This week, two things happened, that I am convinced were not simply a coincidence, but Fate!
Normally, when I am walking through the produce aisle, and I see fresh berries on sale 10 for $10, I grab, well, 10! I don't remember the post, but it was about prepping smoothies for the morning a weeks worth at a time, so that's what I usually do. I'll share this with you in another post.
Onto the story; my lovely friend, LL (Lori Leigh) posted this about blackberries! It brought back memories of when my family would go camping up to Northern California, close to the Oregon border. I was about 8, and I remember my dad always liked to stop at the side of the road for a break from driving, to let my mom take me and my brother wild blackberry picking. She wanted the blackberries, to make blackberry pancakes with blackberry syrup. As you can imagine, we started picking them, and for every one I saved for my mom, I ate 3 or 4 or maybe more. They were so sweet, and it was a fun break from the long drive for us!
For those of you that read my blog, know I love peach cobbler the most, but in second comes fresh berries; strawberries, blueberries, blackberries! With them being on sale, I couldn't resist making a Blackberry Cobbler.
As I am searching for recipes, and I am still a little confused on the difference between what constitutes a baked good being called a cobbler, slump, or a buckle?? This article helped clear things up a little, so I hope what I am sharing with you, is a cobbler, if not it will be delicious either way!
Blackberry-Cinnamon Cobbler (adapted from Epicurious)
2 cups fresh blackberries or 16 oz. frozen

1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 Tbls. cornstartch
1 Tbls. fresh lemon juice
1/3 cup sugar
1 cup self- rising flour
1 cup whole milk
1/2 cup butter melted
2 Tbls. sugar
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
Whipped cream or Ice Cream
1. Preheat oven to 350F. Toss the blackberriesin the sugar, cinnamon, cornstartch, and lemon juice. Let stand 10 minutes. Place berries into a buttered baking dish.
2. Whisk together the sugar, flour, and milk. Add melted butter. Spoon over berries.
3. Combine sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle over batter. Bake for 1 hour, until golden brown and bubbly. Set aside for 15 minutes to cool slightly! Serve warm cobbler with a scoop of ice cream or top with fresh whipped cream!
As always, I saved a plate for you!
Until next time!
