When I asked TG (the girlfriend) if she liked blackberry cobbler, she said that she normally didn't like cooked fruit.
Back to the blackberries. I went through some cookbooks and settled on a recipe in my Southern Living cookbook that Mimi bought for me years ago. It's the 1986 annual recipes book. I love this cookbook! I use it every Christmas for my peanut blossom cookies, among other yummy dishes. The original recipe calls for blueberries, but I substituted blackberries.
Huckle-Buckle Blueberry (Blackberry)
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar, divided
1 2/3 flour, divided
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups fresh berries
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon (I only used 1/4 tsp)
1/4 cup butter
Cream softened butter; gradually add 1/2 cup sugar, beating well. Add egg; beat well.
Combine 1 1/3 cup flour, baking powder, and salt; add to the creamed mixture alternately with milk, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Mix well after each addition. Stir in vanilla.
Pour batter into greased 8 inch square baking pan. Top with berries.
Combine remaining 1/2 cup sugar, remaining 1/3 cup flour, and cinnamon. Cut 1/4 cup butter into mixture with a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse meal. Sprinkle over berries.
Bake at 375 for 45-50 minutes.
We had vanilla ice cream on the side and I think even GF enjoyed it. ;)
*This obviously wasn't the cobbler that I originally thought I would make. It was more like a coffee cake...a very moist and delicious coffee cake.
