August in Oregon means one thing…blackberries! And in our family, blackberries are meant to be put in yogurt, cereal, pies, popped into your mouth as you’re walking past the bowl and most of all, turned into blackberry cobbler.
If my parents happen to be visiting at this time of the year my mom has been known to put on dish gloves and climb up a step ladder so that she can dig through the prickly branches to get to all of those blackberries that are dangling just beyond our regular reach. It almost makes our hearts ache to see all of those juicy morsels hanging there and know that no one will ever get to enjoy them.
My husband rivals my mother in this obsession for blackberries (they’re like blackberry junkies!) so making the cobbler in these ramekins keeps the “hogging” to a minimum by giving everyone the same portion size.
I know there are MANY cobbler recipes out there but have you ever made it using Golden Grahams cereal? This was a very happy accident for me one day when I went to the pantry to pull out my cobbler ingredients and realized that I didn’t have any graham crackers.
A quick scan of the shelves provided the perfect solution! If I can use graham crackers in my cobbler, why couldn’t I use Golden Grahams cereal?
And since I’m slightly addicted to Golden Grahams cereal and my husband is slightly addicted to blackberries…
…this recipe seemed to be almost as much of a match made in heaven as we are!
- 1 cup Golden Grahams cereal, finely chopped/crushed
- 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup butter melted
- 1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 2-3 cups fresh blackberries
- Place small handful of blackberries on bottom of each ramekin.
- Mix all ingredients together and pour over top of blackberries and gently pat/press down.
- Place ramekins on cookie sheet filled with 1 cup of water to prevent burning the bottoms of the ramekins.
- Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.
- Serves 6
What about you? Have you ever had a “happy accident” while baking and created something even more amazing?
Do tell! 🙂
*I was not compensated in any way for professing my love of Golden Grahams cereal. But if they ever wanted to send me an lifetime supply of it I wouldn’t turn them down.* 😉

My blackberry bush has gone bonkers this year and I need to get picking. Love the idea of making individual servings way to make cobbler. My recipe is the old fashioned biscuit type and would work great in ramekins like this. I will have to try the Golden Grahams too, sounds delish!
YUM!!! We have blackberries in our backyard now! I can’t wait to pick them.
This looks absolutely delicious! Mount watering.. Thank you for this lovely post!

Those look absolutely delicious! They would not last long in my house at all!
Haha – I love your happy accident!! Usually my accidents in the kitchen are not ‘happy’ ones that’s for sure! Even my hubs, who is an excellent cook, made banana bread the other day…it tasted really weird and then he realized he used mint chocolate chips by accident not regular chocolate chips!! Lesson = don’t use mint chocolate in banana bread – bleh! lol!! Pinned!
Jennifer @ Celebrating Everyday Life says
This looks delicious! I used to love Golden Grahams – now I HAVE to pick some up from the store – YUM!!
I don’t use graham crackers … OR golden grahams in my cobblers! Definitely a twist on a cobbler recipe.
