I also made some strawberry/blackberry cobbler on Sunday.

1. Could you share the recipe?

2. Which fruits would you recommend to someone who really doesn't like sweet things? The ones I actually like are: lemons and young apples or plums as far as sweetness goes. Would these work in a cobbler or are they too moist?

The recipe was basically this, but with double the flour (I didn't use self rising) and probably thrice the fruit.

It's such a simple recipe, it's easy to customize to taste. If you're using a sweeter fruit, cut back on the sugar in the batter.

I wouldn't think that those would be too moist. Peach cobbler is pretty good. Most of the juices will have enough time to cook down, and the remainder will work their way into the batter.

I also just realized that I used blueberries, not blackberry. I made it at the inlaws', and mindlessly tossed in the bowl of fruit they'd set aside for the cobbler.
