The first food blog that I ever started reading on a regular basis was The Pioneer Woman. I love her style when it comes to explaining recipes (and I'm pretty jealous of her ranch). I don't just admire her food - I actually make it. This is kind of a big deal because so often I bookmark beautiful recipes from other bloggers and I just never get around to making them all. Not so with Pioneer Woman. I've made so many of her recipes so often that it's easy to forget they're not my own. My chocolate cake is hers, my lasagna is hers, my lemon pasta is hers. The list goes on. The biggest thing I've
stolen learned from her is her Blackberry Cobbler #1 (she has two versions). This is my go-to dessert without question. I can whip up one or two of these in no time, any time. It's my mom's favorite, my husband's favorite, and even my sister really likes it. You don't understand the odds of all three of them liking the same dessert.
My only change to Ree's recipe is that I use blueberries, but it's perfect with any kind of berry or even mixed berries. I also prefer to serve it with a little scoop of vanilla ice cream. The recipe is so simple to memorize and make, and it's perfect for those who think that they aren't good at baking. I can see this dessert being right at home at any summer barbecue, or you can make it year-round with frozen berries (which are just as good).
Make it this weekend, it's easy!
1 stick of butter
1¼ cups of sugar
1 cup of self-rising flour
1 cup of milk
1 to 2 cups of your preferred berries, fresh or frozen
Melt the butter in a microwavable dish*. Pour the flour and 1 cup of the sugar into a mixing bowl, whisking in the milk. Mix well. Then, pour in the melted butter and whisk it all together.
Butter a baking dish (a standard pie or cake pan works perfectly, or even a disposable one).
