I am an empty nester. I am not crazy about it either. One of the hardest things about it for me is learning to cook for two. My kids always had friends over so it seemed I was cooking for a small army. Don’t get me wrong, I totally enjoyed cooking for them but, now that it is just me and hubby, we don’t want to look at a huge dessert and feel like it is going to be wasted or better yet on my waist. So I made this blackberry cobbler for two recipe so we don’t want to end up eating the entire thing.
You can make this recipe in Ramekins or in a small cast iron skillet. I like it in the Ramekins better because I can serve it in the bowl it was baked in. Fewer dishes to wash makes a happier me. Another great thing about this recipe is you can use different fruit such as peach, blueberry, or cherry.
Ingredients for Blackberry Cobbler for Two:
1/2 stick or 2 oz of butter, melted
1/2 cup of self-rising flour
1/2 cup of sugar
1/4 cup of milk
a Pint of Blackberries (you will have some leftover)
To me cobbler isn’t complete without a scoop of vanilla ice cream. I love how the flavors compliment each other. I make cobbler all year long and it is a dessert we enjoy in the fall but, making it with fresh berries makes it even better. If you have a small army to feed, here is my cobbler recipe that will feed your kiddos and their friends.
