This easy blackberry cobbler recipe uses a resource that grows a little too easily (cough invasive) in Western Oregon. You can sub in any other berry, sliced stone fruit, or a mix depending on what’s in season or available to you. Serve it with homemade vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.

Equipment & Ingredients to Make This
To make this easy blackberry cobbler recipe, you won’t need any special equipment! I bake mine in a 2.5-quart baking dish (I’d love to get this one!) to maximize the caramelized edges.
The ingredients you’ll need are likely already in your home already if you do any baking. You will also need buttermilk (learn how to culture your own here), demerara sugar for a little sweet crunch, and a quality Ceylon cinnamon.
You can substitute other berries or stone fruits (peaches, nectarines, plums, cherries), or even a mix (cherry berry, anyone?). If you substitute larger stone fruits like peaches, make sure they’re peeled and sliced. You can also cut them into pieces.
How to Make This Easy Blackberry Cobbler
Start by melting the butter in your baking dish by sliding it into the preheated oven.
While the butter melts, mix together the dry cobbler ingredients.
Remove the baking dish from the oven. The butter will be melted.
Pour the buttermilk into the dry ingredients.
Mix until just combined.
And pour the cobbler into the baking dish. Use a spoon to spread the cobbler into the corners.
Sprinkle the blackberries on top.
Bake until golden brown. Fifteen minutes before the bake time is finished, pull out the cobbler and sprinkle with demerara sugar.
Allow the cobbler to cool for 10 minutes before serving.
How to Store Blackberry Cobbler
Allow your cobbler to cool completely and then cover with plastic or beeswax wraps. Moisture will build up inside if it’s not cooled completely before covering. The moisture build-up can lead to spoilage, so again, make sure it’s cooled completely.
You can store your cobbler at room temperature for up to 3 days. But surely you’ll have it all eaten long before then, right?
