Old fashioned Blackberry cobbler

sherry monfils


The church I have attended since I was a little girl has many women parishioners who all have their own cobbler recipes. But everyone agrees that this recipe from a wonderful older lady is the best. Unlike most cobblers, this has a crispy topping and a fluffy, fruity inside. Her original recipe called for blueberries but I wanted to make it with my favorite fruit. I made it this past Sunday , for our coffee hour, and it didn't last more than 10 minutes! The picture I took doesn't have the garnishes on it because I didn't have time, it went THAT fast!

How to Make Old fashioned Blackberry cobbler


  1. Heat oven to 375. Lightly spray a 9" x 13" baking pan w/ cooking spray. In a large bowl, cream the butter, 1-1/2 cups sugar, vanilla, lemon juice, milk and salt until well blended.
  2. Stir in flour until just blended. Spoon blackberries into bottom of pan. Pour or spoon batter over berries. With a rubber spatula gently spread batter to cover berries.
  3. In another bowl whisk together remaining sugar and the cornstarch. Sprinkle evenly over top of batter. Pour boiling water over cornstarch mix, evenly. Gently stir it up a bit. Bake for 40 minutes or until top is crispy looking, ( don't worry, the inside will be nice and soft.) I make my own whipped cream for this, which I top the cobbler slices with along w/ a sprinkling of lemon peel curls for garnish.
