Blackberry Scone Cobbler

Makes 1 cobbler

Popular during the second world war, the scone like topping of a cobbler works well on both sweet or savoury dishes. If you can gather wild blackberries from the hedgerow, why not make this into a lovely autumn treat and serve warm with cream or custard.

I love this recipe. I make bramble jelly this time of year to gift to family and friends and always pick enough blackberries for a few desserts. This cobbler is so easy to make and has less calories than a crumble. We’ve tried it warm and cold, and with cream, custard and ice cream - always a hit! Thank you Doves Farm.
