Robin and Julie from Brilliant Moms is tempting my taste buds this Monday morning! Hope this sweet treat brightens your day!!!
My husband and I recently went blackberry and blueberry picking. We have found that it is much cheaper, and more fun, to go to the field and pick berries than to buy them at the store. When we finished picking this year, we had 12 lbs. of blueberries and 6 lbs. of blackberries!
The first thing we did when we got home was lay the berries out on towels and sort through them for leaves or anything extra in our buckets. We kept some berries out for baking and eating. Then, we put the remaining berries in quart size freezer bags and put them in the freezer. We will be having delicious berry treats for a while!
I made an easy cobbler with some of the blackberries. It was so good that we ate the whole cobbler in one night! At my family’s request, I made the same cobbler the very next night. I’ll share the recipe that was passed down from my mom.
1 cup sugar
1 cup self-rising flour
1 cup of milk
3 cups of blackberries, lightly tossed in sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8×8 casserole dish. Combine sugar, flour, and milk in a bowl and pour into the bottom of the casserole dish. Then, pour the blackberries in the middle of the dish on top of the batter. Bake the cobbler for approximately 55 minutes or until it is cooked to your liking.
You can substitute many fruits to this recipe.
We like our cobbler hot with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. I hope you enjoy this easy, cheap, and tasty cobbler recipe.
