Easy Blackberry Cobbler

blackberry cobbler

Blackberry cobbler is a delicious and comforting dessert that showcases the juicy sweetness of blackberries with a golden, buttery crust. Here’s a classic recipe to make a homemade blackberry cobbler:

Ingredients:

Filling:

  • Blackberries: 4 cups fresh or frozen (thawed and drained)
  • Sugar: 1 cup
  • Cornstarch: 2 tablespoons
  • Lemon Juice: 1 tablespoon
  • Vanilla Extract: 1 teaspoon

Topping:

  • All-Purpose Flour: 1 cup
  • Sugar: 1/4 cup
  • Baking Powder: 1 1/2 teaspoons
  • Salt: 1/2 teaspoon
  • Unsalted Butter: 6 tablespoons, cold and cut into small pieces
  • Milk: 1/2 cup
  • Cinnamon Sugar (optional): 2 tablespoons sugar mixed with 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Instructions:

  1. Preheat Oven:
    • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Prepare the Filling:
    • In a large mixing bowl, combine the blackberries, sugar, cornstarch, lemon juice, and vanilla extract. Stir gently until the blackberries are evenly coated.
    • Pour the blackberry mixture into a 9×9-inch baking dish or a similarly sized baking dish.
  3. Make the Topping:
    • In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
    • Add the cold butter pieces to the flour mixture. Using a pastry cutter or your fingers, cut the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.
    • Pour in the milk and stir just until the dough comes together. It will be slightly sticky.
  4. Assemble the Cobbler:
    • Drop spoonfuls of the dough over the blackberry filling. The dough doesn’t need to cover the berries completely; it will spread as it bakes.
    • If using, sprinkle the top of the dough with the cinnamon sugar mixture.
  5. Bake:
    • Place the cobbler in the preheated oven and bake for 35-40 minutes, or until the topping is golden brown and the filling is bubbling around the edges.
  6. Cool and Serve:
    • Allow the cobbler to cool for about 15 minutes before serving. This helps the filling to set slightly.
    • Serve warm, optionally with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream.

Tips:

  • Berries: If using frozen blackberries, make sure they are fully thawed and well-drained to prevent excess liquid in the cobbler.
  • Topping: For a different texture, you can use a biscuit topping instead of a drop dough topping. Simply prepare your favorite biscuit dough and place it on top of the blackberry filling.
  • Variations: Add a teaspoon of grated lemon zest to the filling for an extra burst of citrus flavor, or mix in other berries like raspberries or blueberries for a mixed berry cobbler.

Enjoy your homemade blackberry cobbler, a perfect dessert for any occasion!
