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.
