Blackberry Cobbler Recipe

Serves: 10-12
This cobbler was a staple dessert made by my mother and passed down to me, and it is simple to whip up in 10 minutes and have ready to eat in about another 30 – and it’s easy and fun for the kids to help with! My personal favorite is a mix of blackberries and peaches, but red or black raspberries or sour cherries are other great options. *We now sell all of these ingredients in our market!
  • 3-4 cups of fresh berries (Frozen berries can be substituted, but you will need to reduce liquid or increase baking time.)
  • ½ lemon or lime
  • 1 ½ cups flour (unbleached or all purpose)
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • ¾ to 1 cup sugar
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 ½ cups milk
  • 1 ½ tsp vanilla
  • 6 Tbsp melted butter
  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Grease 9x13 baking dish.
  2. Wash fruit and set aside to drain. (If using frozen fruit, do not thaw first.)
  3. Whisk together all dry ingredients. (The original recipe calls for 1 ½ cups of sugar – but we reduce it to ¾ cup!)
  4. Add milk and vanilla and whisk until smooth.
  5. Pour this batter into greased baking dish.
  6. Squeeze lemon into berries and give a quick stir. Distribute fruit on top of batter.
  7. *We like ours chockfull of fruit (4 cups/1quart), but it does make the baking time a little longer due to the extra juice.
  8. Melt butter and drizzle over top.
  9. Bake for 25-35 minutes or until golden brown on top. (Can take 35-40 if using a larger amount of fruit.)
  10. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream, or our go to – whipped Kreider’s Heavy Cream with a dash of vanilla, and perhaps a sprinkle of sugar and/or cinnamon. All the flavor of vanilla ice cream, but little to no sugar!
