Now onto the baking. This is the part where Mr. Nomad takes the kiddos upstairs to supervise bath time, and I get the kitchen to myself. Cobbler is his favorite, so he has alterior motives ;)!
This is my mom's cobbler recipe. I follow recipes about as well as I follow patterns, so bear with me.
Step one: I like to start off with clean fresh picked blackberries. I know, I know we can't always have fresh. Frozen works well too. Put the berries into the pan so they are about that far from the top. (Maybe 1 1/2 inches) Lightly coat them with sugar and flour. Approximately 1-2 TBSP of each. So they look like that.
Step two: Mix up the cobbler fixings.
For a 9x13 pan. . .
1 cup oatmeal
1 cup flour
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
2/3 cup butter
Mix the dry ingredients first, then cut in the butter. Sprinkle the mixture around on top of the berries. The end result should look something like this.
Put into a preheated 350 degree F oven, and bake approximately 45 minutes. The top should look golden brown.
