Ssshhhh....It's Not Chocolate!

I can usually forego dessert if it's not chocolate. But, nature has provided us with a bountiful supply of blackberries. Despite Mr. Chocolate's persistent cutting back of these ( much to my chagrin), each year we end up with "a bunch o berries". They don't ripen until later in the summer here so I was excited last night when I was able to pick these:
About 5 cups. Not enough to make any jam but certainly enough for a homemade cobbler! Actually I only used 3 cups for the cobbler and the rest are in the freezer, added to some from last year and awaiting future pickings from this year.


Super easy recipe:
Heat Oven to 350
Melt 1 stick butter ( yes, 1 stick....and I say Paula Deen's trying to kill me with butter) and pour on the bottom of a 12x12 pan ( or whatever you have that's close)
Mix:
1C Flour
1C Sugar
1 Tbsp Baking Powder
Pinch of Salt
2/3 C Milk

Pour on top of melted butter. Top w/ 3 C blackberries. Sprinkle with sugar. Bake 40-45 min until brown.



We had ours warm with Vanilla bean ice cream. Mmmmmm....Summer!

Oh, what a glorious thing (even if it doesn't have chocolate in it!) ... :)

Oh how I love blackberry cobbler! Yum! A trick with the butter... let it melt in the pan in the oven as the oven comes to temp. You can be mixing the rest of the ingedients while you wait!

We have found a farm nearby that let's you pick your own berries. We went 3 times this summer! I would love to grow some myself, but they don't seem to like my yard.

That was one of Grandmother's favorite things to make along with
peach cobbler. Many days spent there collecting the berries.

Melissa said...

I love, love, love fresh fruit. How nice for you to have these growing in your yard.

AmyK said...

Oh yum. I was just saying how I miss our old house for just one reason: the blackberries that grew in the back yard every summer. I even like the smell.

Lisa said...

MMMM! This looks yummy! I love blackberries! Can't you make chocolate covered blackberries? Might be kind of tricky, but I think it could work : )

Robin @ Blommi said...

Yum! I won't squeal on you. You could always have some chocolate with it in the side ;D

Jacqueline said...

I would suggest puddling a little chocolate on the serving plate! Fruit and chocolate and perfect accompaniaments. This looks wonderful and oh, blackberries, yum!

Lori said...

Yum-O! I really could go for a piece of chocolate right about now, though.....lol!

Yummy, yummy. The ice cream makes a perfect touch, and you ALMOST forget about being a chocoholic.
Enjoy.
