Blackberry Cobbler Ii

Posted on

This morning, shortly after sunrise and while the dew was still on everything it could be on, my husband had an “appointment” with his brother… to go wild blackberry picking.  Yep, at 6 A.M.– sharp!!   This morning’s temperature in the low 50’s felt better than the 80°  we have now that things have heated up a bit.

What to do with the berries?   Well, a couple of things for the “first berries” of this season–  eat some fresh, put some in a bowl with milk/sugar, and… make a cobbler.  Fresh out of the oven, eat it as shown above, or,… add ice cream like this:

Serves 4
(This recipe is just a weeeeeeeee bit different than the other blackberry cobbler recipe I’ve posted on this blog.)

INGREDIENTS:

1 cup white sugar
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 and 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, melted
1 cup whole milk

2 cups fresh or frozen blackberries.  I used “fresh”.

2 tablespoons more of white sugar (for sprinkling on top of batter before baking).  When sprinkling the sugar on top, try to stay away from the edges of the dish so that it will not “crystallize” around the hot sides of the glass baking dish.

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat panggangan to 350-degrees.  Spray a 3-quart baking dish with non-stick spray, or grease it with butter.  (You can double this recipe and bake it in a 9×13″ glass baking dish for 60-65 minutes.)

In a medium bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients (sugar, flour, baking power and salt).
Add the milk and melted butter to the combined dry ingredients; stir only until well blended.
Pour the batter into the baking dish.
Rinse the blackberries and pat them dry.  Sprinkle the berries evenly on top of the batter.  Sprinkle the extra 2 tablespoons of sugar evenly over the berries.
Bake until light brown and bubbling. For my oven, this was 50 minutes.   (You could sprinkle another tablespoon or so of sugar on top for about the last ten minutes of baking, as shown in the photo below–  BUT!, I do NOT think that’s necessary!)

 

Eat plain, or top with whatever
kind of “good stuff” you like!!!!

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
