Every year I try to make Blackberry Cobbler for our Independence Day Celebration. This year was by far the best cobbler I’ve made in years! One year I experimented with making the cobbler in a cast iron skillet on our smoker. It seemed like a cool idea but the bottom of the cobbler burned and ruined it! Nobody likes burned fruit!
I took no chances this year and stuck to the traditional way of preparing this recipe in my oven. It just so happens that blackberries in Tennessee are usually ripe the week before July 4th, and I was keeping an eye on them just waiting for the opportunity to pick enough to make us a cobbler for our celebration. After a few successful trips to pick berries at Sanctuary Ridge Farm, I finally had enough!
My Grandmother gave me this recipe many years ago. She called it Quick Cobbler and used it with a variety of fruits. If you use it with peaches or apples, I would prepare the fruit with the cornstarch and sugar but add 2 tablespoons of butter and cook for 10-15 minutes in a saucepan before pouring it into the 9×12 pan and adding the cobbler batter to bake. Berries are so small, they don’t need the extra cook time like peaches and apples. Sometimes I double the batter because everyone wants extra crust in our family! I imagine this is a recipe that has been passed down from generation to generation because it is easy and doesn’t require a lot of ingredients. Enjoy this little blast from the past!
Quick Blackberry Cobbler
An old-fashioned, easy and delicious Blackberry Cobbler. This will take you back to your Grandmother's kitchen!
In a large mixing bowl, combine the berries, cornstarch and sugar. Fold gently with a spoon to mix it without crushing the berries. Pour this mixture into a 9×12 inch pan. Set aside.
Cobbler Batter Directions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a separate mixing bowl, combine 1 Cup Sugar, 1 Cup Self Rising Flour, Vanilla extract and Milk. Using a whisk, mix until all clumps are gone. Pour this mixture over the berries. Do NOT stir the berries into the batter! It seems wrong, but just pour the batter into the pan and immediately put it in the oven to bake for 40-50 minutes, or until golden brown.

With the recent harvest of blackberries, I was determined to use them in creative ways. So far I have made blackberry jam, blackberry cobbler, and Blackberry Crumble Muffins. We love muffins for breakfast and these were a cinch to throw together. I love muffins with crumble topping! These are so, so good! I hope you enjoy them as much as we have!

Blackberry Muffin perfection! The touch of lemon adds a wonderful brightness to these. If you love blackberries, give these a try!
