Easy, yummy Cobbler

Blackberries are one of my all time favorite fruits. I love when they are perfectly ripe and juicy, and I love them even more when they are baked into a crumbly, buttery, sugary cobbler. 😉

I can think of about 10,000 reasons to make this blackberry cobbler recipe. Just to name a few – it’s simple, delicious, and great served with whipped cream or ice cream. The combination of the cold ice cream and the warm cobbler is downright heavenly!

I’m pretty sure there isn’t a soul who wouldn’t devour this dessert in minutes! Bring it to your next dinner party and get ready to be everyone’s favorite person.

use Fresh or frozen berries

One thing I like about this simple recipe is that you can use either fresh or frozen blackberries. Fresh blackberries can be pricey if not in season, so frozen blackberries to the rescue! Either kind will taste delicious in this cobbler.

BATTER. Using a medium bowl, add the milk, flour, and one cup of the sugar. After those are mixed together, add in the melted butter. That’s it for the batter—so easy! Pour the batter into your 9×13 baking dish.

BERRIES. Drop the blackberries evenly on top of the batter. Take 1/4 cup of the sugar and sprinkle that over the blackberries and batter.

BAKE. Bake the cobbler for about 1 hour. Before the last 10 minutes of cooking time, take it out really quick and sprinkle 2 tablespoons of sugar on top. It will crystalize on top and make it even more divine. When it’s ready it will be a beautiful golden brown and bubbly on top.

What do I do if I don’t have self rising flour? Because self rising flour has a rising ingredient already mixed into it other flours cannot be substituted without also adding a rising agent. You can make your own self rising flour by combining 1 cup all purpose flour with 1 tsp baking powder and 1 tsp salt.

    1. Kristyn Merkley says:

      Perfect! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  9. Mistie says:

    What if you can’t find self rising flour? Can you use regular flour?

    1. Kristyn Merkley says:

      It should, though I haven’t tried. I don’t see why it wouldn’t 🙂

    2. PATRICIA GOMEZ says:

      For every 1 cup of self rising flour you can substitute 1 cup all purpose flour, 1 -1/2 tsp. baking powder, and a 1/4 tsp. of salt.
