Hey Everyone! Hope you all had a great holiday season. I know mine was crazy busy with having my kiddos home and lots of great family time. While a lot of you may be stuck in the cold, here in Central Florida, it is just about fresh berry and citrus season, one of my favorite times of the year. I’ve noticed recently that a lot of stores are starting to have more fresh berries on sale, so it’s time for me to dig out some of my recipes.
One of my favorite and easiest recipes is my homemade Blackberry Cobbler. I learned this recipe from my sister-in-law, who is super lucky to have a field of wild Blackberries right down the street from her house. She made this cobbler for us a few years ago, and it has become a favorite in my house.
For those of you that are “recipe followers” I apologize, as I am very much a “throw it all together and bake it” type of person. A lot of my recipes are old family recipes, with a lot of approximations. But I will do my best to list quantities whenever I can.
For this recipe you will need:
- a 9×13 baking dish, glass works fine, but you can also use a disposable pan for easier cleanup.
- 1 stick of butter
- 3/4 cup of milk
- 3/4 cup of flour
- 1 cup of sugar, set aside about 1/4 cup
- about 3 tbsp baking powder
- about 2-2 1/2 cups of fresh blackberries
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees, and melt the stick of butter directly in the pan. While the butter is melting, combine the flour, baking powder, 3/4 cup of sugar and milk. mix together well. A spoon works just fine, no need to bring out a mixer for this. It should be about the consistency of pancake batter.
Toss the fresh berries in the remaining 1/4 cup of sugar to coat them.
Once the butter is melted, carefully remove the pan from the oven. Pour the batter over the melted butter, but do not mix them together. The butter should pool around the batter mixture.
Spoon the sugar coated berries over the batter and press them down slightly.
These will bake in the oven for about 40 minutes, or until golden on top. I highly recommend placing a baking sheet under the pan, as these do bubble up and can spill over the top if too full.
Let the cobbler cool slightly, and serve with vanilla ice cream for maximum yumminess!
This recipe is so versatile, you can actually use whatever fruit you like. From Blackberries to Strawberries, even canned peaches work great, just make sure to drain the liquid first!
Thank you to my wonderful Sister-in Law JoAnne and Grandma Ann for this recipe!
