Black Berry Cobbler Recipe

This classic black berry cobbler is a delicious and easy-to-make dessert, perfect for any occasion. The sweet and tangy berries combined with a soft, buttery crust create a delightful treat that everyone will love.


  • For the Filling:
  • 4 cups fresh blackberries (can use frozen if fresh are not available)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • For the Topping:
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup milk


  1. Preheat Oven:
  • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  1. Prepare the Filling:
  • In a large bowl, combine the blackberries, sugar, lemon juice, and cornstarch. Stir gently to mix well.
  • Pour the berry mixture into a 9×9-inch (or similar size) baking dish.
  1. Make the Topping:
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  • Add the melted butter, vanilla extract, and milk to the dry ingredients. Stir until just combined. The batter will be thick.
  1. Assemble the Cobbler:
  • Spoon the batter evenly over the blackberry mixture in the baking dish. You can spread it out a bit, but it doesn’t need to cover the berries completely.
  1. Bake:
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 40-45 minutes, or until the topping is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the topping comes out clean.
  1. Serve:
  • Allow the cobbler to cool for about 15 minutes before serving. Serve warm, optionally with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream.

Enjoy your homemade black berry cobbler!
