Very tasty, quick and easy

I used fresh blackberries and added 1/2 tsp almond extract. My only issue is the dish size. The quantities called for allow for a single layer of berries and a thin layer of batter. I would consider using a smaller dish next time. Because it is so thin, the portions, for 6, are very scant.

How can anything this easy be so good? I made the cobbler last night using blackberries I had frozen earlier in the summer. I pretty much stuck to the recipe, except to use soy margarine and milk-- worked perfectly. What I really like is the fact that, as long as you've got some fruit in the freezer, you can throw together a really great last-minute dessert.

I've made this so many times now I can do it in my sleep. It is fantastic and appeals to everyone I know. I always add more berries, sometimes a mixture of berries, sometimes berries and stone can't make this taste bad! Easy, economical, delicious, FAST. What more could you want? It's perfection after a vegetable plate dinner. Ice cream is a welcome addition.

This was wonderful!!!! I have never made cobler before because I don't like it because its gummy and doughy. This was not that way at all. I like the chewy sides and my husband liked the softer center. I made it for him and it was so easy and the fresh fruit was the way to go. I will make this again and again. BTW I eat cobler now. Lol.

My only hesitation in reviewing this recipe is I don't want anyone else to know how to make this fantastic cobbler. I want it to by my secret! My boyfriend likes blackberry desserts and I had never made any (I'm an apple pie maker from way back) This is the first recipe I found and it is phenomenal AND easy. I throw in blackberries, raspberries and blueberries, whatever I have. It is so delicious it lasts less than 24 hours every time I make it. I never even saw it was supposed to take Self Rising flour, I have used All Purpose without issue. Seriously, the worst thing I can say is you won't be able to stop eating it!! Perfect combination of fruit and carbohydrate, not too sweet, not too heavy, Yum.

Absolutely yummo. In fact, my old recipe for blackberry cobbler is going in the trash, lol. This one is perfect. I used 4 cups of frozen blackberries and did add the 1 tsp of almond extract to the batter. Also took the suggestion of adding a small amount of nutmeg and cinnamon to the 1/4 reserved sugar for the topping. It got rave reviews. My husband is the biggest critic and he loved it.. Served it with a scoop of Blue Bell no sugar added ice cream. PERFECTION!!!!

We used frozen blackberries and frozen raspberries, and served with vanilla ice cream. We thought it tasted good, but it just did not have great flavor. Maybe try blueberries next time.

Incredibly easy and very tasty. I tried using more fuit than was called for (closer to 3 cups than 2) but next time I think I would only use just a bit more than 2 cups. I used frozen mixed fruit (blueberries, blackberries, raspberries and strawberries). Next time I will think I will also add the nutmeg and cinnamon. I plan to make this often.
