Blueberry Cobbler Recipe

Cobblers are hands down my favorite dessert to eat during the summertime. Peach Cobbler is my favorite, but this Blueberry Cobbler is a close second. Easy cobbler recipes are something I make all summer long. Not only do I love baking with in-season fruit, easy, no-fuss recipes are wonderful for the long, hot, lazy days of summer. Save the pie baking and cake baking for fall. Summer is for keeping it simple.

Fresh blueberries get tossed with sugar, a little cinnamon, and some orange juice. They are covered in a cobbler dough made with butter, sugar, eggs, flour, vanilla extract. and baking powder. Plus a little ground nutmeg for flavor.

35 minutes in the oven and the blueberries cook down wonderfully and turn a vibrant dark purple color.

The exterior of the cobbler topping gets a little crispy and crunchy, but it is nice and soft underneath, especially the parts that soak up the blueberry juices.

The ratio of blueberries to topping is just right.

Can Frozen Blueberries Be Used?

Yes! You can use either fresh or frozen blueberries for this recipe. If using frozen, thaw them first and drain off any liquid.

This recipe only makes an 8×8-inch pan and believe me it will disappear in a hurry!

How To Serve

A bowl of blueberry cobbler served warm with vanilla ice cream is the perfect way to finish off a light summer meal. Also tastes great with some fresh whipped cream.

Hot To Store

Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 4 days. Reheat in the microwave.

I like the taste of nutmeg in my cobbler, but if you are not a fan of it, leave it out.
