Very quick and simple to make. This is our favorite cobbler recipe.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

There's not much better than a cobbler in the summer and this old-fashioned blackberry cobbler is delish. The batter rises around the blackberries creating a cakey crust. If blackberries aren't your favorite, substitute with a different berry. Serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream for a heavenly dessert.

Test Kitchen Tips
Sprinkle the top of the cobbler with a tablespoon of sugar before baking for a caramelized sugary crust.
  • Sifting dry ingredients together.
    Preheat oven to 350-degree oven. Sift the dry ingredients together.
  • Whisking in milk and vanilla extract.
    Gradually whisk in the milk and vanilla to make a thick batter. Let the batter stand for 15 minutes.
  • Sliced of butter in a pan.
    Place the butter in a large shallow metal baking pan; place the pan over low heat to melt the butter.
  • Quickly stirring the batter.
    Give the rested batter a quick stir.
  • Pouring batter over the melted butter.
    Then pour it into the pan over the melted butter. Don't worry if the batter floats around the edges of the batter.
  • Scattering blueberries in the pan.
    Immediately scatter the blackberries over the batter.
  • Cobbler baked until golden brown.
    Bake for about 55 minutes or until the batter is puffed and set around the blackberries. Top with ice cream or whipped cream.
