Old Fashioned Blackberry Cobbler Recipe

Blackberry Cobbler is an absolutely delicious, easy, and impressive dessert that’s perfect for summer baking. Is that enough adjectives for you? It’s crispy and chewy around the edges, and soft and sweet in the middle, loaded with fresh blackberries!

This cobbler recipe only has 6 ingredients, and the prep takes less than 10 minutes! Top this while it’s warm with ice cream and be prepared to eat the scraps right out of the pan!

What You’ll Need

Here’s a quick run-down of the ingredients you’ll need to make this cobbler recipe. Be sure to scroll down to the recipe card below for specific amounts.

  • Blackberries – I recommend using fresh blackberries, but you can use frozen ones if that is all you can find. That being said, fresh berries – especially during the summer months – will have more flavor.
  • Granulated Sugar
  • Self-Rising Flour – If you don’t have this you can make your own. Details below!
  • Milk – Any kind of milk will work.
  • Vanilla Extract
  • Butter

What I Don’t Have Self Rising Flour?

No problem! You can easily make self-rising flour at home. Here’s what you will need:

For each cup of flour, whisk it together with 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon of salt. 

How to Make Blackberry Cobbler

Here’s how to make cobbler – it’s super easy!

  1. Whisk together 1 cup of your granulated sugar, flour, milk, and vanilla until smooth. Then whisk in the butter until combined.
  2. Pour the batter into a well-greased casserole dish. I like to use an 8×12 pan for this recipe.
  1. Then add the blackberries evenly on top of the batter. They will sink in a little bit, which is totally fine!
  2. Sprinkle more sugar on top, which will create a nice crackly topping.
  3. Bake for 55-60 minutes. Serve warm with ice cream!

Serving Suggestions

I love topping cobbler with vanilla ice cream but here are a few other ideas:

  • Dusting of powdered sugar
  • Whipped cream
  • Any other flavor ice cream
  • Caramel sauce

How To Store and Reheat Leftovers

Just cover and refrigerate for up to 3 days! I don’t recommend freezing this, as you lose that crispy, crackly topping as it thaws out.

To reheat, just portion out your serving and microwave it for 20 seconds.

This easy blackberry cobbler will quickly become a favorite! 


  • 12 ounces blackberries
  • 1 1/4 cup granulated sugar, divided
  • 1 cup self rising flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat a 8×12 baking dish liberally with non-stick spray. Set aside.
  2. Rinse blackberries and pat dry. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl whisk together 1 cup of granulated sugar, flour, milk, and vanilla until smooth. Then whisk in the butter until combined.
  4. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Add the blackberries evenly on top of the batter. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 cup of granulated sugar.
  5. Bake for 55-60 minutes until the top is golden and crackly.
  6. Allow to cool slightly and serve warm with ice cream if desired.


Store airtight in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat portions in the microwave.

If you don’t have an 8×12- inch baking dish you can use any 3- quart pan you have. It will work in a 9×13- inch pan, but it will just be thinner.

If you would like to double this recipe I recommend baking two dishes instead of one larger dish.

  1. I doubled this recipe and unfortunately it turned out horribly. The cake part was very tough and way too sweet. The taste otherwise was good. Not sure what went wrong.

    1. Definitely doubling the recipe and allotting for the extra bake time so everything is baked would be the issue. My recommendation to anyone who would like to double the recipe would be to bake two separate dishes. I will note the recipe with this information to help future bakers. Thank you for your feedback!

  2. Excellent! Super easy and fast to make and delicious! Served with vanilla ice-cream. The crust has a nice chewy edge and the amount of blackberries is perfect to keep it moist.
