So this started out as a blackberry crisp…then as I started pulling it all together to cook for dessert, it morphed into a blackberry-raspberry cobbler. Crisps usually have oats in them, this one doesn’t…it’s made with yellow cake mix.
This poor dessert recipe is having a bit of an identity crisis – it’s part crisp-part cobbler, but really it’s a cobbler.
But let me tell you what really matters.
The fact that it’s ridiculously delicious.
This is what it looks like when it’s finished…see how it kinda looks like a crisp, but there aren’t any oats. So it’s really a cobbler. We’re back to the identity crisis thing.
Blackberries plus raspberries plus cake mix topping = the perfect summer dessert!
(Oh and not pictured…but this is best served warm with scoop of vanilla bean ice cream melting all over it!)
