Grab these 15 blackberry recipes for inspiration if you've been foraging in the hedgerows.  There's something to suit everybody from fabulous drinks to enjoy on a late summer's evening to savoury recipes as well as plenty of dessert and snack ideas for using blackberries.   

15 blackberry recipes that you need!

Beautiful, black, juicy, blackberries are seemingly on every hedgerow at the moment.  So if you've been foraging for some and are wondering what to make with blackberries then wonder no longer!  Today, with the help of some of my food blogging friends, I am sharing with you 15 brilliant blackberry recipes.

As good as a blackberry crumble is (and trust me I'd be the first in the queue for a portion of crumble with custard!), blackberries can be used in a host of different recipes that would be great from breakfast through to supper, as well as a little tipple at the end of the day!

  • This Blackberry Oaty Traybake from Lucy at Baking Queen 74 oozes blackberry juice and is packed with slow release energy courtesy of the oats making it perfect for breakfast.  But of course it would also be great sliced up for a late summer picnic or simply included in a lunch box for a delicious treat. 
  • Made with just 5 store cupboard ingredients this Blackberry Smoothie from Mabintu at Recipes from a Pantry is thick, creamy and makes a great breakfast snack.  As an added plus Mabintu shares suggestions for ingredient substitutions too.

  5. What a lovely round up of tasty blackberry recipes. I love seeing the fruits on bushes and having a cheeky nibble as I'm walking the dogs, but strangely don#t tend to cook with them so this is a great place to come for inspiration. Weirdly, blackberries are the only thing I have found that my dog won't eat! She likes the look of them but spits them out every time!
