A dish with low FODMAP berry cobbler

Low FODMAP berry cobbler

I thought it was about time that I made a low FODMAP berry cobbler for dessert.

This delicious warm fruit dessert is a perfect end to a delicious dinner.

I made a gluten-free cobbler with blueberries and strawberries.

What is the difference between a crumble, crisp, and cobbler?

Crumbles, crisps and cobblers. They are all desserts with fruit and dough, but each version is slightly different.

A crumble has a topping of shortcrust pastry. A crisp also has a topping of shortcrust pastry, but this topping also contains oatmeal in addition to flour.

This makes the topping slightly crispier. Hence the name crisp.

Here you can find a recipe for a low FODMAP and gluten-free strawberry raspberry crisp.

Finally the cobbler. That is the recipe I am going to share with you here.

A cobbler has a cookie dough topping. You divide this dough into flattened circles over the fruit, leaving the sides of the baking dish free.

This makes a cobbler look a bit like a “cobbled road”. Hence the name.

How to make this low FODMAP berry cobbler

This recipe is made quickly. For the filling, mix the fruit you use (I used frozen blueberries and strawberries) with some cornstarch and a little sugar.

Prefer your dessert less sweet? Then you can also leave out the sugar in the filling.

You make the topping by stirring gluten-free flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl.

Add cold butter in cubes and knead it with your fingers or mix it into a crumbly dough.

Then you make lactose-free buttermilk by mixing 100 ml lactose-free milk with 1 tsp white wine vinegar. Stir this and let it stand for a moment.

Add this to the dough little by little until you have a smooth dough that is not too wet or too dry.

To make the topping, take a little dough in your hand and flatten it into a round disk. Place this on top of the fruit.

You always place the rounds with the sides on top of each other so that a connecting layer of dough is created.

You can leave the sides of the baking dish free. This is how the “cobbled road” of the cobbler is created.

Then the low FODMAP berry cobbler goes into the oven for about an hour and then your dessert is ready!

A cobbler is best served warm with a scoop of (lactose-free) vanilla ice cream on top. An ideal dessert for Thanksgiving or Christmas.
