Quick and Easy Blackberry Cobbler

Yesterday when we did our daily walk-about we were welcomed with blackberries ready to be picked! How wonderful! Neither of us have ever seen blackberries so big before. We are a little proud of ourselves.

Blackberries Ready to Pick Safe Under The Bird Netting



So, we picked a butter bowl of blackberries! It wasn't a lot, but enough for something.  And as you can see we have many more that will be ready soon enough.

So, I decided to whip up a quick and easy blackberry cobbler this evening. If I'm cooking it, it must be quick and easy.

Quick and Easy Blackberry Cobbler Recipe

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 cups whole wheat all-purpose flour
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 cups blackberries

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Once oven temperature is reached melt butter in a 9x13 inch baking pan.
  2. In a medium bowl stir together the flour, sugar, milk, water, and all ingredients except butter and blackberries; batter will be slightly lumpy. Pour mixture on top of melted butter in baking pan. Do not mix butter and mixture together.
  3. Drop blackberries into batter; if  less crust is desired add more blackberries.

Note: If using self-rising flour do not add baking powder and salt.

Prep time: 10 mins
Bake time: 1 hour 10 mins

I am very happy with the way it turned out and it was so good (especially warm). I think I may try adding some cinnamon next time. Yum.

If I can do it, trust me you can. Give it a try!

  1. Okay, you're killing me with these pictures. You know how I love blackberries. Kelly does like blackberries. Is that a sign of some kind of weakness? LOL...Thanks to bush hogging neighbors and Judd who I have mistakenly let clean up everything, I am without blackberries. I have thought about planting vines. I never thought that would be necessary. Hope you day is wonderful. Love ya girl! and Jon..

    1. You know I used to not like them. I still prefer them cooked in something or a jam. Jonathan loves them. Well, last time we were down at the land we had blossoms everywhere. You're welcome to go down there and pick some. We hope to get down there to pick some too, but it hasn't happened yet.

  2. Yum! Blackberries aren't hardy where we live and I miss the days from my childhood when we could walk to the wild patches and pick enough to can and freeze for the winter.

    Thanks for the drool session ;-)

    1. Oh, what a bummer. They grow everywhere wild around here, but we planted some at the house too.

      Glad I could help. :)

    1. We just planted raspberries this year but will not be getting any berries from them this season. That sounds yummy! Most of these recipes can easily substitute different berries in them. Yes, yes happy June indeed!

      Thanks for stopping by!

  7. Wow and Yum. Blackberries actually do grow in Phoenix but I have yet to plant any. I think I may need to remedy that!

    Thanks so much for linking up to the Independence Days Challenge. Hope to see you back this week!

    1. Yum. I think this will work well with about any berries. One of our blueberry bushes got picked clean by birds before we got them netted. I hope to get enough from the other one but we will see. They are only 2 years old so they are not producing a lot yet.

      Thanks for stopping by!

  14. Thanks for sharing this on Natural Living Monday!

    Mmm, this looks fantastic! Your blackberries look great! Does baking the blackberries soften the seeds at all?

    1. Thanks so much. Yes, baking really does a lot. They are barely noticeable. Trust me....I am ashamed to admit it, but I really do not like them fresh because of the seeds. You should give them a try baked for sure!
