  • Fruit:
  • 4 cups of fresh blackberries rinsed well
  • 6-8 tbsp white sugar more or less, depending on the sweetness of the berries
  • Zest from 1 lemon
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1-1½ tsp cornstarch
  • Biscuit Topping:
  • 3 tbsp white sugar
  • 1 vanilla bean split down the center lengthwise and seeds scraped out with knife
  • 1 cup of flour
  • tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 4 tbsp butter diced
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 egg beaten


  • Toss the blackberries with the sugar, lemon zest, lemon juice, and corn starch. Mix gently until evenly coated; set aside for about 30 minutes to allow the berries to macerate and release their juices while also allowing the sugar to dissolve.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with tin foil, for easier clean up. Coat 8 small ramekins or 4 large ramekins with coconut oil cooking spray and place them on the prepared baking sheet.
  • Combine the white sugar with the extracted vanilla bean seeds with your fingers until well combined.
  • Make the biscuit dough by combining the flour, vanilla sugar, baking powder, and salt together; whisk until well combined. Cut the butter into the flour mixture using your fingers until the mixture resembles course crumbs.
  • Make a well in the center of the dough then add the milk and beaten egg. Mix until just combined.
  • Stir the blackberries really well then divide them evenly between the ramekins.
  • Drop spoonfuls of biscuit dough evenly on top of the berry filled ramekins.
  • Place into the oven and bake for 30 minutes, or until the topping is golden brown. Remove from the oven and cool. Serve with ice cream, whipped cream, or plain! Enjoy.
