Berry Berry

Every so often my roommates and I get together to have a roommate night.  No boyfriends, no outside friends, just the four of us together.  Each of us makes a course for dinner and brings a bottle of wine (don't bother doing that person per bottle math), and we spend the evening cooking, and talking.  After Jess moved out in June, vacations, work events, and just plain busy schedules took center stage and our roommate nights sort of went by the wayside.  So when Jess came to visit us a few weeks back, OF COURSE we had to have an evening just like old times.  As usual, I was elected to make dessert.  I wanted to make something reminiscent of summer, and after some careful consideration (and polling of the apartment) I made a cobbler with berries and nectarines that had been tempting me for weeks.

Berry and Nectarine Cobbler

1 C blueberries
1C Strawberries, sliced
3 nectarines, cut into about 1 cm chunks
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
2/3 C flour
1/2 C sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2/3 C milk
2 tbsp melted butter

1) Combine all the fruits with nutmeg and cinnamon and set aside
2) Combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl
3) Stir in milk and mix until smooth
4) Put 2 tbsp melted butter in a casserole dish
5) Pour in the batter
6) Sprinkle fruit mixture over batter as evenly as possible
7) Bake at 350 for 40-45 minutes or until lightly browned
8) Serve with vanilla ice cream and enjoy!!
