This easy blackberry cobbler recipe is a decadent dessert with a yummy blackberry filling and crumble topping! It is simple to make, but a crowd pleaser.


  • 34 cups of blackberries
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • Package of yellow cake mix (only 1 cup is needed)
  • 1 cup of instant rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup of flour
  • cube of real butter (cold)


To Make the Berry Mix

  • We started by washing our freshly picked blackberries (you could substitute frozen berries, just thaw them), and filling the bottom of an 8 x8 dish with the berries (about 3 or 4 cups, if its a shallow pan, about half way up with berries).
  • Add a 1/2 cup of sugar to the berries and gently mix in (you can add more, I like mine slightly tart to contrast with the sweeter crust, and ice cream we always add).

For the Cobbler Topping:

Mix together –

  • 1 cup of packaged yellow cake mix
  • 1 cup of instant rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup of flour ( you can substitute more of the yellow cake mix if you like your batter on the sweeter side, instead of the flour)

Cut in 1/4 of the cube of butter.

I do this by using my cheese grater and grating the butter over the mixture, then using a fork to work it in.

Crumble the topping over the top of the berry mix so that it covers it all. Take the remaining butter and using your cheese grater – grate a thin layer of butter over the top of the crumble mix. Grate the rest of the butter over the top.┬áPut in a 350 degree over for approx. 40 – 45 minutes, or until golden brown.


You can freeze blackberries if you are picking them yourself and want them to last through more seasons.
