  • 1 1/4 cups of sugar, plus an additional 2 tablespoons of sugar. The sugar needs to be separated into a cup, a fourth of a cup, and two tablespoons.
  • 1 cup of self-rising flour
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1/2 stick or 4 tablespoons of melted butter
  • 2 cups of fresh or frozen blackberries

It is advised that you rinse and pat the blackberries dry if you are using fresh berries.  If you are opting for frozen berries, then add the blackberries while they are still frozen. The berries will get mushy if you allow them to thaw, which can negatively affect the consistency of the cobbler. 

If you do not already have self-rising flour, you can make a quick homemade version by combining a cup of flour with just a half teaspoon of salt and one and a half teaspoons of baking powder. The recipe recommends using whole milk for the cobbler, however, it is understood if you have dietary restrictions. You can substitute the whole milk with the milk of your choice. You may also note that vanilla ice cream is listed in the ingredients. This, of course, is to serve with the cobbler at the end and is optional, but who is going to argue over a cold scoop of delectable vanilla bean ice cream.

Recipe Instructions

Begin the process of making the cobbler by preheating your oven to 350 degrees. Next, in a large mixing bowl, you will combine the flour with just one cup of the sugar. Then you are going to stir in the milk, followed by the melted butter. Make sure this mixture is combined well. You will then pour this flour mixture in the bottom of a 9×9-inch baking dish. Be sure to properly grease the dish before pouring in the mixture.

Next, you will pour the blackberries on top of the flour mixture. You will then sprinkle the berries with the one-fourth cup of sugar. If you are concerned that the berries are just sitting at the top of the flour mixture, then do not worry. As the cobbler bakes, the blackberries will sink into the flour mixture. Place the baking dish into the oven and bake for fifty minutes. After fifty minutes, remove the dish from the oven, but keep the oven turned on. You will then sprinkle the two tablespoons of sugar on top of the cobbler. Put the cobbler back into the oven and bake for an additional ten minutes. The cobbler should have a golden brown crust. The cobbler is best served warm with either a scoop of ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream.
