I made this cobbler the day Joe, Babygirl, and Jalen came home from vacation. I had just finished cleaning up the kitchen from dinner and sat down to browse through some of my fave blogs when I spotted this yummy on Abby’s blog, Confabulation in the Kitchen. Having just received three baggies filled with blackberries it didn’t take but a glance at her photos of Old Fashion Blackberry Cobbler before I hopped up and got to it. I’d never made a cobbler before… it’s so easy and so good! How come you guys never told me? Needless to say I see more of them in my future!
Old Fashion Blackberry Cobbler
2 C fresh blackberries
1 C sugar, divided into two 1/2 cups *
3/4 C AP flour
2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 C milk
1/2 C butter, melted
1. Preheat oven to 350.
2. Combine fruit and 1/2 cup sugar.
3. In a separate bowl, stir together the remaining 1/2 cup sugar, the flour, baking powder and milk.
4. Pour melted butter into a 1.5 quart casserole dish. Pour in milk mixture but do not stir. Add fruit, but do not stir. Bake 1 hour. Abby suggests topping your serving with ice cream, something about gilding the lily. I concur! :)
*The only thing I might change is to cut back on the sugar. My berries were quite sweet and didn’t need 1/2 cup of sugar. Before adding sugar to your berries I suggest you taste them first and use your best judgment.
My other thoughts on Abby’s recipe? She says she normally makes a peach and blackberry cobbler which leads me to believe you could get crazy with what fruits you use.
