Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the flour, 1/2 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut in butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in 1/4 cup boiling water just until mixture is evenly moist.
  3. In a separate bowl, dissolve the cornstarch in cold water. Mix in remaining 1 cup sugar, lemon juice, and blackberries. Transfer to a cast iron skillet, and bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Drop dough into the skillet by spoonfuls. Place skillet on the foil lined baking sheet.
  4. Bake 25 minutes in the preheated oven, until dough is golden brown.

This recipe isn't rated 5 stars for nothing, it's excellent! But, a few changes could be made. You either have to increase the dough or decrease the pan size. I used a 8 x 8 baking pan and the dough amount was perfect. I also added cinnamon to the dough and berries, and vanilla extract to the dough. I used tart wild black berries and it was still a little on the sweet side, I would probably decrease the sugar by a 1/4 c.

Excellent! With family stretched across 5 southern states cobbler is a tradition, and this recipe certainly rates as good as, if not better than, most family recipes (don't tell Grandma). Both me and my dad agree that this is a superb recipe. The only changes I made were to add 1/4 tsp. of freshly ground cinnamon to the dough, and another 1/4 tsp. to the fruit mix, and also a little extra lemon juice. Nothing that would really change it. Also, my new rangetop doesn't allow cast iron skillets :( No big deal. I boiled the fruit mixture in a large sauce pan and transfered to a casserole dish (uncovered) while still bubbling, and then added dough. Voila!! I don't think I'll ever need another cobbler recipe. When the blackberries run out I think I'll try it with apricots.

If you're deciding whether to make this or not, MAKE IT! This is by far the best cobbler I've ever made. If you have an iron skillet that's definitely the way to go. I doubled the topping recipe and added 1 tsp cinnamon, a dash of nutmeg and 1 tsp vanilla to the batter. I used frozen raspberries and they worked perfectly. I used the amount of sugar the recipe calls for and the sweetness was on-point. When I tossed the berries with sugar I also added the zest of one orange and squeezed a little into the boiling berry mixture. I sprinkled a little more cinnamon and some coarse sugar on the batter after dropping it into the berries and used a toothpick to check doneness.
