Blueberry-Strawberry Cobbler in Honor of Our Lady

With the Solemnity Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary coming up on August 15th, I thought I would share a delicious Blueberry-Strawberry Cobbler we recently made with some leftover berries.

Serving blueberries is an easy way to tie in any of Our Lady's feast days since the color blue is symbolic of her mantle.

The cobbler was very easy to make and turned out absolutely delicious.

Blueberry-Strawberry Cobbler 
  • 1/3 cup Butter
  • 1 1/2 cups Flour
  • 1 1/2 cups Granulated Sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups Milk
  • 2 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 4 cups of Blueberries
  • 2 cups of Strawberries, sliced
  • 1/2 cup Pecans, coarsely chopped
  • 1/3 cup Brown Sugar
Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C). Place butter in a 9×13″ baking pan and melt in preheating oven, but remember to keep an eye on it. Remove from oven when butter is melted.

In the meantime, combine flour, granulated sugar, milk, baking powder, cinnamon and salt in a large mixing bowl.  Whisk together until a thin batter forms and all the lumps are gone.

Pour the batter into the pan, over the melted butter.  Do not stir.  (The butter will ooze up around the batter and may pool on the top, which is ok.) 
Sprinkle berries evenly over batter.

Sprinkle with pecans and brown sugar.

Bake for 45-60 minutes or until it tests done. The top will be a beautiful golden color.

Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream (a big "cloud" for the Assumption) and Enjoy!

Be sure to check the archives for even more ideas for celebrating the Assumption.  I also posted a few other ideas here . 

Queen Assumed into Heaven,
 Pray for Us!

Thank you!
