Wonderful served warm with ice cream...brings back wonderful memories of picking berries and sitting down at the table with my family. Works well with fresh or frozen fruit. You can also use black raspberries, peaches, cherries...a new favorite is 2 cups fresh peaches and 2 cups fresh blackberries!

Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  2. Place the blackberries into a large saucepan; add the cornstarch and 1 1/2 cup of sugar. Pour in the water, and bring to a boil over high heat, stirring constantly until the berries have thickened, about 5 minutes. Pour into the prepared baking dish.
  3. Whisk the flour, baking powder, salt, and 2/3 cup of sugar together in a mixing bowl. Cut in the margarine until it is the size of peas. Stir in the milk until a soft dough forms, then drop by spoonfuls onto the hot blackberry topping.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 30 to 45 minutes.

Tried it twice. Too runny, doesn't set up. Too much water. Why are you boiling the blackberries? Too hot of an oven. I would change, make the simple syrup and pour over the uncooked blackberries, don't add the milk to the topping, just crumble it together with the butter, and turn down the heat!!!! 350 is correct temperature.

I think this was overly sweet and I cut down the sugar in the berries. Maybe that would be a function of the berries. This isn't my favorite blackberry cobbler but not the worst. I think using juice instead of water and cutting down the sugar would help tremendously.

This was very good. I followed the directions exactly as written, other than accidentally boiling the berries a little to long because I got busy!!! I think they were boiling for 11 minutes instead of the 5... It was perfect!! I don't see why anyone would say different.. :) Thank you!!!
