Recipe : Mulberry Cobbler
A recipe given to me by a friend. Very simple and easy to make, with no eggs. So pure vegetarian. Plus a lot of the sweetness comes form the fruit that you use and you can decide to cut down on the sugar if you prefer.
1 cup flour
1 cup sugar
1 cup milk
till smooth and no lumps.
(the recipe did not call for it, but I added a pinch of baking powder and a bit of vanilla essence)
Melt a bit of butter (about half a stick) to coat the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking pan and then some.
Pour the flour batter over the butter. Pour fruit over the flour mixture. Do not stir.
Bake at 350 for about an hour.
Any fruit with its juice can be used for eg:
a can of peaches
blackberries, blueberries or nectarines.
Any bakeable fruit - fresh or tinned.
If you are using fresh fruit, depending on the sweetness of the fruit, you may want to toss it in some powdered sugar.
I used mulberries that were a bit tart, so I did sprinkle powdered sugar over the fruit before adding them to the flour mixture.
I apologise that the pictures haven't come out too well. husband has taken the cameras on his trip and I had to take these with the camera phone which doesn't have the best resolution or flash.
Serve hot cobbler with a scoop of vanilla ice cream (so as not to overpower the flavour of the fruit)
