Blackberry Nirvana With Vanilla Cognac

READY IN: 40mins
YIELD: 1 cake




  • Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.
  • In a small bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt. Set the bowl aside.
  • In a medium bowl beat together 1/2 cup butter and the white sugar until well combined. Beat in the eggs until smooth. Stir in the vanilla cognac.
  • Into the cognac mixture, stir in the dry ingredients to make a batter.
  • In a large saute pan or skillet, melt the remaining butter over medium heat. Stir in the brown sugar and cook until the brown sugar dissolves and begins to simmer (bubble).
  • Add the blackberries, stir to coat, and cook 2 minutes.
  • Remove the pan from the heat. Spoon the batter over the blackberries.
  • Place in the oven and bake 30 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and let cool in the pan 10 minutes.
  • Being very careful, invert the pan (turn it over) onto a serving platter bigger than the pan (yes, you want the bottom to be the top). Let cool slightly before slicing and serving.
