1 1/2 teaspoons
milk, or as needed
butter, cut into small chunks
I loved the basic concept of this cake but the ingredient amounts are way off for a 9x13 pan. I had to double the milk to get a reasonable batter and I also doubled the blackberries. Still a very thin cake - I'd make it again but in a 9x9 pan. The topping is lovely.
The other reviewer was right, the proportions for this were WAY off! however, with a few altercations if is FABULOUS!! I used an 8.5x11 inch pan, and there's no way 1 cup of blackberries would be enough for even that. I used two medium tubs (12oz apiece) of blackberries, which means I also doubled the sugar (it's still early in the season though, so my berries were still pretty tart; it needed it) mixed with them. The bottom "crust" batter was very thick, almost pastelike, even though I added about 3/4 cup of milk. It was still delicious though, just saying, you WILL need more than 1/4 cup of milk. I also like a lot of crumble so I doubled the oats and brown sugar mixture. The bottom dough wasn't even close to done at 30 minutes, so I had to put it back in for another 20 minutes. I think next time I'll try it at 375 or maybe even 400, as the top wasn't very crispy, either. I shaved a cold stick of butter to lay on top of the crumble. Now, that is a lot of altercations, but it made a hearty cobbler and the taste was PHENOMENAL! I especially like the addition of oats, which makes it more crumbly instead of cakey, like some of the other recipes I'd looked at. We ate it with scoops of ice cream. It's pretty rich, so I wouldn't serve yourself too much, although it's tempting! :) Enjoy! I added a picture since there was none (white bowl with a scoop of ice cream added).
This is an awesome recipe! I increased the milk to 1/2 cup and used a 9x9 pan.
