I have tried many recipes for Peach Cobblers, and this recipe is the final result. This one is a keeper! The recipe can be made with berries, or any fruit of your choice. If you use peaches (like I did) layer the peaches on bottom of the dish.
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup self-rising flour
1/2 cup whole milk
2 cups blackberries, fresh or frozen, thaw, and drain
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup cold water to cover
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
For the bottom layer, beat the ingredients together using a mixer. It will be like a thick cake batter. Spray the pan lightly with PAM then pour the batter into an 8 or 9 inch pan. Using a spatula spread the batter to the edges of the pan.
For the top layer, place the blackberries on top of the batter in a single layer, covering the batter with the blackberries. Sprinkle the sugar over the blackberries, then pour 1 cup cold water on top.
Place on cookie sheet (sometimes it bubbles over) and place on center rack in oven.
Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour; until the top is brown and the center doesn’t jiggle. Cool before serving.
Serve with vanilla ice cream and/or whipped topping.
This same recipe may be used with apples, apricots, or canned peaches. If these fruits are used, place them on the bottom of a greased pan, batter on top, then sugar and water over all.
