We’ve had a garden in the backyard for almost 5 years. Some things grow better than others, but one consistency has always been our blackberry bushes! We planted one bush the first year, then got a second the next year. Now, during the late spring and early summer, we have an abundance of fresh blackberries.

Our biggest issue has been the birds. There are a lot of mockingbirds in the area, and they like to eat our berries. We’ve learned that we have to go out before breakfast every morning to pull the berries before the birds get to them. The boys like the challenge of getting out there early enough, and making it back inside before the sprinklers turn on.

If you have fresh blackberries, it helps to pick them when they just start to turn red all over. Let them ripen on the counter for a day or two, until they turn dark purple. Then we place them in the refrigerator and they will keep for about a week.

There have been a few times that we have so many blackberries, we don’t know what to do with them! The boys will eat them dipped in a bit of sugar. Justin likes to make some adult drinks with blackberries in them. I decided we needed to try to make a blackberry cobbler one day.

It was very easy to make, and used pantry staples for us. We tend to have these in the summer and fall because of when the berries are in season. But you could change it from a blackberry cobbler to any cobbler with berries, depending on what’s available in your area.

Step by Step

Preheat the oven to 375F and prepare your ingredients. I like to have everything measured and ready to make sure I am not missing an ingredient before getting started.

Place the blackberries in a greased 1.5qt baking dish and drizzle with lemon juice.

In a small bowl, combine the egg, sugar, and flour with a wooden spoon until it looks like sand. It doesn’t have to be perfect, but you want it mixed fairly well.

Sprinkle the flour mixture over the blackberries. Depending on the size of your pan, you may see some of the blackberries peeking through. Don’t worry about that, it will still cook properly.

Pour the melted butter over the flour mixture, covering as much as possible. Again, it doesn’t have to cover the entire dish. You just want to cover what you can.

Bake for 35-40 minutes, until the topping is lightly brown. Let it stand for at least 10 minutes before serving warm. We didn’t have any ice cream, but some vanilla ice cream would be delicious served with the blackberry cobbler.

Leftovers

Cover the baking dish and store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat in the oven to serve the blackberry cobbler warm again.
