This weeks Tuesdays with Dorie is brought to us by Beth of Our Sweet Life. She chose the Mixed Berry Cobbler on pages 416-417. I knew my family wouldn't go for the mixed berries, so I went to the frozen fruit section of the market and found
Frozen Tropical Mixed Blend. It has strawberries, bananas, and mangoes. My family would eat this.
I followed Dories directions exactly, cutting the recipe down to 1/4. I added to the topping some homemade vanilla extract, and cinnamon. It was perfect. The berry mixture was the same with my fruit substitution. I made it in a 4" crock with a total cooking time of 48 minutes. I was worried that my choice of fruit would not work out, I mean who has heard of mangoes and bananas in a cobbler? But it came out of the oven looking just right...
And the taste was wonderful. With a scoop of ice cream on top as recommended, it was the perfect after dinner dessert.
