Black & Blue Cobbler

Black and Blue Cobbler

This is a very easy recipe and the children love to help....

*2 cups flour ( we have done half white half fresh ground wheat)
*2 tsp baking powder
*1 tsp salt
*2 cups sugar
*1/3 cup softened butter
*1 cup milk

*2-3 cups fresh berries
*2 cups boiling water

- preheat to 350 degrees and put some water on to boil ( i use a kettle)
- mix dry ingredients....set aside. 
- cream 1 cup of the sugar and butter. alternately add the flour mixture and the milk. you will have a nice doughy paste.
- smooth dough into the bottom of a 9x13 pan
- put berries on top of dough and sprinkle with the remaining cup of can use less sugar as this is sweet.
- pour your boiling water over the mixture (i know, i know...sounds crazy, but it works)
- cook in your oven uncovered for about 50 minutes until dough is cooked through. Some of the dough will have risen to the top. I put a ton berries, so not a lot of my dough rises. I normally put tin foil over the top AFTER it comes out of the oven to soften the berries up, they can get dry from baking.

Serve with vanilla ice have to have the ice cream.
