PIN THIS TO SAVE FOR LATER
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.
Here are some commonly asked questions
Do I have to thaw the berries first?
Yes- please thaw them and pat them dry before continuing with the recipe. Frozen berries tend to cook out a lot more moisture – so the cobbler may be soggier when using frozen vs fresh.
How to store leftover cobbler
I like to cover the dish and keep it in the refrigerator. Since this recipe is best when warm, just serve in a microwave-safe bowl or plate and microwave for 1-2 minutes or until hot.
Can I use another flavor of cake mix?
Yes, absolutely, that will work just fine. I have used white, yellow, and even chocolate when I didn’t have a box of vanilla.
Can this be made with canned fruit?
I have not tried it with canned berries, like a pie filling. But I have made this with canned peaches (drained) and that turned out fantastic.
Ingredients for Blackberry Cobbler
- blackberries – thawed and patted dry
- french vanilla cake mix
- clear soda
Tips for finding the best blackberries
- buy local whenever possible – this will give you the best/freshest berries
- look for black or dark purple all the way to the top. If there is pink or lighter color at the top – the berries aren’t quite ripe yet
- visit a pick your own berry farm – these make for a great family experience. The kids love it.
- shop the farmers market – the next best thing to pick your own, still local and fresh – with all the work cut out for you
- if you live in a place where blackberry bushes are in abundance (Pacific Northwest) I strongly recommend stopping by the corner fruit stand and picking up a flat of berries.
What to serve with a blackberry cobbler?
Because we typically serve this cobbler at a potluck – we usually like to pair it with all our favorite grilling dishes. Anything we would serve at a backyard bbq is the perfect main or side dish to this cobbler. Here are some of our favorites…
- baby back ribs
- sea salt garlic corn on the cob

Simple Blackberry Cobbler
- 24 ounces frozen blackberries thawed and patted dry
- 1 box french vanilla cake mix
- 16 ounces clear soda such as Sprite or 7-up
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- Lightly spray a 9×13 baking dish with cooking spray.
- Spread the blackberries in an even layer over the bottom of the prepared dish.
- Add the dry cake mix over the top of the berries.
- Slowly pour the soda over the top of the cake mix making sure you moisten nearly all of the dry mix. This will give you your crust.
- DO NOT STIR – if you stir you will have a top more like a cake- not a crust.
- Bake for 45-60 minutes. Watch closely after the 45 min mark – allow it to brown on top but every oven is different and you don't want it to burn on top. If you want it really brown you can broil the top for a couple of minutes.
- Remove & allow to cool slightly before serving. We prefer ours with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream on top.
