Berry Cobbler with Coconut Walnut Topping


Berry Cobbler with Coconut Walnut Topping

Ingredients

Filling

  • 4 cups mixed berries (i.e. blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, boysenberries, strawberries), fresh or frozen
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 2 Tbsp instant tapioca
  • 1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice

Topping

  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 4 Tbsp (1/4 cup) cold, unsalted butter, cut into cubes

Method

1 Preheat oven to 375°F. Butter a 9×9 inch baking dish.

2 In a large bowl, mix together the filling ingredients – berries, sugar, tapioca, and lemon juice. Pour into the baking dish.

3 In a medium sized bowl, stir together the flour, coconut, sugar, walnuts, baking powder and salt from the topping ingredients. Use your fingers to mix in the cubes of butter. Rub the butter into the other ingredients until the mixture looks like coarse crumbs.

4 Sprinkle the topping over the filling. Bake for 35-40 minutes, until the topping is golden brown and crispy, and the filling is bubbling.

5 Let cool for at least an hour. Serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.

Makes 6 servings.
