Cook Time: 25 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes


  • 2 tablespoons Cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 4 cups blackberries, picked over, rinsed & drained
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons butter, cold, cut in small pieces
  • 1/4 cup boiling water


In a large bowl, stir together the cornstarch and 1/4 cup cold water until cornstarch is completely dissolved. Add 1 cup sugar, lemon juice, and blackberries; combine gently. Transfer to a cast iron skillet, about 8-inches in diameter.

In a bowl, combine the flour, remaining sugar, baking powder, and salt. Blend in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Add 1/4 cup boiling water and stir the mixture until it just forms a dough.

Bring the blackberry mixture to a boil, stirring. Drop spoonfuls of the dough carefully onto the boiling mixture, and bake the cobbler on a baking sheet (line with foil to avoid a mess) in the middle of a preheated 400 degree F oven for 20-25 minutes or until the topping is golden. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.

skillet blackberry cobbler, Member angelakpowell

This is the cobbler my greatgrandma made and all those after her. It is the best by far. The only correction is, place iron skillet on baking sheet, when baking. Hint, don't use a skillet that has not been reseasoned since being used for meat or anything requiring strong herbs or seasonings.
