True story – I actually had a dream about this recipe. As soon as I woke up, I had to search for a blackberry cobbler recipe made with donuts (I blame the pregnancy), but there were none to be found! I decided that I needed to experiment until I perfected my own recipe to fulfill my craving and finally created the perfect rendition. I hope you all enjoy this decadent Krispy Kreme Donut Blackberry Cobbler as much as I do!
I grew up making blackberry cobblers with my mom and my cousin. We would add a scoop of ice cream and drizzle a little bit of honey on top. Indulgent, I know! But that’s how I do things. 😉 It was one of my favorite desserts growing up and reminds me of sweet memories spent in the kitchen with my family during the cold winter months.
My mom’s blackberry cobbler recipe is pretty much perfect, but there’s no harm done in occasionally replacing that topping with delicious Krispy Kreme glazed donuts sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar. I love how quick and easy it is to make – especially because we often have a lot of last minute guests!
This decadent dessert is best served warm and topped with a little vanilla ice cream. I hope you enjoy!

- 1/2 Cup Sugar
- 1 Tsp. Lemon Zest
- 1/4 Cup Water
- 1 Tbsp. Butter (Melted)
- 2 tsp. Sugar
- 1/2 tsp. Cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Break apart 6 Krispy Kreme donuts into pieces and place along bottom of a 8x8 or 9x13 baking dish.
In a medium pot, combine blackberries, sugar, lemon zest and water. Bring ingredients to a full boil. Once boiling, reduce the blackberry mixture to a simmer and allow to cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally with a rubber spatula.
While blackberries are simmering, combine the 2 tsp. sugar and 1/2 tsp. cinnamon in a small bowl and set aside.
Once heated through and thickened, pour the blackberry mixture evenly over donuts in baking dish. Break apart remaining 6 donuts into small pieces and place on top of blackberry mixture.
Drizzle melted butter evenly on top of donuts and sprinkle cinnamon sugar (to taste.)
Place in oven and bake for 15-17 minutes, until donuts are slightly crisp.
Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Enjoy!
