How can you pass by the packets of blackberries when they sell two for just 99 cents? I regret that I only purchased 4 of them. I made a batch of very easy blackberry cobbler with them just to celebrate a bargain.
This easy blackberry cobbler is very EASY, as title says. You don’t need to cut in cold butter into tiny pieces to blend-in with flour. All you need to do is just to pour over one ingredient after another. This blackberry cobbler will be easiest cobbler you can make and, perhaps, the tastiest one, too.
Rinse your blackberries with water and sprinkle a little bit of corn starch to coat. This will help thicken the fruit juice during the baking.
MELT THE BUTTER IN THE OVEN
I left my baking pan with chunks of butter in the oven as I was preheating. Your butter will melt beautifully in the oven.
THE QUICK BATTER – DO NOT STIR
Mix all the batter ingredients.
And pour the batter evenly over the melted butter. DO NOT STIR at this stage.
Add the blackberries and bake for 35 minutes at preheated 350˚F oven.
THE FINAL TOUCH – SUGAR
Take the baking pan our of the oven and sprinkle sugar on top. Continue to bake 10 more minutes. This will make crusty crust.
SERVE WITH VANILLA ICE CREAM
Is there anything better than a bowl of warm cobber with cold vanilla ice cream? Nah~!
It is my kind of sweet finale that I would take any day of the week. Blackberries are great to make cobbler with. With this easy blackberry cobbler recipe, you get to enjoy the fruit of your labor with hardly any effort. That’s a very good thing if you ask me.
