Aaah..berry season is here! Summers bring beautiful and yummilicious berries to the grocery stores and local farmer’s markets. Very pretty looking strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries and more. Though our favorite part of consuming berries is just to eat them straight or in smoothies but this cobbler is pretty much on top of the list for berry dishes. This cobbler is very versatile – switch up blueberries for your favorite berries – blackberries or raspberries. Strawberries have a little bit different texture profile so I won’t use the exact same recipe for strawberry cobbler, but feel free to switch up with other berries of your liking.
This is the simplest dessert recipe to remember. I call it the 1-1-1-1 recipe and you will see why..:P. And the recipe is egg-less also…woo hoo.
Serve up the cobbler warm with some vanilla bean ice cream and get ready for being transported to a world of luscious sweet fruity goodness.
So here’s how it goes:
Time to prepare the ingredients – 15 minutes
Total time to cook – 1 hour
Self Rising flour – 1 cup (See note if you don’t have self-rising flour)
Milk – 1 cup
Unsalted butter – 1 stick (1/2 cup) + more for greasing the baking dish
Sugar – 1 cup
Blueberries – to your liking (about 1.5 cups)
Turbinado or any coarse sugar – for sprinkling on top
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F/ 180 degrees C. Rinse the berries and set aside. Grease your baking dish with butter and set aside. I feel the 8 inch square glass dish works perfect for this recipe. Melt 1 stick of butter in the microwave. Now, be careful while you do this – sometimes the butter “bursts” in the microwave and the clean up is not pretty. I would suggest start with 30 seconds and then go on in 10 second increments till the butter is melted.
In a deep mixing bowl add 1 cup self rising flour, 1 cup sugar, 1 cup milk, and 1 stick of melted butter – you see 1-1-1-1…told ya. Whisk till completely mixed and smooth. Pour the mixed cobbler batter into your greased baking dish and sprinkle with blueberries – as many as you like. Sprinkle the coarse sugar on top and place it in the preheated oven. Bake for 50-55 minutes till golden brown.
Serve with a dollop of fresh whipped cream or ice-cream or just as-is…Yummmm!!
Note – If you don’t have self-rising flour, substitute it with 1 cup all-purpose flour mixed with 1 and a 1/2 teaspoon baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt.
Let me know how you like it.
