Fresh Berry Cake made in a Dutch Oven





I am a Dutch Oven cook, always looking for ideas to make in a dutch oven. I found this idea in Ree Drummond's cookbook The Pioneer Woman Cooks. She calls it Patsy's Blackberry Cobbler, on pages 212 -213.  I love her book because she creates food that we love, she has great photos and instructions.


1 stick melted butter
1 1/4 c, plus 2 T sugar
1 c self rising flour
1 c milk
2 c fresh or frozen berries (blackberry, marionberry, blueberry, peaches, etc)


Mix butter, 1 cup sugar, flour, and milk. Pour into a well buttered 10" dutch oven. Sprinkle the berries evenly over the batter. Sprinkle 1/2 c sugar over the top.  Bake at 350, for about 40 minutes until golden brown. About 5 minutes before finishing the baking sprinkle 2 T sugar over the top.


Serve warm with vanilla ice cream, Yum!
