Place two layers of blackberries over bottom of an 8" or 9" round pan. Sprinkle 1/2 Cup sugar ever berries and a dash of salt. dot with butter and sprinkle on some vanilla.
In mixing bowl, beat 1 egg. Add 2/3 Cup sugar and beat well. Mix in 2/3 Cup flour, 2/3 tsp. baking powder and a dash of salt. Drop batter by spoonfuls over berries. Bake 10 minutes at 425, then 20 minutes at 350. May be served as is or with cream.
Note: Both of these are old family favorites - especially when made by Grandmothers. They can be made as low fat desserts and not really lose anything. We usually make the no-crust pie as we like it a little better but I prefer the name "crunch".
