry blanket. YUMMO!

The best mixed berry cobbler recipe starts with the best ingredients, that’s why I love to use a high quality flour, butter and farm fresh berries. Good flour helps the batter bake up light and fluffy and the butter adds a richness that’s just fabulous with the sweet berries.

This cobbler recipe couldn’t be simpler to make, you’re basically just mixing, dumping and baking. EASIER than PIE!

In my opinion, this is the best mixed berry cobbler recipe around. The brown butter addition adds a hint of nutty flavor to the batter that compliments the tart sweetness of the berries. You can totally use any berries you like in this cobbler recipe but I went for what they had at the market, blackberries, blueberries and strawberries.

It’s very similar to this Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp I made last year and, hey, yeah, rhubarb would be pretty fabulous in this homemade cobbler recipe, too! I don’t know where I’ve been lately but I’m thinking it’s time to whip up a few more summer fruit recipes.  I’m surely lacking in that area for all of you.

This Brown Butter Berry Cobbler is completely amazing still warm from the oven with a big scoop of this vanilla ice cream on top. Or go totally modern and add a scoop of this Vanilla Chai Ice Cream.
