I have such fond memories of blackberry picking with my mum. About this time every year, we would be going up and down the berry bushes looking for the ripe ones and getting constantly pricked. But things have changed and while I still get picked I make tasty desserts with them instead of jam…
10 – Cobbler – crazyhorsesghost.hubpages.com/hub/Homemade-Blackberry-Cobbler
A Cobbler is supposed to have a biscuit topping, and this one doesn’t seem to have one. Still worth including though.
9 – Shortbread – uk.pinterest.com/theworldstop10
Picture the scene: A lazy Sunday afternoon, a hot cup of tea or coffee and someone brings out a tray of these for you to try. Enough daydreaming let’s get making!
8 – Hot Milk Cake – www.littlemisscelebration.com/2014/05/28/hot-milk-cake-blackberries-cream
I have never heard of a hot milk cake before today, but whatever it is I really need a slice of it in my life.
7 – Bread – www.walnuts.org/cooking-with-walnuts/recipes/walnut-blackberry-quick-bread
A large slice of this some cream and a cup of tea would go down rather lovely.
6 – Cheesecake Bits – happyfoodhealthylife.com/2013/09/20/mini-lowfat-blackberry-cheesecake-bites
Small, tasty and you can make this quickly and easily. Now you just have to make enough for everyone!
5 – Popsicles – selfproclaimedfoodie.com/blackberry-cream-popsicles
Even this time of year a popsicle can be a delicious and healthy treat so why not make them with seasonal blackberries!
4 – Roulade – www.womanandhome.com/recipes/532466/blackberry-roulad
There is always room on my dessert trolly for a Roulade, but this one would have to take centre place.
3 – Marshmallow Cubes – www.melangery.com/2015/01/blackberry-marshmallow-no-corn-syrup.html
Soft & tasty and that’s just the blackberries! So imagine that same taste inside a marshmallow cube.
2 – Creams – www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/3102/blackberry-honey-creams
This simple recipe has a lot to offer on taste, plus it looks amazing!
1 – Frozen Yogurt – www.kitchencorners.com/2009/08/creamy-blackberry-frozen-yogurt.html
It might be the wrong time of year for frozen yoghurt, but I thought it looked so nice I just had to include it.
