I love this time of year; berry season! Especially, blackberries.
April-May is blackberry picking time! Have you ever eaten blackberry cobbler?
It is one of my family’s all-time favorite treats! So simple to make and so easy to eat!
Go berry pickin’, and see for yourself what fun it is!
When you get home with your fresh berries, wash them really good 2-3 times and then try this amazing cobbler: (the printable recipe is below)
First, preheat your oven to 350. Then, add a little sugar to your berries and set them aside while you make the batter.
Second, add sugar, flour, and baking soda to a mixing bowl.
To get the exact amount of flour, scoop & level.
That means, scoop, or spoon flour into measuring cup until it is heaping (piled up high) and then level with back of butter knife.
Level, starting near your thumb, by sliding knife across top of measuring cup. The extra flour will fall off the sides, giving you a perfect measured amount of flour!
now add it to the bowl,
then add the baking powder and stir it and mix it really good.
Melt butter in your baking dish
Now it’s time to pour the batter you just made into the baking dish. Pour it right on top of the butter and don’t worry about stirring it. Just pour it in the middle.
Here come the berries! Lay (don’t stir!) the berries on top of the batter. Just like this:
Here are a couple of my favorites!
Have fun and let us know if you make this cobbler!
