The other day I walked into the grocery store to quickly grab something – I don’t remember what. On my way to get whatever it was, I saw a sign for blackberries – $1/pint. At first I didn’t believe it, but I went and checked it out and it was for real. Then I assumed that they were probably rotten, but they weren’t. My lucky day! Even though I didn’t come for blackberries, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to stock up on one of my favorite early summer fruits. With one of the pints, I made this very easy and delicious blackberry cobbler. Even Josue, who doesn’t normally like blackberries, loved it. The recipe can be adapted for any fruit; I’ve made it with peaches, pears, and blueberries. It’s also great for entertaining because you probably have all the ingredients on hand and it goes together quickly.
Blackberry Cobbler with Browned Butter
- 1 stick butter
- 1 cup flour
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 ½ t. baking powder
- 1 cup milk
- 1 pint blackberries
Preheat the oven to 350. Place a stick of butter into a 9 x 13 pan. Heat the butter in the oven until it’s melted and lightly browned, about 10 minutes. While the butter is melting, mix the flour, sugar and baking powder in a medium bowl. Whisk in the milk. Once you remove the pan from the oven, pour the batter into the pan, but don’t mix. Sprinkle the blackberries over top of the batter. Bake the cobbler for 30-35 minutes, until a toothpick insert into the center comes out clean and the cobbler is lightly browned on top.
