I drove back from Memphis the other day and had to stop at a berry farm…. was so excited that blackberries are coming in. I bought a bunch of them…. a couple of quarts thinking it was high time for blackberry cobbler and it really was! I had to get my grandmom’s blackberry cobbler recipe too!
When I was a kid, my siblings and I would go to work with our mom in the summer now and then. Although it was sometimes just for a change of venue, we frequently went thinking about how many blackberries we could pick. And we’d have dreams of cobbler with dinner. Mom would make grandmom’s easy blackberry cobbler — she’s also called it a lazy pie at times.
Being single, I rarely cook desserts but knowing I have a nephew around to eat lots of it, I decided full steam ahead! Got the last few things at the grocery Saturday so Sunday I got to making a couple — one for our house and another for friends. Here’s the recipe (according to mom & sisters).
- 1 stick butter
- 1 cup flour
- 1 cup sugar
- 2/3 cup of milk
- 1 Tablespoon of baking powder
- 2 cups of blackberries (or peaches or whatever!)
- Melt a stick of butter in a brownie pan (9×9 or 8×8).
- Mix flour, sugar, baking powder & milk).
- Pour mixture on top of melted butter.
- Pour in two cups of berries.
- Cook at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

In May, one of the work trips I went on was the Food Wine Conference. One of the sessions I attended was “Moving Pictures: Video Workshop” sponsored by the Beef Checkoff. The team from Chez Us did a great job showing us how to take the fast-paced video tutorials that I see all the time in my Facebook feed. We made a yummy grilled steak salad and shot the video and we talked through editing.
I decided to finally flex those video skills I picked up before I forgot what they told me. Hope you like this! (And for friends who don’t think I could have actually cooked this, my nephew was home at the time and you can see my rings in the video.)
