Keep reading to find out how to make this incredible dish. 

Gather the ingredients

Are you ready to experience this fantastic dessert? Before we get down to business, we need to ensure you have all of the necessary items to throw together the cobbler. 

You will need a few cups of raspberries in addition to white sugar and brown sugar. Continuing with the frequently used baking items theme, you will also need all-purpose flour and butter. If you like to bake, we're sure that you have a lot of these items at home already.

The remaining items that you will need are heavy cream, baking powder, and salt. Now, it's time to roll up your sleeves and get down to business.

Coat the raspberries and melt the butter

Before you do anything else, preheat the oven to 350 F. Then, grab a mixing bowl and throw in the raspberries. Be sure that you have washed them ahead of time, just as you would if you were just eating them plain. Then, add a tablespoon of white sugar and a tablespoon of brown sugar. The last item you need to add is a tablespoon of the all-purpose flour. Once everything is in the bowl, mix it together with a spoon so that each and every raspberry gets coated with sugar and flour. 

In the meantime, put the butter in a microwave-safe dish and melt it until it becomes liquid.

Mix the remaining ingredients

Take out another mixing bowl and get ready to add a few more ingredients. For starters, you need to pour in the remaining all-purpose flour and the heavy cream. Next, add a cup of white sugar and the melted butter. You also need to add the baking powder and salt. A mixer is the best way to combine this, but you can also do it by hand, says Olayinka. "It should be the consistency of a thick pancake batter," she adds.

Assemble and bake your cobbler

Take the batter that you just made and put it in an oven-safe dish (an 8x8-inch casserole dish is fine). Then, using a spoon, place the raspberries on top evenly. To add an extra little bit of sweetness, sprinkle two more tablespoons of white sugar over the top of the cobbler. 

Now pop the cobbler into your preheated oven and set your timer for 40 minutes. As every oven is a little different, be sure to keep an eye on the cobbler in case it gets done a little ahead of time.

Remove the cobbler from oven and enjoy

Once your timer dings, it's time to take the cobbler out of the oven. Remove the dish using oven mitts and then leave it to cool for about 10 minutes.

After the 10 minutes are up, slice the cobbler and enjoy! Olayinka recommends serving this with whipped cream or ice cream, but she shares that the dessert is also okay to eat by itself. We don't think that you will have any leftovers because this dessert is so yummy, but if you do, Olayinka says that you can keep them for two to three days. Enjoy!
