Blackberry Breakfast Cobbler is easy to make for a quick-fix breakfast. A delicious blackberry cobbler on top of a light and flaky crust!


Oh mercy! This blackberry breakfast cobbler is an absolute must-make! Seriously!

I’ve been thinking about making this for some time and finally got around to it this past weekend.

Why did I wait so long?!

It’s not like it is hard to make or anything. Actually, it’s fairly simple.

Let me show  you.


You mix up your biscuit dough, knead it with a little flour, and then gently pat into a rectangle about 1/2-inch thick.

Spread on blackberry jam and then sprinkle on fresh blackberries.


Roll your dough around the jam and blackberries. You don’t have to be extra careful at this point. The end result looks really rustic anyway. This blackberry breakfast cobbler is more about the taste than looking like a perfectly rolled dish anyway.


Slice your roll into about 2-inch slices and place into a buttered skillet or cake pan.

Drizzle with melted butter and a sprinkle on a little sugar.

Pop them into the preheated oven.


They’ll be done in just a few minutes and I like to serve them straight out of the skillet.

As in, watch out for forks coming at you from all directions from your family trying to sneak a bite of this cobbler before you can get pieces on their plate.

For real.


But, I have to admit that I may be the one that started it.


But who can resist?


Certainly not me.

Here’s the recipe for my Blackberry Breakfast Cobbler.

While this cobbler is delicious anytime, I highly recommend my Grandmother’s Southern Blackberry Cobbler as a dessert cobbler. It’s just hard to beat!
