Easy Blackberry Cobbler

A couple of weeks ago I shared a recipe for rhubarb cobbler. It was SO good that I wanted to try it again but with a different filling. Since blackberries are one of my favorites when it comes to pies, crisps, cobblers, etc., I decided to try a blackberry cobbler!

I’m so glad I did because it turned out wonderfully and was just as delicious. The only major change that I did was to swap out the rhubarb for blackberries (obviously) and decrease the amount of sugar used. Rhubarb is really tart and not very sweet, so the extra sugar was a must.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Can You Make This Gluten Free?

You bet you can! I actually tried a gluten-free version of this recipe and it turned out beautifully. Just substitute a 1-to-1 baking mix for the flour. I used and recommend Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free 1 to 1 Baking Flour

Can You Make This with Other Fruit?

Go for it! In fact, my mom had success using peaches and blueberries with this recipe. You could also try:

  • mixed berries,
  • apples,
  • plums,
  • strawberries,
  • and the list goes on!

For me, recipes like this one are quintessentially summer comfort food. It’s a dish I ate as a kid and will continue to enjoy forever. Plus, it’s one of those recipes you can quickly whip up for a weeknight dinner dessert or late afternoon snack with friends.

Let’s get baking!

  1. Bake for 38-42 minutes or until the topping is golden brown and the filling is bubbly. 
  2. Serve with freshly whipped cream or ice cream.

Recipe Notes:

Be sure to use a deep-dish pie dish. (You can find the one I used HERE.) Cobblers bubble, so you want to make sure there’s room for expansion. If you don’t have a deep-dish pie dish, an 11×7 pan will work perfectly. I also recommend adding a sheet pan or piece of aluminum foil to the rack below this cobbler just in case anything bubbles over.

And that’s it, you’re ready to dish up this amazing blackberry cobbler.

As you can see, I served mine with homemade whipped cream (get my easy recipe for whipped cream HERE), but know that vanilla ice cream would be just as scrumptious! If you’re serving this for a dinner and want it to feel a bit elevated, I recommend serving it in some footed glassware and garnishing it with fresh mint as I did here. You can find the glass bowls that I used HERE.

That’s a wrap on this blackberry cobbler. Enjoy and happy baking!
