He was my last blueberry of the season. I named him Bob. I baked him into a cobbler. If you have any fruits ready to be transformed into a delicious dessert, here’s an easy recipe shared by a friend this summer.
Mrs. Treece’s Cobbler
1 C all-purpose flour
3/4 C sugar
3/4 C milk
2 t baking powder
1 t salt
1 egg, lightly beaten
4 T butter
about 2 C, or as much as you like, of the fruit of your choice, cleaned/ chopped/prepared for baking, and warmed
Melt butter in the bottom of a 9×12 inch Pyrex baking dish. Mix all other ingredients and add them to the baking dish, incorporating with the butter. Top with warm fruit, and bake in a 325 degree oven until the batter is golden brown – it rises to the top as it bakes, covering the fruit or berries.
I made a batch of my favorite British treat, Bird’s Custard, and enjoyed it very much over a heated slice of the blueberry cobbler. Cobblers are so easy and tasty and fresh for summer eating.
Our temperatures are going to be above 90 all weekend – maybe I need a recipe for fresh blueberry ice cream, too! Any suggestions?
