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!

Boston Cream Pie Parfaits (for two)

Now that the weather is so warm and I had success with the Dulce De Leche banana pudding, I have become completely obsessed with icebox cakes/desserts. The concept is basically a cookie, layered with some kind of pudding and/or cream, and when left in the refrigerator; the cookies will soften into a sumptous cake-like texture. One of the most notable icebox cakes being the “Famous Chocolate Icebox Cake”, made from Nabisco’s Famous Chocolate Wafers.

This morning, I had a terribly unsatisfying Boston Cream Pie flavored fat-free Yoplait yogurt. I decided for dessert, I’d make a tastier version.

Make some vanilla instant pudding (3.4 oz box) with two cups of skim milk.

Lighten the pudding by adding half a tub of fat-free whipped topping:

I know this sounds retarded, but get a big shot glass and fill it with skim milk.

Dunk three vanilla wafers in and place them at the bottom of the glass. They’ll be nice and evenly coated with milk…wayyy better than trying to spoon milk over the wafers.

I always keep some chocolate ganache in the fridge (don’t ask me why), but if you don’t have any, just melt some chocolate or you can use chocolate syrup!

Drizzle some over the wafers:

Top that with some of the pudding mixture:

Repeat…milk-dipped wafers, ganache drizzle, pudding….end with milk-dipped wafers and another drizzle:

By the time you’re done just making two, you will have used only half of the pudding mixture. I’m sure I’ll come up with another icebox dessert later this week!!

Cover and refrigerate for at least two hours:

Double yummm…

This dessert was AWESOMELY delicious! I will definitely be making this one again and again! I want one right now!!

Dulce De Leche Banana Pudding (for two)

I am a firm believer in the idea that there is always room for dessert. I get it from my mom who, no matter how full she is, can always have some sweets after dinner.

I had a craving for banana pudding…the kind you’d find at barbecue joints like Rudy’s. Layers of vanilla pudding, softened Nilla wafers, and whipped cream…Yummm.

Suddenly, I had a bright idea. I always keep Jell-O Dulce de Leche pudding in the fridge.  The awesome thing about this recipe is that you can make as many as you want…just one or six…It’s a make-ahead and it’s healthy!

Here’s my quickie dessert fix:

All the ingredients. Reduced fat vanilla wafers, skim milk, a banana, and two Jell-O sugar-free dulce de leche pudding cups…yes, I buy store brands! haha

Place 3 vanilla wafers in the bottom of the glass. Spoon on a tablespoon or so of milk to moisten the wafers.

Scoop out half of the pudding cup and place it on top of the wafers.

A layer of banana:

Another layer of wafers and milk, then the second half of the pudding cup. Top with more banana, wafers and milk.

Top with fat-free whipped toppping:

Cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours.

Enjoy!!

I hated this dessert. 😛
