My husband is from Alabama, so I like to treat him to classic Southern desserts. This cobbler is a must-have for us in the summer. —Kimberly Danek Pinkson, San Anselmo, California

  • 5 cups fresh blackberries
  • 1/3 cup turbinado (washed raw) sugar
  • 2 tablespoons quick-cooking tapioca
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons cornstarch or arrowroot flour
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons cold butter
  • 1/3 cup fat-free milk
  • Vanilla ice cream, optional


  1. Preheat oven to 375°. In a large bowl, combine first five ingredients. Transfer to a 2-qt. baking dish coated with cooking spray.
  2. In a small bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in milk just until moistened. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto blackberry mixture.
