Especially if you have weight related resolutions still going on.

I will not be held responsible for any pounds gained from this recipe, hehe.

I saw this awesome recipe on her foodTV show and I was hooked.  It looked so simple to make, plus I found blackberries being sold by the quart at the grocer store that week.  I think it was a sign.  I love pie (and all dessert), but I really love cobbler.  Especially with a crunchy sweet crumb topping.  But crumb topping is a huge pain to make and doesn't always turn out. 

This recipe is easy, simple and turns out well every time.  I have made this at least a dozen times over the past few months and came up with my own recipe.  Mainly because I don't have self-rising flour and apparently can't ever buy it either.  I also like mine with less sugar and much more fruit.

Also, please be amazed that I took some pictures of my food before devouring eating it daintily and in a lady-like manner.

Our favorite cobbler.
1. Measure 1 cup flour (+1.333333 tsps baking powder and salt), 1 cup sugar (save 1/4 cup sugar for later) and 1 cup milk. Melt 1 stick butter. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Wash 4 cups or 1 quart fruit (no need to dry). 
3. Find a cute boy to butter the baking dish.  Actually, I'm surprised he didn't take a bite out of the butter after that...
4. Mix dry and then wet ingredients together.  Again, little helpers can assist.
5. Pour batter into 8inch round pie dish.
6. Put fruit on top.
7. Sprinkle reserved 1/4 cup sugar and a healthy grating of nutmeg over top. A little extra salt can't hurt here either.
8. Bake for one hour at 350.

I have, out of concern for my readers, added double baking powder to see what happens.  The entire crust rises over the berries and is still very enjoyable.  You could of course skip the baking powder and just use 1 cup self-rising flour.  I also really enjoy adding double salt.
I usually use blackberries but also enjoyed blueberries, apple and pear.  This one used mostly blackberries and a few pieces of unpeeled apple, since Avi wanted apple pie.
In numbers this recipe is 11111.333331.33333483501. 
Or, if you want to remember it more easily 111111111.
1 cup milk, 1 cup sugar, 1 stick of butter, 1 cup flour, 1 pinch baking powder, 1 pinch salt, 1 quart fruit, 1 pie tin, 1 hour at 350.

My little helper all dressed for baking in his favorite milk and cookies pajamas.

This little stinker has a surprisingly looooong reach when it comes to cobbler.  (And how let her make a mess all over the coffee table? Shameless stuff.)

I can safely say that my whole family likes this, even Ryan who prefers straight hot fudge usually.  I like to think it's a pretty healthy dessert since it has milk and so much fruit, but it's addictive so don't say I didn't warn you.
