Iron Skillet Blackberry Cobbler is a classic Southern dessert that is easy to make and packed with flavor. Unlike traditional cobblers, which are baked in a deep dish, this cobbler is made in a large iron skillet, giving it a unique and rustic look.
The dish starts with juicy blackberries, which are mixed with sugar, flour and butter (because who doesn’t love butter?) then topped with a simple pie-like topping. The skillet is then placed in the oven, allowing the cobbler to cook until the fruit is bubbly and the topping is golden brown. The combination of juicy blackberries and tender, flaky topping creates a sweet and comforting flavor, and the iron skillet ensures that the cobbler is cooked evenly and to perfection. Serve the Iron Skillet Blackberry Cobbler with a scoop of ice cream or a drizzle of heavy cream for a truly decadent treat.
