Southern Blackberry Cobbler

Southern Blackberry Cobbler

img_4268Any cobbler can be summed up in a few descriptive words: “Southern” and “YUM” both come to mind when I think of any cobbler, but especially blackberry.

I found this recipe from Key Ingredient. A lot of cobbler recipes I’ve found use Bisquick, which I currently don’t have on hand and hardly ever use. This recipe has ingredients I usually have on hand, so I decided to use this one and I’m so glad I did!  I adapted the original recipe for a 9″x13″ pan because who needs a small pan?


  • 3 3/4 cups fresh blackberries, washed
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 stick unsalted butter, melted


  1. In a large bowl, stir together berries and sugar and let it sit out for 25 to 30 minutes.
  2. When the blackberry mixture has been sitting for about 20 minutes, preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  3. In a bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and milk with a wooden spoon. Stir in the melted butter and hand mix until the ingredients are well incorporated and you have few clumps.
  4. Pour batter into a 9″x13″ baking dish and smooth out. Pour the blackberry mixture on top and evenly distribute over the batter without stirring into the batter.
  5. Bake at 375 degrees for 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until golden on top. Remove from the oven and let sit for about 15 minutes. Serve warm or room temperature with warmed cream or fresh whipped cream.
