The cobbler we eat at least once a week

You guys might think I'm exaggerating, as I am (admittedly) prone to do. This time, however, I do not exaggerate. Most weeks, we buy whatever berries are on sale (or ripening on our various and sundry berry-bushes), and then whip up some cobbler. And by that, I mean Adam whips up cobbler and I eat it. I am literally powerless to resist the lure of the cobbler. It's that good.
Without fail, whenever I post a picture or remark regarding said cobbler, someone begs for the recipe. So today, you are in luck. The original recipe we use comes from Pioneer Woman (side note and little known fact about my husband - his official nick-name around here is the Pioneer Woman. Which he obviously loves.)

Ingredients

  • 1 stick Butter
  • 1-1/4 cup Sugar
  • 1 cup Self-Rising Flour
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 2 cups Blackberries (frozen Or Fresh)

Preparation Instructions

Melt butter in a microwavable dish. Pour 1 cup of sugar and flour into a mixing bowl, whisking in milk. Mix well. Then, pour in melted butter and whisk it all well together. Butter a baking dish.
Now rinse and pat dry the blackberries. Pour the batter into the buttered baking dish. Sprinkle blackberries over the top of the batter; distributing evenly. Sprinkle ¼ cup sugar over the top.
Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 1 hour, or until golden and bubbly. If you desire, sprinkle an additional teaspoon of sugar over the cobbler 10 minutes before it’s done.

Bonus side note: Occasionally, we are extremely desperate for the cobbler, and have berries on-hand but no self-rising flour. Gasp. It turns out Adam knows how to make his own. Which, if you ask me, seems like critical knowledge. You never know when you'll need self-rising flour. Or cobbler.

For your future reference (thanks to Adam!) here's the (extremely easy) way to make your own self-rising flour:
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt 
Stir or sift together the flour, salt, and baking powder. Presto, you've got self-rising flour!

I had to share Pioneer Woman's beautiful picture of the finished product since I never have time to take my own. In fact, by the time I get my iphone out to snap a picture, it looks something like this. And let's not pretend Adam and I cant eat the whole thing in a single sitting just the two of us.
