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


  • 1Heat 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.
  • 2Stir 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.
  • 3In 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.
