Blackberry Cobbler

My friend, Patti, (yes, there’s another one–spelled the same!) and I were discussing blackberries recently, and she requested this recipe. Since hubby and I skipped town today, and I still need to write a blog post, I thought this would get me off the hook suffice. 

Buttery-flavor non-stick cooking spray
4 cups blackberries
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1 cup Bob’s Red Mill whole wheat pastry flour
1/2 cup Splenda baking mix
1/4 c. Egg Beaters or other egg substitute
6 Tablespoons Smart Balance buttery spread, melted

Preheat oven–375 F/191C

Spray 8″ square baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
Put blackberries in prepared dish and sprinkle with lemon juice.

Stir together flour, Splenda baking mix and egg substitute in another bowl until crumbly. Sprinkle over blackberries, and drizzle melted Smart Balance over the topping.

Bake for 30 minutes, or until topping begins to brown and fruit is bubbly.

I prefer pouring milk over it in a serving bowl and eating it while warm, but you could serve it with ice cream or other topping of your choice.

    1. Yes, it’s half splenda and half sugar. It’s sweeter, so if the recipe calls for one cup of sugar, one would use 1/2 cup of the Splenda baking mix. Regular Splenda doesn’t react with other baking ingredients like sugar, so cakes and breads wouldn’t rise properly. They also make a Splenda/brown sugar mix.


  1. Carl’s addition to your recipe made me laugh! (I’m not Italian, but I DO love cheese!)

    A question, Patti…How much regular sugar would I add, instead of Splenda? This looks fantastic!


    1. Cynthia, you would use one cup of sugar. I, too, love cheese. I can’t quite imagine ricotta on blackberries, but it does sound like it would be good on apple.


    1. I had my days mixed up. We went to Fredericksburg after church, Sunday, and got home after midnight. Then I wrote the blog post. Sorry for the confusion, I didn’t know what day it was. 😉


    1. I haven’t changed anything, Carl. Weird. I’ll look at settings to see if something is wrong there. We did have a power outage this morning, and I wonder if it reset itself to the default when it didn’t shut down properly, as I had removed the battery from the laptop. Thanks for letting me know, I’ll check that.
