Berry Cobbler

Sunday is a day that calls for dessert, am I right?

I'm a huge fan of fruit-based desserts. Last weekend I had some fresh blackberries I needed to use so I decided to do a cobbler after rooting around in the freezer and unearthing some frozen strawberries. This was so easy.

4 tbs butter (cut up into tbs increments)
3/4 cup flour
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp brown sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
3/4 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
3 cups berries - any kind, fresh or frozen. I used a mix and didn't thaw the frozen ones
1 TBS sugar
a bit of brown sugar crumbled between fingers

Heat oven to 350. Put the pieces of butter in the bottom of the dish you're using (I used a  dish) and let melt in the oven with the rack in the middle.

In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, and 1 teaspoon brown sugar. Add milk and vanilla and whisk until smooth. When butter is melted, remove dish from oven and pour batter in. Stir a bit.

Throw fruit on the top of the batter and sprinkle with 1 TBS sugar and then crumble a bit of brown sugar over top.

Bake until the batter gets brown and the fruit bubbles. It was about 47 minutes for me.

Serve warm (if you need to microwave individual plates, zap them at 20 seconds per) with ice cream or whipped cream if desired.
