How to make blackberry cobbler from scratch

  1. First you melt a stick of butter in a baking dish. 
  2. Then you combine your dry and wet ingredients to make a sweet batter. 
  3. Next you add the blackberries on top of the melted butter.
  4. Finally top the butter and blackberries with your batter, and bake until golden.

Can you use frozen blackberries in this cobbler?

Yes! You can use frozen blackberries in this easy cobbler recipe! Defrost them preferably overnight in the refrigerator or you can do it at room temperature or defrost them in the microwave. Be sure to strain off any excess juice.

Just be sure to place them in a bowl before defrosting! Otherwise you will have blueberry juice EVERYWHERE. I promise, it is not easy to clean up from your fridge or countertop!

Can I make this cobbler recipe with a different fruit?

I kind of have the corner on fruit creativity with this recipe, but I guess I’ll allow it. 😉 Yes, you absolutely can use a different fruit, especially a different berry like raspberry or blueberry or even a sweet cherry would be absolutely delicious!

Does this blackberry cobbler need refrigerated?

Cover your blackberry cobbler with plastic wrap or tin foil and it can last on the counter for 12 hours. Anything longer than that and I would refrigerate it (covered).

I placed our blackberry cobbler leftovers in the refrigerator overnight and had a piece cold and served with a vanilla Greek yogurt for breakfast and I’m not gonna lie, it was amazing!

There really isn’t a wrong way to enjoy this homemade blackberry cobbler recipe!

I love it’s buttery sweetness paired with a strong cup of coffee–either pairing is delicious! Or don’t pick between the two and just enjoy some coffee, cobbler and ice cream all together!

My best advice when eating this cobbler is to slow down and savor it fully!
