Here's what you'll need:

  • 4 cups fresh blackberries
  • 1 cup sugar (divided)
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons butter (cold and cut into small pieces)
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • Optional: Vanilla ice cream for serving

Step-by-Step Instructions

1. Preheat the Oven

Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Lightly grease a baking dish to prepare it for the cobbler.

2. Prepare the Blackberries

Rinse the blackberries thoroughly and pat them dry with a paper towel. Arrange them evenly in the prepared baking dish and sprinkle 1/2 cup of sugar over the top.

3. Make the Cobbler Topping

In a mixing bowl, combine:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Using a pastry cutter or your fingers, cut in 6 tablespoons of cold butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

4. Add the Milk

Stir in 3/4 cup of milk until just combined. Be careful not to over-mix, as this can make the topping dense.

5. Assemble & Bake

Spoon the batter over the blackberries in the baking dish, spreading it out as evenly as possible. Place the dish in the oven and bake for 45-50 minutes, or until the topping is golden brown and the blackberries are bubbling.

Serving Suggestions and Tips

Cool Before Serving

Allow the cobbler to cool for 10-15 minutes before serving. This gives the filling time to set and makes it easier to serve.

Add a Scoop of Ice Cream

For a delicious contrast of warm and cold, serve your blackberry cobbler with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Experiment with Other Fruits

This cobbler recipe is versatile. You can substitute blackberries with other fruits like peaches, blueberries, or raspberries for a different twist.
