Ingredients

Filling

  • 3 cups blackberries
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch or arrowroot powder

Biscuit topping

  • 3/4 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup vegetable shortening
  • 1/2 cup plain, unsweetened non-dairy milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons turbinado sugar or coarse sugar

Instructions

  • For the filling: Preheat grill to roughly 425F, I typically light the outside burners and keep them at medium-low (on the dial). Lightly oil an 8-inch cast iron skillet and place blackberries, blueberries, sugar, and starch inside, stirring until evenly coated. Smooth berries into an even layer.
  • For the biscuit topping: In a large mixing bowl, sift all-purpose flour, whole wheat pastry flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt, together. Using a fork or a pastry cutter, cut shortening into flour until the mixture resembles small crumbles.
  • Next, add non-dairy milk and vanilla to the flour mixture, and fold together until there are no dry spots. No need to mix until smooth. Place 2-tablespoon-sized dollops over the top of the berry mixture, then sprinkle turbinado sugar over the top.
  • Place cobbler in the center of the grill, and cook for 30-35 minutes, or until the biscuits are lightly browned on top. You may need to monitor the grill heat, as it will typically increase the longer it's on. Once baked, allow cobbler to cool for 5 to 10 minutes before serving. I love it with vegan whip or vanilla ice cream on top!
