Easy Blueberry Cobbler

Are you looking for an easy dessert recipe?  Something so easy but it’s actually impressive too?  And do you happen to have some fresh blueberries on hand?  This easy Blueberry Cobbler recipe is for you.

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!

Blueberry Cobbler

I love it when a cobbler comes out of the oven all piping hot– the fresh blueberries have morphed into being soft, sweet and syrupy.  You’ll want a STRAW to suck up all of that fabulous, sugary blueberry juice.

Blueberry Cobbler topped with vanilla ice cream

Ice cream is the perfect topper for warm cobbler.  The only bad thing about this recipe is that it will be gone almost immediately upon serving, and you will wish you had 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!

How is cobbler different than a crisp or crumble?

A cobbler is fresh fruit in a pan that is typically topped with a sweet batter before baking.  The topping on a fruit crisp (or crumble) usually consists of some sort of sweetened oat mixture.  Both are delicious served warm with ice cream or whipped cream!

Ingredients

BERRY MIXTURE:

  • 4 cups fresh blueberries
  • 3 tablespoons granulated white sugar
  • 1/3 cup freshly squeezed orange juice

COBBLER:

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup granulated white sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • pinch of salt

FOR SERVING:

  • vanilla ice cream, optional

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Spray a 9-inch pie plate with nonstick spray (not a deep dish).

PREPARE THE BERRIES:

  1. In a medium bowl, toss together the berries, sugar and juice. Put the berry mixture into the prepared dish.

PREPARE THE COBBLER:

  1. 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.

  2. 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 (if desired).

    Made this today after finding boxes of blueberries on a buy one, get one deal at the grocery store. Three of us finished the entire pan! Seriously . . . so good.

    Wanted to make this in a 9×13 pan…serving 11. Would you just double the recipe? I made this past weekend with mixed berries (added blackberry and raspberry to blueberries). SO good!

    • Lori Lange wrote:

      I think doubling and putting in a 9×13 would probably work. Glad you are enjoying the recipe!

    Used frozen blueberries, used lemon juice instead of orange – 5 cups of berries instead of 4 – fabulous recipe !  All gone – served 6 of us with cool whip.

    Hi,

    I tried this last night with Saskatoon Berries (Juneberry?) as I was out of Blueberries. It turned out great. Thank you for the delicious recipe, I saw it on your Facebook post.

      Yes, that will probably work find.

    Made this the other night and it was great. I am not a huge fan of blueberries though…would you have to edit the orange juice part if you used fresh peaches to make this into a peach cobbler recipe?

    • Lori Lange wrote:

      I think you could still use orange juice.

  • Michelle wrote:

    Have you ever prepared this & put it in the fridge then baked later? 

    • Lori Lange wrote:

      No, I haven’t… But it should heat up well if you make it and then re-heat it later.

  • Amanda LaBove wrote:

    I made this tonight and it is delicious!! Thank you so much for this recipe. I will definitely be making it again.

  • Jenny wrote:

    could you substitute lemon juice for all or part of the orange juice? How much of the orange flavor comes through in the final product?

    • Lori Lange wrote:

      I feel like lemon would bring forth too much bitter flavor into the recipe.

    This is my favorite saved recipe, but now it’s changed! Where’s my saved recipe with self rising flour!? Did you change it? Can I please have the old one?

    • Lori Lange wrote:

      Hi Kari, I was getting a lot of emails from readers that the old recipe didn’t work well… so I’m afraid I changed it. Here is a list of the ingredients for the old recipe (sorry for the inconvenience!):
      2 cups fresh blueberries
      1 1/4 cups white sugar granulated, divided
      1/2 cup butter
      1 cup self rising flour
      1 cup milk
      1 tsp vanilla extract

    I made this over the weekend and it was delicious! Just the right combination of sweet and tart.

  • Tessa Hill wrote:

    Can you use frozen blueberries (thawed, of course) rather than fresh?

    • Lori Lange wrote:

      I suppose you could, but my guess is that it will turn out far more syrupy than a fresh version…

  • Lori Lange wrote:

    Was the blueberry mixture too soupy? Perhaps too much water and it didn’t have a chance to thicken?
