Winter Berry Breakfast Cobbler

January 28, 2020

Jordan Durbin


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


Crumbled Topping:

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.

    Jordan, I was pleasantly inspired by the way your recipe, the scripture, your mini personal autobiography / intro, all simply and quietly introduced your readers to the essence of who you and what your everyday life is about. Hope to see another post. In a certain way it reminds me of the 1970s down to earth charismatic movement. Christianity meets real life…(non religious non threatening introduction to Jesus Christ..the Son of God..our Redeemer and Savior.)..reaching people like me who didn’t even realize that we were spiritually and eternally lost. unchurched
