David and Margaret (Maggie) Cox, Maggie Valley Berry Patch, Marshall County
- Frozen or fresh berries
- 1⁄4 to 1⁄2 cup sugar (for berries)
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup self-rising flour
- 1 cup milk
- 1⁄2 to 1 stick butter
I prefer to cook this in a cast iron Dutch oven, but it can be done in a regular 9 x 13 baking dish. Butter sides and bottom of baking dish. Pour enough berries in bottom of pan to cover well. Sprinkle 1⁄4 to 1⁄2 cup of sugar over berries. Let sit for about 15 minutes. Mix 1 cup sugar, self-rising flour, and milk (does not have to be mixed smooth). Pour over fruit. Dot with butter. Place in 350 degrees F oven for about 45 minutes. The crust should be light golden brown. Serve as is or with ice cream. Great winter dessert to use frozen fruit!
