Grammy's Easy Blackberry Cobbler

Recipe by  

"In West Virginia, blackberries used to grow wild near our neighborhood. My Grammy would make me this recipe after we would go berry-picking. This recipe is also good with blueberries and raspberries."

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Place the cake mix into a mixing bowl, and work in the butter until the cake mix resembles corn meal. Spread the berries into a 9x13-inch glass baking dish, and sprinkle evenly with the crumb topping.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the berries are tender, and the crumb topping is golden brown, about 30 minutes.

I used this recipe with wild blackberries and doubled the quantity and then I also put in an egg with a little milk to make the cake mix creamy and I then took spoonfuls and put over the blackberries. Results were awsome!

It's a no go by itself, too sweet...even with black coffee. Every bite I took, something was missing. For instance, either a cream cheese mixture and a graham cracker crust or a moist, white cake with veins of sugar/cinnamon. I made the recipe as is without tweaking it.

Anytime you have less than four ingredients, it's at least worth trying. I did this the traditional 'dump cake' way and didn't bother mixing up the butter with the cake mix. I just sprinkled the box of mix on top of the berries and then poured the melted butter on top. Turned out perfect. I did cook it a bit longer than recommended to get more juice from the berries.

Delicious and very easy! I used fresh frozen berries I had picked last summer. Actually used 4 cups and it was great.

Loved this! I used a lemon cake mix because that's what I had here but the lemon added to it, I think. Super easy and very tasty! Will definitely make again and again!

This was so easy! I only made a couple changes. I used 1 1/2 (16 oz) bags of mixed berries and added 1/2 tsp almond extract to the cake/butter mixture. Came out delicious! Will make it again for sure.

I make a peach cobler exactly like this. Using blackberries was very delicious. I did the same dump method as mentioned by another viewer except I added 3/4 of a bottle of cream soda on top of the berries. Everyone loved it!

Delicious and VERY easy. I saw other recipes that called for a lot of sugar, but that wasn't necessary with the cake mix. My husband brought some blackberries home from the farmer's market, so I whipped this up and served it hot with vanilla ice cream. Wow! Thanks so much for the recipe!
