I’ve been brainstorming and researching on some fun gender reveal recipes. However, most used dye (yuck!) and lots of sugar (I always can live with a little sugar) and made mostly from a box (yeah… that’s not going to work for me). So, I produced these little babies to help me reveal what gender my little baby is.
I love my CorningWare especially my little ramekins. They bake evenly, are really sturdy, and clean easily. They conveniently come in a pack of 4 on Amazon and very reasonably priced. Definitely worth having a few on hand for fun recipes such as these mini cobblers! Oh, you still want to know the sex of our baby?
Well, last night I had a vivid dream. In my dream, I was with my husband having the ultrasound and the sonographer announced ‘it’s a girl!’ My husband and I headed to the ultrasound this morning both confident we were having another baby girl. I couldn’t wait to share these mini raspberry cobblers announcing we were having a girl!
The sonographer clarified one more time whether or not we wanted to know the gender. While my husband and I held hands, we assured her we wanted to know. We were anticipating an ‘it’s a girl!’ but instead we heard ‘it’s a boy!’ As much as I loved those mini raspberry cobblers, the blueberry mini cobblers get the spotlight today. We’re having a boy mid August! We’re very excited and incredibly blessed that he appears healthy and strong. Now… I seriously need your help with names! We’ve got nothin’.
- 2 cups fresh or frozen organic raspberries for a girl or fresh or frozen organic blueberries (for a boy)
- 1 large orange peeled
- 2 Tbs brown sugar
For Cobbler Topping:
- 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 egg white lightly beaten
- 2 Tbs coconut oil melted
Cinnamon Sugar Topping:
- 1 tsp sugar
- 1/8 tsp ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350.
Spray four 7 oz (200 mL) ramekins lightly with olive oil cooking spray and scoop 1/2 cup of berries in each.
In a Vitamix blender, blend orange and 2 Tbs brown sugar together on high until pureed and smooth. Pour about 1/8 cup of orange mixture over the berries.
In a small bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, and baking powder. Stir well. Add egg and coconut oil. Mix until crumbly dough is formed. Evenly sprinkle dough over each cobbler making sure tops are well covered.
Combine cinnamon and sugar. Sprinkle over crumb mixture.
Bake for 25 to 30 minutes until tops are golden brown. Serve warm.
I am stuck on boys names right now too! I don’t know why boys are harder. My first I named Corbin-my husband didn’t like it at first but now he can’t imagine him with another name. But we are having a hard time finding a good name for this one-I am due in June. Jameson or Gavin is ones we have talked about. I say don’t go too crazy and weird…but I also don’t love to trendy either. Good luck and congrats! I love my little boy-he has been so fun!
Thanks, Marissa! I agree, boy names are tough. I have about 5 girl names I love, but nothing for boys. Love Jameson and Gavin! Yeah for baby boys this summer!
CONGRATULATIONS! Yay! I’m so stinkin’ excited you are having a little boy! One of each…just like us! My vote for names: Ty Jr. or Magic Mike. 🙂
Hahaha… thanks, Erin! I would have to say ‘Magic Mike’ just like I do when we play tennis. Oh, I hate his trick shots.
Yay! Congratulations Kami, I am so excited for you! A couple boy names that I like (but not my top couple – can’t share those!) are Noah, Walker and Colton. Good luck deciding!
Thanks, Aimee! Definitely keep your favorites to yourself. I do like Noah as well. I’m excited to see your little one here soon!
Congrats Kami! Boys are so much fun!! As for names, I got nothing. Xander was the only name I really loved when I was coming up with names.
Thanks, Holly! Why are boy names so ridiculously difficult to come up with?
How fun! CONGRATS! Good luck with names, that was always so hard for us. Both our boys weren’t named until right before we left the hospital…nothing like a panicked last minute decision! 😉
YAY! Congratulations! So exciting and fun to have one of each gender. Boy names are seriously so hard. Especially since my family is loaded with boys! It seemed like all the names were used up. We literally bought a book of names. We read through them and highlighted our favorites and the wrote down combinations of names with our last name. Then narrowed it down little by little. Good luck! We love your adorable little (growing) family!
Thanks, Julie! I love the name Andrew… so well done. I definitely think we’ll need to follow your suggestion and get a book with names. Process of elimination, right?
Mouth is watering! Can’t wait to try it!
And congrats on the baby boy!
CONGRATS! Baby boys are so fun! Love the recipe and cute way to share the news too!
