GRANDDAD'S BLACKBERRY BUCKLE (Adapted from bunsinmyoven)

When I was growing up, visiting my grandparents at our family cabin in North Carolina each summer, my grandfather would pick fresh blackberries and then prepare blackberry buckle that evening for dessert.  It was a treasured tradition that I remember fondly.  And…it’s perfect for the 4th of July!
1 stick butter
1 1/4 cup sugar
1 cup flour
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup milk
2 cups blackberries, rinsed and dried
2 TBSP sugar
Vanilla Bean Ice Cream, if desired

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Melt the butter in a microwave safe dish. Mix together the sugar, flour, baking powder, and salt in a large mixing bowl.
Whisk in the milk and melted butter, stirring until just incorporated. Butter a pie plate or similar sized baking dish. Pour the batter into the buttered dish, and then sprinkle the blackberries over the top.

Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of the sugar, and place in the oven for 40 minutes. Then sprinkle the top with the remaining tablespoon of sugar, and continue baking 15-20 minutes or until golden and bubbly. Top with ice cream if desired.
