While blackberries are cooking, whisk together flour, remaining ½ cup sugar, baking powder and salt in large bowl. Slowly blend in milk and vanilla and mix until batter is smooth. Place butter (sliced into equal pieces) in 9x 13” baking dish and place in preheated oven 2 minutes to melt butter. Remove dish from oven and tilt so butter evenly coats bottom. Slowly pour batter over melted butter. Gently spoon berries and syrup evenly over batter without stirring.
