Blackberry Cobbler

My man is a baker. He whips up desserts/muffins/cookies/breads/cobblers in the time it takes me to polish off a Dr. Pepper (about 5 minutes.)

He just ‘threw together’ this blackberry cobbler the other day. If you liked the Strawberry Shortcake from last week, you're going to like this post. Same song … second verse.

A few key differences … you bake the blackberries until they turn into tender, juicy sugar bombs. Then drop the biscuit dough on top and bake into a crispy-heaven-crust. Serve with a heap of vanilla ice cream, and pretend it's not over 100 degrees outside.

Blackberry Cobbler

  • 6 cups blackberries
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon flour

Mix about berries, sugar and flour in a large baking pan. Bake at 375 for 30 min. (Test it to make sure the berries are sweet enough for your taste)

For the biscuits:

  • 1.5 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 Tablespoon of sugar (I usually add more ;)
  • 1/2 stick of butter (cold, unsalted)
  • 1 Cup buttermilk

Mix everything together except the butter. Once it is mixed properly, use a cheese grater to make little pea-sized chunks of the cold hard butter. Mix these chunks into the mix. Drop large spoonfuls of biscuit mix on top of the cooked berries. Sprinkle some more sugar on top for fun and bake for about 20 min. Serve with vanilla ice cream.
