One more excellent strawberry dessert. This recipe is a new one to me, but Mommy had made it before. I was so happy to be around when she made it this time. It was absolutely delicious! This is one time I was a little sad that I am being so careful about eating sweets—doctors orders. I only had one spoonful. And it was about the best thing I've tasted in ages.
Daddy-O came down to visit for a couple of days while I was at Mommy's for the week. She did need to use the strawberries, but I think she made the cobbler especially for her daddy. He loved it! Grandchildren and strawberry cobbler. How perfect a visit was that for him?
1 cup self-rising flour (or, 1 c. all-purpose flour + 1/2 tsp salt & 1-1/2 tsp baking powder)
1 cup sugar
1 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 cups sweetened strawberries, fresh or frozen (used 1 cup sugar to sweeten berries)
1 stick butter
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Melt butter in a 2 to 2-1/2 quart casserole. While butter is melting, cut strawberries and sweeten with sugar and let stand while you mix batter.
Mix dry ingredients together. Stir in milk until smooth. Pour batter over melted butter. DO NOT STIR!
Pour strawberries down the center of batter. DO NOT STIR! (Optional: Sprinkle about a tablespoon of sugar over the batter and strawberries to make a nice finish on baked cobbler.)
Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, or until you can insert a knife into center of and peep into the cobbler. The batter should be cake-like and not soupy.
