Easy mixed berry cobbler

Last night, I threw together the fastest dessert I have ever made. Surprisingly, it was one of the best desserts I have ever had. How often do you get rewarded for not putting in a whole lot of effort? I used this fantastic recipe and only made minor modifications. 

2 - 2.5 C frozen or fresh mixed berries
3/4 C all purpose flour
3/4 C milk
1/2 C sugar
4 Tbsp unsalted butter
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp almond extract

Melt the butter in a pie dish. Mix together the flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, milk, and the extracts. Pour into the pan. Scatter the berries in the batter. Top with a tablespoon of sugar. Bake for 45-50 minutes in a 350F oven. Serve warm, with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for an extra special treat. Bliss!

Notes : 
  • 1/2 C sugar was plenty. In fact, it was a little sweeter than I prefer. Maybe the berries were very sweet by themselves. I will use a bit less sugar next time. 
  • I loved the almond flavor with the berries. 
  • Lemon zest might accent the flavors really well.
