strawberry, blueberry, cobbler, recipe — Eating Out Loud Berry season is upon us and I couldn’t be more happy. Whether you’re looking for strawberries, blueberries, raspberries or boysenberries, the fruits are becoming readily available and at affordable prices. This berry cobbler is versatile and a great use of any type of berry or soft and juicy fruit. Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve been wrangling with our excess of strawberries. I made strawberry cornmeal muffins, jam and froze a bunch for later use, but I still had quite a few in the fridge. Myrnie from I Wonder Woman suggested Magic Cobbler, which I hadn’t heard of before. The recipe is simple and perfect for those afraid of baking. I’ve played around with the recipe a little bit, adding some cinnamon and nuts, both of which are optional. Strawberry-Blueberry Magic Cobbler inspired by Grandma Mary’s Magic Cobbler and Southern Peach Cobbler Preheat oven to 375F (190C). In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, granulated sugar, milk, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.

Spring Battenburg Cake This was my first time making Battenburg cake, and it certainly will not be my last. I'm smitten! I love the bright almond flavor the cake imparts, and I can't help but smile at the colorful two-by-two checked pattern. Traditionally the cuboid cakes are pink and yellow, but I've always thought pink and green conveyed the feeling of spring more perfectly. I had a difficult time finding good step-by-step instructions for this recipe, so I am including my own in this post. I didn't have the two 7" square pans called for in the original recipe, so I had to work around that. I ended up using a 10 x7 stoneware dish with the parchment divider and it worked great. As a final touch, I dressed the cake in white fondant and added pearl dragees. Spring Battenburg Cake [click to print] Serves 6-8 Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line the pan: Fold a piece of parchment paper in half, then, while folded, trim the edges to fit the length of the pan. Store in an airtight container or wrap in cling film.

Outrageous Oreo Crunch Brownies Now these brownies are just dangerous. It made a huge 9x13 pan (and this was halving the recipe) and I ended up freezing most of them. And now for the past couple of months I've been slowly nibbling away at my stash. I love eating them frozen - they're so fudgey, rich and chocolatey. Yum yum dangerous. Of course they're delicious at room temperature too. Oh and guess what?

Cinnamon Streusel Baked Donuts So here’s the thing. Wes is apparently not ever in the mood to sleep these days. Not at night, not during naptimes, nothing. I love my little dude so stinking much, but how do you tell a 4-month-old that mama needs sleep to be able to play all day long, make up silly songs, snuggle and read? Yes, tried to reason with a baby. So on the eve of our first flight together I’ve decided to share my favorite donut recipe to date – because if there’s anything that I like to eat when I’m having to prop my eyelids open with toothpicks it’s soft warm donuts with mounds of buttery-cinnamony-salty goodness baked on top. For the donuts: 1 cup flour1 tsp baking powder1/4 tsp salt1/3 cup sugar2 eggs1/4 cup vegetable oil2 Tbsp plain yogurt1/2 tsp vanilla extract For the streusel: 1/4 cup brown sugar2 Tbsp oatmeal1 Tbsp butter1/2 tsp cinnamon1/8 tsp salt Preheat your oven to 375. Now if you’ll excuse me I’m off to talk to Wes about the chances of him sleeping and eating well on the plane tomorrow.

Joe Pastry - Category: Yeast Raised This is a serious dessert mousse, friends. A chocolate experience so rich, velvety and decadent, a few tablespoons is really all that any one person needs. I usually chuckle when I watch Mrs. Pastry eat chocolate bars, because she nibbles them like a mouse, savoring every tiny morsel. With a little pâte à bombe on hand, chocolate mousse is a ridiculously easy thing to make. 4 ounces pâte à bombe 6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate 8 ounces (1 cup) heavy cream, whipped to soft peaks Begin by whipping the cream just about to the soft peak stage (or less), you want it a little loose and runny. Stir it until it’s uniform… The mixture will firm up here and look a little rough. No matter, I just add in about a third of the whipped cream… …and whisk it in until it’s all smooth: I then do the same with the remaining cream… …and that’s pretty much it!

Quick Chicken and Gravy — Our Life In The Kitchen It’s been a busy week, one where quick and easy is the only hope of cooking dinner instead of doing takeout. A bag of frozen chicken tenderloins pulled from the freezer, steamed rice and whatever veggie might be on hand and dinner’s ready in about 30 minutes. Chicken tenderloinsButterFlourSalt/PepperMarjoram and Thyme tonight, because I’m out of Sage.Chicken Broth Melt enough butter to generously cover the bottom of a large saute pan.

Lemon-Lime Bars From now on whenever I think of lemon bars I’ll be reminded of the time that I first met a group of cousins I never knew I had. We all convened at my parents’ house (it turns out they don’t live that far away) for dinner the day after Christmas, just ten days ago. Their great-great-great-grandfather was my great-great-grandfather. One of my “new” cousins, about my same age, brought over lemon bars that day. This little reunion prompted me to share a recipe for Creamy Lemon-Lime Bars today. Creamy Lemon-Lime Bars Adapted slightly from the Luscious Lemon Squares recipe on the side of the Safeway Sweetened Condensed Milk can. Prep time: 15 minutes | Cook time: 45 minutes | Total time: 60 minutes (plus cooling time) Yield: 16 squares 6 tablespoons unsalted butter1 cup all-purpose flour1 tablespoon granulated sugarDash salt1/3 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice1/3 cup freshly squeezed lime juice1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk2 large eggsPowdered sugar for sprinkling on top (I omitted this)
