Although the recipe calls for frozen blackberries, you could use fresh berries if you have them available. When my children and I go blackberry picking, this is one of the first recipes I make each year. I use about 1-1 1/2 cups of fresh berries. Recipe found on the net.

This might be a duplicate review but didn't look like my first review made it through submit. Great recipe - follow it exactly (well, I did add a little more blackberry topping!) It was awesome and had perfect flavor. Thanks! Made for PAC '08.
