I'll share it with you just so you can have the joy of making fun of me. You're welcome.
I recently watched an episode of The Pioneer Woman on Food Network. She made this delicious looking cobber. So on Memorial Day, I thought I'd make it and then share the recipe with you.
Ree's Blackberry Cobbler. Click here for the recipe.
I decided to make the cobbler with blueberries, since that's one of my favorite flavors for cobbler (along with peach). So I made the batter according to her recipe.
Then I topped the batter with blueberries.
Then I sprinkled it with sugar. I cut back some on sugar since blueberries are so sweet already. I was so excited! I hadn't made cobbler in ages. I pulled it out of the oven and...
What??? It looked flat as a flitter! Didn't even look cooked. It was ghostly pale. Didn't look yummy and golden like Ree's. What happened??
Well, the flatness was a clue. I went to check the bag of flour. And yes, you guessed it. I used all-purpose flour!! How could I have made that rookie mistake??!!!
So embarrassing. I can't believe I'm even admitting this online--and sharing a photo no less.
It still tasted okay. Not great, but okay. We managed to eat it all. I even sent home some (the missing portion you see in the photo) with my son back to North Carolina. I got a text that night from him that said: "I'm sitting here eating blueberry cobbler, missing you."
I thought, how sweet. And then I got another immediate text that, oops, that message was meant for his girlfriend!! LOL Then he added that he missed me, too.
Oh, well. At least he was eating the cobbler and didn't notice it looked weird. :)
So, share you biggest cooking flop. Please, so I feel better about myself.
