Blackberry Cobbler

A co-worker at Huber gave me some tires, for free, and I asked him if I could take him out to lunch. He said no, so then I asked if I could make him a dessert, what did he like? He said anything, but after some thought said a cobbler, no particular fruit. So, with Wanda's advice, I got this recipe for Blackberry Cobbler from the Pioneer Woman blog.

Blackberry Cobbler #1

  • 1 stick Butter
  • 1-1/4 cup Sugar
  • 1 cup Self-Rising Flour
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 2 cups Blackberries (frozen Or Fresh)
Preparation Instructions
  1. Melt butter in a microwavable dish. 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.
  2. Now rinse and pat dry the blackberries. Pour the batter into the buttered baking dish. Sprinkle blackberries over the top of the batter; distributing evenly. Sprinkle ¼ cup sugar over the top.
  3. Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 1 hour, or until golden and bubbly. If you desire, sprinkle an additional teaspoon of sugar over the cobbler 10 minutes before it’s done.
It was pretty delicious. The tartness of the blackberries offset the sweetness of the sugar that was sprinkled on top. Tom said this is one of his favorite things I've ever made.
