If there’s something better than warm cobbler with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, I don’t know what it is. After discovering this recipe, I pretty much made it every weekend. It’s that good. AND it’s that easy.
Now please don’t form any assumptions due to the organic ingredients. It’s just what I had at the time and I thought it would be good to see how it turned out. That canister is whole wheat flour, by the way. Normally, I’m all for refined and full fat when it comes to ingredients. Anyways…
The recipe calls for a cup of self-rising flour. If you don’t have self-rising flour, have no fear. You can make your own by adding baking powder and salt. 1.5 tsp and .25 tsp respectively, per cup of flour.
Now that you have your cup of flour, add a cup of sugar, a cup of milk and the stick of butter (melted). Mix it together and pour it into a greased baking dish. Drop your fruit over the top. Berries work really well, cherries, strawberries. I used peaches this time.
As you bake this, the fruit will settle and the batter will bubble up, so don’t worry if it’s all just sitting on top when you put it into the oven. I sprinkled some brown sugar over the top because…well…I like sugar. And brown sugar on peaches just sounds so good.
The recipe says 350 degrees for one hour. That’s with blackberries. I discovered with the peaches that after an hour the middle of my cobbler was still not set, so I covered it with foil (not tightly, just like an umbrella) and put it back in for another 10 minutes. I kept that up for another 30 minutes or so, then took it out and let it sit.
And here is where I would insert the picture I took of my finished cobbler. IF I HAD REMEMBERED TO TAKE ONE! 😫 Since it took 40 minutes longer than I had planned, I was a bit rushed as we were heading over to have dinner with some friends. But I will report that it was lovely. I’m sure I’ll make it again soon and will update this post with the photo.
The recipe came from The Pioneer Woman, who is one of my heroes. She is not afraid of butter or pasta or rich creamy sauces. Oh man…I’m getting hungry. Check out her recipes at thepioneerwoman.com. She also has some wonderful cookbooks which you can find here, here and here.
Happy baking!!! 😃
