My mom brought me a gallon size bag of huge blackberries!
They were begging to be made into something yummy.
And Preston loves him some baked goods...
We chose a Blueberry Buckle Coffeecake out of my "Iowa Master Farm Homemakers" cookbook.
You know the recipes are good when they come from a bunch of farm wives!
I made a few changes to the original recipe and we love how it turned out.
BlackBerry Buckle Coffeecake
1/2 cup butter (I used 1/2 cup homemade applesauce)
3/4 cup sugar
2 cups flour
2 1/2 t baking powder
1/2 cup milk
2 cups fresh blackberries (or any type of berries)
1/4 cup turbanado sugar (or just sugar)
Grease bottom and sides of 9 inch pan.
Beat together butter (or applesauce) and 3/4 cup sugar until fluffy.
Add egg and beat well.
Mix 2 cups flour with baking powder, stir in alternately with milk.
Beat until smooth.
Spoon into prepared pan.
Sprinkle with berries.
Sprinkle with sugar.
Bake at 350 for 45-50 minutes.
