Date Night Berry Cobbler

Gluten Free Date Night Berry Cobbler

I recently rediscovered a recipe torn out of Sunset Magazine; Single Girl Melty Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake and I've found it to be a great cure to a night home alone. It's small, comes together quick, and I always have all the ingredients in my kitchen. The only problem is that I'm not a big chocolate person, in the end I always prefer a fruit based dessert instead.

This month's Gluten Free Ratio Rally gave me the perfect opportunity to try and create a similar small and quick treat, as a cobbler instead of a chocolate cake. Again, this recipe is all made of things I always tend to have around the kitchen. You could use different berries if you prefer - I'm stuck with blueberries and cherries (yes, not actually a berry) since I can't have most others. That doesn't bother me in the least since they also happen to be my favorites. While I could easily see myself enjoying this entire cobbler myself, it's also been the perfect size to share with my husband.

For the cobbler topping, my ratio ended up being 7 parts flour, 7 parts milk, 2 parts butter, and 1 part sugar.

Gluten Free Date Night Berry Cobbler

Date Night (or Husband Works Nights) Berry Cobbler


For the filling:
1 cup (about 20) fresh cherries, de-stemmed and pitted (or other berries of choice)
1/3-1/2 cup fresh blueberries
1/2 tbsp sugar
1/2 tbsp all purpose gluten free flour mix or cornstarch
1/2 tsp psyllium husk


For the topping:
70 grams all purpose gluten free flour mix (40% whole grain and 60% starch)
10 grams sugar
1 tsp psyllium husk
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 pinch salt
20 grams cold butter
70 grams cup milk of choice (I've used both almond and goat)
about 1/2 tbsp melted butter



Heat the oven to 350 degrees.

In a medium bowl, toss the washed berries with sugar, flour mix, and psyllium husk.

Pour the fruit mixture into a 5 inch square baking dish.

In a small bowl, combine whisk the flour mix, sugar, psyllium husk, baking powder, and salt together with a fork.

Cut the cold butter into small pieces and with the fork, mash into the flour mixture until broken down into a crumbled mixture.

Add the milk and mix until combined.

Spread the dough evenly over the fruit and brush with melted butter.

Place in oven and bake for about 45 minutes or until the fruit is bubbling around the edges of the dish.

Allow to cool for at least 10 minutes before enjoying.


Makes enough for one hungry person or the perfect small serving for two.
