Blackberry Cobbler


This is a staple around our house as far as desserts go. It is VERY simple, and uses very few ingredients.

I have to apologize for the quality of these photos....I had a setting off in my camera, so they were not very clear, but I didn't know it until I looked at the pictures on the computer.

First, butter a small baking dish, about 9x9 or similar. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Now, in a bowl, place about 2 1/2 cup blackberries. These can be fresh or frozen. Mine were some wild blackberries I picked and froze.


Sprinkle about 1/2 cup sugar all over them, and let them sit.


In another bowl, put 1 cup all-purpose flour


1/2 teaspoon salt


2 teaspoons baking powder...and stir it together.


Now pour in 1 stick (1/2 cup) melted butter


And 1 cup milk.


Stir it together with a fork until well-mixed. Batter will still be a little lumpy.


Spread it into the baking pan.


Now sprinkle the sugar-coated blackberries all over the top.


And bake it for 45-55 minutes, or until the cake part is golden brown, and done in the center.

Serve with ice cream.


Enjoy!

I'm not a fan of cobbler, but my son loves it.

I'm stopping by from SITS to welcome you to the group.
