Well, I wouldn’t typically show you such a dirty dish, but the dirtier the better for this post.
My BlogSpark and P&G recently sent me the baking dish and some Cascade Complete All-in-1 Action Pacs to give them a try.
Let me tell you, most everything I buy is store brand. I shop at Aldi’s for groceries, and Walmart for household products. I used the Walmart brand of dishwasher soap, because well…it was cheaper. On a typical day, I do 2 loads of dishes, on a cooking or baking day, I’ve been known to have 5-6 loads, so I try to save where I can. Before I tried the Cascade Action Pacs, I really thought that my dishwasher was not very good, that maybe it was just a bottom of the line dishwasher and didn’t get the job done. I would spend lots of time, pre-washing, rinsing and MOST of the time, re-washing dishes that came out of the dishwasher still dirty. So, I not only was spending more time washing the dishes, but also more money on water and soap.
My challenge was to bake a Blueberry Cobbler, wash the dish and show you the results.
And of course, I couldn’t bake without sharing the recipe…
- 1 cup White Sugar
- 1 t. Baking Powder
- 3 c. Flour
- 1 c. Butter, cold and cut into pieces
- 1 Egg
- 1/4 t. Salt
- Zest and Juice of 1 Lemon
- 4 c. Fresh Blueberries
- 1/2 c. Sugar
- 4 t. Cornstarch
- In a small bowl, combine sugar, cornstarch and lemon juice, gently fold in blueberries and set aside.
- In a medium bowl, combine dry ingredients, sugar, flour, baking powder, salt and zest of lemon.
- Add egg and cold butter, cut into mixture with a fork or use food processor.
- Place blueberry mixture into dish and crumble with topping.
- Sprinkle with a dash of cinnamon/sugar mixture if desired.
- Bake at 375 degrees for about 45 minutes, depending on dish size.
Note: I adapted my recipe for [Blueberry Crumb Bars | http://hoosierhomemade.com/blueberry-crumb-bars/]. The recipe fits a 13 x9, the dish I used is actually about 6x6x3 . You will need to adjust cooking time, depending on your dish size.
