I live in New York, and I have recently noticed that I have two mulberry trees growing in my back yard. One of these trees hangs right over part of my vegetable garden. All the mulberries kept falling on my garden, and this made it really hard to keep up with the weeds. I decided that I would have to figure out something to do with these mulberries, so I decided to start cooking with them. I tried a lot of recipes, but this mulberry cobbler is by far the best!
Okay so first the ingredients! You will need about 2 cups of mulberries, now remember to cut the stems off because the stems are not delicious. The next ingredient is sugar, and you will need about a fourth to a half a cup of sugar depending on how sweet you like things. You will also need six tablespoons of butter, three-fourths of a cup of flour, two teaspoons of baking powder, half a teaspoon of salt, and three-fourths a cup of milk.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees . Next you will need to mix the berries with the sugar, and you can add some apple slices if you like. Sometimes I slice and chop one or two apples and throw them in for variety. After the fruit and sugar is thoroughly mixed melt the butter and pour it into an eight inch square glass dish.
Now mix all of the dry ingredients, and add the milk; remember to keep the berries separate! You can add some granola and/or oats to add some texture. You can also add some lemon zest to the batter in order to spice it up a bit. If you do not want to add these ingredients it will still be delicious, but you can always keep them in mind for latter.
A very important step in this recipe is to pour the batter into the dish. You do not want to mix the batter when it is in the dish because the butter is there first for a reason. Now that the batter is already in the pan you can add your mulberries. Sprinkle them all over the top of the batter.
This may seem like an upside down cobbler, but it is truly scrumptious, and is very easy to make. Bake this dish for about twenty minutes. You will know it is done when a knife comes out clean of batter when it is inserted in the middle of the cobbler.
