6-7 cups blackberries (or berry mix)

1 3/4 cups sugar + 5 Tbs. sugar (divided)

¾ cups flour

1 tsp. salt

Juice of one lemon

3 1/3 cups Bisquick

3/4 cup milk

3 Tbs. melted butter


Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Spray 9”x 9” baking dish or deep pie plate with non-stick cooking spray.


Mix berries with 1 ¾ cups sugar, flour, salt, and lemon juice.  Pour into the prepared baking dish.


Mix Bisquick, remaining 5 Tbs. sugar, milk and melted butter in a medium bowl.  Drop mixture in heaping spoonfuls on top of the berries.  Bake for 25-30 minutes until browned and bubbly.  Cut into the biscuit topping to make sure it is cooked through when you remove from the oven.  If not, put back in for 5 more minutes until fluffy to the berries!


Serve hot with vanilla ice cream on top.


This is one of my most favorite desserts!  It’s best if you can pick the berries fresh yourself which is a tradition I have loved in August on Block Island every summer since I was a little girl!
