For the filling:
  • 5 cups fresh or frozen marionberries
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
For the crust:
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed
  • 1/4 cup milk


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) and lightly grease a baking dish.
  2. In a large bowl, gently toss together the marionberries, granulated sugar, cornstarch, lemon juice, and lemon zest until the berries are evenly coated. Let the mixture sit for 10-15 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together.
  3. Transfer the marionberry filling to the greased baking dish, spreading it out into an even layer.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt for the crust.
  5. Add the cold, cubed butter to the flour mixture and use a pastry cutter or your fingertips to cut the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  6. Pour in the milk and stir until the dough comes together.
  7. Drop spoonfuls of the dough onto the marionberry filling, covering it as evenly as possible.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes, or until the filling is bubbly and the crust is golden brown.
  9. Remove from the oven and let the cobbler cool for a few minutes before serving.
  10. Serve the Oregon Marionberry Cobbler warm, and optionally, pair it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream for an extra touch of indulgence.
