Simple Blackberry Cobbler

Texas-size-blackberries

I apologize that there’s not a photograph for this recipe.  You’ll have to trust me that it makes a beautiful dessert and it’s absolutely worth the time to bake it up.  I served this recipe in a cooking demonstration at our Main Street Farmers’ Market and the crowd went ga-ga for it.  It helps to make sure the blackberries are sweet on their own without the need to add sugar.  If you happen to buy tart blackberries, wait a day, they’ll sweeten up on their own.

HERE’S ALL IT TAKES

To make 6 servings

  • 4 cups fresh blackberries
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 6 tablespoons melted butter


HEAT oven to 375ºF.

Grease 8-inch square pan.  Layer berries in pan and sprinkle with fresh lemon juice.  In a medium bowl, stir together egg, sugar and flour until it resembles a course meal.  Sprinkle over fruit.  Drizzle butter over the top.
BAKE 35 minutes, until lightly brown & bubbly.  Allow to cool 10 minutes then serve warm with whipped cream.


TEXAS SIZE BLACKBERRY COBBLER

To make 24 servings

  • 16 cups fresh blackberries
  • 4 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 4 large egg
  • 4 cup sugar
  • 4 cup all purpose flour
  • 3 sticks or 1 1/2 cups melted butter

HEAT oven to 375ºF.
Grease 12-inch by 17-inch half sheet pan.  Layer berries in pan and sprinkle with fresh lemon juice.  In a large bowl, stir together egg, sugar and flour until it resembles a course meal.  Sprinkle over fruit.  Drizzle butter over the top.
BAKE 35 minutes, until lightly brown & bubbly.  Allow to cool 10 minutes then serve warm with whipped cream.

      I used this same recipe with blueberries instead and everyone enjoyed it just as much.

    OMGoodness this looks FANTASTIC!!!!! I just LOVE blackberries. We make this using dewberries. They are pretty darn close to the same thing. I just bought some frozen blackberries because I can’t find any fresh. I was going to use them in muffins (LOVE fruit’ed’ muffins), but I wonder if it would work to use frozen with this recipe? Worth a try! May have to add some corn starch to the berries due to them being frozen (might get to liquidy)…But if I run across some fresh (sometime SAMS has them—wish they weren’t so expensive though) I will have to try this!!

      Shawna,

      You ought to look for a farm that will let you pick blackberries. Go to LocalHarvest.org and put in your zip. That database is FULL of places to score fresh goodies in season. I’m on their email list to learn when farms have events or make updates.

      I went to McPeak Orchard in Pittsburgh, TX to pick my own blackberries. They also grow peaches, raspberries, strawberries and veggies.

      Before you run to the hypermarts, hit a farm near you. You’ll get a much better product and save money, too. As well as help your local economy & farmer. ;D

    Great recipe! Nice and simple. I didn’t have nearly enough blackberries, so I put them into cupcake cups instead, turned out just as delicious. I added a dollop of creme fraiche which was a nice salty sour accompaniment to the tangy sweet cobbler. Thank you!

    Jill, Since you went to pick blackberries at the McPeak orchards, you are probably close to Longview. Chris McPeak is bringing their blackberries (which are unbelievable for both size and flavor!) to the Historic Longview Farmers Market. There are chef’s demos every week. If you are interested in an appearance, please send me an email. Lynette

      I’m actually in Sulphur Springs, Lynette. Thank you for the invitation, but I’ll have to decline. It’s so good to hear Longview has a farmers market. It’s so important to have a way for folks to support their local farmers.
