blackberry cobbler

The aroma of ripe blackberries and the warmth of a comforting cobbler combine to create the ultimate campfire dessert. This campfire blackberry cobbler recipe is delightfully simple and sure to satisfy the sweet tooth of every camper gathered around the flames.


– 4 cups fresh blackberries

– 1 cup plus one tablespoon sugar, divided

– 1 cup all-purpose flour

– 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder

– ½ teaspoon salt

– 1 cup milk

– ½ cup unsalted butter, melted

– Ice cream or whipped cream for serving (optional)


1. Begin by lighting your campfire and letting it burn down so you have a stable bed of coals.

2. toss the blackberries with one tablespoon of sugar in a mixing bowl. Set aside to let the berries macerate, drawing out their juices and intensifying the flavor.

3. whisk the remaining sugar, flour, baking powder, and salt in a separate bowl. Stir in the milk and melted butter to create a smooth batter.

4. Line a Dutch oven with aluminum foil and lightly coat it with cooking spray. Pour the batter into the Dutch oven, then evenly distribute the sugared blackberries over the top.

5. Place the Dutch oven on a grill grate over the campfire or directly onto the coals if you’re not using a grate. Put the lid on the Dutch oven and cover with hot coals for even cooking.

6. Bake for about 40-45 minutes until the top is golden brown and the berries are bubbling around the edges.

7. Carefully remove the Dutch oven from the campfire and allow the cobbler to cool slightly. The filling will be hot!

8. Serve warm, scooped into bowls or plates. Add a dollop of ice cream or a spoonful of whipped cream if desired for an extra-decadent treat.
