4th of July Cherry Blueberry Cobbler

I was so going to post this Tuesday.  I forgot.  And then, I was going to post it yesterday morning.  Forgot again.  Whoopsies.  It’s way too late now (obvi), but here is a fun, easy, festive & super delicious 4th of July dessert… Cherry Blueberry Cobbler.  I like it because it’s a little different than the usual layered puddings and red, white & blue cupcakes that you see around Independence Day.  I found this recipe on The Pioneer Woman in 2010.  I ended up not making it until 2011.  I am writing about it 2012.  Maybe you can make it in 2013??  It will be the cobbler recipe that transcends internet time.

Here’s what you need: (Adapted from The Pioneer Woman’s Blackberry Cobbler #1)

  • 1 stick butter – melted
  • 1 1/4 cup sugar… divided into 1 cup & 1/4 cup
  • 1 cup self rising flour
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1/2 cup cherries – diced

Preheat your oven to 350.  Rub some butter in your baking dish… you can really use anything to bake this bad boy.

 Put the flour & 1 cup of the sugar into a medium mixing bowl.  Whisk in the milk, mixing well.

Whisk in the butter.  Again, mix well.

Pour batter into the buttered baking dish.  (Pour batter buttered baking dish… say that 5 times fast.  You totally stopped reading and tried it, didn’t you?!)

Sprinkle fruit evenly over batter.

Sprinkle the remaining 1/4 cup of sugar over the top.

Bake for 1 hour.  If desired, take it out at 50 minutes and sprinkle with another tablespoon of sugar… then (obviously) replace and bake for the final 10 minutes.  I would hope that you desire to do this.

I like this recipe because you can easily adapt it to fit whatever your fruit preferences are, or whatever holiday you are celebrating for that matter.  I also like it because it is scrumptious.

HAPPY 4TH OF JOOO-LY!  Or 5th of July.  Whatever.  (Really, though, I hope you had a fantastic 4th!)

  1. Hey, even though you’re a bit late in posting, at least you *made* something. The most patriotic I got was putting a t-shirt with the American flag on LO haha. The recipe looks great, and glad it turned out delicious!
