What Is An Air Fryer Berry Cobbler?
What is a cobbler? While there are several different opinions of what a cobbler is, the most common one is a dessert with fruit on the bottom and a biscuit topping.
The name cobbler comes from the olden days when there were cobblestone streets. Bakers agreed that the dessert looked like a cobblestone road; hence the name cobbler was born.
There are so many different cobblers, but most are made with berries, either blackberries, blueberries, strawberries, or even raspberries.
Ingredients Needed For Air Fryer Easy Blackberry Cobbler
With a few ingredients, you can have this delicious air fryer blackberry cobbler in the air fryer, and it’s fantastic!
The cobbler ingredients are straightforward; I wanted to bring a cobbler that everyone could prepare in minutes.
- Self-Rising Flour
- Granulated Sugar
- Lemon Zest
- Lemon-Lime Soda
- Fresh Or Frozen Blackberries
How To Make Air Fryer Easy Blackberry Cobbler
Place the butter in your baking pan and place it in the air fryer. Preheat the air fryer to 320°F, air fryer setting, and let the butter melt for 2-3 minutes while the air fryer is preheating.
Whisk the flour, sugar, salt, and lemon zest in a medium bowl. Add the melted butter and lemon-lime soda.
Whisk until all of the flour is incorporated. A few lumps are fine.
Pour the batter into your prepared pan and top with the blackberries. Cover the pan with foil and place it in the air fryer. Bake in the air fryer for 20 minutes or until the cobbler starts to puff and starts to look cooked around the edges. The center will not be fully cooked.
Remove the foil and cook for 15 more minutes or until the cobbler is golden brown and fully cooked in the center. A toothpick inserted in the center should come out clean. Let the cobbler cool for 5-10 minutes before serving. Serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream.
What will I need to complete this recipe?
You will need the following ingredients:
- Blackberries– this recipe was developed with frozen blackberries. Fresh blackberries are fine to use.
- Self-rising flour eliminates the need to measure the additional baking powder and baking soda.
- Butter- Unsalted
- Sugar-granulated sugar
- Salt- Morton’s kosher salt
- Lemon zest
- Lemon-lime soda– I used Mountain Dew. Store-brand soda is ok to use. You can even use ginger ale.
You will need the following supplies:
- 6 1/2 inch square cake pan
- Aluminum foil
- Mixing bowl
- Whisk or spatula
How To Store Air Fryer Easy Blackberry Cobbler
Store any leftover cobbler in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
Can I eat these warm or cold?
The blackberry cobbler is best served warm.
How can I make this vegan?
You can make this vegan by swapping out the butter with your favorite plant-based butter. You can also use neutral-flavored oil like canola or grapeseed oil—no need to preheat it since it’s already liquid. Just be sure to brush some of the oil on the pan before pouring your batter in.
What are substitutions I can make?
You can use blueberries, raspberries, or strawberries if you don’t have blackberries. I’d cut the strawberries in quarters so the pieces are smaller.
Can I make this in a round dish instead of a rectangle?
You can. Just be sure to watch it closely after you take the foil off. If your pan is more shallow than I used, cooking through will take less time.
Do I have to use lemon-lime soda?
This recipe was tested with mountain dew, but any similar soda should work. I’d recommend using Sprite, 7-up, or ginger ale if that’s what you have on hand. I do not recommend using plain soda water because it doesn’t have the flavor and sweetness needed to succeed in this recipe.
