FRESH FROM THE GARDEN -
FRESH FROM THE SPINNING WHEEL -
FRESH FROM THE OVEN!!!
My sister and brother-in-law have raised blueberries in Lewis County Washington for almost 50 years, since they took over his dad's farm. His dad had been there for many years before that, and the berry plants were well established.
She is often asked to bring a blueberry dessert to events and came up with this easy to make cobbler recipe. I must confess that I had never made it before, but we have had a bumper crop of berries from our 6 plants this year and The Shepherd has managed to pick them before the robins have for once. So I finally had enough berries to make this yummy cobbler.
So I give you: Wisten's Blueberry Cobbler
Oven at 375-400 degrees - use a 9 x 13 inch cake pan.
1 1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup flour
A "dash" of cinnamon and
a "trace" of salt
Pour over and toss with:
8-12 cups of fresh (or frozen) blueberries that have been mixed with
3 Tablespoons of lemon juice and
1/4 cup of melted butter
Pour your berry mixture into the 9 x 13 baking dish and put in the oven and bring to "bubbly" - about 20 minutes or so until the mixture is juicy and the berries have begun to burst.
Take your pan out of the oven and add the cobbler topping mix below:
For the topping mix:
2 cups flour
4 teaspoons baking power
2 Tablespoons of sugar
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/2 cup melted butter (don't have it so hot that it "cooks" the egg mixture)
1 egg beaten in 2/3 cup milk.
DON'T ADD THE LIQUID INGREDIENTS TO DRY INGREDIENTS OF THE TOPPING UNTIL RIGHT BEFORE YOU ARE READY TO PUT IT OVER THE BERRIES.
Drop in tablespoon-fulls over the berry mixture and bake another 20 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with ice cream.
I am going to try out this cobbler recipe with peaches and maybe some tart cherries - don't you think that would be good? Or maybe peaches AND blueberries together. Ah, the possibilities are endless - Thanks, Wisten for your yummy recipe!
For more blueberry recipes got to my blueberry blog Something Borrowed, Something Blueberry - (yes, I know it's been a while since I put some new recipes on it - guess I should look for some new ones - there's only so many hours in a day, however)
Enjoy my little video of this cobbler HOT from the oven. Wish you had "smell-a-puter?"
