Very Berry Chocolate Chip Cobbler
- Yield: 8-12 servings
- For filling:
- 10cups berries (combo of blueberries, raspberries, and sliced strawberries)
- 2tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- 1cup sugar
- 2tablespoons tapioca flour
- 1/4cup all-purpose flour
- 1/8teaspoon salt
- For biscuits:
- 2/3cup almond milk
- 1tablespoon apple cider vinegar
- 2cups all-purpose flour
- 2 1/2teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4teaspoon salt
- 1/4cup sugar
- 8tablespoons non-hydrogenated margarine
- 1cup chocolate chips
- For sprinkling:
- 1tablespoon sugar
- 1/2teaspoon ground cinnamon
- Prepare the filling: Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Mix all the ingredients together in a 9×13-inch baking dish. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 20 minutes.
- In the meantime, prepare the biscuit topping. Combine the milk and vinegar in a measuring cup and set aside to curdle. In a large mixing bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir in sugar. Add the margarine by the tablespoonful, cutting it into the flour with your fingertips or a pastry cutter, until large crumbs form. Add the milk/vinegar mixture and gently stir a few times to combine. Fold in the chocolate chips.
- On a separate plate, mix together the cinnamon and sugar. Remove the pan from the oven, discard the foil, and top the filling with tablespoon- size dollops of biscuit batter. Sprinkle with the cinnamon sugar.
- Bake for an additional 20 minutes. The fruit should be very bubbly and the biscuits on top sunken in but firm where peeking out from the fruit.
- Remove the cobbler from the oven and let cool for 15 minutes or so before digging in. Serve warm with vegan vanilla ice cream.
