Strawberry + Cobbler.... errr... Strawbbler?

Well, this took care of about 1/4 of the strawberries I bought today... right, so who's up for strawberry meatloaf then?

Strawberry Cobbler

4 cups sliced strawberries
½ cup butter (1 stick)
1 ¾ cups sugar
2 cups flour
1 ½ tablespoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
1 ¼ cups milk

Heat oven to 325F.  Place butter in a 13×9 baking dish and melt in the oven as it preheats.

Mix 1 cup sugar with ½ cup flour. Add strawberries and toss. Allow the berries to sit so the sugar dissolves.

In a separate bowl, mix remaining 1 ½ cups flour and ¾ cup sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add milk and whisk until smooth. Remove dish with melted butter from oven. Pour batter over melted butter. Do not stir.  Spoon strawberries on top of batter. Again, do not stir.

It's really not very impressive at this point, I admit.  But just you wait!

Bake for one hour until cobbler is golden brown and bubbly. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or custard.
