10 Pounds of Berries Equal...

Yesterday I shared with you the very busy, and super fun day Monkey and I had Memorial Day weekend. Well, when your little man picks 10 pounds of strawberries, it's a Mommy's job to find something to make with them! Don't get me wrong, for us, snacking on them is the #1 priority. I wash them, dry them and put them in a huge bowl in the fridge and we just eat them as is. But no matter how many we eat, or how fast, I never want to take the chance of them going bad before we can eat them all. Monkey's hard work can't go to waste. Last year when we picked is when I debuted my mom's Strawberry Shortcake here on EMM; and it will always be my favorite thing to make with fresh picked berries. But this year I wanted something a little different, a little new. This dessert can be made in almost no time at all. The most time consuming part you'll have is slicing the berries! I made it in the morning and let it completely cool for serving with supper, but I'm sure it would be amazing served warm too! It just looks like summer to me; and I'm happy to have another berry recipe in my arsenal, because as he gets bigger, that 10 pounds of berries is only going to multiply!!

Strawberry Cobbler 
1 c. flour
1 c. sugar
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 egg, beaten
4 TBS butter, diced
4 c. sliced strawberries

Preheat oven to 375. Spray a 8x8 inch baking pan w/ cooking spray. Spread berries evenly on bottom of pan. In a large bowl combine all dry ingredients. Mix well. Add egg, and with fork mix until crumbly. Pour on berries and spread into even layer. Dot w/ diced butter. Bake for 45-50 minutes until golden on top and berries are bubbling. Cool slightly before serving. Serve w/ whipped cream or ice cream, if desired.

Well, I did use the smaller ones for this recipe, so it took a little extra. Some went in the Key Lime Fruit Salad I shared earlier this week, and for the rest? Well, we're still snacking on them!

I have a question: I am allergic to strawberries. Do you think this recipe would work for raspberries, blueberries and/or blackberries?

Krista said...

It sure does. And here is the proof. Easy Blackberry Cobbler :) http://everydaymomsmeals.blogspot.com/2013/08/the-very-first.html
