Mixed Berry Fruit Cobbler with Pecan Topping will be your new favorite and easy dessert. Taking help from frozen fruit that is topped with a delicious sweet, biscuit topping with nutty pecans, that is baked to bubbly perfection.
Everyone loves a fruit cobbler and this might just be the easiest dessert because you can make it the day ahead, then reheat before serving. You can make this cobbler year-round with fresh seasonal berries, or frozen.
I always have frozen fruits in my freezer because I use them every day in my smoothies and even when the fruit is not in season, I can use them all year round.
The fruit in this Mixed Berry Fruit Cobbler with Pecan Topping is mixed with orange zest and creates a delicious sauce while it bakes that is thickened by the cornstarch.
The topping is something different that I customized to taste just like the holidays. Nutty from the pecans with warm spices like cinnamon and nutmeg. Top with whipped cream or ice cream and you have one amazing holiday dessert that everyone will love.
Recommended Pan Sizes
I used a 9 1/2 -inch (24 cm) 1.25 quart (2.5 pint) round baking dish for this recipe. A 8 x 8-inch (20.3 cm) or 7 x 6-inch (18 x 15 cm) rectangle baking dish would also work.
1/4 cup (55 grams) unsalted butter, plus more for greasing the pan
1 large egg, beaten
2/3 cup (160 ml) whole milk
For the filling:
Preheat oven to 350°F/177 °C.
Generously butter a 9 ½-inch round baking dish.
Add the berries to a bowl and add the sugar, orange zest, cinnamon, nutmeg and cornstarch, mix well. Transfer to the baking dish.
For the topping:
To a mixing bowl add the flour, pecans, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and sugar, mix. Use your fingers to rub the butter into the dry mix until it resembles crumbs. Stir in the egg and milk until well mixed.
Use a 2-inch ice cream scoop to spoon the batter over the berries in an even layer. Bake for 35-45 minutes (depending on your oven) until the top is golden brown and the berries are bubbling.
You can use fresh or frozen berries. Just defrost the frozen berries at room temperature before using.

I am going to make this for Thanksgiving. Can I use different nuts? I’m not a fan of pecans.
Almonds would be a delicious substitute as they get a lovely and nutty flavor when baked. Please come back and tell me how you liked it.
