More summer bounty
This is so simple and you can make it with any fresh or frozen fruit you have on hand.
2 Tablespoons butter
1/4 cup and 2 Tablespoons flour
1/4 cup and 2 Tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup and 2 Tablespoons milk
1 cup sliced strawberries, or raspberries, or fresh peaches, or nectarines, or whole blackberries
1-1/2 teaspoons sugar
Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Put butter in a small casserole dish and put it in a microwave to melt it. Remove from microwave and swirl it around to coat the sides and bottom of the casserole.
In a separate bowl, whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt to mix. Add milk and whisk it into the dry ingredients to make a smooth batter. Pour batter into the casserole, then scatter your fruit over the batter. Sprinkle 1-1/2 teaspoons of sugar over the fruit.
Bake at 350 degrees until the batter browns and the fruit bubbles. My oven takes 50 minutes.
Serve warm with ice cream, or cold with cream.
