blackberry cobbler

No time for a pie? Make a cobbler instead. Fresh blackberries from by brother-in-laws backyard. Delicious HUGH fresh blackberries make the best summer time dessert. Best when served warm and topped with vanilla ice cream!

blackberries

Ingredients:
For the filling:
5 cups whole berries
2 cups flour
1-1/2 cups sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup buttermilk
1/3 cup melted butter
For the topping: (makes a shiny top) 
1-1/2 cups sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup boiling water

sugar

Directions:
1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat bottom and sides of a 9- by 13-inch baking dish with nonstick spray. Make an even layer of berries in the bottom of the dish. (I had to add extra sugar on the berries because they were tame)

2) Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, milk and butter and blend into a batter. Spread  batter evenly over the fruit. The batter will be thick.
