Best Blackberry Cobbler EVER!

So I was going tell you about my amazing weekend but I will just cut to the chase and tell you that I made the best Blackberry Cobbler I have ever eaten on Sunday.  The best part was that is was SO EASY to make.  My neighbor who happens to be one of the best chef's in Nashville was highly impressed.  He actually picked fresh blackberries on Saturday morning which I am sure made it that much better!

I must tell you I didn't make this recipe up.  Edley's BBQ partnered with the Georgia Peach Truck last week and served up some amazing dishes.  I had Peach Cobbler and I don't even like Peach Cobbler but OMG it was unreal.  We found the recipe online and that is what I used, subbing blackberries of course.  Stay tuned for a blog about peaches later this week!

Without further adieu, 

The Best Blackberry Cobbler EVER!

1 Stick of Butter
1 Cup Self-Rising Flour 
(if all you have is all-purpose flour just add 1 1/4 tsp of baking powder and 1/4 tsp of salt)
1 Cup Sugar
1 Cup Milk 
(I used Skim but I am sure you can use whatever kind you like)
1 Tsp Vanilla
4 Cups Blackberries (or peaches)

Preheat Oven to 350.  Place entire stick of butter in an 8x8 square Pyrex dish and let melt in oven as it heats up.  In the meantime mix flour, sugar, milk and vanilla.  I mixed until there were no lumps.  As I was measuring out the blackberries I sprinkled sugar over them and let them set for a few minutes since blackberries are a little more tart than peaches.  I used about a tablespoon of sugar for that but totally optional.  After the butter has completely melted pour flour mixture on top of butter. DO NOT MIX. Spoon fruit on top of flour mixture, DO NOT MIX.  Place in oven for 40 minutes until top is golden brown.  It will be really hard to even leave it in there that long because your entire house will smell AMAZING!  Let sit until bubbling stops.  Be careful because it will be very hot.  Serve with vanilla bean ice cream!
