Guys, I’m not much of a baker. I say it all the time. I don’t have the talent, patience, or desire for it.
But this recipe is amazing and requires absolutely no baking skills of any kind.
You have just met the best easy brunch idea guys.
Let’s go over some really easy FAQ.
See recipe card at the bottom of post for quantities and full instructions
- Self Rising Flour- it contains a leavening agent that helps make baked goods rise. It’s often used to make biscuits and other fluffy baked goods.
- Whole Milk
- Blackberries– fresh or frozen
- Vanilla Ice Cream– for serving, optional
Homemade Self Rising Flour
- 1 + 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon of salt for each cup of flour.
How to Make The Pioneer Woman’s Blackberry Cobbler
- Combine the 1 cup sugar and 1 cup self-rising flour. Add 1 cup whole milk and 1/2 stick melted butter.
- Add to a (9 x 9) casserole dish and top with 2 cups blackberries.
- Sprinkle 1/4 cup sugar on top and bake at 350° F for 50 minutes.
- Add 2 Tablespoons sugar and bake for 10 more minutes.
- Serve with vanilla ice scream and serve.
Using Frozen Berries
- Frozen berries work well in this recipe as well, be sure to add them when they’re frozen. If you let them thaw, they’ll be mushy and the consistency will be off.
Alternative Berry Options
or use a combination of several!
How to Store Leftover Cobbler
- Baked Cobbler can be covered and stored at room temperature for up to 3 days, or in the refrigerator for up to a week.
Freezing Leftover Cobbler
- This Cobbler can be frozen and it’s best if you do so after it’s been baked due to the leavening agent in the flour.
- To reheat, let it thaw overnight and bake it in a covered oven-safe dish at 350° until heated through. The amount of time will depend on how much you’re heating.
- You can also reheat in the microwave.
Best Pan Sizes For This Recipe
- A 9 x 9 inch pan works well for this recipe. If using a 9 x 13 pan, consider doubling the recipe for thicker results.
What to Serve with Blackberry Cobbler
…Just kidding. I just want to see if you’re paying attention. The obvious answer is vanilla ice cream.
Should you choose to omit this very important addition, I will find you…ice cream in hand.

- 1/2 stick butter, melted. (equal to 4 tbsp.)
- 2 cups fresh or frozen blackberries, rinsed and patted dry.

This was a big hit at a dinner we had. My first cobbler and it turned out great. I used half a cup of sugar and it was nice with ice cream, not too sweet.
I tried making it again with 4 cups of fruit and it was too much. It fell apart.
Great recipe and a great jumping off point for variations!
Great job nailing your first cobbler!👏 Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a review!
Perfect recipe! Easy and delicious. Why do it any other way?
I’m so happy you enjoyed it Leila! Thanks so much for the great review!😃
Super easy to make and everyone loves it. Thanks for an awesome and easy recipe.
It’s my pleasure Chris, thanks so much for taking the time to leave a review!💖
Can this be frozen after it’s made? Even if I use frozen berries?
I haven’t tried freezing it, so I can’t say for sure!
Like any good recipe this is versatile and easy! I used blueberries and strawberries. The more important thing for me was a dump it all in style cobbler that wasn’t from a box. I kept finding recipes that call for cutting cold butter and making a biscuit shapped piece of dough on top or some crumble mess of ingredients that just float on top the fruit. This recipe was the closest to my great grandmother’s 👍 👍
I’m so happy you enjoyed this one Rose! I make it all the time. Like you said it’s easy and versatile, I love experimenting with different fruits. Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a review!💖
