Notes

You can make Blueberry Cobbler using fresh or frozen blueberries. The former will have a slightly thicker texture and fewer liquids, but it will still be a healthier alternative. The latter's high sugar content and brighter flavors will make it more appealing. This dessert is delicious served warm or chilled, either way. To make it even more appealing, you can top it with whipped cream. For the topping, mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, nutmeg, and salt. Pour the mixture over the berries and let it cool.

Blueberry Cobbler
The ultimate dessert pairing: warm cobbler and cold ice cream.

Ingredients:

For the Filling:

  • 4 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the Topping:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions:

  • Preheat Your Oven: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Place the oven rack in the middle position.
  • Prepare the Filling: In a large mixing bowl, combine the blueberries, 3/4 cup sugar, cornstarch, lemon juice, and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract. Mix gently to coat the blueberries evenly. Transfer this mixture to a 9×9-inch (23×23 cm) baking dish.
  • Prepare the Topping: In another mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, 1/2 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add the milk, melted butter, and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract. Stir until you have a smooth batter.
  • Add the Topping: Pour the batter over the blueberry mixture in the baking dish. Use a spatula to spread it out evenly.
  • Bake: Place the baking dish in the preheated oven and bake for about 40-45 minutes or until the topping is golden brown, and the blueberry filling is bubbling around the edges.
  • Serve: Remove the cobbler from the oven and let it cool slightly. Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of freshly whipped cream.

Tips for making Blueberry Cobbler

Blueberry Cobbler
Start with fresh, plump blueberries for the best cobbler.

Cooking Tips 

  • Selecting the Right Blueberries: Use fresh, plump blueberries for the best results. If using frozen, don’t thaw them; they’ll add moisture to the filling as they bake.
  • Balancing Sweetness: Taste your blueberries before adding sugar. If they’re very sweet, you can reduce the sugar in the filling slightly. Conversely, if they’re tart, you may want to add a bit more.
  • Don’t Overmix the Batter: When making the topping, avoid overmixing the batter. Mix until just combined to maintain a light and fluffy texture.
  • Even Distribution: Ensure an even distribution of blueberries in the baking dish to avoid uneven cooking. Spread them out evenly before adding the topping.
  • Golden Brown Perfection: Watch the cobbler closely during the last few minutes of baking to achieve that golden-brown topping. Every oven is different, so adjust the time if needed.
  • Rest and Serve: Let the cobbler cool for about 10-15 minutes after baking; it will be scorching hot straight from the oven. Serve warm for the best flavor.

  • Can I make Blueberry Cobbler in advance for a gathering? Yes, you can prepare the cobbler a day ahead and store it in the refrigerator. Warm it in the oven at a low temperature before serving.
  • Can I use a different type of flour for the topping? While all-purpose flour is traditional, you can experiment with whole wheat flour or gluten-free flour blends if dietary preferences or restrictions apply.
