Easy Homemade Blackberry Cobbler
Cobblers are usually very simple desserts to make. Did you try my The Easiest Peach Cobbler You Will Ever Bake? Although that was delicious, I think this blackberry one is even better. With fresh blackberries,(frozen could be used) butter, flour, sugar, butter, and a few other pantry staples, it is very easy to make. If you are looking to cut out some of the calories or carbs, you could swap out the sugar for your favorite sugar substitute. My favorite is monk fruit. I think it tastes the most like real sugar. The flour could also be swapped for almond flour.
Blackberries are one of my favorites fruits they are so juicy and flavorful. I love them on ice cream or just in a bowl with sugar. Did you try the Skinny Blackberry Margarita that I have shared in the past? Well, I was growing up in upstate New York, there were blackberry bushes everywhere. We would eat them right off the bush. We often would pick enough that my mother could freeze them and save them to eat in the fall or winter.
Cobbler is the perfect dessert because it is a cross between pie and cake. When I made the peach cobbler I used a cake mix for a crumbly crust. This crust is a little more spongy similar to biscuits. Blueberries or apples are also great options for cobbler.
