Cast Iron Cherry-Berry Cobbler

Did you know it’s possible to bake a cobbler on your gas grill? This summer, we’ve really enjoyed our new BakerStone Pizza Oven Box, which converts a gas grill into a gourmet pizza oven. But you can prepare more than pizza in this portable oven. Using my cast iron skillet, I baked an old-fashioned berry cobbler (Cast Iron Cherry-Berry Cobbler) right on the grill. Kind of awesome, right?!

You may have heard this basic cobbler recipe called Mountain Cobbler or 3-Cup Cobbler. Growing up, my Mom and Mamaw B. would make cobblers out of whatever fruit was in season — blackberries, peaches, strawberries — that’s the beauty of this recipe. You can use your favorite fruit or berries and it’s delicious every time!

We’ve made several homemade pizza “pies” in our BakerStone Pizza Oven Box this year, but I wanted to see how baking a dessert “pie” would work. One evening after baking a Salami Pizza with Garlic Dijon Aioli, I popped in the cast iron skillet and let our dessert bake while we enjoyed our pizza and socialized outdoors. I had a a few fresh blueberries and cherries — not quite enough of each for the recipe, but together they were the perfect amount, so Cast Iron Cherry-Berry Cobbler it was!

You’ve got to just try and imagine the aroma as this delicious dessert was baking and bubbling inside the pizza oven. Maybe this video I shared on Instagram will help. (click play when you hover on the photo)

A still photo just doesn’t do this Memorial Day weekend berry cobbler justice! #foodie #dessert #comingsoontotheblog #lodgecastiron

Of course, this cobbler can be baked in your kitchen oven as well, but baking it outdoors was fun! The pizza oven is a steel box lined with baking stones that sits right on your grill. This nifty grill accessory is available at Sam’s Club locations across the United States or online.
