Berry Cobbler

This is a very old recipe I’ve been making for years.  I originally posted it back in 2007 during my first few months of blogging.  The photo was horrendous, and the recipe very poorly written.  Ha!

It’s time to bring this back to the forefront and re-introduce such a lovely and easy berry cobbler.  I’m a sucker for crumb toppings, so instead of a crust-like pie dough topping, I just sprinkle a mixture of flour, butter and sugar.  Simple as that!

Berry Cobbler

My good friend shared this recipe with me almost 7 years ago when we visited her family in Seattle.  She made us a blackberry cobbler with berries we picked from around her neighborhood.  Such a fun memory!  I adapted it over the years to include all types of berries and even more of the crumble topping.

The basic recipe is written below, but you can double it up, change the types of berries/fruit, increase or decrease the amount of sugar to taste, add more or less topping… make it your own!  Serve it up with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream and you really have a treat in your bowl!

Our Favorite Berry Cobbler

One of our all-time favorite desserts, this berry cobbler is mixed up quickly, thrown into the oven and then topped with a scoop of ice cream.

    For the Fruit
  • 4 cups mixed fresh berries (blueberries, chopped strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, etc.)
  • Juice from half a lemon
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • For the Topping:
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) cold unsalted butter
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 cup flour
  • Optional Topping:
  • Vanilla Ice Cream

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

For the Fruit:

Toss together the berries, lemon juice and 1/3 cup sugar in a large bowl. Pour into a 9x9 baking dish.

For the Topping:

Wipe out the large bowl. Add the cold butter, 2/3 cup sugar and flour into the bowl. Use your fingers or a pastry cutter to combine the ingredients to form a coarse crumble topping. Sprinkle evenly on top of the fruit in the baking dish.

Bake for 30 minutes, or until bubbly and crust is starting to turn golden on the edges. Let set for 5 minutes before serving. Optional: Top with a couple of scoops of vanilla bean ice cream.

  1. You can’t have summer with out the berry cobbler. This looks like heaven! And that CRUST! Oh my!

  2. What an amazing crust! I just want to stick a fork in it!

  3. I can see why this is your fav! Looks awesome!

  4. This looks outrageously good, Nikki! I would be all up on this cobbler in a heartbeat!

  5. This is like astounding! The blackberries grow all around us and I am going to make a version of this soon!

  6. Made this one tonight….delicious!! It was a hit with everyone! 🙂 Definitely tasty when topped with the vanilla bean ice cream, too. Only change I’ll make for next time is to double the amount of topping. I didn’t measure my berries, so I may have used more then 4 cups, but I felt like it needed more topping. I just wish fresh berries were cheaper – this was an expensive dessert! Haha! Definitely a keeper though! Thank you!

  7. oh my gosh AMAZING!
