I hope this week has been good to you. But in case it hasn't, I think this recipe would help cure whatever is troubling you. ;)
I decided to make this dessert for Memorial Day - and it was really yummy and perfect for the occasion. Not only the beautiful colors the berries provided, but it was so tasty too! I forgot to get photos of it "in progress" when I was making it.
So you'll just have to settle for photos of the end result - which are quite pretty with all those jewel color berries, don't you think?
And part of the excuse for this dessert is to show off my new Temptations berry pan. I thought it was perfect for this dessert, as it has raspberries, blackberries, and blueberries in it! I LOVE Temptations (dishware and bakeware you can find on QVC)! Do any of you have some of their stuff? It's so wonderful because it's hand painted and pretty - but very affordable. Plus, it goes in the freezer, dishwasher, microwave and oven all safely. I'm not associated with QVC, or getting anything for saying any of this. Just sharing my genuine love of Temptations dishes! ;)
Anyway, on with the recipe. I found this recipe here, which I used to base this on...but I changed a few things. It called for more sugar and water than what was needed. We ate ours warm with creamy vanilla bean frozen yogurt. Yum!!! So here's the recipe I did:
1 cup milk
2 cups flour
3 cups berries
(Berries can be frozen, just add 3-5 minutes more cooking time. I used a frozen
mixed bag of blueberries, blackberries & raspberries)
¾ to 1 cup granulated
sugar (original recipe called for more sugar here – but this is about right for
that sweet/tart flavor, which I prefer. If you want it sweet add more)
1 cup or so boiling water (the original recipe
called for much more water, and it’s not needed)
and sugar together, then add milk on slow speed.
ingredients together and add to wet a couple of tablespoon at a time, until
should be thick. Pour into greased 13 x
9 x 2 inch pan and scatter berries over top. Sprinkle with the other ¾ to 1 cup
sugar and pour the boiling water carefully over the top, dot with remaining 3
Bake at 425°F for 30 minutes or until golden
