Blackberry Cobbler

This recipe came from Lauren Alaina (American Idol runner-up and big new country star from nearby {to me} Rossville, GA).  It is her grandmother's recipe and do you want to talk about easy?!!!!  This can't be beat.  The batter goes on the bottom, blackberries on top, and then it just all bubbles up together. 

Sorry my ice cream wasn't was frozen rock-solid so I couldn't get the pretty round scoop to show off this show-stopper.  But it still melted wonderfully to add a creaminess to the warm cobbler.


2 1/2 cups fresh or 12 oz bag frozen blackberries
1 cup sugar
1 cup AP flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp table salt
1 cup milk
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
whipped cream or ice cream

Heat oven to 375F.  Stir together blackberries and sugar in a medium bowl (if using frozen berries, thaw them in a sieve over a bowl to catch the juice).  Let stand about 20 minutes or until fruit syrup forms.

Whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, and milk in another medium bowl.  Stir in melted butter until blended.  Spread batter in an ungreased 8" square baking pan.  Spoon blackberry mixture over batter.  Sprinkle with cinnamon.

Bake for 45 minutes (40 minutes in a NuWave) or until puffed and golden.  Serve warm with whipped cream or ice cream.  Sprinkle with additional ground cinnamon, if desired.
