Rather than breaking a sweat over the perfect pie crust and lattice top for your farmers' market blackberries, use them up in a hassle-free cobbler. All you need are fresh berries plus 5 more ingredients to whip up this Easy Blackberry Cobbler recipe. To make it special, top with freshly whipped cream or vanilla ice cream, and a mint garnish. If you are not serving it immediately, keep the cobbler and any desired toppings separate as to avoid getting them soggy. Simple as it may be, this quick and easy recipe is an exceptional entertaining dessert, especially for your next summer cookout.

How to Make It

Step 1

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.

Step 2

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

Chef's Notes

Serve this cobbler after your guests enjoy a simple, but impressive summer slow-cooker dish. This dish is vibrant and sweet. It would also be a perfect dessert for Easter dinner. This is a dish the entire family will enjoy. Swap out the blackberries for strawberries or peaches, if you please.

Loved by all!

I made this easy, delicious recipe early this morning...4th of July. I had an abundance of assorted fresh berries that needed to get used. Blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, and strawberries combined made this cobbler one of the best it have baked and eaten. I read one of the reviews that stated the crumb mixture was a wet mess. Based on my experience with this recipe I am of the thought that the baker mixed the egg AND the butter into the dry ingredients which would surely create a sticky mess! The dry ingredients and the egg did indeed make a lovely, dry, crumbly mixture. I added a light sprinkling of cinnamon on the top before popping it into the oven. The house smelled heavenly! This recipe is a keeper!! I look forward to making it again with other fruit. Give this great recipe a go. You will not be disappointed!

** I wanted to clarify that I added the cinnamon to the flour mixture!

Loved this and have used this recipe for many years. Almost any fruit or berry works well in this. I have used blackberries, blueberries, apples and peaches, and all have turned out well. I have also used self rising flour which produced a crispy, biscuit-y like topping, which I liked even better.

This is just for cooking

Was very easy to make I did not get a sticky mess. I believe others may have used extra large or jumbo eggs. I used one large egg, the 5 dozen box from Wal-Mart. I did not have the butter lake either I poured over the whole dish. Will post after taste

This is a Keeper

I really wasn't sure about this recipe but others weren't giving me enough berries and were a bit too sweet and dry.  I took a chance and  it's most certainly the best I've had since leaving home.   Quick, easy with just enough texture for a curst.  

Thank you so much!

Big Hit!

I fixed this last night for company and everyone raved about it. The no milk batter had me a little concerned, but, it was great. As suggested, I put 2 TBS of raw sugar over the berrys (and used it in the batter) and cut the butter back to 4 1/2 TBS. I let it sit for 30 minutes before baking which gave the butter time to absorb into the batter. No pooling. Also cooked it 50 minutes to brown it a little more.This is now my go to cobbler recipe!

Crowd pleaser

A great way to use all those berries from the blackberry bush. Delicious and so easy. I've made it twice in the past week. I added about 1 Tbsp cinnamon and crumbled a little brown sugar on top before baking. Served with whipped cream, or ice cream if you want to be super naughty! So good!

So easy

Super easy recipe. I did add a bit of sugar to the berries & lemon juice and I added pumpkin pie spice on top then broiled it quickly to finish. Amazing!

Excellent and EASY!
