I found this recipe on Food Network and it is courtesy of the ever fabulous Ree Drummond aka The Pioneer Woman. Ree (we are on a first name basis) has it on her website too and even has another version! (that one looks more traditional) I will have to try it and give a side by side comparison! I had a favorite cobbler recipe years ago and I can’t find it!!
What you need:
- 1/2 stick melted butter, plus more for greasing pan
- 1 and 1/4 cups plus 2 tbs sugar
- 1 cup self-rising flour
- 1 cup whole milk
- 2 cups fresh or frozen blackberries (I used frozen mixed berries)
- whipped cream and or ice cream for serving
What you do:
Preheat over to 350. Grease a 3 qt baking dish with butter. I doubled the berries and tripled the cake (hindsight says don’t do that but I always double cobbler topping and assumed this recipe would be similar). I like to freeze things like this when Russell or I are wanting something treatish that I have it handy.
In a medium bowl, whisk 1 cup of sugar and the flour and milk. Whisk in the melted butter.
Rinse the blackberries and pat them dry. Pour the batter into the baking dish.
Sprinkle the berries evenly over the batter. Sprinkle 1/4 cup sugar over the berries.
Bake until golden brown and bubbly, about 1 hour. When 10 minutes of the cooking time remains, sprinkle with the 2 tbs of sugar. Mine took a lot longer to cook – again too much batter 🙂
Top with whipped cream and/or ice cream.
The verdict:Very good but actually follow the recipe next time – no need to have extra cobbler 🙂
He liked it! Clean plate!
