A few days ago I went out blackberry picking. I decided to make a roll with some of the berries I picked.
I found a recipe for black berry roll on this website: http://southernfood.about.com/od/berries/r/bl50617c.htm
I modified the recipe as usual and came up with my own version. Here it is.
2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp white sugar
¼ cup olive oil margarine
¾ cup skim milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
A few shakes cinnamon
1 ½ cups fresh or frozen cut up blackberries
A few shakes white sugar
1 tsp rum extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a large bowl combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and 1 tbsp white sugar. Mix well. Now add the milk and vanilla extract. Mix and knead until a soft dough forms. Roll out the dough on parchment paper into a large rectangle. In a bowl add the blackberries. Pour the rum extract over the blackberries and mix well. Spoon the blackberry mixture onto the rolled out dough. Sprinkle with a few shakes of white sugar, and a few shakes on cinnamon. Roll up into a roll (around the parchment paper). Bake for 25 to 30 minutes.
Serve warm with frozen yogurt or ice cream.
The roll turned out really well. The only thing I would change about the recipe is to use a bit more sugar in the dough (maybe 3 tbsp instead of 1).
I think this recipe would be great for anyone who has diabetes since it has almost no sugar in it (aside from the natural sugar in the blackberries).
The blackberry roll is super yummy served warm with vanilla frozen yogurt.
