Simple Blackberry Cobbler Recipe


Nessa is a full time wife and mother of two. She loves stirring up new creations in her country kitchen. Catch her on Twitter @Nessa_TX or check out her original recipes on her site What’s Cookin’.

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.

Simple Blackberry Cobbler


  • 1 stick butter or margarine
  • 1 c. milk
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 1 c. flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 2 pounds of blackberries





1.  You start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees.






2.  Then, add the butter to the pan and let it melt in the oven while it’s preheating.

3.  While the butter melts, mix the dry ingredients well, then blend in milk.




4.  Poor batter over melted butter, then top with the fruit.

5.  Cook for 35 to 45 minutes.

That’s all there is to it!

    We have tons of wild blackberries growing and was SO excited to do some cobbler. Problem? Went away for 2 weeks when they ripened and now they are gone….so sad. :)

    I made this on the weekend and people loved it. But I do think there should be more batter.
