I love blackberries! Well, it's not a secret, I love most fruit, but there is something about berries I find irresistible. There is a refined and exquisite  quality about the Southern tradition of picking blackberries amidst the summer sunshine; skin aglow and heart skipping a beat! Imagine a young Southern boy, sitting beside his grandpa underneath a large oak tree, enjoying a freshly baked slice of blackberry cobbler. The warmth and comfort which this dessert brings is maximized by its ease; and it can even be enjoyed for breakfast. (I know I'm not the only one who loves a dessert for a breakfast treat!) It can be accompanied by hot coffee throughout the year.

Freshly picked blackberries! (Who could resist?)

Here is the simple recipe I learned and keep safe in my kitchen! (Shhh)

Line an eight-inch baking pan with 2 tablespoons of melted butter, mixed with 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract, a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and 1 tablespoon of sprinkled flour, (preferably self-rising flour).

Add 2 cups of fresh blackberries so that the pan is covered; then set aside.

 Next, heat the oven to 375 degrees.

In a large bowl, mix 2 cups of flour, 1 ½ cups of sugar, 5 melted tablespoons of butter and 1 cup of cold milk until smooth. Cover this bowl and set aside for ten minutes.

Next, pour the batter over the berries in the pan and top with 2 tablespoons of cinnamon and sugar.

Pop the pan into the oven for approximately twenty to twenty-five minutes; or until golden brown. Voila!

This is a perfect recipe for a family dessert, an office surprise, a birthday gift or a hospital token of appreciation. Feel free to serve it warm or cold; it fulfills an appetite a la mode with vanilla ice cream as well. Whether it’s frosty from fall into winter, or sunny in summer, it will promise to satisfy and warm the soul.
