"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." — Emily

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!
Tasted very sweet, but was almost too squishy with all the boiling water. Just didn't bake up the best. Might try it with less water.
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!
I made half of this recipe, using skim milk and slightly less sugar than it calls for because my wild berries were sweet. We loved the texture of the cake and how it looks when it's all nicely baked. Will make again!
So easy and tastes amazing! I added about 3 cups of blackberries and it still turned out great.
Great recipe quick and easy to prepare and the taste is heavenly. we had tried another recipe a couple days ago but it doesn't compare. This dish is a keeper! 5 stars
This recipe was fantastic! It was the best cobbler I have ever had, and certainly the best I have ever made. Whole family loved it and we finished the 9X13 pan in two days!!! A great way to use berries! I made it exactly to the recipe and it was perfect. I plan to try it with other fruits, depending on the season. hope it works as well!
