5 Minute Microwave Berry Cobbler

 

You might hate me for this. Because, to be honest, I sort of hate myself for this. Unlike those Smarmy Mug Cakes, that we have all been desperate enough to attempt at least once in our lives, this is really good. So good, that I even found myself "recipe testing" it about 17 times in the last month.

You can use frozen berries, if you can’t find them fresh. In California, Strawberries are in season almost all year and I nearly always have them in my fridge. But for the sake of "recipe testing" I used frozen ones and found they work just fine. Obviously, the cooking time is longer, and the water content is higher so it is a bit runnier. But it’s fruit. So that makes it almost like health food….right? Right? (Not really)

Sweet Potato Beer Biscuits With Maple Sage Butter

Ingredients

    For the Biscuits:
  • 1 large sweet potato
  • 2/3 cup beer
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • pinch salt
  • 1 tbs sugar
  • 1 stick butter, cold, cut into small cubes
  • 1 tbs melted butter
  • For the Butter:
  • 3 tbs butter, room temperature
  • 1 sage leaf, minced
  • 1 tsp pure maple syrup

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425.
  2. Pierce the sweet potato all over. Microwave on high until soft, about 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool enough to work with. Remove and discard skin, add sweet potato to a bowl (should be about 3/4 cup of sweet potato mash).
  3. Add the beer to the sweet potatoes and using a potato masher, stir and mash until completely combined.
  4. In a bowl, add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar. Mix to combine.
  5. Add the butter cubes and using your fingers or a pastry blender, rub the butter into the flour until completely combined.
  6. Add the sweet potato beer mixture and mix until just combined.
  7. Form dough into a ball and place on a lightly floured surface. Form into a square, about 1 1/2 inches high, and about 1 foot long. Cut into square biscuits. Place on a baking sheet covered with a Silpat or parchment paper. Brush with melted butter.
  8. Bake at 425 for 15-18 minutes.
  9. In a small bowl, add the maple syrup ingredients and stir until combined.
  10. Serve biscuits warm, with maple sage butter.
