Hubby's Favorite Blackberry Cobbler
Just like his Momma made!
Have you ever tried to make something for your hubby that was "just like his Momma's"?
It's rather difficult isn't it?
We have been married for almost 20 years and there are a few dishes that his Mom always made that I am still trying to replicate. Sadly, she is no longer here to answer my questions so I am left to trial and error...and let me say many a times it is an error.
(Tip #1. Beg and plead with your mother-in-laws to get their family favorite recipes before it's too late. Oh, and hope that they have a recipe. My MIL didn't use many recipes so it was rather hard to write down something that was in her head & wasn't actually measured out.)
Anyways, over the years I have made many "from scratch" recipes for cobblers and though hubby would say that they were good they still weren't just like his mommas.
That is until I tried using Bisquick in it.
Are you serious??
After all these years of mixing and sampling it all came down to a lousy box of Bisquick.
That was the missing ingredient.
So simple and easy.
Bisquick Blackberry Cobbler
2 tbsp. butter
1 cup Bisquick
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup milk
3 cups fruit
Melt butter in an 8X8 pan.
Mix Bisquick, sugar and milk in a bowl.
Pour over top of the melted butter.
*The melted butter kind of oozes up and around the batter*
Spoon fruit over top.
Bake 30 minutes for 375 degrees.
Serve warm with a little vanilla ice cream.
Sorry! I forgot to take a picture of the cobbler before they dug into it. The above photo was taken just before placing it in the oven. I always stock up on berries when they are on sale and then I freeze them. Thus the ice crystals on the berries.
