Blackberry Cobbler {Recipe}

My older sister has a 60 acre farm and orchard.  I’ve been helping her with her Farmer’s Market booth once a week, and it’s fun for us to work together.  In addition to enjoying the time with my sister, another big perk of the job is free produce!  Gorgeous, hand picked, pesticide-free produce!!  Last week this is what I came home with….

As I was driving home with my loot I started thinking about what I might make with the gorgeous produce.   Of course desserts always rule in my mind, so I narrowed in on these beauties…

I settled on the idea of using the blackberries and peaches to make a yummy cobbler   I searched my cookbooks for a recipe and found several very similar options.  I had a few ideas of my own as well, so I made a few adjustments along the way.  The base recipe I used came from Fix It and Enjoy It, by Phyllis Pellman Good.

Blackberry Cobbler

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter

1 cup flour

1 cup milk (any fat content)

1 cup sugar (plus 2 Tablespoons later)

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/4 teaspoon salt

2-3 cups fresh blackberries*

1/2 cup sliced almonds (1/4 cup in batter, 1/4 cup on top) optional, but delicious!

*I used blackberries and peaches, but next time I think I’ll just use blackberries.

 ~ Directions ~

1.  Preheat oven to 350*F

2.  Grease a baking dish (I used a deep dish pie pan, but you could also use a 9″ x 13″ baking dish)

3.  Melt butter in a large bowl.  Add the flour, milk, 1 cup sugar, baking powder, vanilla, salt and 1/4 cup almonds.  Stir well. Pour into prepared baking dish.

4.  Arrange fruit on top of batter.  Sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup sliced almonds and 2 Tablespoons of sugar on top.

Bake 40-55 minutes or until lightly browned.

The finished cobbler has a homey, country appearance.  It may not be the fanciest dessert ever made, but it sure is delicious!

Top with vanilla ice cream, and you’ve got a winning combo… warm cobbler, cold ice cream… yum!!

Excuse me while I go get a spoon….

  14. We picked a ton of blackberries at my parents house over the holiday weekend and I just made this! It smells delicious! Just a comment…you have 1 cup milk down in the ingredients list, but it isn't mentioned in the recipe. I assumed it was mixed in with the flour, sugar, etc…but almost missed it! Thanks for the recipe!
