My MaMa's Blackberry Cobbler!




How are you today? I promised I would share this scrumptious cobbler recipe I learned years ago from the best cook in the world. Well maybe in Texas!

My Mama could turn out some of the best meals and desserts that would make you slap your momma. Til this day I have never accomplished the roast gravy that she would serve with her roast. Oh my gosh I still can taste her gravy. lol

Lucky you though I can share her Blackberry Cobbler recipe. It is so easy but trust me you won't regret serving this to your family. That is if you can share it.

Okay lets get started! First gather up these few ingredients along with your favorite mixing bowl and baking dish.

1 stick of Butter
1 cup of Self Rising Flour
1 cup of Sugar
1 cup of Milk
2 cups of Black Berries or any fruit

While you melt the stick of butter you need to mix your sugar and flour in mixing bowl. Then whisk in your cup of milk mixing well and then add your melted butter. Whisk until smooth like a baby's rear end.

After you finish this mixture pour it into the baking dish but first spread butter completely covering the inside of your dish . Now my mama always said don't be stingy on covering the dish with butter. Sometimes though I just spray my dish with baking spray but the butter is what Mama used.

Now take your two cups of black berries (washed good if fresh picked) and spread evenly over the milk,flour and sugar mixture.

Sprinkle the other 1/4 cup of sugar over your pie and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.  Some of you may want more than a 1/4 cup spread over but I find this plenty sweet for my cobblers.

While this is baking clean up your kitchen and check the freezer to see if you have some ice cream or cool whip for your wonderful cobbler. If not no need to worry this cobbler doesn't need anything to go with it but some friends and family to share it with you.

Be sure and come back after you have filled your tummy with this and let me know what you think.
I have to warn you it's hard not to make just one cause it is soooooo delicious.

Mama use to make this using peaches and I boy was that good too. My dad's father had a peach orchard and I loved picking his peaches and taking them to my other set of grand parents so I could have one of her peach cobblers. You can use canned peaches too works just as good or frozen berries.

I just found out a small town not far from here is having a dewberry festival tomorrow. I am thinking it would be fun to go buy some dewberries and try them in this recipe.

I had planned on continuing my stories of the weekend and have lots more to tell about my Sunday but I knew with the weekend coming up you might want this post first. lol

Sending you the best wishes for a beautiful weekend. I must now get off here and see if I can finish mowing one pasture I started this morning.

Love to all
Maggie

This looks delicious and reminds me of my grandmother, mother--well, all the ladies who cooked in my family. It's almost time for berries in my neck of the woods so love having the recipe.

Best,
Bonnie

Got it!!!!

Oh, thank you....can't wait to make it. I will tell you tho, it will be after it cools down so I can be comfortable with the hot oven running....too hot now. Even with AC. LOL

i love this recipe for its simplicity. i can
remember the amounts of ingredients.
it was surprising that you put the berries
on top. i guess the crust puffs up over
them. ?

Angela said...

My mom used to make blackberry and peach cobbler all the time when I was a kid. Her recipe is the same as yours as far as the ingredients except that she melts the stick of butter in the glass pyrex pan in the oven and pours the flour, sugar and milk mixture into it and then adds the berries by dropping them in from the top. Then bake it and it's done. The butter on the outside like that makes the crust nice and crunchy and the inside is soft and bread like. You've got me wanting some cobbler now! lol

That really sounds delish - I wish could eat sweets more than I can! sandie

Shirley said...

Hi Maggie, Your blackberry cobbler sounds so yummy and makes me think of all the cobblers that my mom would make. There is nothing better then homemade cobbler with homemade icecream. Your post is making me hungry and I did eat supper. A belated Happy Birthday because I don't think I told you that. I enjoyed reading about your family. They are very special for us and leave us with a lot of memories. I enjoyed seeing the pictures. You can never have to many. Have a great weekend. Hugs from Your Missouri Friend.

Debbie said...

I have used that exact recipe for 35 plus years and have always gotten wonderful comments from those whom I make it for. My husband absolutely loves it!! So good with blueberries also. I use peaches a lot and sometimes cherry pie filling. Nothing better than this recipe. Thanks for sharing it, Maggie!!! Have a great weekend!!!!

God Bless~
Debbie

This sounds very easy to do. I bet when my crop of red raspberries comes in they would do this cobbler proud! Thanks for sharing and enjoy the festival. I've never had "dewberries".

Arkansas Patti said...

I have a peach tree full of peaches and this looks like a great use for them when they ripen. Can't wait.
My Daddy was the cook in our family. I couldn't pronounce most of what he made but everyone always wanted to eat at our house.

Dr. Kathy McCoy said...

Forty Pound Sack said...

My momma loves a good cobbler, but she can't eat any of the berries with all the seeds. Think I'll try this with some cherries or maybe blueberries. Okay, now I'm hungry!
