This recipe has been in our family for a long time. We use it for any type of fruit cobbler. Instead of the berries, you could use 1 or 2 cans of canned cherry pie filling. I just used freshly picked berries for this recipe today.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a bowl combine the 1/4 cup sugar and cornstarch. Then mix in the berries. Place the berries in a 13 x 9 baking pan.
  2. In another bowl cream butter and sugar. Add in flour, salt, baking powder, and milk.
  3. Spoon the batter over top of the berries, using a spatula to smooth it out.
  4. Sprinkle a little bit of sugar on top. Bake at 350 for 40-45 minutes.

I think this is more like a black raspberry upside down cake. When I think of a cobbler, I think of something a bit heavier than this. My husband was disappointed because he was looking for the dough to be more like a pie crust. I thought it was good if I thought of it as an upside-down cake.

Kenny and I picked black raspberries this morning and this afternoon we had cobbler. This recipe is great. I did a few modifications - I used 1/2 cup cold butter and cut in to dry ingredients and I used 1 cup heavy cream instead of milk. I greased 2 smaller pans with butter before adding the berries. YUM! Served with vanilla ice cream. YUM again!! Enjoy!

Looks like a good recipe HOWEVER, how many 10 X 6 pans are out there? 9 x 13. 8x8 or 9x9 but don't see many 10 X 6's.
