A combination of the best cobbler recipes I have made. This adaptation is the simplest and tastiest yet.
- 5 cups fresh clean blackberries
- 2 tablespoons triple sec (orange liqueur) or 2 tablespoons Grand Marnier
- 2 cups sugar
- 4 teaspoons cornstarch
- 2 cups flour
- 4 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups milk
- 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup butter, softened or melted
- Preheat oven to 375.
- In a large bowl stir together; berries, liqueur, sugar and corn starch.
- Let sit while you make the batter.
- In an ungreased 11x15" pan stir together well; flour, baking powder, salt, milk, vanilla, melted butter.
- Spread to cover bottom of pan evenly.
- Carefully spoon berry mixture over the batter to cover all.
- Bake for 45 minutes to one hour depending on glass or metal pan.
- I prefer glass as you can see the color of the batter as it cooks.
- Berries should be bubbling and bottom should look golden brown when done.
- Closer to 45-50 minutes for glass, 50-60 for metal.
- Place on a cooling rack for one hour.
- Serve warm with ice cream or cold with whipped cream.
- Is still very good the next day.
I was surprised this was not too sweet. It was perfect. Even my dessert resistant husband approved. It's a keeper.
A very delicious cobbler - the only thing that caused a problem for me was the ungreased pan. It really had to be scraped out of the glass pan - it stuck badly. But it was yummy indeed with a scoop of homemade vanilla!
This recipe has great flavor. Although I did encounter a problem with the consistency, I do believe it was a measuring error on my part. A great way to use up all those blackberries the kids bring home!
