Friend Sue treated us to Blackberry Cobbler at our last gathering to play Mexican Train. (She used fresh blackberries, too.  How good is that?!

I absolutely love blackberry gobbler. One time my husband and I went to Cracker Barrel just so I could get some blackberry cobbler with ice cream.

Sue used Baron's recipe on but she increased the amount of blackberries.  I am sharing Sue's recipe.


1/2       cup sugar
2          tablespoons cornstarch
8          cups fresh blackberries
1/4       cup melted butter
2-1/2   cup all - purpose flour
1-1/2    cup sugar
1           tablespoon baking powder
1           teaspoon salt
2          cups milk
1           tablespoon vanilla extract
1/4       cup melted butter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Spray a 9 x 13 - inch pan with cooking spray.

Whisk together 1/2 cup sugar and cornstarch in a small bowl.

Place the blackberries in a mixing bowl and drizzle with 1/4 cup melted butter.

Sprinkle berries with the cornstarch mixture and toss to evenly coat.

Spread the berries in the prepared baking pan.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, 1-1/2 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt until evenly blended.

Stir in the milk, vanilla, and 1/4 cup melted butter until combined but still slightly lumpy.  

Pour the batter over the berries.

Bake until berries are tender and the crust is golden brown, about 55 minutes to an hour.

 Can serve with ice cream

or alone.
