Easy Blackberry Cobbler Recipe


So far this summer, I’ve gotten two flats of blackberries in my CSA boxes.  I used one to make refrigerator jam (I use this recipe with half blueberries/half blackberries), and I started snacking on the second box.  However, my snacking wasn’t making much of a dent. So I decided to make some cobbler.

However, I don’t love the soupy, runny cobbler that’s typical of fried catfish joints.  And it also tastes too much like canned pie filling. I wanted something fresh and light.

So when I found the Pioneer Woman’s recipe, I knew with a little tweaking it would be perfect. In blogger fashion, I decided to bake it up in my pretty Fiesta bowl for pictures, but you could use a 9 x 13.

Also, I used some hand-made tea towels that we got for a wedding gift as the back drop for the cobbler.  Every woman in my husband’s family has a set of these days of the week towels.  And Monday is under this bowl of goodness.

Easy Blackberry Cobbler

  • 1 Stick (1/2 cup) Butter melted
  • 1 1/2 cup sugar- divided into 1 cup and 1/2 cup
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup milk (I used unsweetened plain almond milk…but any milk will work)
  • 2.5 cups blackberries, washed (fresh or frozen)

Combine the 1 cup of sugar, flour, salt, baking powder, and cinnamon with a whisk. Add the milk, butter, and vanilla and mix until smooth.

Spray your pan well and pour in your batter.  Sprinkle blackberries throughout.  Sprinkle the top with the remaining 1/2 cup sugar.

Bake at 350 for 1 hour (maybe 80 minutes if you’re using a deeper pan like mine).  The edges get crispy and delicious.  It’s perfect.

Best if eaten warm topped with whipped cream. 🙂  Ice cream would work too.

    I LOVE this recipe for blackberry cobbler. I don’t care for typical pie crust, so I was excited to find this version. YUM. Love the tea towels as well!
