Strawberry Cobbler

Strawberry Cobbler

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Clean, rinse and drain the strawberries; slice. Combine the sliced strawberries with 1/3 cup of the sugar. Depending on the sweetness of your strawberries, you may need more or less to sweeten them.

Toss and set aside to macerate, stirring occasionally. Once the sugar is dissolved well, taste and add additional sugar if needed and let sit until the juices re-form. Stir in lemon juice.

Butter an 8 x 8 inch casserole dish; set aside. Whisk together the flour, the remaining sugar and the lemon zest. Beat together the milk and egg, add to the flour mixture, along with the melted butter and whisk until smooth.

Distribute the strawberries evenly into the prepared baking dish and pour the batter over the top. You may also do it in reverse, batter first, topped with berries, and some folks put the butter in the bottom, then the fruit and batter, or the batter and then the fruit. It's all good.

Bake at 325 degrees F for about 55 minutes to one hour, or until golden brown on top. Scoop into individual dishes and serve warm with a drizzle of cream, a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of homemade ice cream.

Try not to eat every bit of it yourself - not that I'd know a thing about that! {wink, wink} Double ingredients for a 9 x 13 inch baking dish, if you have more folks to share it with.
