The Blacker the Berry, The Sweeter the Juice

I went home for a few days and lucky me, the blackberries were ripe. So I decided to make what is one of the easiest and yummiest dishes to make in the summer, cobbler. Blackberries and cobbler are one of those things that really make me think of summer. My mom calls this "magic cobbler". Probably because it's super easy to make!

First, admire the nice ripe berries. Yum. 

Next, pick the berries. You will need 4-8 cups. 

Wash the berries. Nobody wants to eat those weird little hairs!

Magic Cobbler:

1 cube of butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup Bisquick
2 cups milk
4 cups fruit (this is also really good with peaches)

 Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

In a 9 x 13 pan, melt the cube of butter. 

Mix the sugar, Bisquick and milk together. It may be a little lumpy, but that’s okay. 

Pour the batter into the buttered pan. 
Pour the blackberries (or whatever fruit you want) into the batter.
Don't worry, they will sink a little as it cooks!

Bake 35 - 45 minutes until brown. 

Serve with vanilla ice cream. 

A couple of notes: I added about a half a cup of oatmeal to mine, which gave it a bit more robustness. I also added about 6 cups of fruit, which didn't make it too soggy or too tart. 


Do you have a favorite summer recipe to share?

  2. Yum! That looks delish and if I used almond milk, earth balance 'butter', and my gf bisquick, I could eat this! :) Woo hoo!

    I think my fave recipe of the summer was that green bean salad I made when the 'first family' came to visit. Ha. It was so easy but a great summer dish.

  3. I love blackberries so that looks amazing! I recently posted the recipe for a summer salad I'm currently obsessed with - prosciutto, arugula and parmesan.

  4. I'm going apple and raspberry picking in a couple of weeks. I'm SO bookmarking this recipe!

  5. Yummy is all I have to say!
