Everything But The... Blackberry Cobbler

Recipe by  

"This cobbler tastes just like your grandma's but has a twist in the topping! This recipe works great with any other type of fruit as well. As with any recipe using fresh fruit, you need to taste it first to determine how much sugar needs to be added to it."

  1. Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Place the blackberries in a large saucepan with 1 cup of sugar. Dissolve the cornstarch in the cold water, and stir into the berries. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat, and cook until bubbly and thickened, 3 to 5 minutes. Pour the blackberries into a 9x13-inch baking dish; set aside.
  3. Whisk the flour with 1/2 cup sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt in a mixing bowl. With a pastry cutter, cut in the cold butter until crumbly. Stir in the pecans, oats, and brown sugar until evenly blended. Stir in the hot water until evenly moistened. Drop the batter over the blackberries by the spoonful.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the top is golden brown and the berries are bubbly, about 25 minutes.

I agree with the submitter -- tasting the fruit first determines the amount of sugar needed! While cooking fruit on the stovetop then again in the oven may benefit firm apples or pears, delicate berries do not need much heat to coax out their delicious juices. I made the simple syrup + cornstarch as directed, then poured the semi-cooled mixture over the berries in individual ramekins. At first the topping is a nicely spiced streusel, then it becomes a sticky dough once the hot water is added -- still easy enough to plunk ontop of the berries. The cobblers were golden brown after 18 min in my oven. Oh, these do bubble and sputter a bit while baking - just bake cobbler(s) on a foil-lined sheet pan to save on clean-up. Your oven will thank you.

My husband raved and raved about this dessert, and he's not big on desserts. The only things I did different is I increased the blackberries to 8 cups and added about 1/2 cup more of flour while it was cooking, this filled the 9 x 13 pan better and made it set up better, less runny.

very good! I didn't change a thing, except there wasn't enough blackberry mixture to fit a 9x13 pan, so I used a 7x11. Also didn't have oats on hand, and it was fine without. Took this to a group gathering, and none was left!

Loved it! I split it into two 8x8 pans so I could save one for another time...not sure it will stay in freezer so so GOOD!

This is my go to cobbler recipe. I now omit the first 4 ingredients and use any of my home canned pie fillings. I usually make make 1.5 recipes for a 9x13 pan because we love plenty of topping. This is a very easy recipe, I always have all the ingredients on hand and can throw it together last minute.
