5 stars from 1 rating of Blackberry Cobbler

This easy and delicious blackberry cobbler recipe dates back to a bumper crop of the purple beauties flourishing one summer on Block Island, off the coast of Rhode island.

By definition, cobblers have a biscuit topping. Heating the fruit before spooning on the dough makes the biscuit cook quickly and stay crisper. You can add 2 to 3 tablespoons of cornmeal to the dough if you'd like. This blackberry cobbler recipe works nicely with other fruit, too.


Ingredients for berries

  • 2 tablspoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup water, cold
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 4 cups blackberries

Ingredients for biscuit topping

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar (can be eliminated if the berries are very sweet)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons cold butter
  • 1/4 cup water, very hot

Cook Time

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 35 min
Ready in: 50 min
Yields: Serves 6 to 8.


  1. Heat oven to 400 F (205 C)
  2. Dissolve cornstarch in 1/4 cup of cold water.
  3. Add 1 cup of sugar and the lemon juice, and toss with the blackberries.
  4. Pour the mix into a greased, 8x8-inch baking dish.
  5. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in the butter to make a coarse meal. Add 1/4 cup of very hot water to create soft dough.
  6. Bake the fruit mix until it's bubbling, 10 to 15 minutes.
  7. Remove it from the oven, and spoon the dough across the top of the fruit. It won't be entirely covered.
  8. Bake again until golden, 20 to 25 minutes.
  9. Serve with vanilla ice cream.

      I remember when I was a kid, we lived wayyyy out in the country and mom and I used to pick black berries and make a cobbler. We would get so many berries, she was able to make enough to freeze so we would have cobbler all through the winter. Thanks for sparking a wonderful memory. Cobbler sounds yummy!!
