This cobbler is very easy because it uses scone mix instead of flour. All you need to add is milk, oil, sugar, water, scone mix and your blackberries.
It might seem like a lot of water but when mixed with the berries and sugar, it turns into a syrup and once cooked, it basically turns into a jam. If using tinned or frozen sweetened fruit, omit the sugar and use juice instead of water.
I made this today with a bunch of blackberries I had to use. Like one of the other reviewers, this recipe is UNGODLY sweet.. I would reduce the sugar in the water mixture to 1/3 of a cup. I would also add cinnamon and maybe some vanilla to the cake mix. Its good, dont get me wrong, but my teeth hurt from eating it!!! - 31 May 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
For requiring so few ingredients, this cobbler was awesome! I added some cinnamon to the blackberries, and cut the water back to 3/4 cup. Served warm with vanilla ice cream. Thanks, AshleyElaine, for the recipe. I'll definitely be making this again! - 22 May 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This is a great recipe and I make it a lot in the summer using berries and other fruits of the season. Easy and simple. I do not use as much sugar as called for, as we prefer a cobbler that is not quite so sweet. - 16 Jun 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
