ANOTHER FARM TO TABLE FAVORITE!
These delicious berries were delivered to my backdoor by my father-n-law today. He's always thinking of us and bringing us delicious goodies. So I pondered "what shall I do with these beautiful blackberries - will I make jelly, a cobbler, or maybe try something different?" So I flipped though a couple of cookbooks and found this recipe for blackberry pudding - sounded DEEELISH!!! so I gave it a try. Well, just so you know - it was SOOOOOOO good and honestly, it's a lot like cobbler just with a slight difference. You must try it - add a scoop of vanilla ice cream and you'll have the perfect summertime dessert!
Here's all the "must knows" and "how tos"...
1/3 cup margarine
2 cups sugar
1 cup milk
2 cups flour, sifted
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 cups blackberries
Cream the margarine and 1 cup of the sugar in a mixing bowl until light and fluffy. Add the milk and a mixture of the flour, salt and baking powder, mix well. Pour into a buttered 3-quart baking pan. Layer the blackberries over the top. Drizzle a mixture of 2 cups boiling water and the remaining 1 cup sugar over the blackberries. Bake at 350 degrees for about 50 minutes or until top is golden brown. Yield: at least 12 servings.
