Prep Time:
Cook Time:

Amy shares an easy, cake-like cobbler recipe of her Aunt Jane’s. Originally meant for peaches, she substitutes blackberries.


  • 4 cups blackberries
  • 2 cups sugar, divided
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 8 tablespoons butter
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder


Combine blackberries, 1 cup sugar and water in saucepot. Bring to boil and simmer 10 minutes. While berries are simmering, put butter in a three-quart dish and place in oven while heating to 350 degrees. Mix remaining 1 cup sugar, flour, salt, baking powder, and milk until smooth. Pour mixture over melted butter. Do not stir. Gently spoon fruit over batter and pour remaining juices on top. Bake 30 to 45 minutes until brown and bubbling.
