Notes

  • I use butter in my blackberry cobbler, but margarine would work too.  1/2 cup of butter equals 1 stick.
  • Taste your blackberries before adding sugar.  If they are super sweet, you may be able to use a little less, and if they are super tart, you may want to add a touch more.
  • FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS:  Only add the sweetened blackberries to the center of the batter, not around the edges if you can avoid it.  The sugar from the blackberries will cause the edge of the homemade blackberry cobbler to get dark and hard from the sugar burning.
  • This from scratch blackberry cobbler is great as is but is also amazing topped with vanilla ice cream, whipped topping, or with a little drizzle of cold milk right over top (a tip from my Dad).
