Our freezer went out yesterday and I found myself with a 5 lb. bag of quickly thawing blueberries. Nothing could be easier than this old standby recipe for a quick cobbler. For all of us who might have an unexpected guest for dinner, a friend to take a dinner to, or a freezer that doesn't hold up....keep this recipe handy. It won't disappoint.
1/2 stick butter
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup milk
16 oz. bag frozen fruit: peaches, blueberries, blackberries, etc.
extra sugar for sprinkling
Heat oven to 350 degrees.
Put butter in a baking dish, 8x8 is ideal, or rectangle pan will work too. Set in oven to melt. When butter has melted, take pan out of the oven.
Whisk flour, 3/4 cup of sugar, baking powder and salt in a big bowl. Add milk and whisk to form a smooth batter. Pour batter into pan, then sprinkle fruit over batter. Sprinkle with a little sugar on top, about a tablespoon.
Bake until batter browns and fruit is bubbling, 50 to 60 minutes, less if pan is bigger. Serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream!
