Blackberry Cobbler.

Have I ever mentioned my love of The Pioneer Woman?

I have?

A lot?


Well, let me say it one more time so that you don't forget...

I love the Pioneer Woman. With all of my little baking heart.

Not only do I love her because she's funny and she lives with cows and she likes to garden and she wears nice jewelry and she calls her children "punks", but I also love her because she loves to cook and bake.

I love to cook and bake.

We could be BFF.

I recently made a recipe from her cookbook and I need to share it with you. It's called Patsy's Blackberry Cobbler. You should totally try it out!

The ingredients:
1 stick of butter, melted; 1 1/4 C. plus 2 Tbsp. sugar; 1 C. self-rising flour; 1 C. milk; 2 C. fresh or frozen blackberries (or any other berry you have on hand). Preheat oven to350 degrees.

Now, I don't have self-rising flour. So, I just make my own. I use 1 C. of all-purpose flour...
1 1/4 tsp. baking powder...
and 1/8 tsp. of salt. Mix them together.
Then add only 1 C. of sugar.
When you add your milk, whisk it into the dry ingredients until blended.
Then, whisk in the melted butter. (This is soooo healthy, isn't it?)
Take your blackberries (or the berries of your choice), rinse them and then pat them dry.
Pour the batter into a well greased 3-quart baking dish.
Sprinkle the berries on top.
Mmm...isn't that pretty?
Take 1/4 C. of sugar and sprinkle on top of the dish.
Now it looks even better!
Bake for 1 hour in the oven.
You are supposed to take the dish out when there's only 10 minutes left and sprinkle 2 Tbsp. of sugar on it and then let it bake those last 1o minutes. I have forgotten to do this both times I've made it. So, I just sprinkle it after the full hour is up and...
put a lid on it. It's still super warm and the sugar still melts into the dessert. :)
I neglected to take a picture of it on a plate...mainly because we were scarfing it down like savages and taking pictures was not on my mind. But, this dish is sooooo good. We made it the first time with blueberries, and I think it is much better with blueberries. But, that's not to say the blackberries weren't good. Cause they were. And, it's so simple to make. I highly recommend it!!!

And, as always, I highly recommend you scooting on over to The Pioneer Woman's website and checking her out too.
