Did you tune in to UP for this week's new episode of Bringing Up Bates? Michael made her famous blackberry cobbler for the last time before marrying Brandon Keilen and moving to Chicago. It was a bittersweet day for the Bates family.
For those who are eager to try this Bates delicacy, here's the recipe (video also below):
Michael Bates' Blackberry Cobbler
1 stick butter
1 cup self-rising flour
1 cup milk
1 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Blackberries or other fruit*
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In the pan you will use to make the cobbler, place the stick of butter and put pan in hot oven so that butter melts. (The Bates family uses a cast iron skillet.)
- In a separate bowl, combine self-rising flour, milk, sugar, and vanilla. Mix well. Add the blackberries (or other fruit) to the batter.
- Pour batter into hot pan with melted butter. Bake at 350 degrees for 45-60 minutes.
*The Bates don't specify how much fruit to add, but we recommend 3-4 cups.
