Sharing is caring! This is what this recipe reminds me of. One, because my husband’s grandma shared this recipe with me and two, I made it to share it with my sister and her family. Plus now I am sharing it all with you! Isn’t it crazy how social media works? And how we are nowadays connected?
We went berry picking yesterday and I shared our fun adventure on Instagram stories. As soon as we got home my hubby made this recipe and I also captured it all and shared it on Instagram too.Many of you asked for the recipe and here I am. I love loooove connecting with you guys and other food lovers that get as excited to make, eat, and share food. May we always have that in us because as the great Julia child once said: “People who love to eat are always the best people.”
This recipe is very simple and taste so so good. I first had it in Oregon where my husband’s family is from and they served it with homemade banana ice cream.
Originally the recipe calls for 1 cup of sugar but I think a little less sugar will be best, so I adjusted the measurements in the recipe below.
- ¾ cup + 1½ tablespoons sugar
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ½ cup milk
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon melted butter
- 1 cup berries (I used raspberries but any other berry will do)
- ¾ cup boiling water
- Sift together ½ cup of the sugar, flour, baking powder and salt.
- Stir in milk, vanilla, and melted butter
- Mix well to create a batter
- Spread batter in greased 8x8 pan
- Scatter berries over the batter
- Sprinkle remaining sugar evenly over berries
- Pour boiling water over everything
- Bake in a preheated oven at 375 F for 30 minutes or until lightly golden brown on top
- Serve warm with vanilla ice cream
