Favorite Blackberry Cobbler Recipe

We grow blackberries on our farm that our family enjoys in pies, jams, jellies and cobblers. I love to pull them out of the freezer in January and make this warm cobbler to enjoy summer's sweetness. —Lori Daniels, Beverly, West Virginia
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 30 min. YIELD:9 servings


  • 3 cups fresh or frozen blackberries
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup cold water
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup cold butter, cubed
  • 1/2 cup 2% milk
  • Whipped topping or vanilla ice cream, optional


  • 1. In a large saucepan, combine the blackberries, sugar and cinnamon. Cook and stir until mixture comes to a boil. Combine cornstarch and water until smooth; stir into fruit mixture. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Pour into a greased 8-in. square baking dish. Dot with butter.
  • 2. For topping, in a small bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in milk just until moistened. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto hot berry mixture.

"I have made this recipe many times, always with fresh blackberries. It always turns out wonderfully and is one of my favorite summer desserts."

"No sure yet. It's still cooling, but the filling was so soupy. Much more filling than batter. Maybe using frozen berries was the problem and the recipe should have suggested less water? Doesn't look too promising and I'm stunned by all the positive reviews for this."

"This is just like the blackberry cobbler my mom used to make when I was a little girl (59 now). Delicious and will be the only recipe I use for cobbler from now on."

"The topping was soup! Do not use 1/2 cup milk. The recipe says till moist but I was in a hurry and just dumped in 1/2 cup WAY TOO MUCH. It is cooling now may be able to save it"

"This recipe is the best. I have made it a number of times since I found it last summer on Taste of Home and it is so easy and quick to make, and delicious to boot! Last week I had fresh peaches and used those in place of the blackberries, and it turned out every bit as good. Other than that I make no adjustments to the recipe."

"This is a good recipe. It allows the blackberry flavor to come through. I did punch up the cinnamon to 1/2 tsp but I will be looking for a more complementary/flavor filled topping. We (the family) all agreed we wanted more there by the way of an oaty flavor or caramelized brown sugar. Found it easy to make though and it was good warm with cold vanilla bean ice cream!!"
