1 1/2 cups
white sugar, divided
fresh blackberries, rinsed and drained
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.
Not good at all. It has no flavor!! I was very disappointed as I had been looking for a good blackberry cobbler recipe for a long time...guess I'll keep looking :o/
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.
Yum, I'll definitely make this again! I combined the advice of several other reviewers. I doubled the dough, reduced the sugar to 1/4 c. in the dough and 2/3 c. in the berries and added a 1/4 tsp. of cinnamon to both dough and berries. I ended up using 6 cups of berries and adjusted the recipe accordingly and cooked it in a 9X13 Pyrex pan at 400 degrees for 25 minutes.
This is an excellent recipe and adapts well to changes. I used frozen mixed berries from Costco - and listened to others and made 1.5 times the topping. Excellent. I don't have the pan suggested so brought it to a boil in a regular sauce pan and then transfered it to a deep disposible pan. No need for the pan underneath! Turned out great! Have made it several times now. Really good with ice cream.
This was good but WAY too sweet. I made it a second time using only 1/2 cup sugar in the fruit mixture and it was PERFECT. Yummy--thank you!
Every summer my husband an youngest son go blackberry picking and I always make the same cobbler recipe which everyone likes. This year I decided to try this recipe and we just loved it! My husband especially thought it far surpassed the other recipe I have used. He liked the fact that it was made in a cast iron skillet. The only change I made was to cut down on the sugar. I used 1/3c in the batter and 2/3c in the berries. Also I use raw (turbinado)sugar. I think less sugar lets you taste the berries more. Thanks for a great recipe, it will be the one I use from now on!
