    Prep Time 10 minutes
    Cook Time 30 minutes

    • 3 tablespoons butter, divided
    • 1/3 cup sugar, divided
    • 1/2 teaspoon lime zest
    • 1 cup blackberries
    • 1/2 cup flour
    • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1/3 cup milk


    1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
