My mom made Blackberry Cobbler yesterday with the berries from her garden. I have been eating this cobbler for as long as I can remember. It came from a cookbook that was put together by neighbors in our neighborhood in Houston. I have made this vegan before with margarine and soymilk and it was just as delicious. This cobbler has a cake like consistency and is a real crowd pleaser. Enjoy!
