Lily's Blackberry Cobbler

We have been blessed with an abundant crop of blackberries around the wooded areas of our neighborhood.  On an "after dinner" walk with Canon and Lily, we picked a bounty of juicy plump blackberries just begging for something special.  Last night, Lily helped to transform these blackberries into a fabulous cobbler.  That tells you how simple this recipe is.
This recipe can be used with any type berries, even a bag of frozen mixed berries. If you use the frozen type, be aware that you may need to cook them just a bit longer.  So basically, this is a throw together dessert made up of pantry and freezer "staples" that you probably have on hand this very second!  This makes it perfect for unexpected guests, etc. You just mix it together, throw it in the oven, and after you've had time to clear the dinner plates, dessert is ready for a big scoop of icecream and a house full of little purple mouths! :-)

Just remember the 1:1:1 ratio and you can change the quantities as you need to.


  • 1 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 cup self rising flour 
  • 1 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 4 Tbsp butter, melted
  • a bunch of juicy berries!


Step-by-step
1 1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 cup self rising flour
1 1/2 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla

Melt butter in the bottom of a baking dish.


Pour the batter over the butter.  The butter will come up around the sides of the batter and make it crispy, crunchy, and golden!
Add the fresh or frozen berries right over the batter. As little or as liberally as you like.  There is no need to even mix them into the batter.  The batter will cook up around the berries as it rises.  This is SUPER simple!



Bake for about an hour.


Serve with ice cream! Woo hoo!
