Blackberry Spoon Cake

There are great deals on blackberries this week at the store, and I couldn't resist!  I surveyed a few cobbler recipes and made up this one based on the time I had and the ingredients that sounded the was fantastic!  It was moist like bread pudding with lots of fruit and just the right amount of sweet!  Next time I might add some oats.  And oh so easy!

Blackberry Spoon Cake
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup milk
1/2 cup butter (melted)
3+ cups of blackberries (or mixed berries) fresh or frozen

Preheat oven to 350.
Mix flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in a large bowl with a whisk.  Whisk in milk & melted butter.  Pour mixture into a 9x9 greased baking pan.  Drop berries evenly over the top, taking care to spread them completely to the edges of the pan (so they don't just end up in the middle of the cake!).  Bake for 1 hour until golden brown.  

Serves 8

We ate ours with little scoops of ice cream (of course!).   Everyone at dinner loved it.  G-Bear asked for seconds.
