Marionberry Cobbler is one of my favorite ways to use my favorite berry. If you don’t have marionberries where you live, just substitute blackberries. Either way, you will love this Marionberry cobbler recipe.
Berry season is in full swing here in Oregon! My favorite time of year. Fresh strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, loganberries, and marionberries. All ripe and ready to enjoy.
We had friends over for dessert this weekend and we sat in the backyard enjoying the beautiful summer weather. Having just been to the farmer’s market the day before, I had a refrigerator full of fresh berries. I had a hard time deciding what to make for dessert.
I had just made Marionberry cobbler the week before. Usually I have a rule not to repeat a recipe quite so soon. But I was still dreaming about this cobbler. Warm and soft on the inside and crisp and sweet on the top. Yum! Also, I had all the ingredients on hand – flour, sugar, butter, milk and marionberries. Simple yet delicious. So I decided to go ahead and make Marionberry Cobbler again! It was so good that I am glad I broke my rule!
My favorite part is the sugar you sprinkle over the top right before baking and right before it comes out – it gives it that extra sweetness and crispness that I love.
Best berries for cobbler
For the marionberry cobbler, I used marionberries which we grow here in Oregon. A marionberry is a combination of a raspberry and a blackberry. You can use raspberries, blueberries, blackberries or any wonderful combination there of.
Of course, at our house, marionberry cobbler MUST be eaten warm and with ice cream. Vanilla ice cream is my favorite. If you want to get fancy, whip up a batch of vanilla ice cream using my favorite ice cream recipe.
