Well I promised we'd be seeing the blackberries from my last post again soon, and by chance I was messing around online when I came across this recipe at http://thepioneerwomancooks.com/. Full credit to this goes there, but I hope Ree doesn't mind if I put up the metric measurements for the recipe here.
Is this a blackberry cobbler? Well, er, not round these parts. But it's got blackberries in, and I supposed it doesn't look sort of... cobbled. So as long as you don't mind if you're not exactly sure what you're eating, try this. The smell of it baking alone is enough to knock you out for several hours ♥.
(If you're the sort of person who does mind a bit of uncertainty, you can probably get the same effect from a pair of old socks, but it's not quite as enjoyable. Then again, if you're that sort of person, you deserve it.
Preparation: 10 mins
Cooking: 50 mins (Ree said an hour, but mine needed less)
404 calories per serving (six)
200 + 50g caster sugar
125g self-raising flour
1. Place butter in a microwaveable dish and melt it. Put your 200g of sugar in a mixing bowl, dump in the flour and whisk in the milk. Mix it well then pour in the melted butter and whisk together. Now butter a baking dish.
2. Take your blackberries, rinse and pat dry. Pour the batter into your dish and start sprinkling the blackberries over the top of it, distributing them evening until they're all in there. Then sprinkle the other 50g of sugar over the top.
3. Pop the dish in the oven at 180C for 50mins-1hr, until it's all golden and bubbly and cor. I followed Ree's advice and sprinkled another teaspoon of sugar over it ten minutes before it was done.
Got to say, making this was a lot less traumatic than getting the actual blackberries X__X
