TWD: "NOT SO" MIXED BERRY COBBLERThis week's recipe was chosen by Beth of Our Sweet Life.
OK. I'm so embarrassed of this post. There, I said it! This is not something I'm proud of for a few reasons: #1, I did not follow the recipe and instead of using actual mixed berries (consisting of blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, strawberries) I thought I'd be different and creative by using grapes, melons, peaches, pears and honeydew. Why? Who in their right mind would actually find a grape cobbler delicious? Yuck! The top baked beautifully, just as it should have, but the underlying layer of fruits were very wet and mushy and literally looked like they were drenched in a pool of fruit juices. I realized once this was already completed that fruits like the one's I used must have retained a lot of water; more so than the berries suggested and that is why my cobbler came out the way it did-soupy. I tried to spice it up by pairing a slice with vanilla bean ice cream but that hardly worked! If ice cream can't do the trick then I guess this recipe was doomed from the get-go! I will definitely make this again using the proper fruits. Check out what this really should look like at the TWD blogroll, here!
