With Labor Day coming up soon, you’ll need some simple and tasty Red White and Blue themed treats for the family to enjoy! This will definitely be a treat for everyone! Simple Triple Berry Tea Cobbler made in a cast iron skillet with blueberries, raspberries, strawberries on top of soft, light and moist tea infused cake.
This treat is my version of a “red, white and blue” dessert for Labor Day. You probably noticed that I don’t go crazy with candy and food-colored holiday treats around here. I try to create a color pallet with real ingredients, versus food coloring and candy. (Not to say that I don’t like to play around with those, it’s just rare.) I find that berries are a great way to “paint” your food and make for a beautiful color pallet (and a tasty one)!
So, for this Labor Day, I will be making this “Red, White and Blue” Berry Tea Cobbler for dessert and serving it with a tall glass of Bigelow tea.
So you know what I did this weekend? I baked something just for fun! I made some Blueberry Green Tea Scones on Sunday morning and I did not take photos or prepare a recipe to be shared, it was just for fun. More like experimenting really but still just as a fun project. The scones turned out so good that I thought to play around some more with infusing tea into baked goods.
Since I was already challenged with creating a tea inspired recipe for Bigelow tea, I decided it was a good time to experiment a little. I wanted to think outside the box, outside the traditional drink recipes, and bake something fun. It came out not only fun, but also tasty and so soft and fluffy.
I always have plenty of tea in my cabinet. Even though I’m quite a coffee addict, I can’t drink coffee all day long. After my (much needed) cup of coffee in the morning, I drink tea while I work. I have to keep my supplies stocked, like 3-4 boxes of tea at all times. I love Bigelow tea and its full flavors. Bigelow takes pride in selecting premium ingredients for their teas and it really shows. They are an American company, family owned for three generations, so quality is at the top of their list. Their handpicked teas are grown in the carefully selected gardens for the best flavor blends. I knew this lemon tea would be perfect to infuse more flavor into my cobbler.
