Whip It Up Wednesday: Blackberry Cobbler

Nothing screams summer in my opinion like a warm fruit cobbler with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream.  My dad loves blackberries and blackberry cobbler just happens to be his favorite dessert, so I plan to make this for him on the 4th.  This recipe is lip smackin’ good!

I am a huge Pioneer Woman fan.  I record her shows and watch as many as I possibly can.  In fact, often times while I’m cooking dinner or just doing the many things moms do, I love to have her show on in the background.  I’ll watch one right after the other.   And often times, when I’m needing something different for dinner, I’ll pull out her cookbooks and find a new treasure. This recipe is a very simple recipe, but it’s hers and I’ve just never eaten anything of hers that I didn’t like.


Pioneer Woman’s Blackberry Cobbler


1/2 stick butter, melted, plus more for greasing pan

1 1/4 cups plus 2 Tablespoons sugar

1 cup self-rising flour

1 cup whole milk

2 cups fresh (or frozen) blackberries

Whipped cream OR Ice cream for serving

  1. Preheat oven to 350 and grease a 3-quart baking dish with butter.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk 1 cup sugar with the flour and milk.  Whisk in the melted butter.
  3. Rinse and pat dry the blackberries.  Pour the batter into the greased pan.  Sprinkle the blackberries over the batter.  Sprinkle 1/4 cup sugar over the blackberries.  Bake until golden brown and bubbly, about 1 hour.  When 10 minutes of the cooking time remain, sprinkle the remaining 2 tablespoons of sugar over the top.  Serve with whipped cream or ice cream.

For those of you that aren’t on Instagram, I wanted to share a table with you that I did a couple of years ago.  It may be my most favorite patriotic table I’ve done.  I love the mix of the floral and gingham patterns, along with the flags.  Happy 4th, my friends!  I hope it’s spent with your nearest and dearest making lots of sweet memories.  Praying for our country, our leaders and military men and women everyday!  God bless America!!!

Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord. -Psalm 33:12
