Blackberry Biscuit Cobbler

October 7th, 2012 by Sam Feldman

Fall is here! If you were in Eureka Springs this past weekend, you would have had your heavy jacket on and carried your umbrella (just in case) and got to watching the trees start to really turn red in earnest. The heat’s been turned on and the fireplaces lit. So how ’bout a nice warm breakfast recipe to try? If you can’t get here, then try this at home:

Breakfast at the Bridgeford House Bed and Breakfast Eureka Springs AR


Blackberry Biscuit Cobbler

Biscuit dough:
3 cups all-purpose flour
4 tsp sugar
4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 cups whipping cream

1 cup sugar
2 TB cornstarch
1/4 cup water
2-16 ounce packages of frozen or fresh berries (6 cups)

In a large bowl stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and whipping cream with a fork until well combined. Set aside.

In a large saucepan combine 1 cup sugar, 2 TB cornstarch, and 1/4 cup water. Stir in 6 cups (two 16-ounce) packages) fresh or frozen blackberries (or raspberries or cherries). Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly. Divide mixture amount eight (could stretch to 10) ramekins. Drop 1 or 2 mounds of batter on top of each.

Bake at 375 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes or until topping is golden brown and mixture is bubbly. Makes 8-10 servings.

We try to offer different recipes from time to time – Sam, our main breakfast cook, has a very short attention span – :)!

Therefore, here is a recipe to lusciousness:

12 slices day-old bread, cut into 1” cubes
2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, cut into 1” cubes
1 cup fresh blueberries
12 eggs, beaten
2 cups milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup maple syrup

1 cup white sugar
2 tb cornstarch
1 cup water
1 cup fresh blueberries
1 tb butter

Lightly grease 9X13 baking dish. Arrange half of bread cubes in the dish, and top with cream cheese cubes. Sprinkle 1 cup blueberries over cream cheese and top with remaining bread cubes.
In a large bowl, mix the eggs, milk, vanilla extract, and syrup. Pour over the bread cubes. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
Remove the dish from fridge about 30 minutes before baking. Preheat over to 350 degrees F.
Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Uncover and continue baking 25 to 30 minutes until center is firm and surface is lightly browned.
In a medium saucepan, mix the sugar, cornstarch and water. Bring to a boil. Stirring constantly, cook 3 to 4 minutes. Mix in the remaining 1 cup blueberries. Reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes, until the blueberries burst. Stir in the butter and pour over the baked French toast.
