Black Raspberry Cobbler

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.

There's nothing like fresh picked berries. That cobble looks great!

I once lived in a house where the black raspberries grew wild. The canes so thick you couldn't even get to them all. It didn't matter, because what you could get to was enough. It's the only thing I miss about that house.
