Happy Friday! It’s raining here in Missouri again and no doubt, that will complicate the creek and river level situation. I hope this isn’t turning in a “Flood of 93′ ” again. Last summer we had terrible drought condition and now it’s just swung the other way around. I’m glad we got rain, but wow.. this is ridiculous. The river starts to drop a little and people in flooded areas breathe a sigh of relief and then BAM more rain. It’s also about 40 degrees so it’s cold for May. I’m all for cooler than normal temperatures but it does not feel like May around here.
Last night at Sam’s Club, I got 2 pounds of strawberries for only 3$. It was a steal, so today I was thinking about what I could make for the blog with these lovelies. I came up with the most delicious cobbler ever. I’m not kidding. This thing is DELICIOUS! I tried to force the hubster to try it just because it was so “MMMMMMMM” but he wasn’t having any of it. Ol’ stick in the mud he is! The best part of this recipe is that not only is it freakin’ delicious, but it’s really really easy to make. It’s also low in fat, calories and decent on carbs too. REALLY! Let’s get on with the baking!
- 4 cup of washed and sliced delicious strawberries. The one I used were the Pict Sweet brand
- 1 cup of flour (all purpose)
- 1 cup of sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
- 1/4 cup of butter. I used Blue Bonnet Light Stick Butter
- 1 egg
- Preheat your oven to 375 degrees
- wash and cut up your berries and spread them over the bottom of an 8×8 0r 9×9 dish. I used a stoneware Pampered Chef pan
- In another bowl, mix the flour, cinnamon, baking powder and sugar in a bowl with a fork. This is the same as sifting it. Cool, huh?
- In a small bowl, beat the egg with a fork.
- Pour the egg mixture into the flour mixture and mix it up with the fork until it is crumbly and combined
- sprinkle the crumbly mixture over the top of the strawberries
- cut up your butter into little squares and place them evenly over the top of the crumbles/strawberries
- Bake for 45-50 minutes until the top of the cobbler is lightly browned and tasty looking
- When the cobbler is hot, it will look rather.. liquidy. Don’t worry, as it cools a little, it will set although there will still be some liquid. It’s super tasty though and is not a problem
That’s it. Enjoy! I would predict this would make oh.. about 9-12 servings. I’m going to say 9 just to be conservative. Add some cool whip or ice cream if you like, just be sure to add those calories onto the figures below for an accurate total.
