When Life Gives You Mulberries

We inherited a  LARGE mulberry tree.  It is an attractive tree - most of the time.  About this time of year, it is annoying and messy!  Last night, however, I served our guests this delicious cobbler.  The recipe was the first that came up when I googled "Mulberry Cobbler"It was just delicious!

Crispy Mulberry Cobbler
  • 1 Tbsp. flour
  • 1 Tbsp. sugar
  • 3 c. mulberries
  • 1 c. flour
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/3 c. butter or shortening
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  1. Gently rinse mulberries in cool water.  Combine the Tbsp. of flour and sugar in medium bowl and toss gently with berries.
  2. Combine flour, sugar and baking powder in mixing bowl. Cut in butter with pastry blender till mixture resembles coarse crumbs.  Add in egg; mix just enough to moisten.
  3. Grease 8-inch square baking dish. Fill with berry mix. Crumble topping over berries. Bake at 350 degrees till slightly golden, 30 to 35 min.
  4. Serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
I baked the night before serving and covered with foil.  It was delicious unheated—it was soft and moist – not crispy.

  1. I know mulberry trees are messy but how wonderful to have the fruit! I nurtured a volunteer mulberry tree in our alley for a number of years and enjoyed the fruit until the city got different trash trucks and surveyed each alley sending notices to residents to remove or trim trees, etc. The city deemed the tree was on our neighbors side so they got the notice and one day, it was just gone! I was afraid it was in the way. We enjoyed it while we could. Mulberry trees can get huge in time. My parents have them in their shelter belt and as a kid I ate a lot of mulberries! Your recipe looks easy too. Enjoy the mulberries!
