Easy Berry Cobbler From Scratch

An easy cobbler you can make with simple ingredients you've probably got on hand. Use any kind of berries you like!


  • 2 cups sugar (divided)
  • 1/3 cup butter (softened)
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 cups berries
  • 1 cup water (boiling)


  1. In large bowl, cream 1 cup of the sugar and all of the butter.

  2. In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, and salt. Add this mixture to the creamed sugar and butter, stir to combine.

  3. Add milk, mix well.

  4. Pour and spread batter into 12x8 or 10x7 pan.

  5. Pour berries over the batter and sprinkle with remaining sugar.

  6. Slowly pour boiling water over the top. Yes, this seems strange -- but you're doing it right!

  7. Bake at 350.  12x8 pan 45-55 minutes, 10x7 pan 60-70 minutes
