Blackberry Cobbler + a Giveaway!

If you remember from two Mondays ago, I wrote about our weekend and how we went blueberry picking. You can read it here if you havent already! I mentioned how we live 5 minutes from the country which means we get the please of going to the farm and getting to pick all sorts of things.

This past Saturday my mom, grandmother and I took an impromptu drive down to the farm to pick blackberries! My mom and grandmother are big fans. Me though, not so much! I think they have too much of a sweet/bitterness to them. We got a good amount and they were big! My mom searched on pinterest for a nice easy recipe and came up with this one. I tried some and it was actually really good. I would choose an apple crisp over it, though, any day but it was good and I'd have it again.

  • 4 cups fresh blackberries
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted
  • Whipped cream (optional)
  • Garnish: fresh mint sprig

  1. Preheat oven to 375°
  2. Place blackberries in a lightly greased 8-inch square baking dish; sprinkle with lemon juice
  3. Stir together egg, sugar, and flour in a medium bowl until mixture resembles coarse meal. Sprinkle over fruit.
  4. Drizzle melted butter over topping.
  5. Bake at 375° for 35 minutes or until lightly browned and bubbly.
  6. Let stand 10 minutes
  7. Serve warm with whipped cream, if desired
  8. Enjoy!
