Three day weekends don’t have the same umpf when you’re unemployed. It’s funny, really. Everyone pumped about getting Monday off and I’m just here chilling with everyday off, ha. Somehow I still stay extremely busy, but I couldn’t tell you what it is that is keeping me so busy.
This weekend was rapid fire. I was home in San Diego. My sister flew in, my boyfriend flew in, my grandparents drove down, there’s old friends and family I haven’t seen in awhile, there’s lots to fit in! We had friends and family over to my parents house for Memorial Day and it was nice to relax and enjoy some amazing food, drinks and conversation.
We ended the weekend with another mulberry recipe – mulberry cobbler. So good that my boyfriend and my best friend from high school bonded over getting a second and third scoop. For everyone trying to get back into the swing of things after a long weekend, make some of this cobbler with whatever berries look best at the store and a dollop of ice cream, and relish in the fact that summer is here.
Start with 1 cup of self rising flour, or make your own with 1 cup of flour, 1 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. This is important. I used normal flour on the first two batches and it made a world of difference on the third batch when I added in the baking powder and salt.
Add 1 cup sugar, 3/4 cup milk and a teaspoon of vanilla to the flour and mix well.
Cut up a stick of butter and put it in the bottom of an 8×8 baking dish. Throw it in your preheating oven (375 degrees) until it melts completely.
Mix 2 cups of mulberries (or any other berry) with 1/3 cup of sugar in a saucepan and heat to melt the sugar.
Pour the flour mixture over the melted butter.
Top with the mulberry mixture and bake at 375 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until it no longer wiggles when you shake it.
Serve with a dollop (or two) of ice cream and good company.
