Berry Cobbler Recipe

This Berry Cobbler is a very simple and easy recipe that is just so good! This recipe includes a blend of blackberries, strawberries, and blueberries for a sweet and tart variety of fruit. The berries are topped with a crumble that is very quick to make and then, placed in the oven for just 30 minutes to bake to perfection. This Cobbler recipe is so amazing that I recommend trying out other cobbler recipes like this Magic Lemon Cobbler or this Best Ever Pumpkin Cobbler.

What Makes this a Cobbler?

A cobbler dessert is a very simple dessert. What makes the dessert a cobbler is the flavoring of fruit or berries as the base of the recipe. Then, this recipe is topped with a delicious dough crumble to add texture.

The cobbler does not have a bottom crust. The berries are mixed with lemon juice and cornstarch and placed in the baking dish. The top crumble is all that could be considered a crust.

    Favorite recipe for cobbler!!!
    I made the topping wrong the first 2 batches I did because I assumed one stick of butter was one cup! HA!
    Making another dish as I’m making this comment, the topping turned out so much better looking hahaha, I trusted the process past couple of batches and it was still delicious!!

    This is my go to topping for all my cobblers!

    Thanks so much for sharing this recipe! ❤️

    1. I did add maybe a spoonful of regular sugar to the berries, with the lemon and cornstarch of course. I thought I had the memory down for this recipe, but I was wrong. Didn’t make it overly sweet or anything!

  2. I’ve made this several times, comes out amazing. My topping is more like a dough texture and not crumbly.

    1. Hi Kim. It is best to defrost them to ensure you won’t have any uncooked berries in the cobbler.

    Delicious dessert. I doubled the recipe to fit a 9×13 pan. The crust was golden on top but a bit undercooked like cookie dough. I will add a few extra minutes next time and cover with foil

  4. 5 stars
    So good!!! Super easy to throw together. Needed to use up berries before they went bad, just threw in strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries and it came out amazing!

  5. 5 stars
    This is the absolute best berry cobbler I have made. Every time I make it my guests rave about it. It is now my go too. It’s not too sweet either.

  6. 5 stars
    Delicious, my family and I loved it. The only thing is that 30 minutes wasn’t long enough, the dough was still raw so I baked it for another 15 minutes.

      Spectacular cobbler! Wow!
      I used 1/2 cup butter, 1/2 c coconut oil. I was a little short on strawberries so I used more blackberries. I had to cook it for at least an additional 20 mins. My husband can’t stop raving how good it is. Thanks. This one’s a keeper!

  7. The recipe sounded great – just what I was looking for …. However, there wasn’t any ingredient amounts with it??! ‍♀️ I didn’t feel like wasting ingredients by guess-working the amounts. So, I didn’t try it.

    1. Hi Linnie. The ingredient amounts are in the recipe card near the bottom of the page. You can click on the “jump to recipe” button at the top of the page to get you there without scrolling.

  8. I used fresh berries I had on hand (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries). The instructions were easy to follow, and everything appeared to come together easily. I was surprised that there is no granulated sugar in the recipe, but oh how flavorful it is! It’s not overly sweet and the berries’ flavors come through really well.

    1. 375 degrees. It is listed in the recipe, but we added it to the recipe card as well. Thanks!
