Roxie’s Recipes (for the Lazy Cook)

This week, the Harridge Post & Prospector is thrilled to bring you another installment of Roxie’s Recipes (for the lazy cook). This delightful dessert is a hit with everyone up at the Harridge Place…but make sure to limit yourself to two servings, because this one is decadently rich! Roxie’s Blackberry Cobbler is a favorite with Donna down in sheriff’s dispatch.

Although I prefer this blackberry cobbler in the morning, Miss Sandra likes to have it served as dessert after lunch. Drew certainly seemed to like it – I lost track of how many servings he had….

Once again, you regular bakers should have most of these ingredients already on hand. You just need to pick up a couple of containers of fresh blackberries (about 2-1/2 cups worth)

  • For the batter:
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • For the topping:
  • 2/3 cup flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 5 tbs butter
  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Butter and flour a 9×9 baking pan. Melt the 1/3 cup of butter.
  • Stir your dry batter ingredients (flour, sugar & baking powder) together, then add the milk and melted butter. Mix well until you have a nice smooth texture, than pour into your prepared baking pan.
  • Toss the blueberries in a bowl with a couple of tablespoons of cornstarch or flour until lightly coated, then place in a layer on top of your batter.
  • Bake this mixture for about 45 minutes, and in the meantime prepare your streusel topping.
  • Melt the 5 tbs of butter. Combine your dry topping ingredients and then add the melted butter and mix just enough where the topping forms small balls or clumps. Sprinkle the topping over your cobbler and bake for another 20 minutes or so until the topping is a nice golden brown.
  • Add a dollop of dairy topping and serve with fresh coffee.

Now, at 8pm this Friday, tune your radio to KNVC 95.1 FM Carson City – or if you’re not in range, you can pull it up on their website: https://knvc.org. If you happen to miss it for some reason, they will re-air it on Sunday, November 22nd at 9pm.
