A 4th of July dish every year for us. I can remember the first one I made. We picked the berries, we made dough, rolled it out, & used cookie cutters to cut out stares for the top crust. I was 8. And so proud to show off my cobbler for the family reunion.

This recipe is faster & easier than the one I made many centuries ago. But just as good.


  • 5 cups fresh or frozen (thawed and drained) blackberries (do not use blueberries)
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 cups Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cup milk
  • 1 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 stick Butter


  • In medium bowl, stir together blackberries and sugar. Let stand about 20 minutes or until fruit syrup forms.
  • Heat oven to 375°F.
  • In large bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, salt and milk.
  • Stir in melted butter until blended.
  • Spread in ungreased 9"x11" pan.
  • Spoon blackberry mixture over batter.
  • Sprinkle 1/2 cup of sugar all over this.
  • Cut butter in little pats, dot on top of sugar.
  • Bake 45 to 55 minutes or until dough rises and is golden.
  • Serve warm with cream or can serve over ice cream.
