Blackberry Fruit Cobbler Recipe

My grandmother made this cobbler when I was a little girl I can still remember the fun we had first picking blackberries together in the hills. Blackberries are my favorite filling, but this cobbler can also be made with apples.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 1 hour YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, divided
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar, divided
  • 1 cup water
  • 1-1/2 cups self-rising flour
  • 1/3 cup milk, room temperature
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen blackberries
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Directions

  • 1. In a 10-in. round or oval baking dish, melt 1/2 cup butter; set aside. In a saucepan, heat 1 cup sugar and water until sugar is dissolved; set aside.
  • 2. Place flour in a bowl; cut in remaining butter until mixture resembles fine crumbs. Add milk, stirring with a fork until dough leaves sides of bowl.
  • 3. Turn out onto a floured surface; knead three or four times. Roll into an 11-in. x 9-in. rectangle. Spread berries over dough; sprinkle with cinnamon. Roll up, jelly-roll style. Cut into 1/4-in. slices. Carefully place slices in baking dish. Pour sugar syrup around slices (syrup will be absorbed).
  • 4. Bake at 350° for 45 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining sugar; bake 15 minutes longer. Serve warm or cold. Yield: 8 servings.
Editor's Note: As a substitute for 1-1/2 cups self-rising flour, place 2-1/4 teaspoons baking powder and 3/4 teaspoon salt in a measuring cup. Add all-purpose flour to measure 1 cup. Combine with an additional 1/2 cup all-purpose flour.

"I tried this recipe because it sounded the most like my grandmothers. It turned out not only beautiful but tastes absolutely wonderful!! My Aunt is a cook and she loved it; so I am now on my 10th cobbler! I am not a cook and thought it was fun, my 13 yr old daughter & friend loved helping roll up the cobbler. Audrey (13) even made one by herself! Highly recommend!"

"I knew that my husband liked the results of this recipe when after the first bite he asked, "Now, you saved this recipe didn't you?""

"Best blackberry cobbler I've ever made! First time I made it with wild berries & it was tricky to roll it like a jellyroll--little berries wanted to escape the confines of the dough. Second time I used big tame berries and used my food processor to process the dough, so dough was easier to roll--not so dry. Big berries stayed put (more or less) and the finished product looked better. So moist and delicious you don't need ice cream to improve on the dish."

"This is a great dessert. However, the slices should be cut 1 1/4 inch, not 1/4 inch thick."
