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??
