Cooking in Quarantine-It’s Cobblering Time!

The berries are abundant. We have no yeast. It’s time for a quick, use any fruit, simple ingredient cobbler recipe! My husband bought me Genius Desserts a couple years ago, and I cracked it open last week for some inspiration. Inside was the life-changing Meme’s Blackberry Batter Cobbler. It is so easy and so versatile! You literally can use any fruit you have on hand. I made it with a blackberry-blueberry combo last week, but this time I could not resist the strawberries and rhubarb at the store…mmmm…tastes like summer!

INGREDIENTS

  • 1/2 c unsalted butter (1 stick)

  • 1 cup sugar, plus more for berries
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 cup heavy cream (use whole milk if you don’t have cream)
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Place berries in a large bowl. Sprinkle some sugar over top to get the juices running. You may want to mash them slightly with your spatula if they are very firm.
  • Melt butter in a large cast iron skillet or ovenproof baking dish in the oven.
  • In another large bowl, whisk together sugar, flour, baking powder, and salt. Add heavy cream/milk and vanilla extract; mix until well combined.

  • Remove baking dish with melted butter from oven. Pour melted butter into flour mixture, and stir.
  • Pour batter into baking dish and mound berries into center of batter- do not mix in or spread out.
  • Transfer dish to oven and bake until top is golden brown and a cake tester inserted into the batter comes out clean, about 50 minutes.

Stay Safe and Cook On!
