“This is the easiest dessert to make. If you pop it in the oven before you serve your meal, you will have a hot cobbler to plop a scoop of vanilla ice cream on for dessert.”

Original recipe yields 1 9x13-inch baking dish



  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Whisk the flour, baking powder, and salt together in a mixing bowl.
  2. Cream 1 cup of sugar with the softened butter until light and fluffy. Mix in the flour mixture alternately with the milk until no large lumps remain. Pour into a 9x13-inch baking dish. Arrange the berries over the batter, and sprinkle with the remaining 1 cup of sugar. Pour the boiling water over top.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the batter has firmed and the berries are soft, about 50 minutes.

I made this for my wife for Mothers Day. I was nervous about baking but it turned out great. She even liked it better than her berry cobbler that she has been making for years. We can't wait for fresh blackberries this summer! Awesome recipe!



This is a fascinating recipe. Instead of placing dollops of raw dough on top of the fruit, the raw dough goes on the bottom, and during baking rises to the top. I ran this procedure by a friend and she commented that this must be a very old recipe, indeed. None-the-less, it turns out beautifully. I reduce the sugar to 2/3 cup in the final (third step), and it is sweet enough, especially with vanilla ice creme. Once cooled, it does form a purple gelatanous base, but this could be scraped off to lessen calories even further. We are swimming in blackberries and this recipe is one delicious, easy, and impressive way to use them. Any berry, fruit or rhubarb could be used.



Delicious! This was simple to make and turned out well. I halved the recipe and baked it in an 8x8" dish. The baking time remained the same. Great use of fresh berries!
