The Classic Blackberry Cobbler

Miniature ramekins can be located from fine cook stores. Fill them with crushed berries then hold on the pan up to two hours before baking, if desired. Serve them warm from the oven for the best flavor. Scoop small dollops of ice cream & portion it over the desserts just before serving. Look to Baking Classics: Blackberry Cobbler for pointers & photos that detail the instructions for preparing the recipe.

makes 12 tasting servings 

1 {6-oz} container fresh blackberries
1/4 cup plus 1 Tbsp sugar
2 tsp fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp cornstarch
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup whole buttermilk
2 Tbsp melted butter
Premium vanilla bean ice cream

 Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Crush the blackberries with a fork to help release some of the juices in a medium bowl. Add 1 tablespoon of sugar & the lemon juice stirring well to combine. Sprinkle the cornstarch over the fruit. Fold it into the mixture until blended. Portion the fruit between 12 lightly greased 1-oz ramekins. Whisk together the flour, the remaining 1/4 cup sugar & the baking powder in a small bowl. Whisk in the buttermilk & the butter until a smooth cake batter forms. Portion the mixture over the berries in the ramekins. A very small spring release disher works well. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until the top is golden brown & the filling is bubbly around the sides of each ramekin. Serve warm with vanilla bean ice cream.
