Easy Blackberry Cobbler

Easy Blackberry Cobbler. Oh, so easy. I’m not a baker of extraordinary capabilities, this I tell you frankly and freely. It comes from a lack of actual baking as well as knowing that what I bake will be consumed by Handsome Dude and moi. That’s a lot of calories and if it’s in the house it’s goin’ in my mouth. So. This Easy Blackberry Cobbler is dreamy because it’s delicious — it takes care of these gigantic, tasty berries — and –it is easy.

It’s the kind of easy I think will go well on Facebook live. We’ll see.

We’ll see.

Let’s talk about the berries.

The blackberries growing on the vines in our backyard are huge.

Huge and plentiful.

[Which is all kinds of wondrous and delicious.]

We’ve eaten them plain, with ice cream, with whipping cream, and plain, again. They’ve been gifted and gifted and then eaten some more. We’ve even frozen them aaaand we still have bunches and bunches. We’re not tired of them, by any stretch of the imagination — it’s just that they don’t stay yummy indefinitely. Which brings us to the point of the post where we start talking about easy.

‘Easy’ as in simple, straightforward, and uncomplicated.

A friend posted a link on my Facebook page to a recipe for an easy Blackberry Cobbler. [Thank you, Erica.] I pinned the recipe and tested it.

I tested and then tasted it.

It’s delicious. Here’s the original recipe and here’s what went down when I put it together.

Easy Blackberry Cobbler

Here’s what you’ll need:

— a stick of butter [minus just enough cut off of the end to butter the pie pan]

— 1 cup plus 3 Tbsp sugar

— 1 cup of of self-rising flour
[If you don’t have self-rising flour simply whisk 1 1/2 tsp of baking powder and a pinch of salt into 1 cup of flour.]

— 1 cup of milk
[I used skim because that’s what we had.]

— 2 generous cups of blackberries, rinsed and patted dry

That’s it. Five ingredients. Five.

Here’s what you do.

Preheat the oven to 350.

Melt the butter. Set it aside.

Pour 1 cup of sugar into a medium bowl.

If you don’t happen to have any self-rising flour on hand, try this.

How to make Self-Rising Flour

1 cup flour

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

Disperse the ingredients uniformly with a whisk or a fork.

Whisk 1 cup of milk into the flour and sugar mix.

Pour the melted butter into the bowl as you whisk everything.

[Take a whisk once in awhile or whisk it all but whisk it well.]

Butter your baking dish with that end piece of butter you cut off of the original 1/2 stick of butter.

[I used a 9″ pie dish.]

Did I mention that this was an easy Blackberry Cobbler?

Pour the batter into your buttered baking dish.

As an added bonus, your house will smell divine.

When it’s done, serve it by the big spoonfuls with whipping cream or vanilla ice cream or with cream poured over the top.

[On a side note here, Handsome Dude decided that he wanted to have ice cream with the cobbler. He came home with the treat in the form of Haagan-Dazs Vanilla Milk Chocolate Almond Bars, it made me smile.]

It works.

So delicious.

I berry strongly recommend you give it a try.

Because it’s berry good and berry easy.
