nothin' says lovin' like somethin' from the oven



mmm... can you imagine what i made with these huge blackberries? and let me tell you that, honestly, i am not the biggest fan of blackberries. but these berries where sweet and lovely. i used them, because i'm sure you have guessed by now, to make a cobbler. i have an old recipe that has been in my friend's family for many generations and now i am going to share it with you. it's super simple and super delicious. (i will type it as its written, but make a few notes.)


Mam Maw's Fruit Cobbler


2 c. fresh fruit (the original is for peaches... these berries were so big, i needed 4 measured cups)

1 c. sugar

1 stick butter

3/4 c. milk

2 tsp. baking powder

dash salt

1 c. flour


Melt butter in 9x13 inch baking dish. Mix sugar, flour, baking powder, salt, and milk. Pour over melted butter. Put fruit over top. Sprinkle 1 1/2 cups of sugar over top. Bake 1 hour or until crust is golden brown @ 350 degrees. (Maybe 30 minutes is enough.)


*Okay, while you preheat the oven, put a stick of butter in your baking dish and put it in the oven to melt. Mix the sugar, flour, baking powder, salt, and milk. (I add a dash of cinnamon, too.) By now, your butter should be melted and the oven heated, so pour the wet ingredients over your melted butter and follow the above directions. And, I usually have to bake mine for about 45 minutes. Enjoy!

YUM-O!!! The easiest cobbler recipe ever! You can adjust the sugar that's sprinkled over the top according to the sweetness of the fruit-- I usually use less- maybe 1/2 cup on top.
