A Tale of Blueberry Cobbler

My husband is amazing.

No, really.  He is.

He’s so amazing for many reasons, but mainly right now because he went to the grocery store at 8 at night to get vanilla ice cream.

All because I made blueberry cobbler.  And let’s be honest — the ice cream makes the cobbler a thousand times better!

Make this.  And make sure you have vanilla ice cream before you start!

Blueberry Cobbler

What you need:

1/2 cup butter, melted

1 cup self-rising flour

1 cup sugar

1 cup milk

2-3 cups fresh or frozen blueberries (or peaches or blackberries)

How to do it:

Sprinkle a little sugar over the berries.  Let sit for 10 minutes.  Stir gently to incorporate the sugar.  Mix together the flour and sugar.  Add in the milk and butter then add in the berries and pour into a greased baking dish.  Bake at 350* for about 50 minutes or until a crust forms on the top and a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.

P.s. Don’t have self-rising flour handy?  Don’t worry!  Just use 1 cup of all-purpose flour and 1 tsp baking powder!

P.s.s. On a side note, my least favorite thing in a recipe is “cook until done”.  Seriously?  How long is done?!  How am I supposed to set a timer?!  This happened on this recipe from my grandmother’s collection, and I re-set the timer every 5 minutes for 45 minutes.  You are welcome for the effort I put into sharing this truly fabulous cobbler with you!
