This turned out amazing. I tweaked it slightly by stirring the sugar into the blackberries instead of sprinkling on top. I had no blackberry juice (who ever would?) so I just put milk in the blackberries to add the right amount of liquid. It’s the best cobbler I’ve ever had! Next time I’m adding cinnamon! Read More

Excellent non-traditional cobbler! Dough had a fluffy light consistency as opposed to the more traditional biscuit dough. However was still substantial enough to hold all the berries. Really good recipe, very simple and scalable (made 1 1/2 recipe). I used fresh blueberries and blackberries, and apple juice for the top liquid. Wonderful. Read More

Very tasty! I added 1 tsp. of cinnamon as others suggested. Will definitely make again. Need to look at the amount of sugar used to top it off as I think I used a bit too much. Read More

I've made a lot of cobblers over a lifetime and am always up for a new variations. My husband has been waiting for me to find one that was reminiscent of the cobblers his Grandma brought out to the fields with lunch during haying. This one finally hit it! He took one bite and said, that's the one...don't make any other recipes....keep this one. He did agree a bit of cinnamon would make the difference but even as is it's wonderful. Thank you for sharing! Read More

Absolutely delicious! Very forgiving if you don’t have blackberry juice. Just use milk. Delicious. I always double and family (5of is) ear every bit. Thank you for a great recipe that has less butter than my moms original recipe. Read More

I made this quick dessert last night using service berries. It turned out great and my guests loved it. I mixed the berries into the batter, and used muddled berries instead of berry juice. I put raw sugar on the top. I used a 8" pie plate instead of a rectangle dish. The texture was more of a cake. This dish would be even better "ala mode". The recipe is a keeper! Read More
