Blackberry Cobbler with Sweet Corn Biscuits

Get yourself to your local market, find the sweetest corn and juiciest blackberries, and make this asap!

Trust me. This Blackberry Cobbler is summer on a plate! Juicy, tart, berries and sweet buttery biscuits full of tender sweet corn. It just works.

This time of year I’m all about what’s in season and this my friends is the best. It’s a quick summer dessert that can be made in advance, popped in the oven before dinner and baked up in just 30 minutes. The berries are nice and tart, and these to-die-for biscuits are the perfect combo of sweet and savory.

(Wouldn’t they also be wonderful on their own with jam or dipped into a bowl of summer chowder??) I can’t wait to try… Or even on a peach cobbler instead. Wouldn’t that be fabulous?

Blackberry Cobbler with Sweet Corn Biscuits

Yield: 6 - 8 servings


For the filling:

  • 5 cups blackberries
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons instant tapioca (or cornstarch)*
  • juice of 1 lemon

For the biscuits:

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 cup of fresh sweet corn, mashed up a bit with a fork
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 oz unsalted butter, cold and cut into small chunks
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1 egg yolk
  • coarse sugar for sprinkling
  • Ice Cream or Whipped Cream for serving


  • Preheat oven to 400F.
  • Light grease a 9x9 square baking dish (or something similarly sized.)
  • In a large bowl toss together the berries, sugar, tapioca and lemon juice. Set aside.
  • In another large bowl- stir together the flour, baking powder and salt. Stir in the sweet corn.
  • Use your hands to blend the butter into the flour mixture, spreading the clumps until the pieces are about pea-sized.
  • Add the the milk gradually, folding it into the dough. Don't over mix!
  • Turn the dough onto a lightly-floured surface and knead gently for a minute or until dough is cohesive. (don't mix too much- just make sure there are no unblended dry bits.)
  • Use a biscuit cutter to stamp biscuits out of the dough. Arrange the biscuits over the berries. Brush the tops with the egg yolk and sprinkle with sugar.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the berries are burst and bubbly, and the biscuits are golden.
  • Notes

    * Instant tapioca is the best thickening agent for berries like blackberries that release a lot of water when baked. If you don't have it, feel free to use corn starch, just know the filling will be more juicy.

    1. You’re killing me with how fabulous this is! I love including corn in desserts and this reminds me of the corn and blackberry ice cream I made last summer…that was amazing and I bet this is just as delicious.

    2. The goal is always to prevent an optical train wreck and instead gain a natural and smooth transition between two or
      three patterns. Coordinating colors merans matching
      two different olors which are well together. If you are interested in a casual look then pair your v neck shirt using a cotton scarf.

    3. Thank you for this great recipe, Audra! I’ve never had a cobbler with sweet corn biscuits on top before. I’m going to change that stat the nearest time. This looks amazing! I can just imagine the flaky and buttery biscuits on top of those sweet and gooey berries. Wonderful!

    4. Blackberry cobbler is my favorite and I have to say the sweet corn biscuits make it extra delicious. This was an easy dessert and the whole family loved it.
