On her website, Ree had a debate about cobbler recipes. Now, I’m not normally one for cobbler, but when I saw her pics and saw how easy it was, I figured I’d give it a try. This recipe isn’t a true cobbler however, it seems somewhere between a berry buttermilk cake and a cobbler, I think. But it is nonetheless delicious, and pretty simple to toss together. I had been itching to make something with blackberries, so that's what I used, but you can use whatever berries you wish.
- 1 stick Butter
- 1-¼ cup Sugar
- 1 cup Self-Rising Flour (or substitute 1 C all-purpose flour plus 1 ¼ tsp baking powder plus 1/8 tsp salt)
- 1 cup Milk
- 2 cups Blackberries (frozen Or Fresh)
- 1 tbls lemon zest (optional)
- ¼ C Sugar for sprinkling
- 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. The directions don't come with size, but by my estimates this is good for anywhere between an 8"-10" dish, round or square. You just need to watch it.
- 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. ¼ C seemed like a lot to me so I skimped out on this and I wish I hadn't, because I think it would have added great texture and taste carmelized on top. Don't be like me -- use the full ¼ C of sugar for sprinkling.
- 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.
