Berry Cobbler

Author/Submitted by:
Servings: 6
Categories: Cobblers / Desserts

1/2  C  Sugar (for sprinkling)
1/2  teaspoon  Salt
4  C  Berries (fresh or frozen)
1/2  C  Milk
1  C  Sugar (for the batter)
1/4  C  Butter (softened)
1  C  Flour, all-purpose
1 1/2  teaspoons  Baking powder

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Sprinkle about 1/2 cup of sugar on the berries and place them in the bottom of a 2-quart baking dish. Combine the remaining dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking powder and salt). Add the milk and softened butter and beat well. Spoon the batter over the berries. Sprinkle some nutmeg on top. Bake for about 45 minutes. NOTES: * Berry cobbler -- This recipe was lifted from _TV Guide's_ series of recipes from television stars. It is similar to the recipe for Berry Pudding found in Edna Staebler's "Food That Really Schmecks" cookbook. * You can use pretty well any type of berry for the base. A favourite of mine is a combination of strawberries, raspberries and blueberries. * The base of this turns out to be a bit thin and liquidy. If you strain the juice from the fruit, add a couple of tablespoons of flour to the juice, and then pour the juice over the fruit in the baking dish, the base will be semi-firm. * You do not need to sprinkle the full 1/2 cup of sugar on the berries; with sweeter berries, much less will often suffice. * If you would like a sweeter, candy-like batter, try adding more sugar to the batter. I wouldn't recommend putting more than about 1 1/4 cups of sugar into the batter, though, the crust of the batter will be very candy-like, but the centre of the batter will not properly bake if you do. : Difficulty: easy. : Time: 10 minutes preparation, 45 minutes baking. : Precision: approximate measurement OK. : Geoff Loker : University of Toronto, CSRI, Artificial Intelligence : USENET: {ihnp4 decwrl utzoo uw-beaver}!utcsri!utai!gkloker : CSNET: gkloker@toronto : ARPANET: gkloker.toronto@csnet-relay : Copyright (C) 1986 USENET Community Trust
