Fabulous Food: My grandma's Blackberry Cobbler

This cobbler recipe has a sweet breading on top instead of the pie-like crust found in a lot of cobblers. The breading is crunchy like a crust, but has a cake like texture closer to the fruit.  Soooo good! My grandmother made this cobbler a lot as we were growing up.  I have always liked it best with blackberries, but it is great with peaches as well.

Blackberry Cobbler:


4 c. fresh blackberries
1 c. flour
2 c. sugar (1 c. to combine with the fruit and 1 c. for the batter)
1/2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 c. milk
1 stick butter (melted and cooled)

In a large bowl, combine the blackberries with 1 c. sugar.  Mix well and set aside.  In a separate bowl combine the remaining ingredients.  Pour the blackberry mixture into a 13x9 baking dish.  Pour the batter over the blackberries.  Bake in a 350 degree oven for 40-45 minutes.

This recipe is so simple, but it is very important to use a tart fruit like blackberries.  The breading is sweet on it's own, so it tastes great with the tartness of the fruit.
