This past Christmas my cousin made of the best cobblers ever and I’ve yet to order one from a restaurant. This week was the week to clean out the fridge and pantry. As a result, there were still leftover blueberries and strawberries from New Year’s and an old fashion fruit cobbler mix purchased on sale from Aldi. Therefore, a decision was made to made a mixed berry cobbler. Totally not being creative here but we followed directions outlined on the cobbler mix. Therefore, the look and taste definitely does not compared to the freshly made cobbler from scratch. Although this dessert is high on calories it carries some healthy ingredients that have demonstrated resourceful in healing, preventing and evening treating disease, two of which were mentioned in previous posts.
1 box of the old fashion fruit cobbler mix from Baker’s Corner = <$2 on sale = 110 calories/serving
1 large egg = 70 calories
6 strawberries, sliced = 24 calories
16 tbsp blueberries = 85 calories
2 tbsp sugar = 100 calories
6 tbsp melted butter = 300 calories (50 calories/tbsp.
Good news: Cleaned out three leftover products from the fridge and pantry (strawberries, blueberries and cobbler mix).
Mediocre news: Definitely can tell that the taste of the end product came from a prepared mix.
Take home message: attempt to make a cobbler with available fruit from scratch.
