Perfect Whole Wheat Blackberry Cobbler

We are up to our noses in blackberries around here. So, we’re freezing some for the fall and winter months (so I actually have a supply of it this time), eating it in our yogurt, popping a few in our mouths every now and again, and baking with them. Fortunately, we going blackberry picking again this weekend so we get to repeat the process all over again. Hooray! And you know what that means…more blackberry cobbler!

I can’t wait until we go pick more blackberries because I swear those things are so freaking scrumptious! For this recipe, you only need five ingredients: whole wheat flour, unrefined pure cane sugar, whole milk, butter, and, of course, blackberries! Don’t you just love five ingredient recipes?

The recipe calls for 2 cups of blackberries, but really, you can use however much you want. I just sprinkled them on there until I felt satisfied. The blackberries help give it the “cobblestone” street look.

I didn’t make my own vanilla ice cream simply because I do not own an ice cream maker quite yet, but if you’re interested in making your own vanilla yogurt, I found a great recipe here.

    We made this and enjoyed it with friends tonight. It was delicious! We milled hard red winter wheat berries for the flour, and used fresh North Carolina blueberries from a local farm. Thank you for the recipe!
