It’s mulberry season here in Ohio, which means mulberry cobbler time.  Actually, my preferred way of eating fresh mulberries is piled on a bowl of homemade granola cereal, but we usually make a mulberry cobbler too.  We do not just have mulberry cobbler at this time of the year.  If it is a good mulberry season, we freeze a few bags of mulberries for cobblers in the winter time.

Mulberries were new to me when we moved up here.  They do not grow in GA.  I am curious which States mulberries do grow.  If you have mulberries in your State, I’d like to hear what State you live in.  If you do not live where mulberries grow, this recipe can be used for blackberries or black raspberries as well.

When we rented, there was no mulberry trees on the land.  Paul would stop on his way home from work along the highways and byways and pick berries from there.  This spring, we were delighted to discover our little homestead has a couple of mulberry trees.  Neither tree is a plentiful amount for freezing, but they produce ample for fresh eating on granola cereal and a mulberry cobbler or two.

Some people may not call this recipe a “true” cobbler.  There are varying opinions of what constitutes a cobbler and how a cobbler must be made.  If you are in the group that thinks biscuit type dough must be dropped onto a berry mixture, I won’t argue with you.  You may very well be correct in calling that cobbler.  This is simply how we grew up eating blackberry “cobblers” and is what I am familiar with.   But do not let a disagreement in name keep you from trying it.  Call it what you wish, “mulberry pan muffins” if you prefer.

When it is first baked and warm out of the oven, we eat it with ice-cream.  The next morning, we eat it with milk.  Paul often pours his milk over it in a bowl, and I often drink my milk on the side and eat them as square muffins.

Mulberry Cobbler (or blackberry)

1 cup flour

1 ½ tsp. baking powder

¼ tsp. salt

¼ cup (half a stick) butter

1/3 cup honey

1 cup milk

2 cups berries

I always like to save work and dirtying and extra dish if I can.  So, I melt the butter in my 7×11 baking dish while the oven pre-heats to 350.  While the butter is melting and oven pre-heating, mix the flour, baking powder and salt in a small bowl and measure up the remaining ingredients.  After the butter is melted, stir in the honey, then the milk and flour mixture.  Stir just enough that there remains no dry flour.  The mixture may be a little lumpy.  Sprinkle the berries over the top and do not stir.  Bake for about 35 minutes.
