Marionberry Cobbler

Berry season is in full swing here in Oregon! My favorite time of year. Fresh strawberries, raspberries, loganberries, marionberries. We’ve go them all.

We had friends over for dessert this weekend. We sat in the backyard and enjoyed the beautiful summer weather we are FINALLY having. We had been to the farmer’s market the day before so I had a refrigerator full of fresh berries and some ripe strawberries in the garden so I was having a hard time deciding what to make for dessert – so many choices.

I decided on Marionberry Cobbler. I had just made it the week before and I don’t usually repeat a recipe quite so soon but I was still dreaming about this cobbler. Warm and soft on the inside and crisp and sweet on the top – yum!


The recipe, which is in her cookbook, is from the ever wonderful Pioneer Women. I found that her recipes rarely disappoint.

The cobbler is an easy one to make. Just a mixture of sugar, flour, milk, butter and berries. My favorite part is the sugar you sprinkle over the top right before baking and right before it comes out – it gives it that extra sweetness and crispness that I love.


The recipe calls for blackberries. I used marionberries which we grow here in Oregon. A combination of a raspberry and a blackberry. Or you could use raspberries, blueberries, blackberries or any wonderful combination there of.

Of course, at our house, cobbler MUST be eaten with ice cream. Vanilla ice cream. I just happened to have some homemade ice cream in the freezer but any good vanilla ice cream will do.


Just in case you are wondering – here’s a marionberry, ripening on the vine…


Marionberry Cobbler

ala Pioneer Women

  • 1 stick butter
  • 1-¼ cup sugar
  • 1 cup self-rising flour
  • 1 cup mMilk
  • 2 cups blackberries, marionberries,raspberries or blueberries or a combination (frozen or fresh)

Melt butter in a dish. Pour 1 cup of sugar and flour into a mixing bowl, whisking in milk. Mix well. Then, pour in melted butter and whisk it all well together. Butter a baking dish.

Now rinse and pat dry the berries. Pour the batter into the buttered baking dish. Sprinkle berries over the top of the batter; distributing evenly. Sprinkle ¼ cup sugar over the top.

Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 1 hour, or until golden and bubbly. If you desire, sprinkle an additional teaspoon of sugar over the cobbler 10 minutes before it’s done. I desire.
