This mixed berry cobbler is an easy dessert that everyone will love! It’s made with strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, and blueberries, then topped with a buttery biscuit topping and served with ice cream.
My local grocery store had a terrific sale on fresh strawberries, blackberries, and raspberries this week so I grabbed a bunch with a baked cobbler in mind. I also had a few blueberries in the fridge so instead of a triple berry cobbler I made a mixed berry cobbler. There is something so wonderful about sweetened baked fruit topped with cinnamon and sugar-crusted biscuits on top!! This delicious cobbler paired nicely with ice-cold vanilla ice cream but it’s also great with whipped cream. Needless to say, my berry-loving family devoured this mixed berry cobbler in no time.
How to Make a Blackberry Cobbler
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Combine the sugar, cornstarch, and cinnamon together in a large bowl. Add the washed strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, lemon zest, and lemon juice then gently toss together to coat evenly. Pour the mixture into a baking dish.
Place into the oven and bake for 25 minutes.
Prepare the biscuit topping by whisking together the flour, 1/4 cup of sugar, cornmeal, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a large bowl. In another bowl, whisk the buttermilk together with the cooled melted butter and vanilla until well combined. Set aside. In s small separate dish, combine the remaining 2 teaspoons of sugar with the 1/8th teaspoon of cinnamon; mix very well. Set aside.
One minute before the berries come out of the oven, add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients; stir with a rubber spatula until just combined and no dry pockets remain.
To assemble and bake, remove the berries from the oven; increase the oven temperature to 425 degrees.
Divide the biscuit dough into 6-8 equal pieces and place them on top of the hot berry filling, spacing them 1/2 inch apart (they should not be touching). Sprinkle the top of each biscuit with the sugar/cinnamon mixture.
Place into the oven and bake for 15-18 minutes. Remove from the oven and place on a wire rack to cool for 20 minutes. Serve with ice cream or whipped cream. Enjoy.
