Easy Blackberry Cobbler with Brown Butter Topping



For the Filling:

4 cups fresh blackberries 🫐, kissed by the sun

1 cup granulated sugar, for that sweet embrace

2 tbsp cornstarch, the perfect thickener

Juice and zest of 1 lemon πŸ‹, for a zesty punch

For the Brown Butter Topping:

1/2 cup unsalted butter, to be transformed into golden magic

1 cup all-purpose flour, the canvas for our topping

2/3 cup granulated sugar, the sweet sprinkle

1 tsp baking powder, our rising star

A pinch of salt, to balance and enhance

3/4 cup milk πŸ₯›, for that soft touch

Steps to Culinary Bliss:

Berry Prep: In a mixing bowl, caress the blackberries with sugar, cornstarch, lemon juice, and zest. Let them mingle and set aside.

Golden Elixir: In a saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Continue cooking until it turns a golden brown hue, wafting a nutty aroma. Set aside.

Topping Time: In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Slowly stir in the milk until combined. Now, pour in the browned butter, blending until a smooth batter forms.

Assembly: Pour the blackberry mixture into a greased baking dish. Drizzle the brown butter batter over the berries, ensuring an even spread.

Bake to Perfection: In a preheated oven at 375°F (190°C), bake for 35-40 minutes. Look for a golden crust and bubbling berries.

Rest & Relish: Allow the cobbler to cool slightly. Serve warm, perhaps with a scoop of vanilla ice cream 🍨, and let the flavors transport you
