Blackberry Cobbler

May 31, 2010

Oh, summer fruit, you make me so happy. Our last Farmhouse bin contained a basket of blackberries and some peaches. I used them in this cobbler… and now I am determined to make cobblers ALL THE TIME, using this recipe. We loved the biscuit-y topping, and I imagine just about any fruit would be great in it.

I halved the recipe from here… below are the amounts I used.

Blackberry Peach Cobbler

  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 3/4 cup plus 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 1/2 cups blackberries
  • 3 medium peaches, peeled, pited and cut into wedges
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 stick cold unsalted butter, cut into small cubes
  • 1/2 cup plus 1 1/2 tablespoons milk

Preheat oven to 425F. Spray a pie dish (9-inch would work well) with cooking spray.

Whisk together cornstarch and 3/4 cup sugar in a large bowl, then add blackberries and peaches and toss to combine well. Transfer to baking dish and bake just until bubbling, 10 to 15 minutes.

While fruit bakes, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt in another large bowl, then blend in butter with a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add milk and stir just until a dough forms.

Drop dough onto hot fruit mixture in mounds, then sprinkle dough with remaining teaspoon of sugar. Bake cobbler until top is golden, 20 – 25 minutes. Serve warm.

Makes 4 – 6 servings.

    I love it when anything blackberry is made and the lovely juices ooze out through cracks or on the side. Honestly, this is beautiful. Thanks for sharing :)

  3. Thanks for the recipe* And thanks for your blog! I discovered it recently, and i like your pictures and ideas of places and recipes and things to try! Even though i live in France and won’t be able to go get a toboggan-sliding sandwich right away! I think i’m gonna try today’s recipe tomorrow, as i’ve been making horrendous experimental cooking recently and scared my friends out. I need to get them something to be forgiven…

      I’m so glad you’re enjoying my little blog! I think a blackberry cobbler would be the perfect thing for your friends. :)

      I’m excited about reading your blog… I am in the extreme early stages of learning French, so it’s fun to find pretty blogs in French and English. :)

    this looks wonderful! i need to find more dishes like the one you used. after my peach-picking excursion, i also made a peach/blackberry cobbler, my first ever cobbler, in fact! it was so SO good; paired with vanilla fro-yo. i’m going to try a strawberry rhubarb one next.
