BERRY-COBBLER - Berry cobbler

     This recipe was lifted from TV Guide's series of recipes
     from television stars.  It is similar to the recipe for
     Berry Pudding found in Edna Staebler's Food That Really
     Schmecks cookbook.  I will list a few variations on it at
     the end.

     1/2 cup   sugar (for sprinkling)
     4 cups    berries (fresh or frozen)
     1 cup     sugar (for the batter)
     1 cup     all-purpose flour
     1 1/2 tsp baking powder
     1/2 tsp   salt
     1/2 cup   milk
     1/4 cup   butter (softened)

          (1)  Preheat oven to 375 deg. F.

          (2)  Sprinkle 1/2 cup of sugar on the berries, and
               place them in the bottom of a 2-quart baking dish.

          (3)  Combine the remaining dry ingredients (flour,
               sugar, baking powder and salt).

          (4)  Add the milk and softened butter, and beat well.

          (5)  Spoon the batter over the berries. Sprinkle some
               nutmeg on top.

          (6)  Bake for about 45 minutes.

     You can use pretty well any type of berry for the base.  A
     favourite of mine is a combination of strawberries, raspber-
     ries, and blueberries.

     The base of this turns out to be a bit thin and liquidy.  If
     you strain the juice from the fruit, add a couple of table-
     spoons of flour to the juice, and then pour the juice over
     the fruit in the baking dish, the base will be semi-firm.

     You do not need to sprinkle the full 1/2 cup of sugar on the
     berries; with sweeter berries, much less will often suffice.

     If you would like a sweeter, candy-like batter, try adding
     more sugar to the batter.  I wouldn't recommend putting more
     than 1 1/4 cups of sugar into the batter, though-the crust
     of the batter will be very candy-like, but the centre of the
     batter will not properly bake if you do.

     Difficulty: easy.  Time: 10 minutes preparation, 45 minutes
     baking.  Precision: approximate measurement OK.
