Blackberry Cobbler for Two
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 recipes 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 me happier. 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)
- 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
- Pint of Blackberries you will have some leftover
- Place blackberries into an oven-safe dish. Mix all other ingredients and pour over the blackberries. Bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes or until golden brown. Oven times may vary. Serves 2
Once you have your cobbler mixture, sprinkle some blackberries at the bottom of your baking dish. You can use as many as you want as long as there is room for the cobbler mixture.
Then, pour your cobbler mixture over the beautiful berries and bake. It is such a beautiful thing!
To me, a cobbler isn’t complete without a scoop of vanilla ice cream. I love how the flavors complement 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.
