With our busy, hectic schedules, I don’t usually have much for breakfast other than my coffee. I must have my coffee. This is one of the reasons I love Sunday mornings. I love getting up earlier than everyone and making a nice breakfast for the family. Although I was planning on doing a traditional bacon and eggs this morning, I wanted to change things up so I looked for inspiration.
My eyes scanned the shelves in the pantry, then the refrigerator but nothing spoke to me. I moved to the freezer, not a place I like to go for anything made from scratch. Several bags of frozen fruit stared back at me. Hmmm, That gave me an idea.
I decided on a frozen fruit cobbler. This recipe uses ingredients that you probably have in your pantry and it was pretty much done within an hour. This is what I did…
Frozen fruit (I used Strawberry, Cherries, Blueberries & Mango)
1 cup Powdered Sugar
2.5 cups Flour
3 tsp Baking Powder
2 Tbsp Sugar
3 Tbsp Brown Sugar
1/3 cup softened unsalted Butter
1/3 cup Milk
1-2 Tbsp Brown Sugar for topping
1. Pre-heat oven to 350F.
2. Pour a mix of frozen fruit into an 8x10x2 oven-safe pan until it’s approx 2/3 filled. I used the pieces straight from the bag, except for the cherries, where I quartered them. I used frozen Strawberry, Blueberries, Cherries and Mango pieces. Although I love mango, the family commented that they would have preferred the dish without them, so I will omit them the next time.
3. Add the powdered sugar to the fruit and mix.
4. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, Brown Sugar, Sugar and Baking Powder. Add butter and combine. It will be very crumbly but continue to mix until well blended. Add the milk and mix well. The consistency will be a crumbly and pastry like.
5. Put the mixture onto the fruit. Sprinkle the 1-2 Tbsps brown sugar on top.
6. Bake for 30-40 mins, until it is browned and the fruit starts bubbling through.
7. Let it cool for a bit before serving.
We had this for breakfast, which is not the typical use for a cobbler but hey, it was a huge hit. Obviously, it makes a great dessert as well, so it’s pretty versatile.
