I’ve been making these for years and people lose their mind over them every time I make this

Blackberry cobbler is a quintessential dessert that combines the tartness of fresh blackberries with a sweet, biscuit-like topping. This comforting dish has deep roots in American culinary tradition, offering a delightful contrast of flavors and textures in every bite. Whether enjoyed warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or savored on its own, blackberry cobbler promises a taste of nostalgia and the joy of homemade goodness.



Ingredient Quantity
Fresh blackberries 4 cups
Granulated sugar 1 cup
All-purpose flour 1 cup
Baking powder 1 teaspoon
Salt 1/4 teaspoon
Unsalted butter 1/2 cup (cold, cut into cubes)
Milk 1/2 cup
Vanilla extract 1 teaspoon
Lemon zest 1 teaspoon
Ground cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon


  1. Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease a 9×9 inch baking dish lightly with butter or cooking spray.
  2. Prepare Blackberries:
    • Wash the fresh blackberries thoroughly under cold water and pat them dry gently with paper towels.
  3. Mix Blackberries with Sugar:
    • In a large mixing bowl, combine the blackberries with 1/2 cup of granulated sugar. Toss gently until the blackberries are coated evenly. Set aside.
  4. Make Cobbler Dough:
    • In another bowl, whisk together the flour, remaining 1/2 cup of granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt.
    • Add the cold cubed butter to the flour mixture. Use a pastry cutter or your fingers to cut the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  5. Combine Wet Ingredients:
    • In a small bowl, mix together the milk, vanilla extract, and lemon zest.
  6. Form Dough:
    • Pour the milk mixture into the flour mixture. Stir until just combined and a soft dough forms.
  7. Assemble Cobbler:
    • Spread the sugared blackberries evenly in the prepared baking dish.
    • Drop spoonfuls of the dough mixture over the blackberries, covering them as much as possible.
  8. Bake:
    • Sprinkle ground cinnamon over the top of the dough.
    • Place the baking dish in the preheated oven and bake for 45-50 minutes, or until the cobbler topping is golden brown and the blackberries are bubbling.
  9. Serve:
    • Remove from the oven and let it cool slightly before serving.
    • Serve warm, optionally with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
