BLUEBERRY COBBLER RECIPE

To make this easy blueberry cobbler, follow these simple step-by-step instructions. Because we’re multi-tasking by melting the butter while preparing the batter, the process below should take about 4 minutes.

  • STEP 1: Preheat oven to 350°F. Melt butter on the stovetop in a 10-inch cast-iron skillet.
  • STEP 2: In a mixing bowl whisk these dry ingredients together: flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and lemon zest.
  • STEP 3: Add the wet ingredients to the bowl: milk, vanilla and lemon juice. Whisk until the mixture is smooth.
  • STEP 4: Briefly swirl the butter in the skillet to butter the sides of the pan. This will help prevent the cobbler from sticking. Pour the batter into the skillet, directly on top of the butter.

  • STEP 3: Bake the berry cobbler for 30 minutes or until the topping is golden brown and the blueberries are bubbly.
  • STEP 4: Remove cobbler from the oven. Allow it to cool for 10 minutes.

EXPERT TIPS FOR BERRY COBBLER

  • TRY USING MIXED BERRIES: This recipe is very versatile! It’s delicious with raspberries, blackberries, or a combination of blueberries and blackberries. You can also use cherries, peaches or apples. Always taste the fruit before adding it to the recipe. If it’s tart, use a bit more sugar to balance things out.
  • CAN FROZEN BERRIES BE USED FOR COBBLER? If fresh blueberries are not available, frozen whole berries also work well!
  • CAN COBBLER BE MADE IN A BAKING DISH? Absolutely! If you don’t have a cast-iron skillet, this yummy berry cobbler can be made in a 9″ X 9″ baking dish. Simply butter down the sides of the dish and you’re ready to go! Follow the recipe instructions above.
  • CAN BLUEBERRY COBBLER BE FROZEN? This recipe’s delicate crust does not fare well when frozen. A cobbler with a heartier biscuit-dough topping will hold up much better in the freezer.

  1. My husband just tried to make this – he succeeded but did NOT use fresh ingredients like you did. He wanted the canned “blueberries” and hot damn, when he opened that can – it was just a can of SYRUP! Yuck! Fresh is best! ;)

  2. We love blueberries here :) We have been blueberry picking twice this year and so far I have made a lot of jam and fresh fruit desserts, but this cobbler is a must try! It looks amazing and so easy to make.

  3. I’ve been craving for this! I love skillet dessert, can’t wait to eat it with my favorite vanilla ice cream.

  4. 1st I wanna say that lemon zest on anything blueberry makes all the difference and 2 I was wondering about the clean up in the cast iron type pan? Difficult or not a problem?

    • Hello Maggie! I’m so glad you found this yummy blueberry cobbler recipe. My Staub cast-iron pan has an enameled interior that’s super easy to clean. But when Grandma made cobbler she used a Lodge cast-iron pan. I don’t remember whether it was easy to clean or not, but considering how often she made this recipe the clean-up probably wasn’t a lot of work. Here’s an affiliate link to the exact skillet I used for this recipe: https://amzn.to/2kh0Axz

  5. There’s nothing better than a good, classic blueberry cobbler recipe (á la mode of course) haha. Looks perfect!

  6. I really do love a good cobbler. I think they are great for having small gatherings of people over. THey are easy and look so fancy.

  7. One of our fave desserts is blackberry cobbler. I haven’t tried blueberry cobbler yet, but I will after seeing your recipe. Looks so good!
