Rated as 4.4 out of 5 Stars

"This recipe is similar to a cobbler, but we like it better. It's heavenly with a little ice cream on top! Great with blackberries, boysenberries, and tayberries."

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease an 8-inch baking pan.
  2. Mix blackberries, cinnamon, and lemon juice together in a bowl until coated. Pour into the prepared baking pan.
  3. Combine 3/4 cup sugar, flour, and baking powder together in a separate bowl; stir in milk and butter. Spoon batter over blackberry mixture, covering as much as possible.
  4. Stir remaining 3/4 cup sugar and cornstarch together in a bowl; stir in boiling water until sugar and cornstarch are dissolved. Pour mixture over berry mixture.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 45 to 50 minutes.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • You can use frozen berries instead of fresh.
  • I keep a frozen lemon in a resealable bag in the freezer. When a recipe calls for a small amount of lemon juice, I grate some of this lemon and use that - peel and all.

I have made this many times and it has always turned out good! It tends to come out a little runny, but I like the juiciness in the biscuit part. I now use a Truvia baking blend to sweeten it, a...

I liked the flavor of the dessert but it was entirely too runny. If I make it again I will probably toss my berries in flour first. I may also use more cornstarch. That may help it thicken some....

I thought it was a little sweet, will cut back 1/2 cup of sugar next time also would use two tablespoons of cornstarch to make a thicker syrup. Used fresh berries thought t was really good!
