If you’re looking for a great, old fashioned dessert, then my Gramma’s fruit dessert is one for you. A tasty, buttery batter gets poured over fresh seasonal berries of choice. It’s baked to a golden brown and is served warm and ready for a scoop of ice cream or whipped cream!

Gramma’s Easy Berry Cobbler

Digging into my mom’s recipe box for this one that my gramma used to make instead of her Apple Crisp, this triple berry cobbler always hits the spot and is SUPER easy to make, too.

What’s in a cobbler?

The usual suspects are all here. Sugar, flour, butter and fresh berries like raspberries, blackberries and blueberries, too. I love the fresh varieties and of course strawberries can be used as well, just none at the moment looked as good as these berries I used.

This isn’t a heavy dessert with a thick crust or streusel topping either. The topping is light and flaky, and you’ll love that it comes together in ONE bowl!

Is it a crumb or batter topping?

It’s definitely a batter! The batter that is poured over the berries is a light one. After scattering more berries on top, I sprinkle some finishing sugar on too, for a little sweet crunch appeal.

As is or with a scoop of ice cream or whipped cream on top. That seals the deal for a simple, fresh and light dessert that’s great for the family, an office party, church gathering or group potluck.

This easy berry cobbler has a buttery crust and is the perfect summer dessert. Make this recipe and serve with a scoop of ice cream!
Servings: 6 servings
Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 40 minutes
Total: 50 minutes



  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat a 11×7″ pan with cooking spray.
  • In a mixing bowl add the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and milk. Whisk to combine. Add the melted butter and vanilla and whisk until combined and a smooth batter.
  • Scatter 2 cups of berries on bottom of pan and pour batter evenly over top. Sprinkle remaining cup of berries on top, zest from half the lemon and finishing sugar.
  • Bake for 40-45 minutes, until golden brown. Serve warm with a scoop of ice cream or whipped cream.



  1. I use fresh berries, if using frozen, then thaw and drain excess liquid (drink it)!
  2. Finishing sugar is crystalized sugar that is used in baked goods as a topping. It’s crunchy, but feel free to substitute sugar if you can’t find it.

    This is both easy and delicious! The only change I made was to use even more betties – more like 4 cups. I shortened the baking time because I used convection, to about 35 minutes. Served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, it was very popular!
