For the filling:

  • 5 cups fresh blackberries
  • juice of ½ lemon
  • zest of ½ lemon
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 ½ tablespoons cornstarch

For the biscuits:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ tablespoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 grated stick unsalted butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ cup whole milk


  • Preheat the oven to 375°.
  • Filling: Add all of the ingredients together in a large bowl and gently fold to mix until combined. Refrigerate until needed.
  • Biscuits: In a separate large bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, and sugar until completely combined. Gently fold in the grated butter until mixed in.
  • In a separate medium-size bowl whisk together the eggs and milk until completely combined and add it to the dry ingredients bowl and mix until just combined.
  • Add the blackberries to a 10x7 casserole dish and flatten out using a spatula.
  • Using 2 spoons drop 3 tablespoon size dough biscuits right over the top of the blackberries in the casserole pan. Repeat the process until 12 total biscuits are laying over the top of the blackberries.
  • Bake in the oven at 375° for 50-60 minutes or until browned on top and the biscuits are cooked through.
  • Cool slightly before serving with optional ice cream and caramel.


Chef Notes:
  • Make-Ahead: You can make this up to 1 day ahead of time. Serve cold or reheat before serving.
  • How to Reheat: Cover with foil and bake in the oven at 350° for 15 to 20 minutes or until hot. You can also take your desired amount and cook in the microwave on a microwave-safe plate or bowl until hot.
  • How to Store: Once cooled to room temperature, cover and keep in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. It will freeze well covered for up to 2 months. Thaw for 1 day in the refrigerator before reheating.
  • For both the blackberries and biscuit dough, you’ll know when it is mixed enough when there is no visible sign of dry cornstarch or flour.
  • Other options for pans can be a 9x9 or a 13x9.
