Blackberry Cake Cobbler, Recipe

Blackberry

Are you often looking for a homemade dessert that is quick & easy, and oh so tasty? Something that can be changed up a bit depending on what fruit you decide to use? Then you’ll definitely want to try this Cake Cobber. It has the fruit like a cobbler, but the crust is more like a cake. And Oh So Yummy!

I make this dessert regularly and everybody loves it. It is a great dessert that can be put into the oven while cooking dinner and it will be ready to enjoy by the time dinner is over. And I am often asked for the recipe after I have made it for others. So I decided to share this with you today.

I think you’ll really love this recipe. I have made this with fresh fruit, fresh-frozen fruit, or a can of fruit pie filling. So keep that in mind when you are making your own. Also, just a quick heads up, this recipe doesn’t double well. I don’t know why, but it has run over every time that I have tried to double it, even if I use a much larger dish. If you want it to serve more than 4-8 depending on serving size, then I suggest making separate dishes.

I have also made this recipe for many years with one can of fruit pie filling. It can be easily changed up using different pie filling flavors; apple, cherry, blueberry, blackberry, cherry, etc. The recipe featured today is with Blackberry. Because my husband has been requesting it.

But I have also made it with fresh fruit or fresh frozen fruit. We now have our own blackberries bush in our yard, so we love using our fresh berries when we have them. It works well with fresh blueberries too, maybe even fresh rasberries.

Don’t forget to come back to let me know how much you love it.

TIPS:

Once the butter is melted make sure you add the dry ingredients and milk into the hot dish and then mix well.

Please don’t make the mistake that I have made and try to double this recipe. It will run over.

Depending on serving size, this will feed 6-8

This is best served warm (add a little vanilla ice cream ~ delish)

Does this sound like something you’ll want to try?

CheeseCake Cups, Recipe

Cheesecake Cups

Are you looking for a tasty dessert that is great to take to a party or other gathering? But maybe you want something simple and easy to serve?

How about Cheesecake Cups? They still offer the wonderful flavor of cheesecake but in a single serve size, no cutting needed.

I love to entertain in my home and try new recipes. This Cheesecake Cups recipe has gone over well every time that I have served them at gatherings.

This recipe is in two (2) parts; crust & filling

Ingredients

Crust:

2/3 cup of graham cracker crumbs

2 TBPS sugar

1 TBSP margarine, melted

Filling:

2 pkgs cream cheese, 8 oz each & softened

½ Cup sugar

3 tsp lemon juice

1 tsp lemon zest, finely grated

½ tsp vanilla

2 eggs

Crust Directions:

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Mix together the graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and margarine with a fork until combined. Measure it evenly into 12 muffin papers. Press firmly. Bake the crust for 5 minutes. Let cool.

Filling Directions:

Using a mixer, beat together the cream cheese, sugar, vanilla, lemon juice, and lemon zest. Once it is mixed well, add the eggs.

Then pour evenly into the 12 prepared graham cracker cups. Fill ½ – ¾ full. Bake at 325 degrees for about 25 minutes.

Cool completely in pan. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

TIPS

I have a magic bullet that I have used to pulse my graham crackers into crumbs. I used it when I was without my chopper. Either works fine depending on how small you want the crumbs.

When serving at my own home I put the fruit filling in different serving dishes & let the guest add their own. If taking with me to a party I will have a couple of different toppings on top for them to choose from.

AND…………Look!!!!!!
