This came from www.thepioneerwoman.com "Ree" is an awesome person that is very talented. If only I could photograph the way she does. She makes ALL of her recipes look so yummy. I think some of her pics make some of us "foodies" drool. In the past I have substituted the blackberries for Strawberries (YUM!) and peach because those were the fruits I had on hand. Either way it was good and gone! I'm never not satisfied after trying one of her recipes. And they all make the house smell so good!
- Melt butter in a microwaveable dish. (Since Zaar is so picky it wouldn't let me put or 1 stick of butter) Pour 1 cup of sugar and flour into a mixing bowl, whisking in milk. Mix well. Then, pour in melted butter and whisk it all well together. Butter a baking dish OR spray with either Bakers Joy or a non stick spray like Pam.
- Now rinse and pat dry the blackberries, (in the ingredients section the amount should have said 2 generous cups of fruit, silly Zaar.). (Or your favorite fruit) Pour the batter into the buttered baking dish. Sprinkle blackberries over the top of the batter; distributing evenly. Sprinkle 1/4 cup (depending on how wid your pan is, you can get away with less) sugar over the top.
- Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 1 hour, or until golden brown and bubbly. If you desire, sprinkle an additional teaspoon of sugar over the cobbler 10 minutes before it's done.
- Let cool slightly and serve warm. Or dig in with a fork if you can't wait, but make sure you have some vanilla ice cream and whip cream to put this cobbler over the edge! (Thn hit the gym in the morning cause this cobbler was worth every guilty minute of it).
I love this cobbler! I use 1/2 cup sugar in mix and 1/4 cup on top with thawed frozen berries and it turns out wonderful.
This was fantastic! Reminded me of the blackberry cobbler that my dad makes, except the sugar on top gives it this nice crispy topping (I added the additional sugar at the end, as well). Can't wait to go blackberry picking so I can make this again. Now I need to find a great recipe for homeade vanilla bean ice cream!
I have made this cake with many different varieties of berries (frozen mixed berries, fresh cranberries at the holidays, blueberries when they are in season) and it has been delicious every time. I usually serve it warm with whipped cream. I also like that it requires just a few ingredients and can be whipped up in no time but tastes like it took more time and effort to prepare.
