Blackberry Cobbler


  • 4 cups blackberries
  • 2 cups sugar, divided
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 8 tablespoons butter
  • 1 1/2 cups self-rising flour
  • 1 1/2 cups milk


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Combine the blackberries, 1 cup sugar, and water in a saucepan and mix well. Bring to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat.
Put the butter in a 3-quart baking dish and place in oven to melt.
Mix remaining 1 cup sugar, flour, and milk slowly to prevent clumping. Pour mixture over melted butter. Do not stir. Spoon fruit on top, gently pouring in syrup. Batter will rise to top during baking. Bake for 30 to 45 minutes.

*This is adapted from a Paula Deen recipe for peach cobbler.  If you want peach cobbler, simply substitute the blackberries for peeled, sliced peaches and add 1/2 cup of water to the saucepan instead of 1/4 cup.
