Momma’s Blackberry Cobbler

I was in a baking kinda mood on the 4th of July and decided to make a couple of different desserts. This was one of them as it is so easy to make. I hadn’t made one in a while so I had forgotten how good they make the house smell too.

I mixed the berries up and let them sit about 30 minutes or so to blend well. I used that time to make up a Lemon Meringue Pie and a Nanny’s No Bake Coconut Cream Pie. All three of these were super easy to make and so good to eat.

Momma’s Blackberry Cobbler


  • 4 c. fresh or partially thawed blackberries
  • 3/4 c. sugar
  • 4 T. cornstarch
  • 1 T. lemon juice, optional
  • 1 yellow or white cake mix
  • 1 stick of butter or margarine, cut into pats


Combine the first four ingredients in a large bowl. Cover and let sit for about 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350

Grease a 9 x 13 casserole dish

After 30 minutes mash the berries lightly with a potato masher or the bottom of a glass, and give them a gentle stir.

Dump the blackberries into the greased casserole.

Pour the dry cake mix on top and spread evenly. (if you don’t want a lot of crust then only use 1/2.)

Place the butter pats on top of the cake mix.

Bake for 30 – 45 minutes or until slightly browned.

Let cool a bit and serve warm with a large scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Also good cold 🙂
