This Homemade blackberry cobbler is a no-fuss way to enjoy summer’s berry bounty with minimal effort. Serve this easy blackberry cobbler with homemade vanilla bean ice cream or buy your favorite brand.
I grew up picking all the berries, but picking blackberries was the most satisfying because we could find hundreds of them. I am summer fruit obsessed. Every time I head to the market, I buy way too many berries. I guess I have a berry addiction. When I have cooked with all I can from my purchases I freeze them to cook with through the rest of the year, like smoothies, pies, cobblers. I love to use berries for savory sauces for grilled meats.
Besides being a tasty gift from nature, blackberries are a nutrient-dense food that falls into the superfood category. The deep, blue-black color is called anthocyanin, which is a type of antioxidant. They are high in fiber, low in natural sugars and full of immune-boosting vitamins and minerals. You just can’t go wrong with choosing blackberries to put into all your recipes.
If you are lucky enough to have fresh blackberries, be sure to use them in this dish. Otherwise, frozen will work well, too.
A Few Notes…
I have noted with a few asterisks that this recipe can be converted to be gluten-free and dairy-free. For the flour, you can use gluten-free flour. I like Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free 1 to 1 baking flour. A substitute that will work beautifully for the milk is almond milk. I love the Califa Farms Unsweetened Almond milk. It’s a lovely creamy mixture—finally, the ice cream. There are so many dairy-free ice creams, but my personal favorite is Halo Top. All these products should be available in your local grocery stores.
Enjoy this summertime favorite with your family and friends. It’s a perfect recipe for your Summer gatherings!
