Simple Southern Blackberry Cobbler

This easy recipe for Blackberry Cobbler was given to my mother years ago, when I was just a girl by a neighbor lady where I grew up in Meriwether County, Georgia. Really, you can substitute any fruit you may have on hand – or even a can of peaches is delicious!

This cobbler recipe is super easy and the perfect quick dessert for a weeknight! It is always a favorite at potlucks, too. Just double the recipe!

The crust is buttery and I personally love the crusty edges. I like to make my cobbler in a cast iron skillet, but a 9 x 13 casserole dish works just fine.

We picked these blackberries from the bushes in our front yard and the girls were excited about eating it! The cobbler was gone in no time.

How to Make Simple Blackberry Cobbler

Ingredients

  • 1 stick butter or margarine
  • 1 cup self-rising flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 cups blackberries, washed {or other fruit}

Step #1: Heat oven to 350 degrees. While the oven is heating, place your stick of butter in your skillet and let it melt and get hot in the oven.

Step #2: Meanwhile, in a mixing bowl, stir together the self-rising flour, sugar, and milk. DO NOT over stir. You want to just bring the mixture together. A few lumps are okay. The mixture will be kind of soupy.

Step #3: Once the butter has melted, carefully remove skillet from oven and pour flour mixture over the butter. DO NOT Stir the batter into the butter. You just want to pour over the top. It’s okay if the edges are not totally even.

Step #4: Add blackberries over the top of the batter, scattering them as evenly as possible. Again, do not stir together.

Step #5: Bake for about 50 – 60 minutes. Be sure to watch the cobbler so you don’t cook it too long. Remove from oven when the top of the cobbler is a pretty golden brown.

Step #6: Allow to cool. It’s delicious!
