I was lucky enough to find a huge package of blackberries for ninety nine cents on the marked down produce rack at the grocery store. This recipe from Southern Living jumped out at me because it had such rave reviews and is made with so few ingredients. Whisk the batter, sprinkle with blackberries and sugar and in one hour you have a homemade, mouth watering dutch oven desert. In my 10 inch oven it baked with 10 coals in a ring around the bottom, 16 around the edge of the lid and 6 evenly spaced in the center. Once I put the coals on, I didn't even lift the lid to check it and in exactly 60 minutes it was perfectly browned, bubbling and ready for a big scoopful of vanilla ice cream. If you're new to dutch oven cooking give this cobbler a try, it's pretty much foolproof and everyone will think you're a seasoned outdoor chef.
