This easy cobbler appeared on our cover in July 2008 and is a favorite of Pam Lolley, Test Kitchen Professional. It was originally made with fresh fruit, but Pam retested using frozen berries. She added a version that uses frozen sliced peaches flavored with peach schnapps for fun. Decrease bake times 5 to 10 minutes when using fresh fruit.
4 cups frozen blackberries*
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 large egg
1 cup sugar
1 cup all-purpose flour
6 tablespoons butter, melted
Sweetened whipped cream (optional)
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 375°. Place blackberries in a lightly greased 8-inch square baking dish; sprinkle with lemon juice. Stir together egg, sugar, and flour in a medium bowl until mixture resembles coarse meal. Sprinkle over fruit. Drizzle melted butter over topping. Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until lightly browned and bubbly. Let stand 10 minutes. Serve warm with sweetened whipped cream, if desired.
*4 cups frozen mixed berries may be substituted.
Note: For individual cobblers, prepare recipe as directed, and bake at 375° for the same amount of time in 6 (8-oz.) ramekins on an aluminum foil-lined baking sheet.

I reviewed the original recipe in 2008. I had only made it with blueberries. I tried it with blackberries this year and it was just as wonderful, maybe better. Can't wait to try peaches. It's so easy and yummy.
This was so delicious I would have scalded my mouth to eat it before it cooled. I substituted blueberries for the blackberries and it was perfection. With a scoop of vanilla ice cream, this recipe is super easy and company worthy. I'll be adding this to my family cookbook.
My first attempt at cobbler and it was amazing! I used a 9x13in pan and increased the berries to 6c of frozen mixed berries. I used 2c flour 1.5c of sugar and two eggs. Baked for 45min. The cobbler came out perfect! Just juicy enough and not too dry the topping was sweet, but not overpowering for the berries. I will keep this one in my arsenal for a quick dessert anytime!
