The Best Blackberry Cobbler

Inspired by the incredible berry-season, this is the Best Blackberry Cobbler recipe that is about to change the whole cobbler game. It is beautifully put together with loads of juicy blackberry filling that is layered on top of a flaky, buttery cinnamon crust. The soft texture of blackberries tastes just right with the slightly crumbly crust, and that’s what makes this easy and delicious dessert so special. This recipe is also perfect to use other seasonal fruit if you don’t have blackberries readily available. There is something very unmatchable and tasty yet healthy when you combine real fruits in dessert recipes. A major reason why berries are also easy to bake with is that there is no peeling, slicing or dicing involved. You can just use them straight from the box to making the filling. This recipe can be made for any occasion all year round, and it's also a perfect idea for brunch or picnics. Because of the nutritional value of blackberries in this dessert, it is not only a great way of getting kids to eat healthily but also allows them to enjoy a much deserved sweet treat from time to time. The nutritional value of blackberries mainly comes from Vitamin A and C along with other essential nutrients our body needs like Calcium, Potassium and iron.

Usually, fruit fillings can be made in advance and frozen up to a year or so. This option is particularly a good one if you bake a lot or have too many family gatherings or other occasions. On the day of baking, just thaw an hour before and resume as usual with the recipe. If sealed and stored properly, fruit fillings don’t lose their freshness and flavor. Another way of making berry cobblers in the off season is to stock up the berries while they’re in season and freeze them in airtight containers. Just make sure to use a zip lock bag and lock the air out. This tip also saves your money in the long run from buying fruit in the off season which can be expensive. For the crust, you can use other alternatives like Bisquick, Graham crackers, oats, shortbread, ‘Digestive’ or ‘Rich Tea biscuits’ or even lady fingers. To make it a bit more fun you can add a few tablespoons of bourbon whiskey, rum or brandy on top once the cobbler is fully baked. You can also use other spices in the place of cinnamon like ginger, nutmeg or pumpkin pie spice to the crust. Though this recipe is meant to be eaten just the way it is, there is no rule why shouldn’t serve it along with ice cream on the side. You can also add toppings of your choice for garnish such as chopped cashews or blanched almonds just because nuts add a bit more crunch and flavor or top it with mixed berries, kiwis or any fruit of your choice.

Did you know April 13 is National Peach Cobbler Day? There are so many desserts that are like Cobbler but with slight variations to it such as tarts, pies, tortes, pandowdies, grunts, slumps, buckles, crisps, croustades, bird's nest pudding or crow's nest pudding.
