Yesterday I promised you that I would dedicate these warm months ahead to taking things back to simple. I know that I don’t want to spend a whole lot of time in the kitchen or working on prep for anything when it’s warm & gorgeous outside. We have spent so much time working on our yard & house that I want to be out enjoying it. But I want to enjoy it while having a delicious treat after a long day. So I whipped up this Simple Blackberry Cobbler with just 3 ingredients I always have on hand – popped it in the oven for about an hour & we had an amazing dessert. The kids were loving it because they absolutely freak over blackberries. I’m loving it because it’s easy, quick & oh so yummy. What could be better??
I’m definitely in full “simple” mode. It’s like once the temps got high enough that I pulled out the flip flops & lost the sweatshirt – I wanted things to get less complicated. I mentioned that I have so many things on my list for the house this summer. Literally have projects to last until fall. So with all that time spent doing that (which I love because I love making my house more personal for us) I have less & less time to be making treats. But I still want them – I just have to be more creative & make them more streamlined.
Simple Blackberry Cobbler
- 24 ounces frozen blackberries
- 1 box french vanilla cake mix
- 16 ounces clear soda like Sprite or 7-up
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees
- Lightly spray 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray
- Spread frozen blackberries in an even layer over bottom of the pan
- Add dry cake mix over the top
- Slowly pour soda over the top of the cake mix making sure you moisten nearly all of the dry mix which will give you your crust
- DO NOT STIR - if you stir you will have a top more like cake- not crust
- Bake 45-60 minutes watching closely after the 45 min mark - allow it to brown on top
- If you want it really brown you can broil the top for a couple minutes
- Remove & allow to cool slightly before serving
- We prefer ours with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream on top
So what’s your favorite flavor for cobbler?? Peach, Cherry??
