Spending time with family, relaxing in the sunshine, enjoying the beauty of the great outdoors–there is so much to love about camping. But let’s be honest, the food might just be the best part of all. For a dessert so delicious you’ll all be drooling over the campfire, look no further than this tasty blackberry campfire cobbler recipe! It’s so easy to make and so hard to stop eating!
What You’ll Need:
- Cast iron skillet
- Aluminum foil
- 1 C. Flour
- 1 C. White sugar
- 1/2 tsp. Cinnamon
- 1 Tbsp. Brown sugar
- 1 tsp. Lemon zest, grated
- Dash of salt
- 1 Stick of butter
- 4 C. Berries, rinsed and dried (Recommended fruit blends include blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, or strawberries)
Before you hit the road, take the time to pre-mix a few of your ingredients so meal prep at the campsite is even simpler. To create your mix ahead of time, combine the flour, sugars, cinnamon, lemon zest, and salt in a reusable container.
How To Make:
- Prepare your fire so that you have a hot bed of coals to cook over. Do not cook your cobbler over open flames or you will risk burning the bottom before the top has a chance to cook.
- Melt the butter over the fire in your cast iron skillet. Once the butter is melted, pour it into your container of pre-made mix and stir.
- Spread your berries so that they cover the bottom of your cast iron skillet in an even layer.
- Take your pre-made mixture with the butter added and pour it over the top of the berries, coating them evenly.
- Cover your skillet with aluminum foil before cooking over the coals for around 40 minutes, checking periodically.
- Once the top is golden brown and the berries are bubbling, remove your skillet from heat.
Make sure to give your cobbler plenty of time to cool off before digging in. To help it chill, serve it with a heaping spoonful of vanilla ice cream! You can also pair it with whipped cream or even Greek yogurt. Have a chilled piece of cobbler in the morning for a tasty blackberry breakfast! No matter how, when, or where you eat it, this cobbler dish won’t last long!
