This is the reason I haven't been baking as much...he occupies a lot of my time. It is completely well worth it too. :) :) :)
Hello everyone! I am still alive I promise. I have been doing a lot of wedding stuff, including moving into a new empty apartment. The good news is: I now get to bake more! I am slowly trying to get my fiance to enjoy sweets more, but I think I have a long road ahead of me. It's ok...I'm up for the challenge.
This recipe came from my mom. When I was younger she used to make this cobbler with fresh blackberries in the summer and it was so wonderful (especially with vanilla ice cream). I used frozen berries because I am broke and it's all I have. I also tweaked the recipe too because my cobbler was a little more dry than I like it. My mom warned me to take out the majority of the juice from the frozen berries because it can make the cobbler soggy. I think I might have taken out too much. To fix the problem I added a few spoonfuls of Reduced Sugar Raspberry Preserves and it brought life to this cobbler. :)
This is what it looked like in the end. Not the prettiest cobbler, but it is really really really good.
1 bag frozen berries, thawed and heated in the microwave
1/2 cup butter, melted (I only had that spreadable non-margarine stuff, and it worked fine)
1 cup sugar
1 cup milk
1 cup self-rising flour (I usually HATE self-rising, but it worked well in this recipe I must admit).
1 tsp. vanilla (Mexican vanilla preferred)
1/2 tsp. butter extract
1 tsp. cinnamon
Mix the flour and sugar together in a mixing bowl. SLOWLY add the milk. Mix in the melted butter slowly as well. Mix in the extracts and cinnamon. Pour into a baking dish (you can use a cobbler dish, a pie dish, or a 13x9 pan which I used). Spoon the fruit evenly on top. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-45 min.
