1. Preheat the oven: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish or a similar-sized casserole dish with butter or non-stick cooking spray.

2. Prepare the blackberry filling: In a large mixing bowl, gently toss together the blackberries, granulated sugar, all-purpose flour, lemon juice, and lemon zest until the berries are evenly coated. Transfer the blackberry mixture to the prepared baking dish, spreading it out evenly.

3. Make the topping: In a separate mixing bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut in the cold butter using a pastry cutter or two knives until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Alternatively, you can use your fingers to rub the butter into the flour mixture.

4. Add the boiling water: Gradually add the boiling water to the flour mixture, stirring until a thick batter forms. It’s okay if the batter is a bit lumpy.

5. Assemble and bake: Drop spoonfuls of the topping batter evenly over the blackberry filling in the baking dish. You don’t need to spread it out perfectly; the batter will spread and expand as it bakes. Place the dish in the preheated oven and bake for 45-50 minutes, or until the topping is golden brown and the blackberry filling is bubbling around the edges.

6. Serve and enjoy: Once the blackberry cobbler is done baking, remove it from the oven and let it cool slightly before serving. You can serve it warm or at room temperature, topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream for an extra indulgent treat.
