sugar plus 3 tablespoons
zest of 1 lemon
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Grease an 8-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the fruit, 3/4 cup sugar, 1/4 cup flour, and the lemon juice. Toss gently to combine. Transfer the fruit to the prepared baking dish.
Cut 1 tablespoon butter into small cubes and distribute those over the fruit mixture.
In the bowl of a food processor fitted with a metal blade, combine the remaining 1 1/2 cups flour, 2 tablespoons sugar, the baking powder, lemon zest, and salt. Cube the remaining 4 tablespoons butter and add those to the bowl. Pulse until coarse crumbs are formed.
Alternatively, you can mix the flour and other ingredients in a mixing bowl, cutting in the butter with a pastry blender.
Stir in the heavy cream until a thick batter forms. Scoop the batter atop the fruit mixture evenly. It’s okay if the topping doesn’t perfectly cover the fruit. It will spread when baked. Sprinkle the remaining tablespoon of sugar over the top of the batter.
Bake the cobbler for 30 minutes until the fruit is thick and bubbly and the topping golden brown. Serve warm with whipped cream or ice cream.
- Buy in bulk. I regularly buy baking ingredients in bulk from Costco or via mail order. I store in the freezer what I won't use soon; in this way, I can extend its shelf-life. And yes shopping at Costco can save you money if done right.
- Shop the sales. Buy summer fruit when it's on sale to get the best value. I'm generally not too fussy about which fruits. I just choose what's on sale and looks good.
