Meme’s Blackberry Cobbler

Adapted from Bon Appetit, Y’all: Recipes and Stories from Three Generations of Southern Cooking

½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter

4 cups fresh blackberries

1 cup sugar

1 cup all-purpose flour

a pinch of salt

1 cup milk

1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 350°. In the oven, melt butter in a large cast-iron skillet or baking dish, 5-7 minutes.

Lightly mash berries in a bowl, adding a bit of sugar if tart. In another bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt. Add sugar, milk, and vanilla, then stir to blend. Remove skillet from oven and add melted butter to batter; stir to combine.  Pour batter into skillet, then add blackberries and their juice to the center of the batter.

Bake until golden brown (a toothpick or skewer inserted in the center should come out clean), about 1 hour. Serve warm or at room temperature, with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
