Ok, I am an addict. A real life, bonafide addict. (How do you spell bonafide?) Anyway, I love berries and lemon. For real. I looooove, lurve, luf, berries and lemon. I’ll take them sweet, savory or a little bit of both. Kind of like this lemon strawberry shortcake, or these raspberry BBQ sliders (which are both crazy delicious). Don’t get me wrong, I love chocolate and savory things as well, like this inside out fried mozzarella pepperoni pizza, and there’s a whole list of other things I obsess over like Chef in Training’s SymphonyChocolate Bites (which by the way are the perfect snack for a movie theater- not that I’d ever sneak food in…) But berries, berries are my love. Especially in cobbler form.
Let’s get real for a moment, I almost didn’t post this recipe, because it turned out so stinking delicious I didn’t want to wait to take pictures, but I couldn’t hold back something as delicious as sweet blackberries paired with a lemony, tender, wonderful cobbler. I think I just drooled a little.
This is a recipe most of you are probably familiar with, and I totally grew up with. But my mom always made it in a dutch oven when we were camping and used a yellow cake mix. Since I cannot convince my husband to go tent camping I have to settle for the ol’ oven, but the fact that I switched the vanilla cake for a lemon one totally makes up for the camping disappointment. Seriously, it’s bright, warm, fresh, glorious, and amazing.
Plus, my sweet little one helped me make it and that always makes everything wonderful. Yes, she’s in her jammies, and sucking berry off her top lip, and sitting on the table That’s how we roll.
Are Blackberries Good For You?
Blackberries contain a wide array of important nutrients including potassium, magnesium and calcium, as well as vitamins A, C, E and most of our B vitamins.
Is a Cobbler The Same As A Crisp?
A cobbler is a deep-dish baked fruit dessert with a thick dropped-biscuit or pie dough topping.
A crisp, is a baked fruit dessert with a layer of topping, usually a streusel-like combination of flour, sugar and butter.

I made the lemon blackberry cobbler and it was delicious…
Thank you so much for the feedback!
want emailed recipe for lemon blackberry cobbler!
This recipe serves how many! (1 cup per person is not clear to me) I also noticed that most of your recipes are listed the same. I would love to receive a response. Thanks….
Hi, it’s quite hard to list servings as big and small eaters often complain that their “servings” were too much or too little. For us, this serves 6.
Love blackberries and lemon and I am making this right now can’t wait and beautiful little girl. This is my first post ever so excited
Hi Cindy! Thank you so much. That’s one of our favorites so I hope you loved it!
Made a version of this last nigh….SO DELICIOUS! I did blueberries and strawberries (I was going to do peaches and blueberries but I didn’t realize I was out of my bottled peaches!). Combined with the lemon cake mix was heavenly!
Yay!! And the peach version sounds awesome!
It looks like I have never heard about cobblers before… Can’t remember any familiar Russian equivalent of cobbler. I’d like to try. It looks yummy and easy to cook.
I just have some question. Could I ask, please?
1. First you make a kind of quick jam with flour, do you?
2. Then you add some dry cake. I often meet it in American receipts. Is it just ordinary cake mixture like “add water\milk\eggs\butter and have a cake”? And here you say something like “try to use lemon flavour instead of vanilla”, do you?
Sorry for such stupid questions. I just try to understand if I understood you correct.
and two more q-s
350 F or C?
1 stick of butter = 100gr?
No worries, Elina. So the berries are cooked with a little flour to thicken things up. Yes, it’s just the dry cake mix that you normally add an egg, water, etc but you skip those ingredients. And 350 Fahrenheit, and I believe 1/2 cup of butter is 113 grams.
Oh, it’s do kind of you. Thank you very much. I understood everything. I’ll try to do it this week.
I’m a berry-lemon addict too! Is there a group for that? 🙂

I love that you used a lemon cake for this. We make this all the time too, but I never thought about changing the cake flavor. Now you have my mind running in all kinds of directions.
RIGHT?!As soon as I did the lemon version I thought, Oh my gosh this just opened a brand new world!!!
Oh yum, this looks so perfect! I love cobbler 🙂 and your little one is too adorable!

Lemon and berries is one of my all time favorite flavor combinations. I would have a hard time fighting back the urge to eat this entire cobbler myself.

I’ve never done the lemon/berry thing, but I am planning on making up for lost time with this lovely cobbler…
My mother made a lot of blueberry cobblers because my cousin owned a blueberry farm. She always used a stick of butter and a white cake mix. It was heaven to me when I was little….
Thanks for the updated childhood memory!!
What a beautiful cobbler, this looks delicious! 🙂
This cobbler looks divine! I too love all things berries!
Rachel @ Baked by Rachel
Your daughter is such a cutie. I’m honestly totally with your husband. Even though I went camping plenty growing up, it’s not my cup of tea so I’ll gladly take this oven cobbler any day! 🙂
Your daughter is so cute!! I love that fun pic!
What a delicious cobbler. I love the lemon cake topping!
Barbara @ Barbara Bakes
Using lemon cake on top is a fun twist. Especially with blackberries.
