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!
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.
