Instant Pot 3-Ingredient Blackberry Cobbler

  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 10 minutes (plus 10 minute NPR)
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x


Fresh blackberries are topped with a white cake mix/butter mixture and cooked quickly in your electric pressure cooker. Serve topped with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream and enjoy an amazing dessert with minimal work and time!


Units Scale
  • 1 (12 oz) package of fresh blackberries, washed and patted dry
  • 8 oz of a white cake mix (this will be about half the package)
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 cup water (for the bottom of the Instant Pot)


  1. Spray an oven safe dish that will fit inside your Instant Pot with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Put the berries into the bottom of the dish.
  3. In a medium bowl use a pastry blender to cut the butter into the cake mix until it is crumbly.
  4. Spread the cake mix mixture over the blackberries.
  5. Cover the dish with foil (this will prevent the top from getting mushy).
  6. Pour 1 cup of water into the bottom of your Instant Pot. Place a trivet in the bottom of the pot. Carefully lower the pan onto the trivet.
  7. Cover the Instant Pot and make sure the valve is set to “sealing.” Set the timer on manual for 10 minutes (it should be on high pressure). Once the timer beeps let the pressure come down naturally for 10 minutes. Then release any extra pressure by switching the valve to “venting.”
  8. Remove the lid. Using hot pads, carefully lift the trivet and bowl out of the Instant Pot. If you’d like to brown the top of the cobbler you can do this by removing the foil and sticking the bowl under the broiler of your oven for 3-4 minutes.
  9. Serve the cobbler with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.

You can easily double this recipe. It was just enough for the four of us but if you want seconds, which you will, you’ll need more.

I haven’t tried frozen berries yet. I am not sure you’d get the same awesome results. If the fruit is frozen the cobbler might come out mushy with too much liquid.

The pan I used:  7 inch cake pan with 4 inch sides.*

I used the trivet that came with my Instant Pot. Which is similar to this trivet *.

Digital scale to measure out cake mix precisely.*

A pastry blender comes in handy to cut the butter into the cake mix for this recipe but it is not necessary. You can also use a fork if you’re in a pinch.

I my 6 quart Instant Pot Duo 60 7 in 1*. I have really loved this Instant Pot. You could also make this in an 8 quart pot.
