I was so going to post this Tuesday. I forgot. And then, I was going to post it yesterday morning. Forgot again. Whoopsies. It’s way too late now (obvi), but here is a fun, easy, festive & super delicious 4th of July dessert… Cherry Blueberry Cobbler. I like it because it’s a little different than the usual layered puddings and red, white & blue cupcakes that you see around Independence Day. I found this recipe on The Pioneer Woman in 2010. I ended up not making it until 2011. I am writing about it 2012. Maybe you can make it in 2013?? It will be the cobbler recipe that transcends internet time.
Here’s what you need: (Adapted from The Pioneer Woman’s Blackberry Cobbler #1)
- 1 stick butter – melted
- 1 1/4 cup sugar… divided into 1 cup & 1/4 cup
- 1 cup self rising flour
- 1/2 cup blueberries
- 1/2 cup cherries – diced
Preheat your oven to 350. Rub some butter in your baking dish… you can really use anything to bake this bad boy.
Put the flour & 1 cup of the sugar into a medium mixing bowl. Whisk in the milk, mixing well.
Whisk in the butter. Again, mix well.
Pour batter into the buttered baking dish. (Pour batter buttered baking dish… say that 5 times fast. You totally stopped reading and tried it, didn’t you?!)
Sprinkle fruit evenly over batter.
Sprinkle the remaining 1/4 cup of sugar over the top.
Bake for 1 hour. If desired, take it out at 50 minutes and sprinkle with another tablespoon of sugar… then (obviously) replace and bake for the final 10 minutes. I would hope that you desire to do this.
I like this recipe because you can easily adapt it to fit whatever your fruit preferences are, or whatever holiday you are celebrating for that matter. I also like it because it is scrumptious.
HAPPY 4TH OF JOOO-LY! Or 5th of July. Whatever. (Really, though, I hope you had a fantastic 4th!)
