Blackberry Buckle - The Southern Lady Cooks

Blackberry Buckle is more like a cake than a cobbler.  The topping makes a design that may be where it gets its name. We love this blackberry buckle with ice cream or whipped cream.  In fact, we love blackberries any way you fix them! Try this blackberry buckle when having friends and family over for a great dessert anytime. If you love blackberries you will love these blackberry recipes.

Ingredients needed for Blackberry Buckle
