Blackberry Cobbler

This is a great way to use fresh summer fruits and berries

10-inch deep dish pie plate, greased
Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C)
Serves 8

1/2 cup margarine (such as Earth Balance), melted
5 cups fresh blackberries
1 cup granulated sugar, divided
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
3/4 cup soymilk, or other non-dairy milk
Ground cinnamon, optional

1. In a medium bowl, toss the berries with 1/4 cup of sugar.
2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and remaining sugar. Add the milk and melted butter, whisking to combine.
3. Scrape the batter into prepared baking dish. Place berries on top (don’t stir, as the batter will rise to the top as it bakes). If desired, sprinkle top of cobbler lightly with ground cinnamon.
4. Bake cobbler in preheated oven for 45 minutes, or until top of crust is golden brown and firm to the touch. Let cobbler cool on a rack before serving.

Tip: This cobbler is best served within a few hours of baking.
