A delicious Blueberry Cobbler with one secret ingredient to make it the best you’ve ever had! This cobbler can also be made year round utilizing fresh or frozen berries.
Blueberry Cobbler Recipe
Living in Oregon, it isn’t summer unless heaps of blueberries are involved. This means spending at least a few Saturdays at U-pick farms.
The best blueberry cobblers are juicy and sweet, guaranteed to stain your teeth a little, and require the biggest scoop of vanilla ice cream with every serving.
This cobbler a little secret that makes it the “blueberriest” of cobblers — and it’s not because extra blueberries were added to the batter.
Blueberry Cobbler Secret Ingredient
There are so many blueberry cobbler recipes out here in recipe land, but I have found that adding a pinch of ground coriander to the blueberry filling changes the taste of this cobbler immensely.
Coriander’s citrus notes and bright flavor really enhances the taste of the blueberries. The fruit seems sweeter and, really, the best version of itself. You do not taste the coriander in this dessert, but you will taste a jam-packed blueberry flavor, which is exactly what you want!
Ingredients for Blueberry Cobbler
Loads of blueberries are obviously key for this recipe, whether they are freshly picked or frozen. Either way, when combined with maple syrup, fresh lemon juice, coriander and vanilla, a delicious fruit slurry is concocted and becomes the base for your cobbler.
The crust has your usual suspects, such as butter, sugar, egg, flour and milk to name a few of the ingredients, that create the beautiful, golden top of this cobbler dessert.
Most likely you already have all of the ingredients in your pantry and refrigerator to complete this recipe.
How To Make Blueberry Cobbler
Blueberry cobbler is baked in the oven until the top is golden brown and the berry mixture is bubbly.
The blueberry mixture is put together in a mixing bowl and does not require any cooking on the stovetop as many recipes for cobbler do.
A stand or hand-held mixer is required to combine the butter, sugar, egg, flour and other ingredients. The milk is stirred in at the end.
The batter is dolloped over the blueberry mixture in an 8 x 8 pan and baked according to recipe directions.
Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
Keep this blueberry cobbler loosely covered at room temperature for up to three days.
Freezing Blueberry Cobbler
Cool the cobbler completely and cover tightly with a layer of plastic wrap and a layer of aluminum foil. Freeze for up to three months.
To reheat frozen cobbler, warm in a 350 degree F oven until warmed through and bubbly.
