Blackberries abound in fields and alongside country roads in late summer around here. It's fun to pick them, especially when we know this dessert will be the result.

"This was really yummy and really easy. I cut it in half for just my husband and I, and I think there were about 3 servings. I did sprinkle the blackberries with a little sugar like others suggested, and I do think that helped with the bitterness. Instead of apple juice I used white grape. I agree that it's not like a traditional cobbler, it's more cakey. Still quite delicious though, and a good quick recipe for when we have leftover blackberries."

"Very yummy!! Super easy too. I couldn't find just raspberry juice, I could only find Raspberry/Cranberry juice and used that. It came out great!"

"This was very good...I had fresh tart time I think I will add a little sugar to the berries...sprinkled sugar on top on the last 5 mins and it helped out a lot with the tartness."

"Very yummy and satisified the blackberry cravings we all were experiencing! Used a cran/grape juice instead of the ones listed and we doubled the recipe."

"Super easy to make, my family LOVED it! It's more of a cake batter than pie, but that just gave it a nice twist. I threw this together while making supper."

"Wonderful recipe and so simple to make! This can easily be prepared before dinner, and bake while you prepare your main meal. I've served it several times for company. Everyone loves the crust, and I've had numerous requests for the recipe. Even my father-in-law, famous in the family for his blackberry cobbler, has adopted this recipe. You can't go wrong with this dish!"
