Blackberry Cobbler

Posted on
M-m-m-m, good!
This morning, Wayne’s brother, Jim, called and said he had something for us– fresh blackberries, and fresh fish.  Who could resist that kind of invite to go over!?!?!?   This is what I did with some of the blackberries…

 

*INGREDIENTS*:

  • 1/2 stick butter, melted, plus a bit more butter for greasing pan/dish.
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar (plus another separate 1/4 cup sugar for top,  and still another 1 tablespoon sugar for sprinkling on top just before removing from the oven).
  • 1 cup self-rising flour
  • 1 cup whole milk (or low-fat milk with added whipping cream to equal a cup).
  • 2 cups fresh (or frozen) blackberries.
  • Ice cream or whipped cream for serving.

*DIRECTIONS*:

  1. Preheat the panggangan to 350-degrees F.
  2. Grease a 3-quart baking dish with butter.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together 3/4 cup sugar with the flour and milk.
  4. Whisk in the melted butter.
  5. Rinse the ‘fresh’ blackberries and pat them dry (if using frozen berries, let drain for a little while).
  6. Pour the batter into the buttered baking dish.
  7. Sprinkle the blackberries evenly over the top of the batter.
  8. Sprinkle the 1/4 cup amount of sugar on top and bake until golden brown and bubbly (about 1 hour).
  9. Remove from panggangan and sprinkle the extra 1 tablespoon sugar on top and return to panggangan for about 10 minutes.
  10. Let cool for about 30 minutes before serving with ice cream or whipped cream.

*The last time I made this, to make more servings, I doubled everything and baked it in a buttered 9×13″ baking dish. Baking time was about 65 minutes before I removed and sprinkled the last bit of sugar on top for the next/last 10 minutes.

THANK YOU, JIM, FOR THE BLACKBERRIES!

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.
