I was invited to a BBQ a couple of weeks ago and decided to bring a dessert. Unfortunately I only had a short time to pull something together, so some of my normal desserts were out due to lack of time or missing ingredients. I did have a bag of frozen berries sitting in my freezer, however, and so I hopped on the Internet and found a fairly simple berry cobbler recipe. The original recipe can be found on Cooks.com; however I made a few adjustments.
3 c. mixed berries, frozen or fresh
1 c. all-purpose (whole wheat) flour
1 c. sugar
1 egg, beaten
5 tbsp. butter or margarine, melted
Pour berries into 8 x 8 x 2 inch pan. If you wish for a sweeter cobbler, sprinkle with a small amount of sugar and mix. Don’t put too much as the fruit will be sweet already. My berries were frozen, so I put the pan in the oven while the oven warmed up.
Stir flour, sugar and egg mixture; it will resemble coarse meal. Sprinkle in chunks over berries. Drizzle melted butter over top of cobbler. Bake at 375 degrees for 30 -40 minutes until the topping becomes golden and the berry mixture bubbles.
This tastes best when hot, and goes well with ice cream.
