  • 8 cups Fresh or frozen blackberries (partially thawed if frozen) 
  • ¾ cup Sugar 
  • 2 tbsp. Instant tapioca, finely ground 
  • ½ tsp. Table salt 
  • ¼ cup Fresh orange juice


  • 1 cup All-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp. Baking powder
  • ¼ tsp. Table salt


  • 1 Stick unsalted butter (8 Tbsp.), softened
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla extract
  • Minced zest of 1 orange
  • Vanilla ice cream (optional)
  • Fresh mint (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • For the filling, toss together berries, ¾ cup sugar, tapioca, ½ tsp. salt, and orange juice in a large bowl. Transfer berry mixture to a 2½-qt. rectangular or oval baking dish (about 2-inches deep).
  • For the topping, combine flour, baking powder, and ¼ tsp. salt in a small bowl.
  • Cream butter and 1 cup sugar in a large bowl with a hand mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy, 3–5 minutes.
  • Add eggs, vanilla, and zest; beat on medium speed until combined, then beat in flour mixture until a moist dough forms. Spoon dough over berries.
  • Bake cobbler until juices are thick and bubbly and topping is golden brown, about 1¼ hours. Let cobbler cool on a rack at least 1 hour. Serve cobbler with ice cream and garnish with mint, if desired.
