Mom's Cooking

photo from

I love the show Mom's Cooking on Lifetime TV. It is so quirky. It is interesting to see the traditions that different families come up with and the family relationships. The host, Joe Corsano, is funny and respectful to the moms. Sometimes I see a recipe that I want to remember and make again and again. Sometimes I want to say, "No! That is not the right way to do it!" 

Here is a recipe I am anxious to try. I have always seen these Oregon Blackberries in the store and wanted to do something with them. My grandmother used to put up blackberries back in Oklahoma. This is an easy and delicious sounding recipe and the perfect way to use the new cast iron skillet that I got for myself at Christmas.

Blackberry Cobbler
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 cup self-rising flour
  • 1 1/2 cans blackberries
  • 2 cans blackberry juice
  • Note: I need to watch the video again, but I think she just used 2 cans of blackberries and the juice from the berries. That is what I plan to use.
  1. Mix flour and sugar until well-blended. Pour in 1 cup cold milk and mix to make batter.
  2. Heat skillet on medium high, then melt butter.
  3. Pour batter into cast-iron skillet.
  4. Pour blackberries and juice into middle of pan; do not stir.
  5. Bake for 40 minutes at 425 degrees.
I'll let you know how it comes out!
