  • 1 egg
  • 1 2/3 cup milk

  6. Add egg and mix until combined. 
  7. With the mixer on low speed, add 1/3 of the flour mixture, followed by 1/2 of the milk mixture. Repeat with another 1/3 of flour mixture, remaining 1/2 of milk mixture, and rest of flour mixture. Mix until combined. 
  8. Stir in reserved blackberry juice. Make sure to scrape to the bottom of the bowl so that all of the batter is colored.
