My husband claims Homemade Blackberry Cobbler is my best dessert ever. And it should be as it’s an old family recipe. But you’ll have to decide for yourself. 

When I was a girl, my mom made lots of pies and cobblers. Not many cakes or cookies. When I became old enough to manage in the kitchen, those became my duties. However, here in the Midwest, I think pies and cobblers are the norm. Farmers must love them. I know my family does (on both sides).

 

Ingredients Needed to Make Homemade Blackberry Cobbler

  • fresh blackberries (rinsed and drained)
  • granulated sugar
  • freshly ground nutmeg

Dough:

  • all-purpose flour
  • granulated sugar
  • baking powder
  • salt
  • butter
  • large egg
  • whole milk
  • butter
  • granulated sugar for topping

 

Instructions for Making This Recipe

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Gather all your ingredients so that you have everything close at hand on the counter or table. 

In a small bowl, combine the rinsed and drained blackberries, granulated sugar, and freshly ground nutmeg. Carefully mix until sugar dissolves and makes its own juice.

Buy fresh blackberries when they are in season for the best prices at your grocery store. Or grow them yourself. The thornless kind! You could even use frozen if you want. If you do, I would suggest that you thaw the blackberries before using.

In a medium bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt. With a blending fork, cut in cold butter. Add the large egg and whole milk. Sir until moistened.

Your dough should be fairly stiff at this point.

Pour the prepared blackberries into a square or small oval greased baking dish. Add dots of butter over the fruit.

This step is important. Don’t forget the butter!

Spoon the biscuit dough over the fruit in mounds, spreading to edges. Generously sprinkle the top with granulated sugar.

The sough on the blackberries should resemble a “cobbled” look, like stepping stones. I have seen cobblers brought to potlucks that look like a pie. That’s not what we’re going for here. We want the folks who see this to be reminded of an Irish cobbled pathway. Or something like that.

Bake for 25-30 minutes until edges are golden brown and topping is cooked through. Serves 6-8.

For this dish, we’re looking for spots of fruit to bubble up around the cobbled mounds of dough as it bakes. The sugar will give your baked crust a sparkling shine. So pretty and delicious!

Serve Homemade Blackberry Cobbler warm from the oven with a mound of ice-cream and your family will love you forever!
