Easy Blackberry Cobbler Recipe

by Friend Recipes

I’m always looking for new recipes to add to my repertoire, and blackberry cobbler is a dish I’ve wanted to try for a while now. So, I did a little research and put together my version of the recipe. If you’re looking for an easy way to make a blackberry cobbler that’s guaranteed to be delicious, this is the guide for you. I’ll walk you through every process step, from preparing the ingredients to serving the cobbler. And, of course, I’ll include a full recipe so you can try it yourself.

What Ingredients Do You Have Recipes?

The ingredients for this Blackberry Cobbler recipe are pretty straightforward. For the topping, you’ll need flour, sugar, salt, and butter. And for the filling, you’ll need blackberries, sugar, cornstarch, and cinnamon. Have a look.
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter at room temperature 1 cup all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons sugar, plus more for sprinkling
1 tablespoon baking powder
Pinch of salt
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups (about 12 ounces) of fresh blackberries, rinsed and dried

One important thing to note is that you should use a deep dish pie pan for this recipe, so there’s enough room for all the berries. And another thing to keep in mind is that the blackberries will release a lot of juice as they cook, so you don’t want the topping to be too thick, or it will end up being dry.

What are Cooking Instruments?

When it comes to cooking, I like to keep things simple. I don’t have a ton of fancy cooking gadgets, and I don’t need them. For me, a few basic tools are all I need to make a killer Blackberry Cobbler.

First up is a large pot or Dutch oven. This is where you’ll cook the cobbler filling. I like to use a pool of at least 6 quarts, so I have plenty of room to work. Next, you’ll need an oven-safe dish to put your cobbler in. I like to use a 9×13-inch baking dish for this. It’s the perfect size for a cobbler that serves 8-10 people.

And finally, you’ll need an oven thermometer to ensure your oven is at the correct temperature. This is especially important when baking desserts since ranges can vary quite a bit in their temperature.

What is Cooking Time?

Now, I know many ways to make a cobbler, and everyone has their method that they swear by. But this is how I make mine, and it always turns out delicious. The cooking time will vary depending on how thick you make your cobbler, but generally, it takes about 45 minutes to bake. Keep an eye on it; once the crust is golden brown, it’s ready to come out of the oven.

Easiest Way to Make the Best Delicious Blackberry Cobbler

Making a Blackberry Cobbler is not hard, but a few tricks will help make it even more delicious. For example, using fresh blackberries makes all the difference. Frozen berries will work too, but they won’t be as good.
As far as the method goes, it’s pretty simple. Mix the topping ingredients and spread them over the bottom of your pie pan. Next, mix the blackberry filling and pour it into the pan. Finally, bake it for about 45 minutes. Here are the absolute Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Butter the bottom and sides of an 8-inch baking dish.
  3. Whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl.
  4. Whisk the milk and vanilla extract together in another bowl or glass measuring cup.
  5. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until combined.
  6. Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish and sprinkle with sugar. Scatter the blackberries over the top of the batter.
  7. Bake for about 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cobbler comes out clean. Serve 30 min later with a scoop of ice cream or whipped cream, if desired.

Also, it’s important to ensure the butter and sugar are well combined before adding the eggs and flour. This will help make a nice, fluffy cobbler crust. And finally, don’t forget to let the cobbler cool for at least 30 minutes before serving. This will allow the flavors to meld together and create an amazing cobbler masterpiece!
