  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  5. Pour the macerated blackberries on top, distributing them evenly over the batter.
  6. Bake in the oven for 45 minutes to an hour, depending on your desired goldenness. Let it set for 15 minutes.
  7. The bubbling, the aroma, and the golden crust – it’s a marvel in your oven!
  8. Serve warm or at room temperature with warmed cream or fresh whipped cream.
  9. Store at room temperature with foil for 2-3 days or longer in the fridge.


Q1: Can I use frozen blackberries for this recipe?

While fresh blackberries are recommended for optimal flavor, you can use frozen ones if fresh is not available. However, be mindful of excess moisture during maceration.

Q2: Can I reduce the sugar for a less sweet cobbler?

Yes, you can adjust the sugar quantity according to your preference. Keep in mind that it might alter the overall sweetness and texture.

Q3: Can I substitute dairy milk with a plant-based alternative?

Absolutely! Feel free to use almond, soy, or any other non-dairy milk as a substitute.
