At home, I found a recipe for Cherry-Blueberry Cobbler Supreme in Better Homes and Gardens New Baking Book. I also had Trader Joe's frozen blueberries on hand so this worked out perfectly.
cherry-blueberry cobbler supreme
The batter starts out on the bottom and ends up on top of this unique cobbler.
2 cups fresh or frozen unsweetened pitted tart red cherries (or one bag frozen Trader Joe's Cherry/Berry mix)
1 cup fresh or frozen unsweetened blueberries
Cherry juice or water (about 2 cups)
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup milk
1/2-3/4 cup granulated sugar. (I think a 1/2 cup is plenty. It was pretty sweet with just a 1/2)
Powdered sugar (optional)
Ice Cream or light cream (optional)
Thaw fruit if frozen; I set my fruit in a colander over a bowl to collect the excess juice/liquid then poured about a cup of water over the fruit to increase the liquid to the 2 cups necessary. If you are using fresh fruit, measure 2 cups cherry juice or water. Set aside. Grease (spray with non-stick spray) a 3-quart oval baking dish, 9X13X2 inch baking pan or a square 9X9 Pampered Chef pan. Set aside.

Add dry ingredients alternately with milk. Beat until smooth.
