This berry cobbler with brown butter is so tasty and easy to make. The family will love it!


6 oz blackberries, rinsed
11 oz blueberries, rinsed
6 T sugar
2 T Jack Daniels or bourbon
Zest and juice of 1/2 of lemon
1/4 c fresh basil, chopped
1 stick unsalted butter
1 1/4 c unbleached all purpose flour
3/4 c white sugar
3/4 c brown sugar
1/2 t baking powder
1/2 t baking soda
Pinch of salt
1 c buttermilk
Zest and juice of 1/2 a lemon
Ice cream or whipped cream optional


Preheat oven to 350.
Mix all filling ingredients together in a large bowl. Reserve.
Melt butter in a flameproof 9 x 13 or 11 x 7 baking dish. Place the dish directly on burner over medium heat, stirring frequently, until butter is melted and deliciously brown. Your kitchen will smell heavenly, but don’t burn it. Remove from heat.
Stir flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt together in a bowl. Mix in the buttermilk and lemon zest and juice and pour the batter over the butter in baking dish. Don’t worry if the butter shows through in spots. Spoon the fruit over the batter.
Bake for about 45 minutes, until the crust has oozed up through the fruit and is golden brown and lightly raised. Serve warm, if possible!


1 13×9 pan or 1 11×7 pan. I used the smaller baking dish because I like a nice thick fruit and crust layer.
