I made this using all blueberries from a 5# box that we just picked up. I wound up using unsweetened coconut because it happened to be all we had. I used 1/3 cup of sugar in the topping to compensate. I used the same technique as the reluctant housechef to prepare the topping. It seemed like a good idea to me. It is a wonderful dessert and my husband and I highly recommend it!
Do you recommend unsweetened or sweetened coconut?
Hi Amanda, I think the original recipe used unsweetened, but you could probably use either. Check it with a taste test. If you have unsweetened, you’ll definitely need the added sugar. If you use sweetened, you probably don’t need the added sugar, but taste just the same.
Terrific!!! I made this tonight it was awesome…I used agave instead of sugar, tasted great. Thank you for a great easy to follow dessert.
Delicious! This is the second time I’ve made it and it’s a keeper. So easy to make. I only have an 8×8 pan, but that doesn’t seem to make a difference thank goodness. The first time I made it, I didn’t cut the butter in enough and the topping clumped – still delicious, but left parts of the cobbler bare. This time, I mixed everything but the coconut and walnuts first, using a pastry cutter or mixer (I think that’s what the tool is – you use it to cut in the butter into pastry dough)to get that nice crumb consistency, then I added in the walnuts and coconut last. I was able to cover the cobbler evenly and it came out beautifully – thank you!
Can you use frozen blueberries with this recipe?
I have to say this cobbler looks divine!
I have now used this topping recipes several times.The topping works great on canned peaches that have been rinsed of their high fructose syrup and tossed with brown sugar. Also instead of white sugar in the the toppping I have substituted maple syrup and brown sugar. The brown sugar version was out of this world!! Also I didn’t have any nuts but it was all still good!I got compliments on this each time I made it!
I have 2 comments. My husband says that this is a MUST during blueberry season. I made it with blueberries and strawberries and it was wonderful. My thought is that it would be great in the fall with apples and cranberries. I plan to try it then, as well. I loved how tart the fruit was, and how crunchy the topping was. We ate the whole thing.
I made the berry cobbler for father’s day for my husband, he’s thanked me twice so far for it. It is outstanding!!!! Thanks
Would almonds or pecans work just as well for those with walnut allergies?
It sure looks yummy! I may have to hit up the farmers market in Davis this weekend for some fresh berries! Thanks Elise
This sounds delicious!! However, I’m not a huge fan of coconut. Would it be okay to leave it out?
