MONDAY RECIPE POST - BLACKBERRY COBBLER


Looking for a dessert recently, I came across this one at a food blog called Real Housemoms, hosted by Aubrey.  I chose it because they are baked in individual ramekins.  I also wanted to try freezing a couple for another day.
I bought the blackberries first to eat as a snack, but there is another person in this household to take care of, and I thought he would prefer a dessert. Searching through several recipes online, this seemed to be just what we needed.

Blackberry Cobbler

Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooling time: 45 minutes
Total time: 50 minutes
Servings: 6
Calories: 369

1 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
1/2 cup butter, melted
2 teaspoons vanilla
3/4 cup sugar, divided
3 cups blackberries

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a medium bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, salt and 1/2 cup sugar.

Pour in the milk, butter and vanilla, and stir to combine.

In a smaller bowl toss blackberries with the remaining 1/4 cup sugar.

Evenly divide berries into 6 ramekins.

Cover berries with an equal amount of the milk and flour batter.

Place ramekins on a baking sheet and put into the oven for 40 to 45 minutes, until the topping is golden brown and blackberries are bubbling.
Take out and let cool for about ten minutes, or however long it it needs so that you don't burn your mouth on those hot blackberries.  I prefer mine warm but my sweet other half said it tastes great straight out of the refrigerator.

We topped it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, but whipped cream or English Custard (Crème Anglais as you might see it on restaurant menus), or even Clotted Cream would be good choices.  

I found a recipe for Crème Anglais if you would like to give it a try.

I didn't change much to this recipe.  I didn't have an entire set of six small ramekins.  I used four of the next size up, and had to cook the larger individual cobblers for a few minutes longer.  

Also the larger ramekin contained more than enough for two servings.

If you don't have any ramekins, I'm sure a small baking dish would do just as well.  

Next time I would like to use more blackberries. 

I put the remaining cobblers in the freezer.  

It was delicious and has become another keeper.

Enjoy!

  2. Oh yumm. I don’t have any ramekins though, sad to say. I almost never bake any more, but I’ve been thinking about dessert lately (in normal times, I’d indulge that occasional craving at a favorite restaurant, but not now of course.). Anyway...a fruit cobbler would be a good thing to bake ... not too sugary, so Bill could eat some. Thanks for the good idea\reminder!

    1. Thanks Sallie and you are very welcome :) I thought next time I could put it in a small baking dish if there were more of us. This fitted Gregg's taste to a 'T' as it wasn't too sugary.

  8. oooooh this sounds so good!! it is better to bake a recipe that a trusted friend has tried and you can bake with confidence. i also enjoy reading the adjustments the baker made or would make, next time around!!

    1. Hi Debbie, I feel the same way and I hope if you make this you will enjoy :) Yes, it took me longer than 5 minutes. Perhaps I should have added that ;)

  12. Sounds delicious! I'll try this recipe.

  13. I have only made peach or apple cobblers, but this one looked wonderful, Denise. Unfortunately I am the only person in this household who eats feeds like blackberries and raspberries but not too often. My other half prefers strawberries. We both agree on blueberries so perhaps those might be good in a future cobbler.

    1. Both sound delicious Dorothy. This would go great with blueberries, and I am sure with strawberries :)

  14. I have many happy memories of blackberry picking as a child. Your cobbler sure looks wonderful. My Mama always made a Blackberry Roll with our booty.

    1. Me too Martha Ellen, whenever we went out into the countryside we picked wild blackberries from the hedgerows. We ate them in my Mum's blackberry pies, or on their own, sprinkled with a little sugar and topped with cream :)
