Easy Raspberry Cobbler

Delicious Raspberries

I consider myself lucky: I have wild raspberry bushes growing all over the mountainside where I live. Last summer, I picked pound after pound of raspberries. I had to eat most of them because I couldn't resist fresh, organic (because they're growing wild everywhere without my help) raspberries. I did save enough to make a few batches of raspberry cobbler.

The berries I used in the video are actually last year's berries (from 2011). I thawed them and they were so tasty!

I also love picking the leaves from raspberry bushes to make tea. Last year, I dried lots of leaves so I could enjoy raspberry leaf tea all winter. Now that it's summer, a new batch of raspberries and leaves are almost ready.

I wanted to share one of my favorite raspberry recipes: raspberry cobbler. There's nothing sweeter than warm raspberry cobbler on an overcast day, whether in summer or winter. It pairs up so well some creamy vanilla ice cream.

What Is Your Favorite Fruit To Use In Cobbler?

See results

Fruit cobbler

  • If you don't have raspberries, you can try using strawberries, blackberries, blueberries or even cherries. I have not tried this recipe with peaches, or apples, but I'm sure those would be good, too!
  • I have found that cobbler makes a really yummy breakfast treat. I admit I have a sweet tooth, but paired up with a fried egg and a little sausage, this is an irresistible treat.
  • I love to serve this with French vanilla ice cream. A little bit of mint on the side is a nice touch. Mint helps with digestion, which is why you often see it on dessert plates at restaurants.
  • No time to make cobbler? No problem! Enjoy fresh raspberries with heavy whipping cream and a little bit of sugar. You can also use them mixed-in with plain yogurt (I like to add granola, too) or as an ice cream topping.

Facts About Raspberries

  • Raspberries come in a variety of colors: red, black, purple and yellow.
  • Many varieties exist and can grow in Zones 3-9. It's always best to choose the variety appropriate for where you live. If you're lucky like me, they just grow wild all over the place in the mountains of western North Carolina.
  • They need full sun to grow and they like acidic soil.
  • They generally ripen from mid-June to fall, depending on the variety. If you plant varieties that ripen at different times, you can enjoy a long, constant harvest.
  • When you pick and/or buy raspberries, look for healthy, firm berries with vibrant color. When you get home, rinse them off and place in a bowl in a cooler part of the refrigerator. They will stay good for a few days. Otherwise, you'll need to freeze them.

      Loved the video; only one problem with it. I want to know why you didn't show yourself spilling anything....and there was no mess in the kitchen. How did you manage that? When Bev and I cook there is stuff all over the place. Way too neat if you ask me! LOL great job Lil' Sis!

      I'm not a big fan of raspberries but I'll make an exception for this delicious looking recipe. The video is what convinced me ;) Voting this Useful.

      That looks delicious! The only thing that would make this better, would be to bake it in a Dutch Oven. Great job, very useful.

      I had wild raspberries and blackberries where I grew up in ME. My mother made pies and jam with them, plus I sold some at the local campground. Since I am wheat intolerant, I can still work with this recipe. Thanks, Cindy!

      aviannovice - hey there! Thanks for stopping by. :) I live way out in the country and though I miss the convenience of the city, the one thing that keeps me firmly planted in the country are all the wild raspberries, blackberries and even blueberries growing. They're just that good. Hubhugs!

      Nice one! Looks easy to make. No kneading require unlike typical baking. I'm sure I could substitute with blueberry instead. What do you think? Also, where you recording it yourself with your right hand? Lol, I just noticed you were working with your left hand on the video, so I ask this petty question. (:

      CrisSp, yeah I'm left handed, hehe. Thanks for stopping by! No kneading required and you can substitute the same amount of blueberries :) But, yes, I was recording with my right hand as I went. You're not the only one to ask, hehe. Hubhugs to you.

      cclitgirl....OK....you pulled me in with the "Raspberries!" LOVE them. I usually don't read recipe hubs......I've been on an ongoing, all-out Kitchen strike for a while now. Trust me, I deserve the break.

      This recipe however sounds too delicious to pass up. I will actually drag myself to the market tomorrow and pick up the ingredients. Now that I'm drooling, I have no choice!

      My daughter was just recently convinced that she likes raspberries after picking some from the few bushes at my in laws farm. I envy you with your wild raspberry bushes. I wish there were some around here but I haven't been able to find any. In any case, I'll be making this soon with some peaches I have from last year.
