  At Camp 18 in Seaside Oregon, we enjoyed "Marionberry Deep Dish Cobbler". 
It was different in that the "biscuit" part had a more tender, cake-like 
taste and feel.  It did not have that common baking powder taste.  The exact 
recipe, or something simular would be appreciated. Thanks! 

Hello Kay,

Camp 18 doesn't give out their recipe, and I had no success locating a copycat.

There's one recipe for marionberry cobbler below and recipes here:

Marionberry Cobbler

recipe provided by the Oregon Raspberry and Blackberry Commission. 

4 cups fresh or frozen Marionberries and their juice 
3/4 cup granulated sugar 
2 tbsp. all-purpose flour 
2 tsp. fresh squeezed lemon juice 
2 tbsp. unsalted butter 
Biscuit Topping 
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour  1 tsp. baking powder 
1/4 tsp. baking soda  1 tbsp. granulated sugar 
4 tbsp. unsalted butter  1 cup buttermilk 

Heat the oven to 350. In a large bowl, combine Marionberries and their juice, 
sugar, flour and lemon juice. Gently toss the berries to combine with the other 
ingredients. Spoon the berry mixture into a deep, 8" square ceramic baking dish. 
Bake for 20 minutes. As the berry mixture is baking, prepare the biscuit topping.

In a food processor, add the flour, baking powder, soda and sugar and process to 
combine. Add the butter to the flour mixture and process until the butter is the 
size of small peas. With the processor running, add enough of the buttermilk to 
make a moist dough. 

Remove the berry mixture from the oven. Keep the oven turned to 350. Drop large 
spoonfuls of the dough onto the top of the berry mixture. Return the cobbler to 
the oven and bake for 20 minutes. Remove the cobbler from the oven and let it cool 
on a rack until it is just warm. Serve with vanilla ice cream.

I have been looking for a recipe for a 100% rye bread that is cooked at a low temperature 
for a long time (ie 16-24 hours) so that colour and flavour are achieved by the Maillard 
reaction rather than colouring agents like cocoa.  I looked through the archive and didn't 
find it although I may have missed it. 



Hello Bill,

I think what you want is a German Pumpernickel recipe. See here for one that's baked for 20-24 hours:



Microwave Charts

From: Bette To: Subject: Microwave charts Date: Monday, September 07, 2009 4:57 PM I had a few young people who just bought MicroWaves tell me they can't do more than heat water for tea in their Microwave. Everything else is always tough or over done. I asked them to check out their Microwave wattage and adjust the recipe to fit their oven. I copied some recipes from Marie Smith's book Microwave cooking for one. With kids going off to college with Microwaves under their arms I think you should mention Wattage charts to them Microwave Cooking Tips: Conversion Charts. I have the cookbook although I still cook stove top I understand my Microwave more. I lost the chart Ms.Smith had in her book so I went to her website and there it was. I know you don't recommend buying cookbooks but this one wasn't too much money paperback. If they happened to want it. Bette

Gosh, Bette.... When did I say I didn't recommend buying cookbooks? Actually, I do recommend that people buy cookbooks. I buy them often, just to read.

I do think it's a waste to buy a cookbook just for one recipe without checking the Internet first to see if the recipe's on there.
