Bisquick is a lifesaver for quick and easy meals. Who hasn’t had chicken pot pie with a Bisquick crust or breakfast Bisquick biscuits? Making delicious breakfasts would be a much more arduous task without this helpful stuff. The product is also useful for desserts. Cobbler batter doesn’t need to be made from scratch every time when you have Bisquick in the pantry. Not much else is needed for easy blackberry cobbler other than Bisquick, a wet ingredient (like water or juice), and the perfect tasty and nutritious fruit, depending on your preferences.
Here’s a great recipe for cobbler to get you started:
- 1/2 c. milk
- 2 tsp. oil or melted shortening
- 1/3 c. sugar
- 1 c. Bisquick
- 2 c. blackberries
- 2/3 c. sugar
- 1 c. water
Mix the milk, shortening, sugar, and Bisquick,then pour the mixture into a greased casserole dish. After combining these ingredients, pour the berries, sugar, and water over the batter. Bake at 375 degrees F for forty-five minutes. This dessert can also be used with canned or frozen fruit, substituting juice instead of water if you’d prefer to use them over fresh fruit.
Blackberry cobbler recipes can be altered to accommodate mixed fruits as well. Blueberries and blackberries, for example, would be a tasty mix that would yield exquisite results. Try aronia berries combined with blackberries if you’re looking for something out of the ordinary. Plus, aronia berries have a whole host of health benefits, and so do blackberries so the result would be a superfruit cobbler! Alternatively, try replacing aronia berries in this muffin recipe with blackberries to switch things up a bit.
For the cook who prefers a challenge, skip the Bisquick, and start from scratch with this classic blackberry cobbler recipe that is sure to impress guests:
- 4 cups fresh blackberries or 2 (16 ounce) packages frozen blackberries
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 3 tablespoons flour
- 1 1/2 cups water
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted
- 1 3/4 cups flour
- 2-3 tablespoons sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup shortening
- 6 tablespoons heavy cream
- 6 tablespoons buttermilk or sour cream
Place berries in a greased 2-quart baking dish. Mix sugar and flour, then add water and lemon juice. Pour this mixture over the berries. Bake at 350 degrees F for 15 minutes while you work on preparing the crust.
Mix the first 4 aforementioned crust ingredients: flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut in the shortening until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in cream and buttermilk or substitute sour cream. Knead dough 4 to 5 times. Roll to 1/4 inch thickness on floured board and cut to fit dish. After the berries have baked, place crust over hot berries, and brush with butter. Bake at 425 degrees F for 20-30 minutes to achieve optimum results!
