Easy Mixed Berry Cobbler Recipe with Video

by Lorena

The most delicious cobbler I’ve ever had is this Mixed Berry Cobbler. This easy recipe is my kind of dessert, with a juicy berry filling and a buttery crust on top, served warmer with a scoop of ice cream. I promise that this easy berry cobbler recipe will be your go-to for any occasion where you need to impress but don’t have a lot of time to prep.

What’s a cobbler

A cobbler is a fruit dessert which has two distinct parts: a bottom layer with syrupy berries and a top part made of an easy batter that crisps up in the oven. The best part of a fruit cobbler is how easy they are to make. It has no pie crust or bottom crust of any kind, making it ten times easier than a berry pie recipe. This Mixed Berry Cobbler recipe is one of the most delicious recipes I’ve tried this year and to make it better it’s also the easiest I’ve made.

What fruits to use for a Mixed Berry Cobbler

When making this Mixed Berry Cobbler, you can use your favorite berries. In my case, I made a triple berry cobbler, mixing blackberries, blueberries and raspberries. These mixed berries make for a delicious dessert, with the perfect amount of tartness and sweetness. The juicy sweet berries mixed with the sugar and topped with the crispy cobbler topping make the most amazing mix! Having said this, you can easily take this recipe and use just one type of berry to make a blueberry cobbler, blackberry cobbler or strawberry cobbler. You can use both fresh fruit or go for frozen berries instead. If you use frozen berries then thaw them first completely to ensure that they bake properly in the oven.


The ingredients that you need to make this Mixed Berry Cobbler are really simple to get at local grocery stores. Here’s a list of what you will need:

  • Mixed berries: Of course, you need mixed berries for this Mixed Berry Cobbler. You can choose between blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, cherries and strawberries. 
  • Sugar: Sugar will add sweetness to the mix and also contribute to its syrupy texture in the end. You need this ingredient for both the base and the batter for the top as well. I use granulated white sugar but you can also swap it for brown sugar.
  • Cinnamon: I always like to add a bit of cinnamon every time I bake with berries, I think it pairs really nicely. You can also use lemon zest or other spices you typically use for a recipe like this.
  • Cornstarch: Cornstarch is the ingredient that binds the filling together and makes it thicker. This will make serving and eating all the more pleasurable. 
  • Unsalted butter: For the batter, the recipe uses room temperature butter as a fat. This adds a buttery texture and also that lovely butter flavour we adore.
  • Milk: The milk is part of the batter and will add moisture to the mix.
  • All-purpose flour: The flour binds everything together in the batter and turns it into a dough.
  • Baking powder: Baking powder makes the batter fluffier when baked so that it’s not rock hard.
  • Salt: A bit of salt helps to balance the flavours in every dessert, and this one is no exception.

How to make a mixed berry cobbler

As I said previously, this Mixed Berry Cobbler is very simple to make. For the base, you will combine berries with sugar, cinnamon, cornstarch and salt in a large bowl. Once combined they go into a baking dish. On top of the berry mixture goes the batter. To make it, you will combine both wet and dry ingredients in a medium bowl and then scoop that onto the berries. I like to use a large cookie scoop to do this because it helps to position it perfectly. Alternatively, you can use spoons to do this.

​Baking and serving

Once everything is in place, I dust the Mixed Berry Cobbler with a bit more coarse sugar (granulated) before baking. Bake at 180C/350F for 30-40 minutes or until you see that the top is golden brown and the berries are bubbling and thick. Bear in mind that as they cool they will become thicker. This time I used my charcoal-powered oven, the Keveri H1, to bake it. It’s an amazing addition to your backyard if you love to grill! Let the baked cobbler cool for at least 10 minutes before serving to allow everything to settle and serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. I’m an ice cream fan and love to try pairing this dessert with other flavours as well such as cinnamon, mascarpone, Fior di Latte, and more. Let me know which you like best!

For the filling

  • 1 kg mixed berries I used blackberries, blueberries and raspberries
  • 100 g sugar
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • 4 tbsp cornstarch

For the batter

  • 70 g unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 70 g sugar
  • 60 ml milk
  • 80 g all-purpose flour
  • tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt

For dusting

  • 1 tbsp sugar

For serving

  • Vanilla ice-cream


For the filling

  • Mix the berries with the rest of the ingredients.
  • Place the mix in a 30x20cm/12x8in baking dish.

For the batter

  • Using a whisk or electric mixer, mix the butter with the sugar.
  • Add the baking powder and salt and mix them in.
  • Add the milk and flour and also incorporate them with a whisk until you have a homogeneous mix.
  • Place generous tablespoons of batter on 5-6 spots of the baking dish on top of the strawberries. Here the objective is not to cover them completely because they look pretty. Consider also that the batter expands in the oven.
  • Dust the batter with sugar.
  • Bake the cobbler in a preheated oven at 180℃/350℉ for 25-30min or until nice and golden on top. Also, the filling should be bubbling.
  • Once it's off the oven, let it rest for 10 minutes. Serve with vanilla ice cream.
