There’s no better or easier way to turn fresh blackberries into a delicious summer dessert than this recipe for Easy Skillet Blackberry Cobbler. Serve with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream for a spectacular summer dessert.
What little baking I do in the summer usually involves fruit. And I especially love cobblers. Peach Cobbler is my favorite, especially this Oatmeal Cookie Peach Cobbler.
Blackberries aren’t my favorite berry. In fact, they are probably my least favorite. But I do really like them and their tart flavor makes for really interesting desserts when combined with plenty of sugar.
Like most cobbler recipes, this one is totally simple. Melt a stick of butter in a cast iron pan. Add a simple batter and scatter the blackberries on top. Place in the oven until golden brown on top. Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and savor every little bite.
So easy. So delicious.
No cast iron pan? Use a 9-inch baking dish instead.
