Blackberry Pudding will become one of your favorite recipes to make and serve with whipped cream or ice cream.  Serve this blackberry pudding  to your family and guests for a great dessert and you won’t have any left.  I love it for breakfast with coffee in the mornings and  it is good with milk poured over it, too.  I always ate cobbler as a child with milk poured over it and I like this blackberry pudding that way. This is an old fashioned recipe that my family loves.

1 1/4 cups white granulated sugar, divided

6 tablespoons butter, softened

2 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup evaporated milk (can use regular milk)

1 teaspoon almond extract (can use vanilla extract)

2 to 2 1/2 cups fresh blackberries (could use frozen)

2 cups boiling water


In a large mixing bowl with a mixer cream 1 cup sugar with the 6 tablespoons butter.  In a bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt.  Pour the flour mixture into the sugar and butter and continue mixing with mixer. Add the milk and almond extract mixing well.  Spray a 3 quart casserole dish with cooking spray and spread the flour mixture into the bottom of the dish.  Cover with blackberries and sprinkle the remaining 1/4 cup of sugar over the berries.  Bring 2 cups water to a boil and pour over the blackberries. DO NOT MIX. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 55-60 minutes until golden brown on top. Let cool for about 20 minutes before serving.   Makes 8 to 10 servings.  Enjoy!

    1. Hi Gary, Always nice to meet another Kentuckian and happy to have you on the site. I hope you enjoy the recipes and thank you for sharing your memories of your grandmother.

      1. I am from Kentucky as well. My mother-in-law always made this, as well as the blackberry dumplins!’ Love them both still! I love to eat this warm with lots of butter! But don’t tell anyone!

  4. I made this today in two foil 8 1/2 inch cake pans. One for my for an elderly woman who no longer cooks. It came out fabulous..picked up Brusters vanilla ice cream to go with it for her. Thanks for another great recipe!

  5. I have been looking for an old fashion recipe for white bread. My father-in-law used to make the best bread that I have ever eaten.Do you have a good white bread recipe?

    1. The only one on the site is a sourdough bread recipe, Bonnie. You can find it under breads on the right hand side of any page on the website.


  7. Can’t wait to try this, thanks. What do you think about peaches, either frozen or fresh? Or do you have a different recipe for peach cobbler?

    1. There are several cobbler recipes on the site. Look on the right hand side of any page and click on cobblers.

    1. Yes, I think they would Gaile. Some people on FB have made it already using blueberries and it worked fine.

  8. I love your comment about pouring milk over the cobblers…my grandma made a delicious sweet potato cobbler when I was a little girl, and she always poured sweet milk over it when she would take it out of the oven. Your recipes are always good!

  9. Yet another super yummy recipe – I’m going to open a new ‘folder’ on my Pinterest page just for your posts!!

    1. Yes, I think you could use blueberries, Susan. It may take more blueberries though. That is probably the only thing I would do different.
