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.

  1. Excellent and easy. My oven temperature is accurate and I followed the recipe exactly, using fresh picked blackberries. Still, I ended up baking this in my cast iron skillet for an extra 20 minutes, nearly an hour. Will make again!

    Boy, was this an easy dessert to make and an excellent cobbler with the blackberries that I picked this week !!

  3. The only blackberry cobbler recipe I use anymore. My entire family absolutely loves this! The cinnamon gives it that little extra something that makes it stand out from the rest.

  4. So easy! Works with oat milk and frozen berries too (all I had in the house). Very adaptable recipe that could be used with a variety of fruits!
