When B and I get bored sometimes, we like to peruse through all the shows on Food Network. We came upon Cajun Aces and immediately wanted to try to recreate all of their recipes. I tried this one because it was a way of making a cobbler that I had never seen before – and was way easier than the cobblers I’d made before.
WHAT YOU NEED
1 stick melted unsalted butter (plus extra to grease the skillet)
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 cups sugar
1 cup milk
12 oz fresh blackberries
1 cup boiling water
WHAT YOU DO
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease a 10-inch cast iron skillet.
Whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, 1 cup sugar, melted butter and milk in a large bowl. Beat well, then pour the batter into the buttered skillet. Top with blackberries and sprinkle the remaining cup of sugar, and then pour the boiling water over the top.
Bake until the filling is bubbling and the cobbler topping is golden, about 35-40 minutes. Pour sassy sauce over the top before serving.
(Sassy sauce – 1 14oz can sweetened condensed milk, 1 cup heavy cream, splash of rum. To make – whisk together the condensed milk and heavy cream in a saucepan over low heat until combined and warm. Spike with rum – pour over cobbler)
This was seriously the easiest cobbler I’ve ever made – and I’m sure you could add whatever fruit you wanted. I’m going to try it with peaches next, because I can always eat peaches.
