Baking for the Holidays Giveaway

It was COLD outside today and with all of the juicing, I was really craving something warm and sweet!  I remember my grandmother always baking us home made sweets!  Cookies, pie, cake, cobbler....  Cobbler! That's it!  That is what I want!

This recipe is super simple and hit the spot!.

1 cup of Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Flour
1 cup of sugar
1 stick of butter
3/4 cup of milk
1 can of unsweetned cherries

Melt the butter in an 8x8 pyrex dish  (I just put the butter in the pyrex dish and microwaved until it had melted, or you could melt the butter 1st and pour it into an aluminum pan)

Mix the flour and sugar together.

Pour the milk in and stir.

Pour the batter over the butter. Do not stir or mix together.

Spoon the cherries on top.  Do not mix.

Bake on 350 for 50 minutes.  Remove and let cool for about 10 minutes.  Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and enjoy!

My husband was super feliz to be able to eat something so delicious and normal!  It was a welcomed site to his eyes and taste buds after being subjected to my "green drinks!"

Now I'm in baking mode and looking forward to making Christmas cookies and other yummy holiday treats.

Hodgson Mill provided me with the flour free of charge.  All opinions are my own.


  1. Well the kids like for me to make tamales during the holidays.... But that's not really baking. I really like to make my Granny's homemade peach cobbler. I think I will make it today or tomorrow.

  2. My favorite thing to bake during the holidays is sweet potato casserole with pecan topping! Yummy!

  3. Oops forgot to leave my email.

  4. I like to make pumpkin custard. Yum!

  6. That sure looks yummy! We're going to be baking some sugar cookies and cupcakes soon! "Tis the season!

  7. Most, if not all, of my baking during the holidays surrounds making our son egg and milk-free cookies and cupcakes. : ) I'm always on the lookout for more options! BTW -- cobbler looks scrumptious.

  8. That looks delicious Tara. I'm not surprised that your hubby enjoyed it so much. I always make banana bread for Christmas and of course some cookies for Santa.

  9. I made some yummy gluten-free shortbread cookies last week :)

  10. Thanks to everyone who commented!!
