Preheat oven to 200 C / Gas 6. Line a baking tray with aluminium foil.
In a large bowl, mix the flour, 100g of the sugar, baking powder and salt. Rub in butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in 60ml boiling water from the kettle just until mixture is evenly moist.
In a separate bowl, dissolve the cornflour in cold water. Mix in remaining 200g sugar, lemon juice and blackberries. Transfer to a cast iron frying pan, and bring to the boil, stirring frequently. Drop dough into the frying pan by spoonfuls. Place frying pan on the foil lined baking tray.
Bake 25 minutes in the preheated oven, until dough is golden brown.
