Scoop of Blueberry Cobbler

Brian’s Blueberry Cobbler Recipe

When I first moved down to Georgia (well over a decade ago) all I could talk about was ice cream. It didn’t matter where it was from, that was my dessert of choice. Somehow I had never been introduced to the southern staple of cobbler. It took one plate (really one bite) and I was singing a different tune, maybe its because most folks tend to eat ice cream with cobbler.

There is something magical when berries start to break down in the cooking process and their natural sugars start to turn into a syrup. Combine that with more sugar, some batter, I don’t know why anyone would want any other kind of sweet.

Try this blueberry cobbler recipe out and hopefully you’ll never need another one. Keep in mind, this works great for any fruit cobbler, just swap out the blueberries for something else.

This is by far my favorite cobbler recipe. The best part is that you can substitute any fruit that you like. It even tastes great with fruit combos... if you want to get crazy!

Ingredients

  • 4 cups Blueberries (Fresh or Frozen)
  • 1 cup Light Brown Sugar (Loosely Packed)
  • 1 cup Granulated Sugar
  • 8 tablespoons Unsalted Butter
  • 1 1/2 cup Self Rising Flour
  • 1 1/2 cup Milk (Whatever kind you have will work)
  • 1/2 cup Water
  • 1 pinch Kosher Salt
  • 1 tablespoon Vanilla (Preferably the good stuff)

Note

For fruits that take longer to break down like peaches you would cook all of the fruit for the full 10 minutes. I like to have some blueberry texture in the finished product, so I add half at the beginning and the other half about 2/3 through the first phase of the recipe. Hope you love it as much as we do!

    I made this recipe 2 days ago with frozen blueberries and it turned out so well, I’m thinking about what other fruits I can make it with. Everyone loved it. Even with all the steps, it was still pretty easy and the crust was delicious.

    I’m so glad everyone loved it! Other fruits work really well. We’ve done mixed berry, strawberry, peach, apple. I think you could put just about anything in there and it would turn out great.
