Berry Good Cobbler

Driving down a country road on the way to our house, we noticed that the blackberry bushes were ripe for picking, so we jumped out for a quick pick in the hopes of having something special for dessert. When we got home we decided cobbler sounded good, and the simplest recipe we could find online was from It was quite a hit with everyone. I would have prefered it to be served with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream, but all we had available was vanilla yogurt. The kids were satisfied with the substitution and can't wait to go pick some more berries this weekend to make muffins, more cobbler, some freezer jelly, and a pie (I get tired just thinking about it...and about ten pounds heavier!).

Here's the recipe:



1/2 c. milk
2 tsp. oil or melted shortening
1/3 c. sugar
1 c. pancake mix (Bisquick)
2 c. black berries
2/3 c. sugar
1 c. water


Mix first 4 ingredients and put into a greased 2 quart casserole. Mix berries, sugar and water. Pour over batter. Bake at 375 degrees about 45 minutes. If using canned or frozen sweetened fruit, omit sugar and use juice in place of water. The batter rises to the top, giving the cobbler its characteristic cobbled appearance.
