Kentucky Blackberry Cobbler

2 1/2 cup Fresh Blackberries, washed.
1 cup Sugar.
1 cup Flour.
2 teaspoons Baking Powder.
1/2 teaspoons Salt.
1 cup Milk.
1 Stick of unsalted butter.

First, you should take care of the blackberry and sugar mixture, Because it needs to sit for a while. Stir together, just the berries and the sugar in a large bowl and let it sit out for 25-30 minutes. This will coax out the juices of the berries so that they can be sweetened up by the sugar. And we can taste the full spectrum of the fruit. This process is called macerating.

After about 20 minutes, you should turn on the oven to about 375 and start preparing your batter.

Stir together the flour, baking powder, salt, and milk with a wooden spoon. Next, stir in the melted butter in, hand mix it in until the ingredients are well incorporated and you have few clumps.

Pick out a clean baking dish. A smaller one will do. Poor in the batter and smooth it out. You can choose to alignment. It with parchment paper or not, but do not grease the pan. (There is enough butter in there already!). Finally, pour the macerated blackberries on top with all sugar included and evenly distribute it over the batter.

Bake this promising pan of happiness in the oven for 45 minutes to an hour, depending on how golden you prefer it to be. Let it set up for a good 15 minutes. So it will hold its shape. It will be bubbling like crazy and quite hot, so be careful!

This hour goes a little like this: you can hear it bubbling through the vent behind the stove, you can smell the buttery dough caramelizing with the sugar, and you can see that dotted crown of blueberries creating that quintessential Golden cobbler crust. It is a marvel to have in your oven, let me tell you!

Serve warm or room temperature with warmed cream or fresh whipped cream.
You can store this at room temperature with foil over it for 2-3 days.
