Blackberry Buckle - TSLC

This recipe is more like a cake than a cobbler.  The topping makes a design that may be where it gets its name. We love this dessert with ice cream or whipped cream.  In fact, we love blackberries any way you fix them!

3/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup milk
2 teaspoons vanilla flavoring
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 cups fresh blackberries (You could use canned, too)

1/2 cup butter or margarine or 1 stick
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Cream butter, sugar and eggs with mixer.  Add rest of the ingredients except blackberries and mix well.  Spray a 9 x 13 inch baking dish and spread flour mixture in the bottom of the dish.  Spread blackberries on top of the flour mixture.
Mix together topping ingredients in a bowl except for butter.  Sprinkle topping over blackberries.  Cut the butter into pieces or pats and spread over the topping. (See photo).  Cook in preheated 375 degree oven for 40 – 45 minutes until brown on top.  Makes 8 to 10 servings.  Enjoy!
