Blackberry cobbler key ingredients
Self rising flour– Self rising flour contains a leavening agent that helps your baked goods rise. I bought a small package of self rising flour for $1.16 which is super budget friendly, but I’ve included a recipe on how to make it at home, too!
Sugar– Unbleached cane sugar is my go-to sugar selection. Zulka pure cane sugar is a great budget-friendly brand!
Egg– Adding an egg to the blackberry cobbler made it a little more fluffy and cake like, which is super delicious!
Blackberries– You can use fresh or frozen blackberries. If you are using frozen blackberries, do not thaw them out beforehand, use them while they are frozen.

Self rising flour has leavening in it to help backed good rise. You can make self rising flour by combining:

Make the cobbler in a cast iron pan
I love to make this easy blackberry cobbler in a cast iron pan because it’s how grandma would make hers. The edges of the cobbler get deliciously golden brown and the cast iron gets nice and hot so the blackberries caramelize. Yeah, you could use a baking dish… but if you have a cast iron pan, do that!
Use different fruits for cobbler
This easy blackberry cobbler recipe is the perfect guidline for any kind of cobbler. You can use a mixture of berries, or totally different fruits. Here are a few of my favorite recommendations:
