  • Mixing bowl
  • 6-cup baking dish


  • 3 cups blackberries
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 ¼ cups sugar divided
  • 1 cup self-rising flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • ½ cup butter (1 stick of butter)
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract


  • Preheat oven to 350° Fahrenheit. Place butter in 9-in square baking dish and place in oven to melt.
  • Combine (frozen) blackberries, ¼ cup sugar, cornstarch and set aside.
  • Whisk together flour, 1 cup sugar, milk, and vanilla. Set aside.
  • Remove melted butter from oven and spoon flour mixture into pan. Spoon blackberries and syrup on top of flour mixture.
  • Bake for 45 minutes - 1 hour or until golden brown on top.
  • Allow the cobbler to cool for approximately 10 minutes before serving.



If using fresh blackberries, combine them with ¼ cup sugar and cornstarch and let them sit for 15 minutes before using.  This will help them to release their juices in a process called maceration.  
If you like lemons, feel free to add a little lemon zest to the batter for a light, refreshing taste.
