Easy Bisquick Blackberry Cobbler

You’ll see just how versatile a box of Bisquick can be in this easy blackberry cobbler recipe. It’s a wonderful summer dessert that takes just a few minutes of prep work for an incredible treat. It’s a great go-to for cookouts, parties, or potlucks too.

Cobbler can be made in a variety of ways. Some recipes may have a crumbly topping, while others use biscuits. Our family’s favorite method is the cake-style cobbler topping, using Bisquick mix. Not only is it super easy to prepare, but the topping bakes up fluffy and golden brown, just like freshly-made pankcakes. This is also the method we used to make our Blueberry Cobbler, the recipe that’s been in our family for generations!

Imagine if blackberry pie and buttermilk pancakes had a baby…and you’ve got an idea of how delicious this homemade blackberry cobbler tastes! It’s just the right amount of sweetness, just the right fluffy texture, and so much flavor!

A spoonful of Bisquick Blackberry Cobbler

Ingredients

  • 1 cup blackberries, fresh or frozen
  • 1 cup sugar, divided
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 cup Bisquick
  • 1/4 cup milk

What is Bisquick?

Bisquick is the brand name of a type of pre-mixed baking flour sold by Betty Crocker. It contains flour, shortening, salt, sugar, and baking powder. You don’t have to use this particular brand; it’s simply what our family has used for years. Any other brand of similar baking mix or pancake mix should work for your crust.

Prep Tips

  • This cobbler is delicious right out of the oven as-is, but it looks pretty with a sprinkle of powder sugar or a dash of cinnamon on top too.
  • Fruit cobbler tastes amazing with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or dollop of whipped cream.
  • To enhance the berry flavor, try adding a squeeze of fresh lemon juice to the berries and sugar mixture before baking.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Many Servings Does This Recipe Yield?

This recipe is actually smaller than some of our other cobbler recipes, like the one we made with blueberries. Instead of using a large 9×13″ pan, I recommend using something smaller, such as 8×10. Depending on how big of a scoop you use, I’d say that this dessert should serve 4-6.

Can You Use Frozen Blackberries?

We were lucky enough to discover acres of wild blackberries growing at the back of our property this year. We picked bucket after bucket of fresh blackberries that we used to make blackberry jam, syrup, and other goodies.

However, if you don’t have access to fresh berries, you can also use frozen blackberries. I recommend thawing first and then draining any excess moisture before incorporating in this dish.

Does Fruit Cobbler Need to be Refrigerated?

Yes, any leftover cobbler should be kept in the refrigerator, for both food safety and maintaining the quality of the dish. If left out at room temperature for more than a couple hours, the fruit may start to dry out and the topping may become a bit mushy, which is the exact opposite of what we want. I also recommend covering the dish with plastic wrap or foil, or a lid if your pan has one, before placing in the fridge.

Why Is My Cobbler Soggy?

If the filling for your cobbler seems too runny, there are a couple potential causes. One reason could be that if you used frozen berries, there was too much excess moisture. Be sure to drain or soak up any water from melting with a paper towel. Another reason could be that the cobbler is still too hot. Give it time to cool and the fruit filling should thicken up. (These same fixes can apply to pretty much any fruit cobbler, whether it’s made with blackberries like this one…or peaches, raspberries, etc.)

  1. Can Bisquick Blackberry Cobbler be made Sugar-Free?

    • While you can use a sugar-free sweetener in place of the regular sugar, keep in mind that blackberries contain natural fruit sugar and many Bisquick style mixes also contain added sugar.
