When you think desserts, you probably don’t think of a BBQ grill. Well, you probably should, because believe it or not, it gives certain desserts so much more delicious flavor.
Case in point: this fruity cobbler. No matter what fruit combo you choose, these grilling additions to your cobbler will make it insanely delicious… especially with this buttery biscuit topping.
Tasty has created an all-encompassing guide that will teach you how to make the ultimate cobbler, crumble, or crisp, all using a grill!
Want to learn these cobbler grilling hacks? Let’s get started by grabbing a recipe. I prefer their recipe for the cobbler, just because of the biscuit topping. Yum!
A classic cobbler is topped with pie crust batter. Tasty mixes it up a bit by topping it with biscuits. Here’s what you’ll need to make these yummy biscuits:
- milk or cream
- granulated sugar
- baking powder
- raw sugar for the top
For exact amounts, be sure to watch Tasty’s video below. Now on to your filling. Here’s what you’ll need to make the perfect filling for you.
- 8 cups of fruit (you can try a mixture of berries, peaches by themselves, or any other summery fruit. The folks at Tasty mixed blueberries and peaches)
- granulated sugar
- a binder (flour, cornstarch, or tapioca. All of them work)
- an acid (like lemon juice. Add the zest too for some extra flavor!)
- vanilla extract or bean
Once again, for exact amounts, be sure to watch Tasty‘s video below. But of course, adjust your filling to make it taste however you’d like it to taste.
Now for the most important part: the grill. The grill will add some amazing flavor, and if you do the additional step of grilling your fruit, you’ll really be able to taste the hints of smoke from the grill.
Personally, I think the smokiness works super well with the sweetness of the fruit and the butteriness of the biscuits. It’s way better than any other cobbler I’ve tried!
So, how do you do it? After preparing your filling and topping, preheat your grill to 350 degrees F. Grill for about an hour and a half, but check after an hour.
If you chose the biscuit topping and the biscuits are browning a bit too quickly, just add foil on top to tent it. It’ll allow everything to cook thoroughly, and once everything is browned on top and bubbly on the inside, you’re done!
