According to Wikipedia, cobblers originated in British American Colonies.English settlers were unable to make traditional suet puddings due to lack of ingredients and they covered a stewed filling with a layer of biscuits or dumplings together.I am glad they did:)
For the Base
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1/4 cup of brown sugar
- 1/2 stick unsalted butter (2 oz)
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3/4 cup of milk
For the Top
- 2 cups of blueberries (fresh/frozen)
- 1/3 cup of water
- 1/4 cup of grape molasses/honey
Melt the butter and put it in a baking pan. In a large bowl mix, sugar, salt,vanilla extract and beat them. Then add flour and baking powder together and beat again.
Lay this mixture over the butter evenly.
In a small bowl add blueberries, molasses and water and put this mixture on very top. Spread them evenly. Bake it in a 350 F preheated oven around 40 minutes. Your cobbler is ready.
