Dirt to Table Experience: Fresh Summer Blackberry Cobbler

Blueberries were a bust this season.  I still have hope that I can locate and score a few pounds for the freezer.

What do you do if life doesn’t throw you summer blueberries? Change your game plan and find summer blackberries.  By the way, the blackberries are rocking.

Fresh Summer Blackberry Cobbler
Serves 6-8
Recipe from Food Network

2-1/2 cups blackberries
2/3 cup sugar
1-1/2 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
8 tablespoons (1 stick) plus 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/2 cup heavy cream whipped, sweetened
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Into a buttered shallow baking dish place blackberries.  Sprinkle with 1/3 cup sugar.
In the bowl of a food processor combine flour, baking powder and salt.  Add butter and pulse to create a lumpy mixture.  Add cream and pulse until dough forms.  Dough will be soft.  Spoon dough over blackberries.
Melt 2 remaining tablespoons of butter and drizzle over mounds of dough.  Sprinkle with remaining 1/3 cup sugar.
Bake about 30-to 40 minutes or until dough and fruit are cooked through and dough is lightly browned.
Serve with whipped sweetened cream.

  1. Driving through Blount County yesterday, I saw 4 separate people on the side of the road picking wild blackberries. If I didn't have people waiting on me at the office, I would have stopped and joined them!


  2. Blackberries are the one food most closely tied to my childhood food memories. I love to pick them and I love to eat them. It's hard to find wild blackberry patches anymore so I plant Kiawah blackberries in my yard. Such a treat. I love seeing them grow.


  3. Velva, you are a mind reader. Just this morning I was thinking that I was a little lonely for some tomatoes on the vine and then your comment appeared on my blog. Thank you for your lovely comment. Your cobbler looks just spectacular. I will be trying it sometime soon.


  4. I cannot wait until the wild blackberries around here are ready. In the California foothills they are not ripe yet… so I will have to be patient until later in the summer. Thanks for the recipe. Nice post.


  5. Yeah, I actually noticed the lack of blueberries in stores. Actually, a very small container costs 5$, so I think I'd make it with blackberries as well. What a great idea, it looks delicious!


  6. My favorite way to have berries (other than just plain eating them in your hand). I'm still hoping for blueberries – but am ready for blackberries – this will get done.


  7. great minds think alike! i was craving and I do mean craving (no I am not pregnant again- thank goodness) some berry cobbler this past weekend. I opted for triple berry since i didn;t have any of just blackberries. your cobbler looks absolutely divine!


  8. Great looking cobbler. Blackberry cobbler was a favorite of mine growing up in Texas. It was fun going out and picking a little bucket of them and then Mother would always make a cobbler. I'm waiting for wild blueberries here in Maine to ripen but in the meantime…I can see blackberries in my future.
