Thanks to my mother and father in law I was able to make a gorgeous blackberry cobbler. If you have never had it, you really should! It is so delicious, especially with wild blackberries. They have a particular tang that just can’t be found in domesticated berries.
When I took the first bite, I was almost unable to speak. The flavor just exploded over my taste buds. This is the essence of all that is good about rural home cooking.
- 1 1/2 cup self rising flour
- 1 1/2 cup milk
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 5 tbsp butter
- 4 1/2 cups of wild blackberries
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a medium saucepan, combine the berries, about 1/2 cup of sugar, and 2 tbsp water. Heat until there are about 5 cups of fruit and juices. Melt butter in a 9×13 glass dish in the oven. In a bowl, combine the flour and sugar. Stir in the milk. Pour batter into the hot butter. Gently spoon the fruit and juices over the batter. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until the edges are golden brown. Serve warm and maybe with ice cream. Serves 8.
