One of the fondest memories of my childhood was picking blackberries with my Grandfather. My Grandmother would tell us that eating fresh blackberry cobbler on the day of the Blessings Moon was good luck and would ensure a bountiful harvest in the coming months.
I would like to share the recipe for Grandmother's Blackberry Cobbler that is easy and tastes great.
You will need:
2 1/2 cups fresh blackberries (do not use blueberries)2/3 cup sugar1 cup all-purpose flour2 teaspoons baking powder1/2 teaspoon salt1 cup milk1/2 cup (one stick) butter, melted
In medium bowl, stir together blackberries and sugar. Let stand for 20 minutes until fruit syrup forms. Heat oven to 375 degrees.
In larger bowl stir together flour, baking powder, salt and milk. Then stir in melted butter until well blended. Pour into ungreased 8-inch square pan. Spoon blackberry mixture over batter.
Bake 45 to 55 minutes until dough rises and is golden brown. Serve warm with a scoop of ice cream (vanilla works best.)
While you are eating your cobbler, visualize the Blessings that you wish to manifest in your life. Know that these Blessings or something better will come to you as the summer comes to a close and the autumn draws near.
At this time of the year you may hear the distant sound of thunder alerting of a coming rain to quench the garden and cool off the hot days of July. May the Blessings Moon find your life full of Love, Light and Laughter.
Wishing you the Brightest of Blessings as we celebrate the Summer,
