I am a super fan of this old-fashioned blueberry cobbler recipe; a warm, fruity dessert with a delicious gooey fruit centre topped with a soft, golden brown crust. You can use fresh or frozen blueberries; either works perfectly. Assemble this dish in less than 5 minutes and let the oven do it's magic.
Old Fashioned Blueberry Cobbler
I Love cobblers! Last week, I made this Easy Blackberry Cobbler With Cake Mix, and it was a hit; everyone loved it. And since my husband LOVES any old-fashioned fruit desserts, I made him this old-fashioned blueberry cobbler, which I will share with you guys.
But first, let me tell you how good this dessert is; it is SO fruity, gooey and super delicious.
I like to use fresh blueberries, but if you are using frozen ones, that is fine. However, there would be extra liquid from the freezing process of the blueberry. But don't worry because the liquid will only add to the syrupy texture of the blueberry cobbler.
If you don't like this syrupy texture, you can defrost them first, drain off all the excess water, and then use them.
The recipe is incredibly easy to assemble in less than 5 minutes. Mix the batter in one bowl, sprinkle the blueberries in the baking pan and then top it with the batter and bake until the fruit is bubbly and the top is golden brown.
So, get those fresh blueberries and some essential pantry ingredients to get this all started.
What You'll Need
Note: This is an overview of the ingredients. See the recipe card for full information on ingredients and quantities.
For the Blueberries
Fresh Blueberries: I prefer fresh blueberries, but seriously, the frozen ones work just fine. Blueberries are juicy, giving more flavor to the cobbler. I used 5 cups of blueberries.
Lemon Zest: A minimal amount of lemon zest help in enhancing and boosting flavors.
For the Batter
Flour: I used All-purpose flour, however, you can use self rising flour and skip the baking powder.
Milk: I use full fat milk as it is creamy and rich. However, you can use skimmed or dairy free milk if that's your favorite.
Vanilla Extract: To flavor, you may use lemon extract instead.
Butter: You may use coconut oil instead.
Egg: I used just one large egg.
Granulated Sugar: To sweeten the batter and the blueberries.
Baking Powder: Adding baking powder to the batter will help increase the volume and lighten the cobbler's texture.
Cinnamon: I like to add a woody, warming spice to my cobbler.
How to Make Old Fashioned Blueberry Cobbler?
One: Preheat the oven to 190C / 360F. Grease the bottom and sides of a 9×13 baking dish with butter.
Pro Tip: Make sure to grease the bottom of the baking dish with butter to prevent the cobbler from sticking to the pan.
Two (Prepare The Batter): In a mixing bowl, whisk egg, sugar, milk, vanilla extract, and melted butter together until combined.
Three: Mix in flour, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt, whisk until incorporated. Let the batter sit for 10 minutes until preparing the blueberries.
Four (Prepare The Blueberries): Wash the blueberries and let them dry a little on a paper towel. In a mixing bowl, combine blueberries with sugar, flour, and lemon zest. Then, spread the mixture in the prepared baking dish.
Five (Prepare The Cobbler): Drop spoonfuls of batter all over the blueberries, then bake for 30-35 minutes or until the top is golden brown.
You may store the cobbler in the fridge as long as it is tightly covered for up to five days. And since cobbler is best served warm, make sure to reheat it after keeping it in the fridge. Place it within the oven with 170 degrees of heat for 20 minutes.
Let the blueberry cobbler cool down for 10 to 15 minutes after taking it out of the oven. This will let the dessert cool and allow the juices to set and thicken a little.
