Rather than breaking a sweat over the perfect pie crust and lattice top for your farmers' market blackberries, use them up in a simple cobbler. All you need are fresh berries plus 5 more ingredients. To make it special, top with whipped cream and a mint garnish. If you are not serving it immediately, keep the different components separate as to avoid getting them soggy. This quick and easy recipe makes for a great entertaining dessert for your next summer cookout.
4 cups fresh blackberries
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 large egg
1 cup sugar
1 cup all-purpose flour
6 tablespoons butter, melted
Whipped cream (optional)
Garnish: fresh mint sprig
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 at 375° for 35 minutes or until lightly browned and bubbly. Let stand 10 minutes. Serve warm with whipped cream, if desired. Garnish with fresh mint sprig, if desired.
For a neat presentation, bake for the same amount of time in 6 (8-oz.) ramekins on an aluminum foil-lined baking sheet.
Serve this cobbler after your guests enjoy a simple, but impressive summer slow-cooker dish. This dish is vibrant and sweet. It would also be a perfect dessert for Easter dinner. This is a dish the entire family will enjoy. Swap out the blackberries for strawberries or peaches, if you please.
I made this easy, delicious recipe early this morning...4th of July. I had an abundance of assorted fresh berries that needed to get used. Blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, and strawberries combined made this cobbler one of the best it have baked and eaten. I read one of the reviews that stated the crumb mixture was a wet mess. Based on my experience with this recipe I am of the thought that the baker mixed the egg AND the butter into the dry ingredients which would surely create a sticky mess! The dry ingredients and the egg did indeed make a lovely, dry, crumbly mixture. I added a light sprinkling of cinnamon on the top before popping it into the oven. The house smelled heavenly! This recipe is a keeper!! I look forward to making it again with other fruit. Give this great recipe a go. You will not be disappointed!
Loved this and have used this recipe for many years. Almost any fruit or berry works well in this. I have used blackberries, blueberries, apples and peaches, and all have turned out well. I have also used self rising flour which produced a crispy, biscuit-y like topping, which I liked even better.
Was very easy to make I did not get a sticky mess. I believe others may have used extra large or jumbo eggs. I used one large egg, the 5 dozen box from Wal-Mart. I did not have the butter lake either I poured over the whole dish. Will post after taste
I really wasn't sure about this recipe but others weren't giving me enough berries and were a bit too sweet and dry. I took a chance and it's most certainly the best I've had since leaving home. Quick, easy with just enough texture for a curst.
I fixed this last night for company and everyone raved about it. The no milk batter had me a little concerned, but, it was great. As suggested, I put 2 TBS of raw sugar over the berrys (and used it in the batter) and cut the butter back to 4 1/2 TBS. I let it sit for 30 minutes before baking which gave the butter time to absorb into the batter. No pooling. Also cooked it 50 minutes to brown it a little more.This is now my go to cobbler recipe!
A great way to use all those berries from the blackberry bush. Delicious and so easy. I've made it twice in the past week. I added about 1 Tbsp cinnamon and crumbled a little brown sugar on top before baking. Served with whipped cream, or ice cream if you want to be super naughty! So good!
So yummy and so easy! I reduce the amount of butter/margarine by almost half. Made it for the umpteenth time last weekend but I used blueberries instead of blackberries. I think I like it even better that way!
