I started following the Pioneer Woman blog recently and immediately ordered her cookbook "The Pioneer Woman Cooks" which has American style recipes. The food pictures all look great so I decided to start with dessert since that always tastes good no matter what!
115g unsalted butter
1 & 1/4 cups + 2 tablespoons caster sugar
1 cup self-raising flour
1 cup milk
2 cups blueberries (fresh or frozen & any type of berry can be used)
Preheat oven to 180 degrees (I suggest 160 degrees if you use a fan forced oven) and grease a 3 litre baking dish with butter. (2-2.5 litre would be sufficient)
Melt the butter in the microwave. In a separate bowl, whisk the flour, 1 cup of sugar and milk together until combined. Whisk in the melted butter.
Pour the batter into the baking dish and sprinkle the blueberries evenly over the top of the batter. Sprinkle 1/4 cup of sugar evenly over the top of the blueberries. Bake for 1 hour or until golden brown and bubbly. 10 minutes before you are due to pull the cobbler out of the oven, sprinkle an additional 2 tablespoons over sugar over the top if you wish.
Results: This tastes as good as it looks in the cookbook!!!! So crispy and sweet and then moist inside with the cake and fruit. You have to eat this topped with lashings of cream or vanilla ice cream, it's an order!! So good and so quick to make, just remember to factor in the baking time.
