Blackberry Cobbler

Preheat oven to 375F.




Biscuit topping-

2 cups whole wheat flour

2 1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. nutmeg

1/2 cup {one stick} unsalted butter, chilled.

1 large egg, slightly beaten

2/3 cup of milk


6 cups of blackberries {I had some black raspberries that I mixed in too}. The can be fresh or frozen.

3/4 cup sugar

2 tbsp. cornstarch


100_0750  Combine the flour, baking powder, salt, & nutmeg together.


Cut the cold butter into pats, & then cut them into the flour using your fingers, a pastry blender, or the metal blade of a food processor {I used my fingers}, until the largest pieces of butter are the size of a pea. Mix in the brown sugar quickly.


Beat the egg with the milk & add to the flour mixture all at once. Mix gently, just until combined; the dough will be a bit wet and sticky. Let the dough rest while you make the filling.


In a separate bowl  measure out the berries. Combine the cornstarch & sugar together & then add to the berries. Sprinkle over the fruit and gently mix together thoroughly. Let set for a few minutes while you lightly butter your 9x9” square {or circle} baking dish.


Generously dust your work surface with flour & then turn the dough out onto it. Flour your hands & then pat the dough into a circle approx. 3/4-1 in. thick. Using a well floured biscuit cutter, cut the biscuits & ‘cobble’ them together on top of the blackberries.


Using a well floured biscuit cutter, cut the biscuits & ‘cobble’ them together on top of the blackberries. Sprinkle the top with sparkling sugar, if you wish. 100_0771 Place the pan in the oven & bake the cobbler until the top is browned & the fruit is bubbling & thickened, 40-45min.


 Bon Appétit


*Taken from King Arthur Flour Whole Grain Baking cookbook. Biscuit recipe was their Peach-Blueberry Cobbler recipe & the filling was their Blackberry Grunt recipe…all combined by me to make a blackberry cobbler.
