Dewberry cobbler


This is my favorite cobbler recipe so far. It's a prize-winner from Betty Crocker. It's convenient that a recipe so simple can produce a dessert so scrumptious. Of course, dewberries were used in place of blackberries.

Just cover berries with sugar


Mix the batter (dry ingredients, milk, melted butter)

Dump the batter then the berries in a dish and bake. You don't even need to grease the dish!

Indulge.


Dewberry Cobbler
from the Betty Crocker website

2 1/2 cups fresh dewberries
1 cup sugar
1 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup whole milk
1/2 cup (8 Tbsp) butter, melted

Preheat oven to 375F. Cover berries with sugar and let sit for 15-20 minutes, until some syrup forms. Stir together sugar, flour, baking powder, salt, and milk. Add butter and stir till fully mixed. Pour batter into 8x8" baking pan. Dump berries into batter. Bake for 45-55 minutes.

This stuff is great on its own but deadly when paired with vanilla bean ice cream. Ours will be ready in a few minutes!

That's right, a disposable plastic plate. We ate outside and you know how I feel about breakables in the backyard.

  2. I adore seeing things like how you feel about breakables outdoors. Absolutely heartwarming. And this is nearly a duplicate of the dewberry cobbler we used to make for Grandpa! He LOVED LOVED LOVED it! Especially with the ice cream.

  3. I'm trying this tonight. I used to have this recipe, being a native Texan, but couldn't find it. The thing that's missing is the size of the pan and cooking time and temp. Thanks!
