Here’s an easy and delicious summer dessert for you to bake: Blueberry Cobbler
We had some neighbors coming over for a barbecue the other day, and I really needed to whip up a dessert quickly. Blueberry cobbler was the right choice. Just berries tossed with sugar and juice… laid into a pie plate… a simple, sweet batter spooned on top, and a quick 35 minutes in the oven. Mission Easy Dessert done!
I love it when a cobbler comes out of the oven all piping hot– the berries have morphed into being soft, sweet and syrupy. You’ll want a STRAW to suck up all of that fabulous juice.
Ice cream is the perfect topper for warm cobbler. The only bad thing about this recipe is that it was gone almost immediately, and we all wanted more! The teenagers at our barbecue dished up more ice cream and snaked the remaining bits of blueberry syrup from the pan. This is the perfect summer dessert recipe- especially if you have access to big, juicy, wonderful blueberries!
Yield: 6 servings
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 35 minutes
- 4 cups fresh blueberries
- 3 tablespoons granulated white sugar
- 1/3 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, at room temperature
- 1/2 cup granulated white sugar
- 1 large Eggland's Best egg
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- pinch of salt
- vanilla ice cream
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Spray a 9-inch pie plate with nonstick spray (not a deep dish).
- For the berries: in a medium bowl, toss together the berries, sugar and juice. Put the berry mixture into the prepared dish.
- For the cobbler: in a separate medium bowl, use an electric mixer to combine the butter and sugar; beat until light and fluffy. Mix in the egg and vanilla. Add flour, baking powder and salt, beating just until combined. Drop the batter by the spoonful on top of the berry mixture- covering as much of the top as possible with the batter.
- Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until the top is golden brown and the filling is bubbling. Let cool for a few minutes before serving. Serve in dishes with a scoop of ice cream on top.
