Guest Post: Blackberry-Cherry Cobbler

I haven’t had a chance to try this delicious looking cobbler but I cannot wait. Blackberries and cherries are popping up everywhere right now. How fun would it be to go out berry picking and then making a delicious dessert with your berries?

 I hope you will stop by and give Hazel from Cooking with Mumma Alsum (click for link to blog) a like or a follow! Let’s all help a new blogger out.

 Hello everyone! My name is Hazel aka Mumma Alsum. Marci has graciously allowed me to write a guest post here on What’s for Dinner Moms?.

Tonight’s dessert is going to be a fruit cobbler. There is a distinct twist on this dessert whereby we will be using ginger and lime to bring out different layers of flavor in the pie. This cobbler can be made with locally sourced or gathered ingredients in Michigan (or Washington 😉 ).


We really enjoyed this dessert. It had a great variety of flavors and textures, and they were in good balance: zesty, tart, sweet, sticky, crunchy. My husband said he would have liked more crust so maybe keep that in mind. I don’t like when the topping on cobbler gets soggy so I was happy that this one was crisp on the outside and almost fluffy on the inside – like a country biscuit. My kids absolutely loved it, and could have eaten even more than we ended up letting them. Also, we wished we had cream, Cool Whip, or ice cream to go with it.
