  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 4 cups fresh blackberries
  • 1 cup sugar, plus more for sprinkling
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • Pinch of fine sea salt
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon sanding sugar
  • Creme fraiche, whipped cream, or ice cream, for serving


  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  2. Step 2

    Melt butter in a 10-inch enameled cast-iron skillet over medium heat.

  3. Step 3

    Meanwhile, place blackberries in a large bowl. Using a potato masher, mash blackberries to release their juices. If blackberries are tart, sprinkle with sugar.

  4. Step 4

    In another large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt. Add sugar, milk, and vanilla extract; mix until well combined. Add melted butter to flour mixture; stir to combine. Pour mixture into skillet and add blackberries and their juices into the center. Sprinkle with sanding sugar.

  5. Step 5

    Transfer skillet to oven and bake until top is golden brown and a cake tester inserted into the batter comes out clean, about 1 hour. Serve warm or at room temperature with creme fraiche, whipped cream, or ice cream.
