Blackberry Buckle for Two

Servings 2 people


  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2-1/2 tbsp butter
  • 3/4 cup blackberries
  • 1 tsp sugar


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Put butter in a 6" cast iron skillet or similar size baking dish in oven to allow butter to melt.
  • Place blackberries in small bowl, sprinkle with the 1 tsp of sugar and gently stir to mix. Set aside.
  • Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Stir in milk until fully incorporated, do not over mix. A few lumps are ok.
  • Once oven is heated and butter is melted, remove skillet from oven. Pour batter mix into the center of the skillet/baking dish, letting it flow to the outer edges. Use spoon to gently even out the distribution of batter as needed.
  • Spoon blackberries over top of batter, leaving a ring of batter around the outside edge.
  • Bake about 40 minutes, check after 30 minutes. It should be firm, not wet looking, but spongy to the touch. If not, check every 5 minutes until desired doneness.
