Mama’s Blackberry Cobbler
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Bake: 45 min.
I'm almost 65 years old and just made my first cobbler yesterday using this recipe! I've made innumerable short crust pastry pies in my life but no cobblers, which is my husband's favorite. So, for Father's Day, this Blackberry Cobbler was it. It came out perfectly, with great texture and taste, but I will say, I had to bake mine up to almost 15 minutes longer at the temperature suggested to get it to turn "golden brown". I also looked up cobbler-making on YouTube before making this and found out that you're not supposed to mix the first 2 layers together! This was not mentioned in the directions so I'm glad I got wind of it ahead of time! It was so good, my son wants the same cobbler for his birthday in 2 weeks, so I'll be returning to this recipe!
Inherited this recipe from my mom, who found it in a magazine. It was called, “Essie’s Cobbler”. (I’m sure she had the recipe before I was born in 1960.). This is always a delightful dessert, especially warm with ice cream. I use either blackberries or peaches. Perfect for family reunions or pot lucks!
Been making for 20 years. It was called “creeping crust cobbler” at the time. Also if I don’t have self rising flour, add 1 1/2 tsp baking powder and 1/4 tsp salt to every cup of all purpose flour.
I used the last of my frozen Mulberries. Yummy!!
Excellent and very easy recipe. My cobbler looked almost identical to the picture. I only had all purpose flour, so to make it self rising, I added 1/4 tsp salt and 1 1/2 tsp baking powder to the 1 cup flour and blended it well. Good basic recipe for any cobbler so I will be making it often this summer.
Been using this recipe for years. My grandmother taught it to me. Sounds like the lady that didn't like it used plain flour instead of self rising flour. I made that mistake once and she us right, it was horrible. You can use this recipe with any flavor pie filling or sometimes I just use sliced canned peaches.
I followed the direction. The crust stayed on the bottom. The butter stayed separated. The fruit stayed on top. I tried cooking it longer to see if that would help. Horrible. Not edible.
For those of you commenting about the instructions saying to put the berries on top of the batter, try making it before you comment. This is correct. The berries sink down. Delicious!
This was delicious. I used 1/4 cup less sugar. Amazing with ice cream.
A very simple cobbler recipe to assemble. I used 4 cups of fresh blackberries and felt that was a good quantity.
