Try These Blackberry Desserts

by admin on April 7, 2010

Although blackberries are sometimes passed over as less tasty than blueberries and raspberries, their supermarket neighbors, they are just as delicious and nutritious .  All berries are rich in antioxidants, and the blackberry is not different.  They are often recommended as a treatment for diarrhea and mild infections.  Like other berries, they have been used in anti-aging treatments.  The ancient value in blueberries, though, is their rich flavor.  Blackberries make great desserts, from the classic to the unique.

A variety of blackberry desserts can be made easily at home.  Blackberry brownie cobbler combines the tartness of the berry with the sweetness of milk chocolate.

Ingredients:

1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup butter, cut into several pieces
1/2 cup pecans, chopped
4 cups fresh blackberries, sweetened and thickened
1 cup sugar
3 eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2/3 cup flour

Directions:

Heat oven to 350F.

Melt chocolate and butter together. Spray a 13×9 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. Pour berries in the bottom of the dish. Whisk together sugar, eggs and vanilla extract in a bowl. Whisk in melted chocolate. Stir in flour and nuts.

Pour the batter over the berries in the baking dish, smooth with spatula. Bake until a wooden pick inserted into center of brownie comes out clean, about 45 minutes. Let stand 15 minutes. Serve warm with whipped cream or ice cream.

A particularly unique blackberry dessert turns the berry into a soufflé.  This dessert could be a hit for date night!

Ingredients:

6 eggs, beaten
2 tablespoons water
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons brown sugar
2 ounces cream cheese, cut into eight 2 inch cubes
2 cups sliced blackberries

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Grease 8 ramekins. Beat together eggs, water, and salt.  Fill ramekins 2/3 full with egg mixture. Top each one with a cream cheese cube. Evenly sprinkle brown sugar on top of each ramekin.  Top each one with blackberries.  Bake 15 minutes or until brown sugar is melted and eggs are set.  Slide out of ramekins (if you want), dust with powdered sugar and the rest of the blackberries.
