Easy Berry Cobbler (Pie Cake)
This cobbler is literally the EASIEST thing to make. It is my go-to whenever I need a quick dessert and is a must-have for summer dinner parties (or anytime really)! It mixes together in just 10 minutes and uses our light and sweet Dessert Berry Blend. The top bakes into golden, crispy perfection with just the right amount of crunch, and I love to serve it warm with a scoop of ice cream on top. It’s the perfect summer treat for kids and adults alike! Plus, it's extremely versatile- you can use any fruit you have on hand. Fair warning: everyone will want seconds!
My friend Kristen is the ultimate hostess and she is the one who first introduced me to this Pioneer Woman recipe. Kristen often doubled the recipe and cooked it in a 9x13-inch pan for our small group get togethers. I’ve adapted the recipe to use Unsifted whole grain blends, which I think make it even more delicious (and nutritious)!
As an aside, I realize that there are many different types of cobblers. My young boys can't get past the fact that I usually make it in a pie dish. They refuse to call it cobbler, so instead they lovingly call it "pie cake". So there's another option for you too haha! Regardless of what you call it, you have got to try this! Trust me - you’ll be glad you did :)
Happy Unsifted Baking!

PREP: 10 minutes
BAKE: 1 hour
(Approx. 1 1/4 cup unsifted pastry flour)
|1 1/2 tsp||baking powder|
|1/4 tsp||sea salt|
|1 cup + 1 tbsp||organic cane sugar (alt: white sugar)|
|unsalted butter, melted|
|2 cups||fresh (or frozen) fruit (i.e. blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, sliced peaches, etc.)|
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and grease a 9-inch pie pan or 3-quart baking dish with butter (or use a 9-inch USApan and don’t worry about greasing!)
- Melt 1 stick of unsalted butter.
- Mill 3/4 cup Dessert Berry Blend on "pastry" setting (will yield approx. 1 1/4 cup Unsifted flour)
- In a medium bowl, whisk together all the Unsifted flour, 1 1/2 tsp baking powder, 1/4 tsp sea salt, and 3/4 cup sugar.
- Whisk in 1 cup milk.
- Whisk in the melted butter.
- (optional) If using fresh fruit, rinse and pat dry. No rinsing (or thawing) necessary for frozen fruit.
- Pour the batter into the greased baking dish. Sprinkle fruit evenly over the top of the batter.
- Sprinkle 1/4 cup of remaining sugar over the fruit
- Bake for 1 hour, or until golden brown and bubbly.
- When 10 minutes of cooking time remains, sprinkle the remaining 1 tbsp sugar over the top.
- Serve by the spoonful and top with whipped cream or ice cream. It's best served warm, but also reheats well if there are any leftovers.
