This traditional berry cobbler is very easy to make and tastes delicious-the batter goes in the pan first then the strawberry and blackberry mixture pours over top and bakes up into a sweet, delicate cobbler that is always a hit when entertaining!


Units Scale
  • 12 ounces fresh blackberries, rinsed
  • 6 ounces fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk (I used skim)
  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly


  1. In a medium bowl combine berries with sugar and stir to coat. Allow to sit at least thirty minutes to extract the juices of the fruit.
  2. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Lightly spray a 8 by 8" baking dish with nonstick spray.
  3. In a bowl combine flour, baking powder, salt, milk and butter. Stir by hand until combined.
  4. Pour batter in prepared dish. Top with berry mixture being sure to scrape all juices and sugar on the batter as well.
  5. Bake for 50 minutes or until golden brown.
  6. Allow to cool 30 minutes before serving.


  • Freeze leftovers up to 3 months in freezer safe container.
