Ever since my husband and I went strawberry picking in May, we’ve been waiting for Chesterfield Berry Farm’s blackberry season.
We picked blackberries for the first time last year, and we had a blast. We also had a lot of berries! I used some of them to make a Blackberry dump cake, or blackberry cobbler. My family kept calling it “cobbler,” so that’s what it is to me, though really, it’s a lot like a dump cake, because you just dump the ingredients into the pan.
This was a favorite at our house; I hope it’ll be a favorite at yours too.
You’ve been warned: This recipe is super simple (kind of like that strawberry pie recipe I posted).
Simple Blackberry Cobbler
3 cups fresh blackberries, washed and well-drained
2 tablespoons sugar (optional)
1 box yellow cake mix
Butter or margarine
Coat the inside of a 9" x 13" glass baking dish with cooking spray, and cover the bottom of the dish with blackberries. Sprinkle a little sugar on top of the berries, if desired. Then dump yellow cake mix on top, and smooth it out. Put butter or margarine shavings on top (like this):
Bake at 350º for about 30 minutes or until golden brown. Feel free to serve with a generous dollop of whipped cream, ice cream or nondairy whipped topping!
