Blackberry cobbler.

When we think of summer desserts, blackberry cobbler is the first on our mind… Top it off with vanilla ice cream…. well we are in heaven. Although  I am and I am sure I am not alone,  getting excited for fall and back to our routine, there is always time to enjoy a slice of blackberry cobbler.

Loads of sweet tender blackberries with sugar, cardamom and orange peel. Each bite is filled with sinful sweetness. What a better way to end the summer!!! Easy to make and easier to enjoy this is the perfect dessert to bring to any end of summer parties.

The sweet blackberries are slowly cooked in Lodge cast iron skillet, the best in my book for this recipe.

The top crumble is sweet, tender and tasty. You cannot stop just eating a slice or large spoonful, or in the case of my family, the slice is a quarter of the skillet. I have very sweet tooth family, can you tell.

Enjoy every bite!
