THIS WEEK'S CRAVINGS #28 (Brunch Recipes) and Pineapple Berry Cobbler

The Theme is: Brunch Recipes
(Share a wonderful brunch recipe you had for Mother's Day!)
My Mother's Day was filled with family, relaxing, NO cooking and an Angel's Baseball game. It was a wonderful way to spend Mother's Day with my children and my husband (who often works on holiday's).

My daughter Kayley LOVES making dessert, the other twin Ashlyn LOVES making meals. They have been wanting to make everything in the cookbook they bought me for Christmas The Princess and the Frog: Tiana's Cookbook: Recipes for Kids (Disney Princess: the Princess and the Frog) (Hardcover). This is our second recipe we've liked and still plan on making many more.

This is a reverse cobbler, instead of the filling on the bottom you put it on top and then as it bakes the topping puffs up and over the bubbling fruit! It was delicious! We served it with whip cream, but vanilla ice cream would have been so much better. I just LOVE that my daughters are enjoying cooking and baking so much! They are actually in the process of creating their own blog. I am so excited for them and of course, I will be sharing it with all of you as soon as it's up and running!

Pineapple Berry Cobbler

1/2 cup butter
3 cups sliced strawberries (original recipe was peaches)
1/2 can of pineapple chunks (add by my creative daughter)
1 cup raspberries
1 cup sugar
1 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
1 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
Whipped Cream or Vanilla Ice Cream for topping

Heat the oven to 350. Use a pat of the butter to grease a cast-iron skillet (or a casserole dish). Set the skillet aside. Melt the remaining butter in a saucepan over low heat. Remove the pan from the stove and set it aside.

Combine the fruit in a medium bowl and sprinkle 1 tbsp of the sugar over them. Gently stir the fruit and then set it aside.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Add the remaining sugar, the milk, and the vanilla extract. Stir until the mixture is evenly blended.

Pour the melted butter into the batter and stir quickly but gently to mix it in. Immediately pour the batter into the skillet. Add the fruit with it's juices, spooning it evenly into the pan and lightly pressing it partway into the batter with spatula.

Bake the cobbler until the top is golden brown, about 1 hour. Serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream.
