Sweet mixed berries topped with biscuit-like dough makes an absolutely delicious dessert--perfect for small dinner parties!
  • 6 cups fresh or frozen mixed berries (I used strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries!)
  • 3 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp fresh orange zest
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp salted butter, chilled and cut into small cubes
  • ⅓ cup buttermilk
  • 2 tbsp peanut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Grease an 8x8-inch or a smaller casserole baking dish with butter or oil.
  2. In a large bowl, toss the berries with flour, sugar and zest. Transfer the berries to the baking dish and set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and cinnamon. Cut in the butter using a pastry cutter until small pea-sized pieces are formed.
  4. In a small bowl or measuring cup, whisk together the buttermilk, oil and vanilla. Add the buttermilk-oil mixture to the dry ingredients and mix until just moistened. Do not over mix. Drop the batter onto the fruit forming 6 even mounds. Sprinkle the tops with more sugar.
  5. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until fruit is bubbly and top is golden. Let stand for at least 10 minutes before serving and enjoy!
