Ingredients for Blackberry Cobbler:
- Blackberries– Both fresh or frozen berries can be used for this recipe.
- Lemon Juice– Just a little bit of lemon juice compliments the berries and brightens things up.
- Sugar– A little is used to mix with the berries and for the yummy pastry topping. Add more sugar to the berries if they are extra tart.
- All-Purpose Flour– Used to make the pastry biscuit-like topping.
- Baking powder- This creates a tender pastry topping.
- Butter– Adds flavor and tenderness to the “cobbler” topping.
- Vanilla– Use pure vanilla extract for best flavor.
- Turbinado Sugar– This large grain sugar added at the end not only makes the dessert pretty but it also adds a nice crunch.
- Ice Cream– Definitely a necessity when serving cobbler. The combination of warm soft berries mixed with creamy ice cream is heaven!
How to make Blackberry Cobbler:
Time needed: 47 minutes
Preheat oven to 350°F and grease a 8″x8″, 7″x11″, or pie dish with butter.
- Prep Blackberries
Place blackberries in the pan and drizzle with lemon juice. In a small dish, mix together the sugar and cornstarch. Sprinkle over the berries and toss until evenly coated.
- Make Topping
In a mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Mix in the melted butter and vanilla until it forms a cookie dough-like batter. Crumble the mixture over the blackberries.
Bake for 30 minutes. Sprinkle the turbinado sugar over the top and bake 10 more minutes. Turn the oven to broil (or 475°F) and cook another 2 minutes until golden and crunchy.
Let stand for about 15-20 minutes to allow sauce to thicken. Serve warm topped with ice cream.
Yes! Frozen berries work great in this recipe. Use them in the recipe straight from the freezer.
Yes! Raspberries, blueberries, a combination of berries, peaches, and apples are will be delicious with this cobbler topping!
If you like the juices really thick, double the cornstarch next time. The sauce also thickens as it cools so be sure to let the cobbler stand for at least 15-20 minutes.
