Sweet Treat Tuesday-Blackberry Cobbler

Sweet treat Tuesday is back! I hope you all enjoyed your holiday weekend! We had a great time here in Tennessee. It was actually pretty relaxing. We also didn't celebrate the 4th until Monday. We had a BBQ that night and did a whole lot of swimming. For dessert, I made a blackberry cobbler with all of the blackberries my boys and I picked on Friday. It turned out really great. If you don't like blackberries, this may be a recipe for you! They are still quite seedy, but not as much as eating them by themselves. This is also a VERY easy recipe. You could easily substitute any fruit, I think I may try it out with something else very soon, maybe even peaches!!
Blackberry Cobbler
from Pioneer Woman

Ingredients:
1 stick Butter
1-¼ cup Sugar
1 cup Self-Rising Flour
1 cup Milk
2 cups Blackberries (frozen Or Fresh)

Directions:
Melt butter in a microwavable. Pour 1 cup of sugar and flour into a mixing bowl, whisking in milk. Mix well. Then, pour in melted butter and whisk it all well together. Butter a 8x8 baking dish. (I originally used a 11x13, do yourself a favor and use a smaller dish!) Rinse and pat dry the blackberries. Pour the batter into the buttered baking dish. Sprinkle blackberries over the top of the batter; distributing evenly. Sprinkle ¼ cup sugar over the top.

Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 45 min-1 hour, or until golden and bubbly. This is so yummy when served warm and with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

I made my cobbler in the morning and didn't serve it until that night. We placed the cobbler in a warm oven for a few minutes to warm it up and then served it with vanilla ice cream. YUM!!

Yummy and easy! I just bought some FRESH raspberries....maybe I'll make a Raspberry Cobbler instead of Blackberry :-)

I tried this recipe and did not have as good of luck. It did not seem to cook for me. I cooked it for an hour longer than it said and it was still nearly raw in the center. I'm not sure if adding to much sugar will cause that to happen or not. I accidentally added all the sugar at once that the recipe called for instead of sprinkling some on as she suggests later in the recipe directions. Stunk that I wasted all those fresh blackberries. Glad it worked for you though...maybe I will try it again someday.

Sonya,
I'm so sorry that this didn't work out for you!! What a waste! Did you use a smaller dish instead of the 11x13? I know I suggested using a smaller one, but maybe having a larger dish would make it not as thick and cook better. I remember it being not too "cakey." You know I wonder if using my peach cobbler cake recipe with blackberries would be better? I have thought about other fruits to use in that recipe, it is really easy too. Let me know what size dish you used so others can know too!

This reminds me a lot of the recipe for peach cobbler I got from my great-grandmother. It looks yummy!
