Hey Yall!
IT IS SNoWING AGAIN here in the south east!
So what does one do on a cold wintery night?

Make a gooey dessert of course!

This is the recipe I have in the book Red Velvet Cupcake

Murder byJoanne Fluke.

My character Nurse Jenny gives this recipe to Delores the
mother of the main character Hannah and I also help solve

 a murder
Yes I know I am a nerd but this still tickles me to no end!

It is actually according to my Memes cookbook my Great 

Grandma Colvilles recipe for Easy Fruit Pie.

** I cut the recipe in half for just the two of us.

Start by setting the oven at 425 and melt 1/2 stick of butter 
in a dish of your choice. The bigger the dish the thinner it will be and the faster it will cook. I use a 9 inch ceramic pie plate.

1 cup self rising flour (all purpose is fine, it just makes it more dense)
1 cup sugar
stir together with a wire whisk
add 1 cup milk (canned or from the jug either works)
1 tsp. vanilla
mix it all together while your butter is melting.
Once the butter is melted, take it out of the oven and
pour the batter over the melted butter.
Then take your choice of canned fruit, canned pie filling or frozen fruit that has been thawed what ever you like.
I used cherry pie filling.
Spoon your fruit over the batter. Do Not Stir. Just drop spoofulls over the batter.
Juice and all.
Bake 45 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly.
Serve with Vanilla Ice Cream, whipped cream or plain, I am eating mine with snow cream tonight 

Let me know if you try it!


  1. This looks delicious...Cody would love it so I will definitely have to give it a try! Stay warm and cozy my friend!


  2. Gooey desserts sound perfect right now. It has been super cold in Ohio and I cannot wait for it to warm up some!! It has been so cold you can't even enjoy the snow!
