This is my first blackberry season here in Washington state and I found the most perfect blackberry picking spot. I have gone out picking 4 times and now I have 4 gallons of frozen berries and 7 half pints of jam. We had a beautiful cobbler last night and I have 3/4 of a gallon in the refrigerator. I think I might have one a little overboard.

Here is the cobbler recipe I used. It was delightful served with vanilla ice cream.

Ingredients

1 stick Butter
1-1/4 cup Sugar
1 cup Flour
1 tsp Baking Powder
1 cup Milk
2 cups Blackberries (frozen Or Fresh)

Preparation Instructions

Melt butter in a microwavable dish. Pour 1 cup of sugar, flour and baking powder into a mixing bowl, whisking in milk. Mix well. Then, pour in melted butter and whisk it all well together. Butter a 9 X 13 baking dish.

Now rinse and pat dry the blackberries. Pour the batter into the buttered baking dish. Sprinkle blackberries over the top of the batter; distributing evenly. Sprinkle ¼ cup sugar over the top.

Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 1 hour, or until golden and bubbly. If you desire, sprinkle an additional teaspoon of sugar over the cobbler 10 minutes before it’s done.

Gone overboard?

No way! Fresh (or frozen) fruit is so good for you, why not eat it?

My wife just made us some yummy blueberry pancakes this morning with fresh frozen berries.

Enjoy your efforts!

Do you have a recipe you especially like? I've tried a number, and none has yet been exactly what I want.

I just followed my Mom's lead, Phil. She merely used Betty Crocker's Blueberry Muffin Mix (even comes with blueberries): https://www.alice.com/buy/1294840-betty-crocker-baking-mixes...

I did and do like splitting the muffin open and spreading 2 or even 3 pats of real butter on the inside. I wouldn't like them nearly as much w/o the butter.

Sorry, no big secrets.

I should add that I only bake the muffins ~15-20 minutes (or until tops spring back). Make sure to remember to sprinkle the sugar on top--it makes a big difference.

Thanks! I'll give it a whirl.

I've done the Betty Crocker mix Bob(?) mentioned. OK in a pinch, but not "the one."

Bob(?)

Well, I've been called more than a few things in my life, but that's what most people I know call me. My actual complete name is in my profile:
http://my.fool.com/profile/NoIDAtAll/info.aspx

A really close beautiful lady, both inside and out, from Taiwan that I've known for around 30 years seemed to have a bit of a hard time pronouncing my real name, Robert Folkerts. Somehow, the Os sounded like Us and she dropped the Ts, L and S. She once told me, "No way I gonna marwy YOU! No way I gonna be Mrs. ..., Rubber ...." Well, you probably get the picture... Bob works pretty well, though she mostly only used my nickname when she was trying to make a serious point with me.

She's really a pretty accomplished chef and restaurant owner. Reviews of her restaurant and her personality usually tend to be pretty high, especially when she prepares things not on typical American Chinese restaurant menus: https://plus.google.com/118306080685020804550/about?gl=us&am...
