My husband, Jim and I were eating breakfast one weekend morning. I flipped the channel to the food network and Ree Drummond was on.
I enjoy watching her show, The Pioneer Woman, because she makes recipes that you usually have the ingredients in your pantry. Good food doesn’t have to be complicated, and it can be frustrating to see a recipe that looks good only to find out that you need some kind of weird, expensive ingredient.
That episode, her dessert was a Blackberry Cobbler that used 5 simple ingredients which I went on to pin. She has great pictures and instruction on her site. Even Jim said the cobbler looked good.
When I had the oven on one night I decided to make the cobbler. It called for self-rising flour which I didn’t have. I remembered reading how to make your own in one of my cookbooks. Measure 1 cup of all purpose flour and add 1 1/4 teaspoon of baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon of salt and whisk together.
Of course I was in a hurry to get the cobbler in the oven and forgot to take step by step pictures of the process. But I did take pictures of the finished cobbler. Looks good enough to eat…and we did!
This is great served warm with ice cream or whipped topping! Try other kinds of fruits if you don’t like blackberries or they aren’t in season. The possibilities are endless.
