  • Whisk the milk, oil, 1/3 cup sugar, and baking mix together in a bowl until no large lumps remain. Pour into the prepared baking dish. Whisk 2/3 cup sugar with the water in a clean bowl until mixed. Gently fold in the berries until evenly coated. Spread the berries over the baking mix batter.

  • Bake in the preheated oven 45 minutes.

Cook's Notes

It might seem like a lot of water but when mixed with the berries and sugar, it turns into a syrup and once cooked, it basically turns into a jelly. If using canned or frozen sweetened fruit, omit the sugar and use juice instead of water.

For requiring so few ingredients, this cobbler was awesome! I added some cinnamon to the blackberries, and cut the water back to 3/4 cup. Served warm with vanilla ice cream. Thanks, AshleyElaine, for the recipe. I'll definitely be making this again! Read More

I made this today with a bunch of blackberries I had to use. Like one of the other reviewers, this recipe is UNGODLY sweet.. I would reduce the sugar in the water mixture to 1/3 of a cup. I would also add cinnamon and maybe some vanilla to the cake mix. Its good, dont get me wrong, but my teeth hurt from eating it!!! Read More

This is a great recipe and I make it a lot in the summer using berries and other fruits of the season. Easy and simple. I do not use as much sugar as called for, as we prefer a cobbler that is not quite so sweet. Read More

So this is pretty good, but it's assembled a little oddly. I looked at the directions several times, mentally shrugged, and then followed them. I'm surprised no reviewer commented on it, but it says to put the cobbler under the berries, not on top. It worked okay--I guess, but I kept thinking it wasn't done since the middle was still liquidy--that was the berries, not the cobbler. I'd reverse it next time, bc it makes a good cobbler otherwise. I did use less sugar, and splenda instead, and it worked well. Thanks for the recipe. Read More

Absolutely love blackberries but very expensive in the shops here. Fortunately right now they have a special so a wonderful excuse to try this. The only fault was the sweetness so reduced the sugar by almost half and added 2 tsps. of fresh lemon juice. Thanks for a nice simple cobbler........ Read More

Good but very sweet. My son loved it but I like to have a tiny bit of tartness in a berry filling. I will make again and maybe add a little lemon juice to the berries/sugar mixture. Read More

I used 3 1/2 cups fresh blackberries 1/3 C. white sugar in the water. For the batter I used 1/3 C melted butter instead of oil and 1/2 C Bisquick & 1/2 C organic multigrain baking mix from "Inn On the Creek". Loved it... not as rich with less sugar so I served it with whipped cream.; ) One of the best desserts for summer. Thanks for posting it. Read More

I save bananas that are too ripe in the freezer. I thawed one & mashed it up added 1 tbsp of sugar and we were good to go! No oil! Also added chopped pecans to batter because they were on hand and it was delish! Used a lot less sugar in fresh berries also! Read More

I made this for my husband's company picnic. I ended up doubling the recipe. I took other people's suggestions and added lemon juice and cinnamon to the blackberries. I didn't add the 1 cup of water since the freshly picked blackberries produced their own juices when I add the sugar to it. Followed the cake exactly as indicated. I put parchment paper on the bottom of the baking pan and put the blackberries on top of the paper and the batter on top the blackberries. After they were done baking and let it cool for about an hour, I flipped the pan over on a big plate and garnished it with more fresh blackberries. It was pretty sweet but I like it that way to counter act some of the tartness of the blackberries. Read More
