Why I Love This Recipe
If you love blackberries like I do, you will love love love this recipe!
Ingredients You'll Need
1 cup all purpose flour (I used unbleached)
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1/3 cup half & half
1 tsp. vanilla extract
3 cups fresh blackberries (my mom will drive 3 hours to pick them fresh in the summer!)
1/3 cup granulated sugar (second amount)
1/3 cup all purpose flour (second amount)
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
4 Tbsp. unsalted butter, cold
1/8 tsp. salt (second amount)
In a small bowl, stir together the 1 cup flour, baking powder, and 1/4 tsp salt. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, beat together the butter and sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy.
Add in the egg and beat until smooth.
Next mix in the half & half and the vanilla.
Slowly add part of the flour and mix on low speed, then add more flour doing this 1/3 of flour mixture at a time.
Pour the batter into the greased dish and spread it evenly with your spatula.
Arrange the berries over the smoothed batter. No need to press them in.
In a bowl, combine the second amounts of sugar, flour, cinnamon, and salt. Cut in the cold butter using a pastry blender or your fingers to make a crumbly topping. Sprinkle evenly over the berries to create a topping.
Bake at 375 degree F for 35-40 minutes in an 8" X 8" pan. Place a cookie sheet with tin foil or parchment underneath the cake pan to prevent boil-over spills in your oven.
Remove from oven and let cool on wire rack for 15 minutes.
Serve hot or cold.
