- 1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 cup granulated sugar for the batter (plus more for sprinkling)
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 lemon – zest and juice
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 cup whole milk
- 1 3/4 cups fresh blueberries
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar for sprinkling on top
PREP: Adjust oven rack to the middle position. Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Melt butter on the stovetop in a 10-inch cast-iron skillet.
- As the butter is melting, take out a medium mixing bowl. Add the flour, 1 cup of granulated sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and lemon zest to the bowl. Whisk until combined. Add the milk, vanilla and lemon juice to the bowl. Whisk until the mixture is smooth.
- Briefly swirl the skillet to butter the sides of the pan. Pour the batter into the skillet, directly on top of the melted butter. Add the blueberries to the skillet, evenly scattering them on top of the batter. Sprinkle the surface with remaining granulated sugar. If desired, reserve one tablespoon of the sugar to sprinkle on top of the finished baked cobbler, giving it added sparkle and texture.
- Bake the berry cobbler for 30 minutes or until the topping is a beautiful golden brown and the blueberries are bubbly. Remove cobbler from the oven. Allow it to cool for 10 minutes.
- Serve blueberry cobbler directly from the skillet! Top each serving with a rounded scoop of vanilla ice cream!
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.
