Individual Raspberry Cobblers
Is it hot enough yet for anyone who lives in the state of Virgina? We have had several days in the upper 90's with the humidity to match. Whew....is it ever warm here! My youngest son who has asthma always seems to get sick when the weather suddenly warms up or cools down and right now is no different. His allergies are acting up and I just hope I don't hear coughing tonight because then I know his asthma is acting up too. I'm just glad that it seems the older he is getting the less these symptoms occur. He only gets flare ups maybe 2 times a year where he has to take steroids. This is one childhood illness that does get better as they get older.
I was not going to post this recipe since I don't have a picture of the finished product!!! But then I remembered why I didn't.....they were sooo good and were eaten before I could even get a picture!!! I found the recipe at The Pioneer Woman Cooks ! I've found so many good recipes at her site and I'm sure most of your are familiar with her. These were fantastic. For a photo of the finished cobbler just click on the link and you can see it. Mine didn't look quite like hers. Mine looked more like a small muffin. But much tastier than any muffin I ever made. Ree says to serve these warm with ice cream or whipped cream and I'm sure that would be really good, but they are just plain terrific on their own too. I highly recommend trying these. You can also try different berries for variety. I like how they looked and tasted with raspberries....really good!
2 cups self rising flour - MUST use self rising flour
2 cups sugar
2 cups milk
2 sticks butter (there go my bathing suit thighs)
1 tsp vanilla extract
Extra sugar for sprinkling
Preheat oven to 350F. Combine flour with sugar, then whisk in milk. Whisk in melted butter and vanilla. Pour 1/4 cup batter into greased muffin tins. Sprinkle a few raspberries on top. Bake at 350F for 45 minutes or until golden brown and crisp around edges. Invert onto cooling rack and serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream.
