I think a cherry or berry pie is one of my all time favorite desserts. And a simple version of either one of those is even better! And I love a good cobbler crust. I've always called this particular kind of crust a "pour crust" because you, well, you pour it over the fruit. This cobbler would work well with almost any kind of fruit. I used frozen blackberries but peaches would be scrumptious, too. Give it a try for a quick and easy weeknight dessert.
Super Simple Blackberry Cobbler
1 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
1/2 cup heavy cream
3 cups fresh or frozen blackberries
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 tablespoon sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 8x8 inch pan with cooking spray.
In a bowl, mix together the flour, 1/2 cup of sugar, baking powder, salt, milk, melted butter, and cream until smooth.
In a medium bowl, mix berries with 1/4 cup of sugar.
Spread the blackberries into your prepared pan.
Spread batter on top of berries. Sprinkle the top of the batter with the nutmeg and 1 tablespoon of sugar.
Bake until the top is lightly browned, about an hour.
Allow to cool before serving. Serve with ice cream or sweetened whipped cream.
