Step 1: Spray a casserole dish with cooking spray
Prepare a small, round casserole dish with nonstick cooking spray. Place the blackberries into the dish.
Step 2: Mix together the cake mix and butter
In a medium bowl or food processor, combine cake mix and butter until sandy. Stir in the lemon zest and cinnamon.
Step 3: Top the berries with cake mix mixture
Sprinkle the cake mix over the top of the blackberries.
Step 4: Cover the baking dish with foil
Cover the top of the casserole dish with aluminum foil to avoid water dripping into the cobbler.
Step 5: Add water to the Instant Pot
Prepare the electric pressure cooker with a trivet and 1 cup water (or as directed by the manufacturer for the minimum amount of water required.)
Step 6: Add the dish to the pressure cooker
Lower the casserole dish into the electric pressure cooker.
Step 7: Cook the blackberry cobbler
Cover the electric pressure cooker and set the valve to sealing. Program the electric pressure cooker using the “manual” or “pressure cook” on high for 10 minutes. After the cooking cycle is complete, allow the pressure to release naturally.
Step 8: Remove the dish from the pressure cooker
Carefully lift the casserole dish from the pressure cooker and remove the foil.
Step 9: Serve the cobbler warm
Serve the cobbler with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
Hint: Make sure to tightly cover your casserole dish with foil, so that no water gets into the cobbler.
- round casserole dish
- large bowl
- Instant Pot
- aluminum foil
Store the wet ingredients (lettuce, tomato, onion) separately from the dry ingredients (buns) in the fridge, and recombine when ready. Good for 2-3 days.
These ingredients don’t stand up well to freezing.
- If you don’t have an Instant Pot, you can make this cobbler in the oven! Bake at 350F for 30-40 minutes, or until the cobbler is bubbly and the topping is golden brown.
- Make sure that your dish fits completely into your Instant Pot. I used a 1 ½ quart casserole dish by Corningware.
- You can switch out the fruit in this recipe and use any type of fruit that you prefer. Such as apples, blueberries, or even raspberries.
- If a crunchier top is desired, preheat the broiler of the oven. Place the casserole under the broiler for about 3 minutes, watching carefully, until the desired golden color is achieved.
- You can use frozen blackberries instead of fresh berries.
- Use high pressure to cook this fruit cobbler.
- Make sure to allow the pressure to natural release for at least 15 minutes. Then, you can quick release the remaining pressure.
- If you don’t want to use a food processor you can use a pastry blender or pastry knife to blend the cake mix and butter.
