Becky’s Tips:

Choose ripe blackberries: The key to a flavorful cobbler lies in the quality of the blackberries. Opt for fresh, plump, and ripe berries. If fresh blackberries are not available, you can use frozen ones as well, but thaw them before using.

Adjust sweetness: Taste your blackberries before adding sugar. Depending on their natural sweetness, you may need to adjust the amount of sugar used in the recipe. Feel free to add a little more or less to suit your taste.

Customize the flavors: While the classic recipe calls for vanilla extract, you can experiment with other flavorings such as almond extract, cinnamon, or a hint of citrus zest to add a unique twist to your cobbler.

Serve it fresh: The cobbler is at its peak when served warm. The contrast between the hot blackberry filling and the cold ice cream is simply divine. Leftovers can be refrigerated and reheated, but the texture may change slightly.

Share the joy: This iron skillet blackberry cobbler is a crowd-pleaser. Consider making it for family gatherings, potlucks, or any special occasion. The rustic charm of the iron skillet and the burst of juicy blackberries are sure to impress your guests.
