Easy and Delicious Blueberry Cobbler

This blueberry cobbler recipe is both easy and delicious. It’s a variation on my nectarine cobbler and blackberry cobbler recipes as well as the canned fruit cobbler recipe. I love simple cobbler recipes, and since it’s berry season, I decided that it was time to make a blueberry cobbler. This easy and delicious blueberry cobbler recipe definitely lives up to it’s name. You won’t be disappointed with the results.

Fresh seasonal fruit and cobblers is something that I have enjoyed since I was a child. My mother used to make cobblers with whatever seasonal fruit was available. We didn’t have access to fresh blueberries where we lived, so blueberry cobblers weren’t something I grew up eating, but I have grown to love them.

How do you make the Easy and Delicious Blueberry Cobbler?

Making this blueberry cobbler is a really simple process. The first thing you need to do is put the butter or margarine in the bottom of your baking pan. Turn the oven on to preheat, and stick the pan in the oven to melt the butter.

A view of a cream colored batter spread across the bottom of an eight by eight pan with melted butter oozing out from around the edges.

While you’re waiting for the butter to melt, mix together the milk, flour, sugar, and baking powder to make the batter. Pull the pan out of the oven as soon as the butter is melted and pour the batter over the melted butter and spread it out to the corners of the pan.

Blueberries are evenly distributed on top of the cream colored batter. Melted butter continues to seep out from the edges of the batter, making small puddles of golden liquid on top of the batter. Sugar crystals which have been sprinkled on top of the berries are visible in the photo.

Evenly distribute the blueberries on top of the batter. This is not a mistake. Put the berries on top of the batter, arranging them so they are evenly distributed. Then, sprinkle the top with the reserved sugar.

The baked blueberry cobbler is in a pan. The crust is golden brown with some cracks in the surface where the cooked blueberry filling can be seen seeping though these cracks. Where the filling is emerging, there is a stark contrast between the golden crust and the dark purplish filling.

By this time, the oven will be preheated, so you can pop the blueberry cobbler in the oven to bake. In the oven is where the magic happens. As everything bakes, the batter rises to the top and the berries sink to the bottom.

The blueberry cobbler is in it's pan. The golden crust covers the top, but in the bottom left corner, a square of the cobbler has been cut away revealing a beautiful dark filling with visibl blueberries in it. A drop of the sweet filling has fallen onto the golden crust to the right of the hole leaving a purple dot of the sweeet filling on top of the crust.

The result is a beautiful blueberry cobbler that’s delicious served with a scoop of ice cream or topped with some whipped cream. The crust is golden and slightly crisp while the filling is sweet and gooey and loaded with the flavor of blueberries. I like to let the cobbler sit at room temperature for 15 to 30 minutes to allow it to cool enough, so no one will burn their mouths. (My eldest son severely burned his tongue from scarfing down a dessert that was way too hot, so we’re always cautious.)

A scoop of vanilla ice cream sits atop a piece of blueberry cobbler. The ice cream is creamy white and melting slightly as it sits atop the golden crust of the cobbler. Cracks in the crust show small areas with blueberries seeping through. Underneath, the gooey blueberry filling is visible spreading slightly out from the base of the piece of cobbler. The cobbler is sitting in a white bowl.

I don’t know if I prefer my cobbler served with ice cream or whipped cream. When I was a child, my mother would serve pieces of warm cobbler topped with a small amount of half and half poured over the top.

Notes

This recipe doubles well.  Simply bake in a 9X13 inch pan instead of the 8X8. 
To reduce the amount of added sugar in this recipe, you can substitute either monk fruit sweetener or splenda in place of the sugar in the batter.
To make this recipe vegan, substitute coconut oil or vegan butter for the butter or margarine, and use a non-dairy milk.  We have made a vegan pineapple cobbler before with these substitutions.

    I’ve never started a cobbler with melted butter at the bottom of the pan. Definitely will be trying out this recipe!

    1. Liz, my family has been making this cobbler forever. I like that I can be making the batter while the butter melts in the oven. The butter and the fruit become incorporated during the baking process. It’s like magic.
