when we lived in athens georgia many years ago (1989-91), things were good. we saw peter buck at the grocery store, michael stipe actually walked the streets without any fanfare, and we made a few pilgrimages each june to miller's blueberry farm in watkinsville to pick blueberries.
for years, i made their blueberry buckle recipe. sometime in 2003-04 (it's important enough that i remember when), i lost the tattered paper from miller's on which the recipe was printed. i've tried since then to replicate the recipe, and this is as close as i've come. thus far.
it is luscious. made it midafternoon. tonight, after grilling out, we'll have it, topped with homemade ice cream (recipe to follow, perfect, yum, oooh la la.).
and then, of course, 70 hours of cardio. heh.
1/2 c butter, well softened
1/2 c sugar
1 egg, at room temperature.
2 c flour
2.5 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 c milk
pour into a greased deep dish pie pan or 11x8 casserole.
pour 2 c fresh blueberries.
1/2 c sugar
1/2 c flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 c butter
sprinkle over the berries.
bake at 350 degrees fahrenheit for :45.
total summer-only yum. don't you dare use canned fruit in here, though you can use almost any combination of fresh fruit. one of my aunts used to mix pecans into the streusel; another would mix pecans into the actual batter. the true southern cobbler has the fruit stirred in, but you'll see that the batter rises around the fruit as it cooks.
