Indulge in the warmth of a delightful Blueberry Cobbler, a dessert born from a love for comforting treats made with fresh fruit. Inspired by the success of my popular Peach Cobbler recipe and the personal favorite Triple Berry Crisp, this blueberry variation is sure to become a new household favorite.
Making Blueberry Cobbler:
Blueberry cobbler is a dessert that satisfies every sweet craving with minimal effort. This recipe, adapted from the beloved Peach Cobbler, allows you to use either fresh or frozen blueberries, making it a versatile treat for any occasion.
Can I Use Frozen Fruit for Cobbler?
Absolutely! Both this blueberry cobbler recipe and the peach cobbler recipe can seamlessly incorporate either fresh or frozen fruit. There’s no need to wait for the frozen fruit to completely thaw; it can be used straight from the freezer. The slight extra juice from the thawing process adds a delightful syrupy quality to the cobbler, enhancing its overall flavor.
Storing and Reheating Tips:
To enjoy the blueberry cobbler at its best, savor it warm right after baking. For any leftovers, store the cobbler covered in the refrigerator for 4-5 days.
When reheating, you can use either the microwave or oven. To reheat in the oven, allow the cobbler to come to room temperature and bake at 350 degrees F for approximately 20 minutes or until warmed through. If it starts browning too much, cover it with tin foil to preserve its delicious texture.
For the Filling:
- 4 cups blueberries (fresh or frozen)
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon lemon zest
- 6 tablespoons butter
For the Batter:
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup milk
- Ground cinnamon
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
- Slice the butter into pieces and add it to a 9×13 inch baking dish. Place the pan in the oven while preheating to allow the butter to melt. Once melted, remove the pan from the oven.
- In a bowl, combine blueberries, sugar, and lemon zest. Stir to combine.
- In a separate bowl, mix together the batter ingredients: flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Stir in the milk until just combined.
- Pour the blueberries over the melted butter in the pan. Drizzle the batter over the top and sprinkle with a bit of cinnamon.
- Bake at 350 degrees for about 35-40 minutes or until lightly golden on top.
