Mulberry Cobbler

After more than 20 years of putting up with messy wild Mulberry trees, I finally decided to do something about it. I made Mulberry Cobbler! The best part about making this was the quality time with my granddaughter collecting the Mulberries! This recipe is so different to make. The cake batter is poured onto the bottom of the pan then everything else goes on top including the boiling water! As it cooks, the cake batter rises up to cover most of the Mulberries but still leaves the delicious Mulberry filling in tact!

I started by waiting for the Mulberries to ripen.

You can pick the Mulberries or lay a sheet of plastic under

the tree. Then, my granddaughters favorite part,

shake the branches so the berries drop onto the plastic sheet.

Pick through the mulberries only saving the ripe and unblemished ones.

The little green stems don’t come off easily so leave them on. They will cook

up in the oven so you can just eat them with the cobbler. Keep in mind this

is a very messy job and you may want to wear gloves. Now onto the recipe.

  1. That sounds really delicious and should come with a license to enjoy it. I have decided to open my walled gardens to photo shoots as now almost completed under vast cost and work be me once grown an extra income to pensions. This exact recipe will be used in the art of entertaining in the way of attracting customers to use my gardens for weddings and fashion shows in an Edwardian 1911 English garden in sunny Europe. 98f today and rain this morning for first time in weeks.lovely.

    • Oh yes they stain horribly! My husband cuts grass and they will drop on his shirt…instant stain. I think that’s why so few people actually use them to eat but I’m telling you, this was delicious!

  2. Our mulberry tree has died, so I won’t get to try this very interesting sounding recipe. The only other recipe I’ve seen that had you pouring hot water over the top is my aunt’s double fudge pudding. Have you tried making this cobbler recipe using any fruits other than mulberries? Just curious.

    • No I haven’t but I am certain any would work. Raspberries would be wonderful and I wouldn’t change anything. If you would use strawberries or blueberries I think I would use less sugar because they are so sweet.

  3. It sounds like your granddaughter had fun with this. I cut all the mulberry bushes down because they were so messy and the birds kept pooping purple all over my patio, picnic table etc. I probably won’t try this one, too much work for me.

  4. There are a few mulberry bushes at Council Point Park and a couple of walker there pick ’em and eat ’em on the spot each year, plus they take some to go. I also see the squirrels and woodchuck crawling up high to get at them.

  5. I was less reading and scanning through photos repeatedly. Though, photos takes more space in WordPress than mere text, but these recipes deserves the visual taste. The main idea is any berry, cinnamon, butter and cake. Thank you for the berry recipe.
