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 your new favorite dessert or breakfast my friends.

Let’s go over some really easy FAQ.

How to Tell if a Blackberry is Ripe

  • Ripe blackberries are deep black in color as opposed to purple or red.
  • They’re also very full and plump.

Using unripe blackberries will result in a sour taste as opposed to being sweet and juicy.


Peak Season for Blackberries

  • In the United States, the peak season for blackberries runs from July to August.

Different Berries for Cobbler

  • I love how the blackberries in this recipe are so big and juicy, but alternative options include blueberries, raspberries, strawberriespeaches, or a combination of several!
  • 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.

Self Rising Flour vs. All Purpose Flour

  • Self rising flour contains a leavening agent that helps make baked goods rise. It’s often used to make biscuits and other fluffy baked goods.

(It’s also the secret ingredient in my Chinese Chicken Fingers)


Homemade Self Rising Flour

  • 1 + 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon of salt for each cup of flour.

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

  • I use my trusty 9 x 13 inch pan for this recipe and it works perfectly.
  • A 9 x 9 inch pan would work well too.

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.
