Strawberry & Raspberry Cobbler

Melissa's Cuisine: Strawberry & Raspberry Cobbler

What is your favorite season?  Mine--without question--is summer.  I love the warmth, the longer days, trips to the beach, and the food!  Summer brings an abundance of fresh fruits and vegetables.  I enjoy going to the farmer's market on Saturday mornings and keeping and eye on my garden as I watch my plants grow.

We're at the very beginning of strawberry season around here, and it's starting to show at the farmer's market.  Berries are quite expensive now, but as the season gets into full swing, the prices will go down.  Typically I go strawberry picking each summer, but I don't think that's going to happen at 8.5 months pregnant!  Good thing I have the farmer's market...

This month's Lady Behind the Curtain Dessert Challenge brought together two of my favorite summer berries--strawberries and raspberries.  Typically I enjoy my fruit fresh and plain, but for this challenge, I had to put them into a dessert.  I decided to make a dessert similar my Strawberry Rhubarb Cobbler and make a Strawberry Raspberry Cobbler.

This cobbler is chock full of plump red berries.  They're sprinkled with a little bit of sugar and then dotted with a bit of butter.  A thin batter is poured on top of the berries before baking.  It really creates the perfect ratio of berries to cake.  I made this cobbler twice in one week--the first time with just strawberries and the second time with both strawberries and raspberries so I could use it for this challenge.  I didn't share the first pan with anyone, but I thought I better be nicer the second time around :)
