Blackberry Cobbler

Mmmm. Desserts. I love desserts. And I love cobbler. Peach cobbler is my favorite, but my hubby happens to favor blackberry cobbler. So since I love desserts, cobbler and my husband, I decided to go ahead and make some blackberry cobbler. Courtesy of The Pioneer Woman.

I have never made a cobbler before, so I was a bit nervous. But this recipe was super easy, so I decided to give it a go. And I documented it, step by step, for you all to see.

Your welcome. :)

The ingredients consist of milk, sugar, self rising flour, butter and blackberries (fresh or frozen).

First, place half a cup (1 stick) of butter in a microwave safe dish. Nuke it for 30-45 seconds, or until melted.

Whisk together 1 cup of sugar, 1 cup of self rising flour and 1 cup of milk. Mix well.

Then take your melted butter, poor it into the bowl and whisk together.

Now, butter a 3 quart baking dish.

My 3 quart baking dish was being used to hold leftover baked lemon pasta (another PW recipe), so I had to settle for my 2.5 quart dish. It worked fine, but my cobbler would have turned out a little better if I had used a 3 quart. Just so ya know. :)

Now rinse and pat dry two cups of blackberries. Fresh would be fabulous, but all I had was frozen. So that's what I used. And they tasted fabulous. Just so ya know.

Poor the batter into your baking dish and drop the blackberries evenly over the top of the batter.

Once you have evenly distributed the berries, sprinkle 1/4 cup of sugar over the berries.

If you are trying to take pictures during this process, the sugar may not sprinkle evenly. So, if you can help it, try not to take pictures while baking. It causes sugar to pile up unnecessarily. Ahem.

Now, pop this baby into the oven (preheated to 350 degrees) and bake for 1 hour. Or until golden brown. I kind of didn't hear my timer go off, so mine was a little closer to brown instead of golden. Luckily it didn't burn, but it should definitely be pulled out before this point. Just so ya know.

Oh, and if you want, sprinkle two tablespoons of sugar on the cobber about 10 min. till its done. A little extra sugar never hurt anyone, right?

Wala! You now have a tasty blackberry cobbler ready to serve to your hungry friends or family. Or just keep it for yourself. I will not judge.

(Note: If I would have used the 3 quart dish the crust would have risen more evenly. Again, did not affect the taste, just the presentation. Which I was not to concerned about.)

And beware. Your husband may not wait for you to dish it onto a plate. It is very likely that he will just grab a spoon and dig in. Yes, it is that good.

Next time I am going to substitute peaches for blackberries! I cant wait!

Hope you enjoy!
