This dish is so simple… its the cup-a, cup-a, cup-a and go type of recipe. A cup of flour, cup of sugar, and cup of milk, cup of berries (make that two), with a few more notes to make something that will have you walking away with a whole Pyrex dish of yumminess with NO desire to share AT ALL.
I’m so serious… A guest came to our home, and she had no love for “cooked fruit” as she made very clear to my siblings and I. I told her, “Just taste the crust!” Behold, she began with the sweet bread covered in the juice of fresh berry-licious-ness and ended up on the other corner of her dish, having completed an entire serving and craving more!
A new winner of the “Smith House” favorite potluck contributions list… and the occasional dinner dessert treat… Here you go!
- 2 cups Blackberries
(Best if fresh… a pack of Driscoll’s from the farmers market will work just fine)
- 1 stick Butter
- 1 cup Sugar
- 1 cup Self-Rising Flour
- 1 cup Milk
Use this recipe in the typical 9×18 square Pyrex dish, a Corning Ware dish, or cast-iron skillet. Cut it in half and use smaller dishes.
- Wash those blackberries. Let sit to dry a bit so little to no water is left on them.
- Use a pat of butter to butter your intended baking dish. Get your hands dirty on this one. Ensure that dish is smothered with that smidge of butter.
- Now to the good stuff…
- Melt your butter in a safe microwavable dish. Set it aside.
- Pour 1 cup of sugar and the flour into a mixing bowl.
- Stir in milk. Mix.
- Then, pour in melted butter and mix it all well together.
- Pour the batter into the buttered baking dish.
- Sprinkle blackberries over the top of the batter; distributing evenly.
- Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 1 hour, or until golden.
- Serve with a dollop of icecream!
