I’ve been craving cobbler lately and it’s on my recipe bucket list, so what better time to make it than when blackberries are on major sale at my grocery store. Cobbler is great. The classic southern dessert is delicious and flexible. Freshly baked pastry combined with fruit and ice cream is hard to beat. The recipe I used is easy as can be so there’s no excuse to pass on this delicious dessert. Here’s what you need:
6 Tbsp butter
1 cup flour
1/2 to 3/4 cup sugar depending on desired sweetness
1.5 tsp baking powder
3/4 cup milk
2 cups fresh blackberries (or other fruit)
Start by pre-heating your oven to 325F and place the butter in 9×11” baking dish to melt in preheating oven. While the oven is preheating, prepare you batter. Mix flour, sugar, and baking powder in a bowl, then add milk and mix until smooth. I’d recommend sifting the dry ingredients because my batter ended up a bit lumpy without sifting. When the butter is melted, drizzle the batter evenly over the melted butter (no need to mix). Sprinkle your fruit over the batter and bake at 325F for 45 minutes or until the risen and starts to brown.
This recipe only takes an hour at most including baking time. It’s so easy and uses just a few simple ingredients. The sweet cake along with the fresh berries and ice cream cannot be matched. This is a perfect summer dessert, especially if you can get your hands on some real ripe fruit. I hope y’all get a chance to try this tasty recipe.. It’s so easy there’s no excuse!
