Double Layer Blueberry Pineapple Cobbler
Just in case you're wondering if summer is over, this Double Layer Blueberry Pineapple Cobbler recipe will prove that it's not. Honestly, what's not to love about blueberries and pineapple? This recipe is so good it is about to change the whole cobbler game as they are meant to go in individual jars with the right portion size. The dessert is layered with a blueberry cobbler in the bottom, and the top layer is filled with pineapple cobbler that uses flaky, sweet pie dough. This recipe is also perfect to use other seasonal fruits if you don’t have blackberries readily available. Think peaches, nectarines or even apples! There is something very unmatchable and tasty yet healthy when you combine real fruits in dessert recipes. A major reason why berries are also easy to bake with is that there is no peeling, slicing or dicing involved. You can just use them straight from the box to making the filling. This recipe can be made for any occasion all year round, and it's also a perfect idea for brunch or picnics. You can also serve it along with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for extra fun.
Because of the nutritional value of blueberries in this dessert, it is not only a great way of getting kids to eat healthily but also allows them to enjoy a much deserved sweet treat. The nutrients in blueberries help aid the immune system mainly because blueberries are high in Vitamin B6 and C. It is also a good source of dietary fiber and iron, low in sodium, free of cholesterol and fat. You don't need any better reasons than these to eat them more often or use them in baking dessert recipes. The nutritional value of pineapple is not to be underestimated. It contains enzymes, which have been shown to be an effective anti-inflammatory, muscle relaxant, and digestive aid. Other essential pineapple nutrients are vitamin C and A. For the best quality of pineapples, always look for Costa Rica- or Hawaii-grown pineapples. Did you know that in Hawaii pineapples are also used to make wine?
Usually, fruit fillings can be made in advance and frozen up to a year or so. This option is particularly a good one if you bake a lot or have too many family gatherings or other occasions. On the day of baking, just thaw an hour before and resume as usual with the recipe. If sealed and stored properly, fruit fillings don’t lose their freshness and flavor. Another way of making berry cobblers in the off season is to stock up the berries while they’re in season and freeze them in airtight containers. Just make sure to use a zip lock bag and release the air out. This tip also saves your money in the long run from buying fruit in the off season which can be expensive. To make it a bit more fun you can add a few tablespoons of bourbon whiskey, rum or brandy on top once the cobbler is fully baked. You can also use other spices in the place of cinnamon like ginger, nutmeg or pumpkin pie spice to the crust.
