Melt butter in 8- or 9-inch skillet over medium heat.

Cook 5 minutes more, then remove from heat. Cream shortening and remaining 1 cup white sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Sift together dry ingredients and add alternately with combined milk and vanilla to creamed mixture. Blend well, but do not overbeat. Pour batter over blackberry mixture in skillet.
