LAZY GIRL BERRY COBBLER

Recipe from FOM QUICK-FIX SOUTHERN

SERVES 6 TO 8

BAKING TIME: 50 MINUTES
Many southern grandmothers have a version of this simple cobbler in their recipe boxes.  It may just be the quickest way to an old-fashioned farm staple.  I first heard it referred to as Lazy Girl Cobbler in Nathalie Dupree’s kitchen.  Her kitchen is a Southern woman’s sanctuary.  It’s always warm, inviting, and never ceases to be a learning place for the hungry.

Ingredients:

½ cup unsalted butter
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1 cup Southern All-Purpose Flour (recipe on page 7)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups Buttermilk
1 cup packed light brown sugar 
4 cups fresh blackberries

Preheat the oven to 375 F.    
In a 10-inch cast-iron skillet, melt the butter in the oven while it is preheating.  Once the butter is melted, remove the skillet from the oven.

Meanwhile, whisk together the flour, brown sugar, baking power, and salt in a medium mixing bowl.  Whisk the buttermilk into the flour mixture.

Pour the batter over the melted butter in the hot skillet.  Sprinkle the blackberries evenly over the batter.

Bake for 50 minutes.  Server hot, warm, or at room temperature.
