We were recently given several pounds of blackberries. After eating our fill, I wanted to bake up a tasty treat with the remaining berries. I decided on a wonderful cobbler. Blackberry cobbler is one of my favorite foods!
Cobbler Shortcut Tip
There are lots of good cobbler recipes around. A fast and easy short cut is to mix up a yellow butter cake mix. Grease a 9 x 13 cake pan, then add the fruit to the pan. If your fruit is a bit tart, go ahead and sprinkle some sugar on it. Then top with the mixed cake batter and bake according to cake mix directions.
The berries will rise to the top of the cake as the cake mix cooks. It’s so yummy! This is the quickest, easiest cobbler I know of.
I decided to use my Poor Man’s Cobbler recipe. It is just as easy, can be made with pantry staples, and is very versatile. You can use any fruit you want to in the simple, tasty dessert. I used butter rather than margarine today.
