Texas-Style Fruit Cobbler adapted from Cook’s Country

Posted March 2nd, 2012 in Desserts, Recipe

1 1/2 c. unsalted butter, divided
1 1/2 c. white sugar, granulated, divided
2 tbsp. lemon zest
2 cans Oregon Fruit Blackberries, well drained                                                                                                                                                                                           1 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 1/2 c. almond milk

Preheat oven to 350°. Place 4 tablespoons of butter into a 9″ x 13″ baking dish and bake until butter is melted. Remove from oven and set aside.

Meanwhile, toss 1/4 cup of sugar with lemon zest in a small bowl and set aside.

Whisk flour, baking powder, salt and remaining sugar in a large bowl. Melt remaining butter and whisk, with almond milk and into the flour mixture. Continue whisking until smooth. Pour batter into dish with melted butter (before pouring your batter into your dish, you may want to carefully tilt the dish to ensure that the melted butter is coating the bottom of the dish evenly). Sprinkle blackberries evenly over the batter. Top with lemon sugar. Bake until the edges are golden brown, crispy, and pulling away from the edges of the pan, approximately 45-50 minutes. Cool for several minutes and serve warm.

YEILD:  approximately 8-10 servings

  1. I am looking for recipes to add to my collections.
    I cook and bake for my church and other community groups ,such as the Masonic Temple – the Scottish Rite and my several bowling groups I bowl with.
    however when I find them on line to print ,I am at a handicap a little . my eyesight is not that bad but I am 83 and find most recipes are printed in smaller than would be ordinary print size.
    I like them a bit larger and bold in print . the size I am typing to you is readily acceptable for me and easy to read even without my glasses which I wear only for reading .
    I would like for starters a blueberry muffin recipe and a blueberry pound cake and be able to see other recipes including a blueberry cobbler recipe . could you ? would you be so kind to help me with this searcch . I am ;

    • Hi William,

      Sorry to take so long to reply but I was on vacation last week. I am going to see what I can come up with. We may have a cookbook still around in hard copy that will work for you. I will be in touch!
