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


    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Once oven temperature is reached melt butter in a 9×13 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.

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!
