Ok, I am an addict. A real life, bonafide addict. (How do you spell bonafide?) Anyway, I love berries and lemon. For real. I looooove, lurve, luf, berries and lemon. I’ll take them sweet, savory or a little bit of both. Kind of like this lemon strawberry shortcake, or these raspberry BBQ sliders (which are both crazy delicious). Don’t get me wrong, I love chocolate and savory things as well, like this inside out fried mozzarella pepperoni pizza, and there’s a whole list of other things I obsess over like Chef in Training’s SymphonyChocolate Bites (which by the way are the perfect snack for a movie theater- not that I’d ever sneak food in…) But berries, berries are my love. Especially in cobbler form.
Let’s get real for a moment, I almost didn’t post this recipe, because it turned out so stinking delicious I didn’t want to wait to take pictures, but I couldn’t hold back something as delicious as sweet blackberries paired with a lemony, tender, wonderful cobbler. I think I just drooled a little.
This is a recipe most of you are probably familiar with, and I totally grew up with. But my mom always made it in a dutch oven when we were camping and used a yellow cake mix. Since I cannot convince my husband to go tent camping I have to settle for the ol’ oven, but the fact that I switched the vanilla cake for a lemon one totally makes up for the camping disappointment. Seriously, it’s bright, warm, fresh, glorious, and amazing.
Plus, my sweet little one helped me make it and that always makes everything wonderful. Yes, she’s in her jammies, and sucking berry off her top lip, and sitting on the table That’s how we roll.
