Blackberry Cobbler (for two)

May is the start of blackberry season and they were definitely on sale this past week at the grocery store. I somehow managed to get home with 3 pints of berries!

Here’s a recipe that just makes dessert for two…or for one very greedy person.

Start with two tablespoons of butter and melt it in the microwave (about 45 seconds). Don’t be like me and put melamine in the microwave. It gets HOT!!

Add 1/3 cup of sugar

1/3 cup of flour

1/3 cup of milk

Whisk until smooth (a few lumps are okay!). Spray two 8 0z ramekins with nonstick cooking spray. Pour batter evenly into ramekins. Toss a handful of [washed] blackberries into each one. I put 7 in each.

Sprinkle 1 teaspoon of sugar on each one

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. (Maybe put the ramekins in a baking pan just in case they decide to bubble over)

Let them stand for about 10 minutes before serving

Feel free to serve with whipped cream or ice cream!

Bon appetite!

Blackberry Cobbler (for two)

2 tablespoon butter
1/3 cup of sugar + 2 teaspoons
1/3 cup of flour
1/3 cup of milk
Handful of blackberries

Melt two tablespoons of butter in the microwave for about 45 seconds. Add the sugar, flour and milk and whisk until smooth. Pour evenly into prepared (sprayed with nonstick cooking spray) ramekins. Drop the blackberries on top. Sprinkle one teaspoon of sugar on each ramekin. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving. Enjoy!

You may have noticed the proportion of ingredients…its 1 part flour, 1 part sugar, one part milk, and half part melted butter. You can easily multiply or divide this recipe!! You can also sub in other fruits and berries or even add spices to the filling and/or batter. Have fun!

    Exactly what I was looking for…quick, easy, just for two. i can freeze the blueberries and blackberries I picked today and take out a handful each time I want this dessert. Now…if we could figure out how to do it all in the microwave. Hmmmmm….save energy and not heat up the kitchen in July.

    This didn’t work for me at all! I tried it in my toaster oven and my regular oven. At 30 mins it was still almost completely raw, cooking it just a little longer, just leaves it a solid hard rock. What am I doing wrong!?

      I’m sorry it didn’t work! The proportion is:

      1/2 part melted butter
      1 part sugar (plus more for sprinkling on top)
      1 part flour
      1 part milk
      As much or as little fruit as you desire

      Maybe try self-rising flour instead? Or add a little baking powder to your cup of AP flour?

      Are you using ramekins? Maybe make sure that whatever you are using to bake them in is not too deep and is conducting heat well.

      Is altitude an issue? If so, the temperature might need to be adjusted!

    I fixed . . . had a hard time getting the top crusty. Cooked an extra 15 minutes and the top was mushy and the bottom crunchy. Will put on the top shelf next time . . . . it tasted good.
