  • Toss the blackberries with 1 1/4 cups sugar and 1 1/2 tablespoons flour in a mixing bowl. Spread into a 9x9-inch baking dish, and dot with 1 1/2 tablespoons of butter. In a separate bowl, whisk 1 1/2 cups flour together with baking powder, salt, and 2 tablespoons sugar. Cut in the softened butter until the mixture resembles cornmeal. Stir in the milk and egg until combined. Drop the batter over the berries by the spoonful.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the fruit is tender and the topping is golden brown, 20 to 30 minutes.

This cobbler was exquisite. It has the perfect biscuit top layer, and the overall taste was just spot-on. I've tried other cobbler recipes on here trying to find the "ultimate" cobbler recipe, and this is definitely #1 to me. Read More

Sorry but this did not turn out good. I followed the recipe without any changes including using a 9x9 pan. It baked for at least 30 minutes and the "biscuits" were still doughy underneath. The berries were absolute soup with no thickening at all. I won't be making this recipe again. Read More

Very delicious! I'm not sure if the berries should have set up more or not but it didn't matter. We had it warm with ice cream and it was heavenly. Read More

EXCELLENT!! My family loves blackberry cobbler and when I made this they all flipped. I altered it slightly - we used fresh blackberries and then reduced the sugar by 1/2 that you put on the blackberries and added 1 tsp. cinnamon. Yum!! Read More

Best flavor of any blackberry cobbler I have ever make and I have made many. Will be my go to recipe. I took some of the liquid while the recipe was still hot before it cooled and set and drizzled it on top. Pretty and tasty! Read More

I have been looking for a "biscuit" type cobbler and this is a winner. I did make a few changes that I think helped the overall taste. I used fresh blackberries (they are everywhere right now!) and used only a 1/2 cup of sugar and upped the flour to 3 tbsp or as much as it needs to look "thick". Everything else was the same. It turned out not too sweet with the perfect amount of biscuit. Yum! MAKE THIS if you like a more savory topping for your cobbler! Read More
