Blackberry Cobbler

Blackberry Cobbler
It is still berry season in Oregon.  Blackberries are the latest berries to ripen along with the fall raspberries.  The blackberries grow wild along the roads, in the parks and even in people’s backyards.  In fact some people spend a lot of time and effort trying to get rid of the wild blackberries in their yard.  They can literally take over! There are dozens of blackberry bushes lining the road by my house.  But since I prefer my blackberries not be infused with car fumes I bought mine at the Farmer’s Market this weekend.

My friend Laurie from Seattle recently sent me her recipe for blackberry cobbler that she promised was always a hit.  Of course it is even better with vanilla ice cream!  I love the blackberries but I also really love the crunch cobbler topping! Blackberry Cobbler So Sunday night I gave it a try.  Not only is it super easy, it is just as delicious as she promised!  Beside the blackberries there are only four other ingredients.  We had a couple of friends from church stop by so we shared with them and they both asked for the recipe  (good sign it’s a keeper!)

You could really use almost any kind of  fruit or combination of fruits.  It would be great with raspberries, marionberries, blueberries, etc.   Laurie says they especially like  peaches and blueberries together – get creative!

Making a cobbler is easy.  Just fill the bottom of your dish with about 3 cups of fruit.

Make a crumb mixture out of flour, sugar and egg.

And sprinkle this over the top of your berries and drizzle it with melted butter.

Then just pop it in the oven and bake until nice and bubbly and golden brown. Serve warm.

    You are amazing! Th LOVE berry pies/cobblers. Idaho doesn’t have the blackberries like the coast does. Bummer! I will have to settle with frozen berries. I am willing to sacrifice. :) You are always sharing the most yummy stuff! I like how you think/cook!

    We picked blackberries there in Portland when we were visiting a few weeks ago. Except for the thorny bushes (ouch!) it was a blast and I made my in-laws a blackberry pie…although this easy blackberry cobbler looks heavenly (and I love the cinnamon whipped cream!).

    This is my mom’s recipe for Peach Crunch. It is great with apple or cherry also. We always used canned fruit, but fresh or frozen is even better. Just don’t use pie filling as it tends to burn (trust me). Anyway I have never seen anyone else use this recipe, but I always get raves over it. I like to stick it in the oven as we sit down to eat. Then it is ready to serve warm when dinner is over.

    Oh man, I’m newly preggie with #2 & anything sweet is catching my eye these days – this looks so delish!! Fresh berries are ridiculously overpriced here (N. CA) so I typically have to do frozen, but I love the whipped cream recipe – scrumptious!!

    I’m glad you enjoyed the cobbler recipe! I’m anxious to try the cinnamon whip cream with it. Here’s a little blackberry picking tip: Wear sturdy (thick) gardening gloves and use a long handled pair of pruners to clip the branches away from the bush. I do the clipping then hand the branches to my kids who carefully pull off the berries and drop them in our berry bowl. We get a lot fewer scratches this way.

    I love your website! I have tried several of your recipes, and they are all amazing. Thanks so much for sharing all of your special feelings about being a Mom. My husband and I are expecting our first baby in January. Your thoughts have put many of my fears to rest and helped me regain confidence and excitement about being a Mom. Also, I was looking back at your Easter post and you mentioned that your Mom made great orange rolls, can I have the recipe for those? Thanks so much!
