Growing up, we had this amazing huge garden in our backyard. It was full of great delicious produce and BERRIES. Blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries that I could pick right off the bush.

My childhood is full of memories of my dad and I picking fresh berries. We would then come into the house and top them with vanilla ice cream. It is the definition of summer perfection.

That is what I am reminded of when I make this cobbler recipe and top it with ice cream. There is something so wonderfully magical about a cobbler recipe. It is like the deliciousness of a fruit pie without rolling out the crust.

This Blueberry Cobbler is an easy recipe that you will fall in love with. It can be made with fresh blueberries or frozen, making it a dessert that you can make all year round.

HOW TO MAKE BLUEBERRY COBBLER

Often cobbler recipes, like my Carmel Apple Cobbler, involve putting the crust into the bottom of the baking dish and topping it with fruit. The crust bakes up and around the fruit.

Since we are using blueberries, we opt to top the berries with the crust. This keeps the crust gorgeous and yellow, and not dyed by the blueberries during baking.

  1. Start this recipe by mixing the blueberries with sugar, lemon juice, and cinnamon right in the baking dish. It is important to let them sit while we are making our crust topping.
  2. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  3. Beat together the butter and sugar. Then beat in the milk, vanilla, and egg.
  4. Add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients until just combined.
  5. Top your blueberries with the crust, and bake.
  6. Remove from the oven and let sit until warm (not hot), about a half hour. Top with ice cream and serve.

FRESH OR FROZEN BLUEBERRIES

Fresh blueberries are one of my favorite snacks. But, they can be expensive, especially if you are buying them in the off season.

Frozen blueberries are amazing because they are picked and then frozen when they are at their peak of freshness. That makes them perfect in this recipe.

If you choose to use fresh blueberries, your cobbler will need less baking time, so be sure to keep an eye on it at around the 30 minute mark.

STORING AND REHEATING

This easy blueberry cobbler recipe is perfect for a party because it has 8 to 10 servings. If you are making it for your family, you may have left overs. This recipe reheats really well and is delicious the next day.

Store the leftovers (once completely cooled) in the baking dish, covered. Or you can transfer it to an airtight container. Leftovers can be reheated in the microwave or eaten cold. Eat any leftovers within 4 days of making.

    Lisa,

    Can I make this in a 8 x 8 pan, and would I need to adjust all the ingredients .

    Dick

    • Lisa Longley says

      I’m sorry Dick, I would have to test the recipe to give you the measurements for an 8×8 inch pan. It definitely would not work in that pan as is.

  2. Suzanne Blackie says

    5 stars
    Great recipe but, my husband is diabetic do you have anything low in sugar and carbs for the cobbler.

    • Lisa Longley says

      I’m sorry, Suzanne, I don’t. I would have to work on testing a low carb low sugar version. In the meantime, you can find great low sugar foods here and low carb recipes here.
