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

  • Sugar
  • 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
  • Butter
  • 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

  • Blueberries
  • Raspberries
  • Strawberries
  • Peaches

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

  • 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.

The Pioneer Women's Blackberry Cobbler

5 from 106 ratings
This easy Blackberry Cobbler recipe from The Pioneer Woman takes just 5 ingredients and 10 minutes to prepare. It's got a sweet, juicy filling and a crisp golden crust!


  • 1 1/4 cups + 2 tablespoons sugar, separated
  • 1 cup self-rising flour* see notes for easy homemade version
  • 1 cup whole milk, see notes
  • 1/2 stick butter, melted
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen blackberries, rinsed and patted dry.
  • Vanilla ice cream, for serving


  • Note: If using frozen berries, be sure to add them when they're frozen. If you let them thaw, they'll be mushy, and the consistency will be off.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Combine 1 cup of sugar with 1 cup of flour in a large bowl.
  • Stir in the milk, then the melted butter. Mix until well-combined.
  • Pour onto the bottom of a greased 9 x 9 inch baking dish.
  • Distribute the berries throughout the top. (They’ll sink in further as they bake.) If desired, you can sprinkle more berries on top once it's started to bake and set to keep those closer to the top. About 30 minutes in.
  • Sprinkle ¼ cup sugar over the top, reserving 2 tablespoons for later.
  • Bake for 50 minutes, remove from the oven and sprinkle remaining 2 tablespoons sugar on top.
  • Bake for 10 minutes, or until the top is golden brown.
  • Serve immediately, (with ice cream of course)!


*Although the original recipe calls for whole milk, I've used 1% before and it comes out great.

Homemade Self Rising Flour: 1 cup flour + ½ tsp of salt + 1 ½ tsp baking powder

Alternative berry options include blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, peaches, or a combination of several!

  1. Can you add heavy whipped cream on top after it cools down to make it better

  2. I made this cobbler today for my husband and he loves it. Thank you for this recipe bc it was compared to the mother in laws recipe and it came out perfectly!

  3. This cobbler recipe is so easy with its few ingredients. Thank you!

    • I’m so happy to hear that you enjoyed it Susan, I love the simplicity of it too! I don’t bake often, but I can’t ever resist making this one, it’s too easy! Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review, I really appreciate it! -Stephanie

  4. Excellent crunch on the outside crust. Great recipe 

  5. Picked blackberries with the hubby and kids yesterday for a “Father’s Day weekend” outing… the kids weren’t going for the tart blackberries as a stand alone snack, so I looked up a blackberry cobbler recipe and this was the first one I read. I whipped it together after dinner tonight and it totally delivered!!!! “Berry” tasty;) I subbed brown sugar as the final topping instead of white sugar- perfect on this cool summer night with the Breyers homemade vanilla!

    • I’m so happy you guys enjoyed the cobbler Catherine! Some homemade vanilla is a yummy addition, nice work! Thanks so much for the great comments and review!😃

  6. This is outstanding and so simple! Have made it several times and shared the recipe!

  7. I made this today for Father’s Day tomorrow. My husband didn’t want ice cream and likes cobbler hot or cold. I decided tomorrow is too busy so went ahead and made it. I can’t wait to try it! I will come back and rate the taste tomorrow.

    Thank you for the easy recipe!

    • You’re very welcome Sherri! You’ll have to tell me how he likes it, great choice for fathers day!😃

      • We decided to eat a piece today. It has a good taste but my blackberries never made any of the juices. I think next time I will put the sugar on the blackberries first thing to give them a greater chance to produce some juice.

        I like the idea of using blueberries and peaches too. Next time.

    • I made this on June 11th for my Birthday! It was so delicious and everyone wanted seconds! I made it with our homegrown blackberries and peaches… hardest part was deciding which one to have! It was so good my hubby asked for it again today for fathers day! This one is a keeper for sure! Fast, easy, and a crowd pleaser! Thank you for this awesome recipe!

      • You’re very welcome April! I’m so happy this was such a hit with your homegrown fruit, homegrown can’t be beat! Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment and review, much appreciated!😃

  8. Amazing!! But can I use this same recipe for peach cobbler?

  9. It says a 1/2 stick of butter but the picture is a whole stick. Which is it?

  10. Best recipe I’ve ever tried. The cobbler was delicious!!
