 Tell me, what’s your summertime little guilty pleasure?  Share with me ~ I’ll keep it a secret! 

One of mine is fresh homemade Blackberry Cobbler!

The juicy blackberries had my name written on them when I saw them at the farmer’s market yesterday ~ I knew exactly what to do with them ~ cobbler!

BB baked
The plump bites of tartness sweetened up with a little sprinkling of sugar; depending upon sweetness of berries, plus a touch of lemon zest and cinnamon.  Baked over the berries, is a simple homemade biscuit cobbler topping.   It’s easy to pull together and a perfect little dessert for anyone. 

We enjoy blackberry cobbler warm, with a scoop of vanilla ice cream ~ it’s oh so delicious!  

Pure bliss…

Blackberry Cobbler

For the berries:

4 cups fresh blackberries
¼ to ⅓ cup sugar
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1 tablespoon lemon juice
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
1½ tablespoons instant tapioca

For the cobbler topping:

3 tablespoons sugar
1 cup flour
1½ teaspoons baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons butter
¼ cup milk
1 egg, lightly beaten


In a 9” x 9” baking dish, combine berries, sugars, lemon zest and juice, cinnamon and cornstarch, combine well.
Let berries set for 30 minutes to macerate.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a medium bow, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. 
Cut the butter into the flour with a pastry blender or 2 knives, until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Make a well in the center and stir in milk and beaten egg until just moistened, do not over-stir.
By large spoonfuls, place mounds of dough over the berries in the baking dish.
Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the topping is bubbly and a golden brown.
Serve warm or room temperature with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream

    Perfect summer dessert! I happen to have blackberries as it is a favorite of mine in the summer. So I will be making this recipe this week.Years ago I lived in upstate New York, and my neighbor had a few blackberry trees..We used to pick them and I would make blackberry pies...they are so good. Thanks for sharing this post... Have a good week...

    1. Thanks, Dottie! It's the best for summer in my way of thinking. Bet those NY blackberries were good! We used to have them on the farm when I was growing up and it was a wonderful thing, good blackberries!

    1. Got you Melinda! My exact sentiments.

  10. Cobbler with blackberries must be very delicious :)

    1. Medeja, it is! I can't imagine a summer without a good blackberry cobbler. :-)

  11. Dear Pam, that looks like a wonderful summer indulgence. Those berries would have been calling me too! My summer indulgence is a creamy coconut ice. xo, Catherine

  12. The cobbler looks great Pam - it's hard to walk past a container of the good stuff.

  13. I have never done much with blackberries except eat them fresh. They are my favorite berry and maybe it is because they are a splurge. But oh boy, does this look good. May have to splurge!

  15. I'm in - anything to do with berries makes me very happy. This is berry bliss!

  16. Never met a cobbler I didn't like! Peach is my weakness, but blackberry is awfully good too. This looks superb! Thanks so much.

  17. I'm drooling but peach cobbler would be even tastier!

  18. What a gorgeous cobbler, Pam! They are so much easier than making a pie but every bit as delicious.

  19. My favorite has to be a peach raspberry pie or crisp. But I do love blackberry desserts, too :)

  20. I love far too much of summer, Pam, and my waistline shows it! Love blackberries and your cobbler topping looks magnificent! Pinned!

  21. i've only used tapioca once--for some reason, i almost always revert to cornstarch. regardless, this looks delicious and your biscuit topping is fabulous!
