Blackberry Cobbler

Please join me for iced tea on the patio today. 

It's too hot for hot tea, even though I always have it for breakfast in the morning.  However, by afternoon, iced is the way to go.  My friend, Rita, at Panoply, wrote to me after I made the Peach and Blueberry Crisp, recipe is here, and told me about the Blackberry Cobbler recipe that Jennifer Garner and her Mom did on her "pretend cooking show".  Of course, I had to make it as berries in all forms,  are my favorite.  Thank you, Rita, for sharing this with me.

My lady head vase always makes me smile.  Her name is Serena, and the poor thing has a crack in her face, but if a keep the water level just right, she doesn't leak.

This Blackberry & Raspberry Fruit Flavored Infusion is so pretty and is perfect for a refreshing drink.  My cut glass pitcher belonged to my Aunt Gertrude, who was my paternal grandmother's sister.

Serving desserts in teacups is always a fun idea.  This pretty teacup with the blackberries is called Lavinia by Royal Worchester.

Blackberry Cobbler

Blackberry Cobbler

This is really good with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or some whipped cream
3 cups fresh blackberries
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon almond flavoring
1 cup flour
1 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg, beaten
6 tablespoons butter, melted
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Spray or butter a 10 x 6" baking pan (I used a 9" square pan).
Place berries in the bottom of the pan and sprinkle with lemon juice and almond flavoring and toss.
Sift dry ingredients together (I just use a whisk), then add egg, and mix. Using clean hands is the best tool for this. Sprinkle this mixture over the fruit.
Drizzle with the melted butter.
Bake for 30-35 minutes.
The recipe didn't say how long to bake this, but I guessed, and mine was done at 30 minutes.
There is some liquid from the berries after baking, but I just served this over the cobbler.

Thank you for your visit!  xo


  1. That sounds yummy and your iced tea looks so refreshing!

  2. I love that you served it in one of your pretty teacups Kitty! Great idea and it sounds delicious! I hope you are safe from Hurricane Beryl...

  3. Looks like a delicious recipe for the cobbler and I like how you serve it in a teacup. Hope you are clear from any bad weather. Happy week Kitty.

  4. I love that you made Pat Garner's cobbler, and how very cute to serve in teacups! Your iced tea sounds like a perfect match. I love that you have your Aunt Gertrude's cut glass pitcher. Poor Serena, but she's not the only one with a crack in her face! We all get them eventually. Have a good week Kitty. Watching the weather for TX family & friends. We are outside the projected path for the rest of this week, and really need some rain.

  5. Your blackberry cobbler looks delicious Kitty, especially served in your pretty teacup and your Taylor’s Blackberry & Raspberry Fruit Flavored Infusion looks so refreshing! It’s way too hot for hot tea here too. I hate to wish my life away, but I’m already counting down the days until October since September still feels like summer here. I had to chuckle at Rita’s comment about Serena’s crack, so true. 😊

    I was checking your weather to make sure you were out of harm’s way from Beryl, so glad you are safe! Enjoy your week and stay cool. ♥

  6. MMMMmmmmmm and blackberries are in season and on sale right now. I think I need to make this! I LOVE a crisp and a cobbler. Just yum. ♥

  7. Your cobbler looks good, Kitty, and so pretty in the teacup. It's warm here this week, too. Love your lady's head vase - we all get lines in our faces as we age, don't we?

  8. Your blackberry cobbler looks delicious!

    I agree that it's fun to serve dessert in pretty teacups! I'm eating ice cream from one of my cute mugs right now. Hehehe!

  9. I've had a ton of berries, but honestly don't know if I've ever had blackberries? Sounds like a very nice treat Kitty:@)

  10. So this is two favorites in row for us, Kitty! I'm the blueberry fan and my husband adores blackberries. Thanks to you we can both have our cobblers and eat them, too!! Haha!!

  11. Kitty, I love blackberries especially in a cobbler. It looks so pretty in a teacup and I just know it is delicious. We have blueberries and I made a blueberry-peach cobbler for the 4th. I agree, it is too hot for anything but iced tea!

  12. With blackberry season and picking coming up I will have to try this recipe.
