Blackberry Cobbler



  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 4 cups fresh or frozen blackberries


  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 5 tablespoons butter
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 3 tablespoons milk


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

For the Filling

  • Combine the sugar and cornstarch in a saucepan, and add the water.
  • Add the blackberries, and cook on low to medium heat until thick and bubbly, stirring constantly.
  • Keep warm while preparing the topping.

For the Topping

  • Mix the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking powder, and cinnamon) in a bowl and add in the butter with a fork until it forms coarse crumbles.
  • Combine the egg and milk in a separate bowl, and then add to the flour mixture, stirring to just combine and moisten.

For the Cobbler

  • Pour the filling into a greased 8" x 8" baking dish, and drop the topping in mounds on top of the hot filling.
  • Bake at 400 F for 20 - 25 minutes, or until the topping is golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  • Serve warm, and top with ice-cream (optional).
