Easy Blackberry Cobbler

Saturday, July 21, 2012


Mr. Art @ Home wanted blackberry cobbler for his birthday rather than a cake.  I used the Easy Blackberry Cobbler recipe from the July 2008 issue of Southern Living.

Easy Blackberry Cobbler


4 cups fresh blackberries
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 large egg
1 cup sugar
1 cup all-purpose flour
6 tablespoons butter, melted
Whipped cream (optional)
Garnish: fresh mint sprig


Preheat oven to 375°. Place blackberries in a lightly greased 8-inch square baking dish; sprinkle with lemon juice. Stir together egg, sugar, and flour in a medium bowl until mixture resembles coarse meal. Sprinkle over fruit. Drizzle melted butter over topping. Bake at 375° for 35 minutes or until lightly browned and bubbly. Let stand 10 minutes. Serve warm with whipped cream, if desired. Garnish with fresh mint sprig, if desired.

For a neat presentation, bake for the same amount of time in 6 (8-oz.) ramekins on an aluminum foil-lined baking sheet.

This is what the cobbler looks like when placing it in the oven.

The cobbler was such a huge hit that I am baking another one this weekend!  The key to success is to blend the sugar, flour, and egg into a fine meal consistency.  I used a pastry blender, but if you don't have one use a large fork.

Until next time...

  1. That sounds so good! I just madea mixed berry crisp yesterday, but will have to give this one a try. I'm visiting from Seasonal Sundays

  2. My Dad would love to come to your house when you're serving this. In fact, he would pick the blackberries for you. Each year he and our neighbor seek out the wild blackberry patches in the subdivision and tell each other when it's time to go picking. Although we could probably have more berries, this year we had him bring home only enough berries for 2 cobblers and a few left ofter for smoothies.

    Happy belated birthday to your husband!

  3. Oh, I love cobblers. You remind me to get a move on making them this summer. Great to have you be a part of Seasonal Sundays.
