Southern Blackberry Cobbler

Every Southern cook has a fruit cobbler recipe. They are pretty straightforward, mucho easy, and provide just the right amount of sweetness after a suppertime meal.

I had some big, sweet blackberries in the refrigerator, so I decided to make a blackberry cobbler Saturday night. Here's how it happened:

I washed and drained about 2 1/2 cups of the blackberries.
I melted one stick of butter in a casserole dish (in the microwave).

In a mixing bowl, I whisked together 1 cup self-rising flour, 1 cup sugar, and 1 cup of milk (I use almond milk).
Pour the flour mixture over the melted butter in the casserole dish, but don't mix!

It will look like this.
Last, add the blackberries, but do not mix!

The good thing about a cobbler is you can switch out the fruit based on what you have on hand. Apples are good, and so are peaches. Then all there is to do is bake for one hour at 350 degrees, or until golden brown on top. (The crust rises during baking).

It ain't pretty, but it sho' is good! Especially with vanilla bean ice cream.

Happy cooking,
