BlackBerry Cobbler

I love hosting dinner parties, luncheons or any other event where I get to cook for my friends, family and guests. We’ve all been in the place where we’ve exhausted ourselves with the main course and need something simple to serve for dessert. This Blackberry Cobbler is just what you need…simple, easy and delicious! I ran across this BlackBerry Cobbler recipe on a fantastic food blog that got her recipe from The Pioneer Woman and we know her food is easy and delicious, so I had to try it out! I added my own touch so I thought I’d share my little tweak to the recipe here!!

Prep time: 10 minutes, Cooking Time: 1 Hour


  • 1 1/4 cups plus 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 & 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of finely ground sea salt
  • 1 Tablespoon of vanilla extract
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 stick of melted butter
  • 2 cups of fresh blackberries
  • Optional but highly recommended vanilla ice cream for serving


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine 1 cup of flour and 1 cup of sugar in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Add in the milk, melted butter and vanilla, stir well until thoroughly incorporated.
  4. Pour into a buttered 9×13 baking dish (I like to use a pretty one for aesthetics)
  5. Drop the berries evenly into the mix, they will sink a little once it bakes.
  6. Dust 1/4 cup of sugar over the top, set aside 2 tablespoons of the sugar for later.
  7. Bake for 50 minutes, remove from the oven and sprinkle the 2 tablespoons of sugar on top.
  8. Bake for another 10 minutes, or until the top is golden brown.
  9. Serve immediately a la mode!


  • Check on your cobbler from about 40 minutes in, my total cooking time was about 5 minutes shorter than expected.
  • Although best served hot, it’s also delicious room temperature and eaten for breakfast without ice cream the next day (or with if you so desire, haha)!
  • Put this together as you are about to serve dinner, so it’s cooking as you are eating and enjoying your guests. Make sure you set your timer so you don’t forget, that way you can serve it nice and hot!
  • You can sub frozen berries, strawberries, blueberries, peaches or any other fruit you might want to use in a cobbler.
  • Pat your berries dry after rinsing them.

Enjoy this delicious dessert!
