BLACKBERRY & ORANGE COBBLER



I have never tasted blackberries before,so when I saw a boxes of them in the supermarket, I thought of picking up one. And oranges, I absolutely love them! Especially the Californian Cuties, they are tiny yet so juicy and nice! They taste exactly like the oranges we get in India. So I have another reason to like them more. 

I love fruits in my desserts...especially fresh fruits!And while I was wondering what I should do with that box of blackberries sitting in a corner of my fridge, this cobbler idea popped up in my mind! So within 10 minutes flat I had them put into the oven for baking!

So when Jobin returned home from work, he saw them sitting pretty on our kitchen counter and attacked one! I must admit that I just couldn't wait for him to get home, they smelt so good while baking, so I had my share as soon as it came out of the oven!

BLACKBERRY & ORANGE COBBLER
Recipe source: Ree Drummond

Ingredients:
Self raising flour-1 cup
Unsalted Butter- 1 stick/113 g
Milk-1 cup
Sugar-1 1/4 cups
Fruits- 2 cups- Oranges & Blackberries
Method:

  • Melt butter in a microwavable dish. Pour 1 cup of sugar and flour into a mixing bowl, whisking in milk. Mix well. Then, pour in melted butter and whisk it all well together. Butter a baking dish.
  • Now rinse and pat dry the blackberries and segment the oranges. Pour the batter into the buttered baking dish. Sprinkle blackberries /oranges over the top of the batter; distributing evenly. Sprinkle ¼ cup sugar over the top.
  • Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 1 hour, or until golden and bubbly. If you desire, sprinkle an additional teaspoon of sugar over the cobbler 10 minutes before it’s done.
 Verdict: It was mighty delicious! I just loved the crust which forms on top. It is a very simple recipe and you can make it anytime with any fruits of your choice! Now I am waiting to try these with stone fruits like plums & peaches! Sluurrppp!!

Those look so pretty, after never seeing blackberries in the UK apart from roadside bushes, our supermarkets have had loads of them lately but I didn't have a clue what to do with them, pairing them with orange sounds wonderful.
