Love black raspberries. My mom planted a few little sprigs a few summers ago, and now she has an abundance of berries. This past weekend when we were visiting, the berries were just beginning to turn. I picked two handfuls of ripe berries but ate them all before I shared them with the kids.
Before we left today, my mom went down and picked me a large bowl to bring home. This cobbler from Southern Living is super easy and quick if you have fresh berries.
Easy Blackberry Cobbler
4 cups fresh blackberries (or black raspberries)
1 tablespoon lemon juice (use fresh if you have it)
1 large egg
1 cup sugar
1 cup all-purpose flour
6 tablespoons butter, melted
Preheat oven to 375°. Place blackberries in a lightly greased 8-inch square baking dish; sprinkle with lemon juice. Stir together egg, sugar, and flour in a medium bowl until mixture resembles coarse meal. Sprinkle over fruit. Drizzle melted butter over topping. Bake at 375° for 35 minutes or until lightly browned and bubbly. Let stand 10 minutes. Serve warm with whipped cream, if desired. Garnish with fresh mint sprig, if desired.
