Easy Blackberry Cobbler

I LOVE COBBLER! There is just something about it’s rustic appearance, simple ingredients & incredible taste that does it for me.

This is my third cobbler I’ve made this week. (I’ll be hitting the p90X workout hard tomorrow) I’m going through a crazy cobbler crave and I just can’t get enough of them! I know fruit cobblers are typically a summer  dessert, but there is just something comforting about cozying up on the couch with a bowl of warm, blackberry cobbler after a savory winter dinner.

They are so simple, easy and quick to whip up. This recipe for blackberry cobbler is one of my favorites because it is fast, pure and has that old fashioned cobbler taste. It has an awesome golden, buttery tasting crust that has a light crunch to the top and a soft, fluffy underside. I could sit and eat the crust all by itself.  The blackberries have the right amount of sweetness and taste great with vanilla ice cream on the side

I’m not sure where this recipe originated from. It’s been in my collection for as long as I can remember. It’s a trusty ol recipe that I’ve never felt the need to tweak. To me, it is a perfect traditional southern cobbler.

My husband will challenge that statement though. Even though he loves this cobbler he prefers his with a double crust and a more pie crust type of crust. If you prefer your cobblers that way as well, then sit tight because I got that baby coming for you!

  1. I made it! This is so good and my husband said in Thomasville, GA they call it BlackBerry doobie! I will be making it again!

  2. This stuff is super easy to make and AMAZING to eat! Thanks for the recipe – we picked wild berries in our woods this morning and enjoyed this recipe for dessert tonight! Yum!

  3. Hey did you used self rising flour or all purpose flour?

  4. I tried this one last night…..SO GOOD! The only variation I did was using cake flour and heavy whipping cream to get that thick, cake-like crust. I also squeezed a bit of lemon juice into the blackberry-sugar mixture. Will be making another this weekend!

  5. This is such a good, homemade warm cobbler!

  6. Could I put this recipe in I don't wanna say cupcake form but I guess cupcake form? Like in a muffin pan with cupcake liners?

  7. I love blackberry cobbler! My folks call it Blackberry Doobie where I'm from, down in Albany.

    It is an actual winter dessert there because we have to cook the whole thing on the stove, simmering for hours and eat it hot. It's the berry version of chicken & dumplings with all that nice blackberry syrup! YUMMY.

  8. Easy Blackberry Cobbler is an excellent recipe specially because I love blackberries and it gives to the cake and delicious flavor, just look at the image here.

  9. I made the cobbler with the peaches and it was GREAT! I used your suggestion and it made a big difference. Next time I would like it to be mor juicy. So I'm thinking I should add more sugar right?

  10. I was looking but I didn't see the recipe for the crust for pie like crust which is what I love as well. Please post soon. I want to try this for the holidays. Thank you for sharing I love everything so far and so does my famiy. I am actually in the kitchen cooking again. I can't tell you enough how much I enjoy everything and don't feel the need to change anything either. Trudy465

  11. Fredmyn that is funny because my husband doesn't like blackberries and he'd much rather have an apple cobbler. I made this and he ate half of the pan and then came home from work with two more bags of frozen blackberries LOL

  12. I am really not even all that crazy gung-ho about blackberries but that looks so freakin' GOOD! I'm trying it soon!

  13. This looks delicious. I'm going to try this tomorrow!!

  14. Yes you can use canned peaches or frozen ones, just thaw them first. I add in sugar (white & brown), cinnamon, ginger, & vanilla to my peaches to give them a lil sassiness.

    I've never used apple pie filling for a cobbler but I sure as heck don't see why you couldn't if it's good for pies! Let me know how it turns out.

  15. I was wondering if I could use can peaches or would frozen b better? And how about can apple pie filling?
