DSC05485A July favorite at the cabin! Sweet fresh blackberries baked in a sweet, scrumptious batter, so easy to make, the batter is made in a cast iron skillet and the berries dropped on top, then just bake! Serve warm with vanilla ice cream! This is yet another delicious reason to get a cast iron skillet!

  • 1 cup of sugar
