Is there a better pairing for summer than blackberry and lemon? I was thinking of all the possibilities. You could do blackberry lemonade, blackberry and lemon popsicles or lemon blackberry cake. I've got a bit of a sweet tooth and nothing is better than cobbler or crisps this time of year (Okay, I lied, I also love strawberry rhubarb pie too).
I love this recipe because it's got both a sweet and tart flavor burst. It's just so yummy! Plus, as you're baking it, the delicious smell permeates the air and makes your mouth water.
