Easy Blackberry Cobbler

Blackberry cobbler in white baking dish

I was lucky enough to grow up in a time that we actually played outside in the summer . We went out early in the mornings on our bikes looking for adventures. Our subdivision wasn’t completely developed in the 70’s and there were patches of woods. In these woods we would build club houses and play for hours. The best part was the random blackberry patches in small clearings . With plastic cool whip containers in hand we would pick berries until our fingers were blue.  . Now, luckily these berries are easily accessible at local super markets and no foraging required . This Easy Blackberry Cobbler comes together quickly and you will never make it another way! The best thing is if blackberries are not available you can totally make this with frozen berries. If you love to cook with the fruits of summer check out this Fresh Peach Pie.

This is a super easy recipe and if you cook you will most likely have everything on hand to make this summer cobbler . If not a few of these things are easily bought at amazon or even your local Wal-Mart or Target.

Frequently asked Questions :

  • Do you have to use Bisquick? It does not have to be the brand but it has to be similar . A store brand baking mix will work.
  • Fresh or frozen berries can be used for this recipe I just recommend letting the berries mostly thaw before baking. 
  • All ovens are different . Check this after 50 minutes if the top is not golden brown or the center isn’t firm let it bake longer . Check it after 5 minutes . Do not bake over 60 minutes

Believe it or not, I’ve never even tried a blackberry cobbler, which just seems wrong. I just bookmarked your recipe and will be making it with this season’s fresh blackberries. Thanks so much for the great idea!

Like you, my 3 siblings and I grew up outside 99% of the time. We had a large property and also spent our time building tree forts or just messing around in the woods. All along the property line we had blackberry bushes running rampant, so we used to spend hours picking them and our mom would make us blackberry crumble and jam! I’m looking forward to making this recipe this year once the blackberries are ripe 🙂

It was so exciting to read about your memories. Great to hear about the club houses in the woods – it does bring up so many great memories in my mind, too. Fantastic recipe by the way – absolute yum! 😉

I had to laugh at your story. I asked Hubby if he ever went blackberry picking for his mom when he was young. His answer was a lot like yours. He ate them all. LOL! I love rustic desserts like cobblers. They really compliment the berries. Your cobbler certainly is making me mouth water. I’m going to have to check out the Farmer’s Market for the blackberries. I’d love to surprise Hubby with the dessert.

Someone gave me a scone mix as a gift. Do you think I could use that in this recipe?

Blackberries are so underrated, but they make incredible fruit desserts. Your cobbler looks mouthwatering!

Oh my goodness, this looks amazing! We often go blackberry picking in the summer so I’ll have to tuck this recipe away for later.

I am just finishing a warm bowl of this delicious berry cobbler! How am I going to not have MORE! This recipe is a keeper and will be a staple in my kitchen. I used frozen blueberries and frozen mixed berries. (I baked it 55 min), I used mostly diet sugar (just about 1/4 cp of real sugar), and otherwise followed recipe exactly. WOW!
