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.

  • Whole Milk

  • Vanilla Ice Cream– for serving, optional

Homemade Self Rising 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.

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.

  • 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

  • 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)!

Homemade Self Rising Flour:

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

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!

  1. This recipe makes an outstanding  cobbler.
    Light texture inside with buttery crispy edges I did add a few drops of pure vanilla extract .
    So good!!!  Will try next with ripe Carolina peaches
    Thanks Cozycook and Pioneer woman!!!!!!!!

    • SO happy to hear that you enjoyed it Mary, it sounds absolutely delicious with the vanilla extract! Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review! -Stephanie

  2. I make this recipe using Oatmilk and Plant Butter (I’m dairy-free) and it’s amazing! 

    • Hey Jess! That sounds great, I’m so happy that you were able to make it work well with those variations, thank you so much for sharing and for taking the time to leave a review!! -Stephanie

  3. It’s so good AND so easy! One of the best things I’ve ever made. Thank you!

  4. My mother taught all 3 of us girls this recipe when we were young. An easy way to grease the pan is to put the butter into the pan while the oven is preheating. Watch to make sure the butter doesn’t burn. When it’s melted, spread it around the pan to grease it, then pour the rest of the batter into the pan. You don’t even have to try to pour the hot butter into your batter. It gives the edges a really nice, buttery crust when cooked.

  5. I love cobbler and have always used my grandmother’s recipe. I just picked some fresh blackberries and wanted a cobbler and decided to try a new recipe so I found this one. This is the best blackberry cobbler I’ve ever eaten. I guess I’ll have to apologize to my grandma and pass this recipe on to her. 

    • Fresh blackberries are the best with this recipe! I’m so happy this is the best cobbler you’ve eaten❤️ We love it so much! Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a review!

  6. We love blackberry cobbler so I doubled the recipe. Was fantastic! Usually make with a pie crust but husband liked this much better. Getting ready to make another one… I may have some left to share!

    • I am sooo happy to hear that Janice!! I am due to make this recipe again myself, and it’s the perfect time of year for it. Thank you so much for taking the time to leave this review as well! -Stephanie

  7. Great recipe. I had some berries frozen from last year and despite being pretty crushed up I thought i would give this a shot. Came out great. I made it in a 13 x 9 pan and made another half recipe to fill the pan.

    • Hi Paul! I am so happy that you were able to make use of your frozen berries with this recipe! Nicely done, thank you for sharing and for taking the time to leave this review, I really appreciate it! -Stephanie

  8. My 13-year-old son use this recipe to make his blackberry cobbler it was so delicious it turned out great he doubled the recipe

  9. Could you do the same recipe for a peach cobbler? I really love how this turned out with blackberries. I looked up a peach cobbler recipe with pioneer woman but didn’t like how the crust looked

  10. Used blackberries picked fresh from the backyard! I made it last night & my honey of 52 years said it was best cobbler I ever made. I’ve made a lot of cobblers in my last 60 years, it was simple, easy and delicious! It definitely is a keeper. Next time I’ll add extra berries after 30 minutes baking.

    • Hi Mary, I am so happy to hear that you enjoyed this cobbler! Adding more berries 30 minutes in sounds like a great idea, I love loading this up with berries. Thank you so much for taking the time to leave this review, I really appreciate it! -Stephanie
