Crazy Mixed Up Berry Cobbler!

There is a bed and breakfast in our area that serves what they call a 'Bumbleberry Cobbler' as one of their featured desserts.  It's a cobbler with an assortment of berries in it and it's delicious.  Most of their cooks are Mennonite women who live in that community and those ladies can definitely cook.  This recipe is a variation on that idea for a cobbler.  I don't have their recipe, so one day I decided to make my own.  Of course, I added a few things, but this is a good variation and it is the easiest cobbler you can make.  No rolling out crust or making the lattice top.  Although, I think that is very pretty and probably makes for a better presentation, this cobbler takes a lot less time and tastes every bit as good.  You can also use this basic cobbler recipe and use any sort of filling you like or have on hand.

First, melt 1 stick of butter in a 9" x 13" baking dish.
Mix together milk, self rising flour, sugar and cinnamon until smooth.

It will look like this when blended.  Pour this mixture over the butter.  Do not stir.
Mix one bag of frozen mixed berries (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries) and one can of sliced peaches with 1 cup sugar.   Thaw the berries slightly by leaving them out for about an hour or so.  Don't drain the peaches, use the juice they are canned in.   You can use fresh berries instead of frozen and if you don't want to use the peaches just use 6 cups of berries and add 1/2 cup of water to the berry/sugar mixture.   The peaches do balance the berries out nicely though.
I sliced the peach slices in half.

Pour fruit mixture evenly over the batter.  Do not mix.  Place in a preheated 350 degree oven for 50 to 60 minutes or until the top is nice and brown.  Ovens vary so set the timer for 50 minutes and if it hasn't browned enough leave it for 5 to 10 more minutes.
This is how it will look when browned.  The crust rises to the top and the berries form a delicious filling. Top with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream! 

4 cups mixed berries, fresh or frozen
1 15 oz. can sliced peaches in syrup (do not drain)
1 stick butter (can use margarine)
2 cups sugar (1 for batter, 1 for sweetening berries)
1 cup self rising flour
1 cup milk
1 tsp cinnamon
OPTIONS:  You can substitute any fruit you like in this. For example use 2 cans of peaches with their juice for a peach cobbler. 


  1. We've made this for a very long time, passed down from my grandma, a cuppa everything we don't add any sugar to the batter mixture. Only to sweeten the fruit. It's easy and yummy. Good for a first time cook!

  2. My grandma made this too, called Cuppa Cobbler. Only we used 1cup of sugar, flour, milk, 1 stick of butter and 1 can of pie filling or can of friut with syrup. Crust is buttery! Yummy grandma recipes...nothing better!

  3. This is the receipe that was handed down to me by my mother 40 years ago in Illinois!
    It is nice to see others have it as well as heart warming! TY for sharing.

  4. Wow I've been looking for this recipe for a long time. We used to make it when I was young...but I'd forgotten the details. I am going to try this one!

  5. This is a yummy recipe. I have been using it for years. My mother gave me the recipe. People always say how good it is everytime I make it!! A is soooooo easy!!!!!!!

  6. My Mom made this a lot in my growing up years, she called it Lazy Pie. Very good.....

  7. Sounds awesome!! My grandma used to make a great peach cobbler.This sounds easy & simple I know my babies would enjoy it on a cold night.

  8. I make this cobbler all the hubby loves it. It is called Cuppa Cuppa Cuppa Cobbler in our house. Adding the peaches to the berries sounds so good! Thanks for sharing :)

  9. I have had a number of different "flavor" cobblers through the years. All were good. However, I still prefer just crust and juice. Eat the fruit because it is there. : )

  10. As a child my sitter always made it in a cast iron skillet. It gets crunchier. I make it like you do now,but I think I'll try the skillet and see if my guys like it that way too.

  11. YES! My mom made this cobbler as far back as I can remember! She told me she got the recipe from someone she worked with and that the recipe was very "old" at that time! I too have made this cobbler many many times over the years and have NEVER had one to fail -- I've used many types of fruits, including fresh fruit that has been sweetened in its own juice. I'm not a cinnamon fan tho, so I leave it out!

  12. This is the recipe my Mom handed down to me, we only used one fruit in it, I will definitely be trying the Bumble Berry, that looks scrumptous.

  13. I had a variety of fruit around so I used a cup of raspberries, 2 cups of blueberries, 2 fresh peaches, and 3 fresh nectarines. Very versatile recipe.
