Browned Butter Blackberry Cake

This summer we have had a ton of these:


Which has led us to blackberry sorbet, blackberry sauce, and finally blackberry cobbler. But, unfortunately I’m not a fan of the gooey fruity cobbler that we grew up with, I love a cakey cobbler. And that is how I discovered Brown Butter Blackberry Cake. I am not ashamed to say that this has been our go to weekend breakfast this month!



  • 1 Stick of butter
  • 3/4 cups of sugar
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1-2 cups washed blackberries (depending on preference)

To start melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat, stir occasionally to make sure that it is cooking evenly. As it darkens you are looking for it to turn a toasty brown color, be careful not to burn. When it has browned take it off the burner and poor into a separate bowl.

Next mix flour, salt, baking powder and sugar. Whisk in milk then add browned butter, whisk everything together and poor into a greased baking dish. Evenly sprinkle blackberries over the top. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour or until golden on top.
