For the filling:

  • 6 cups blackberries
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • Zest of one lemon
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

For the topping:

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk, at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9x13-inch pan or 12-inch cast iron skillet and set aside.

  • In medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the milk, melted butter, and vanilla.
