Blueberry Cobbler with Vanilla Ice Cream

I recently made a blueberry cobbler that was so tasty, and incredibly simple.  Blueberry cobbler always reminds me of my childhood.  As a family, we would go to a local blueberry farm every summer and pick tons of blueberries.  Mom would always make a blueberry cobbler and serve it with vanilla ice cream.   She'd freeze the leftover berries so that we could make cobblers throughout the fall, too.

When searching for a recipe, I wanted to find something that  called for ingredients that I already had on hand. I can't stand buying an ingredient for a recipe that I will only use once.   The recipe I found only calls for six ingredients in addition to the fruit, and all of them are things you probably already have in your pantry or refrigerator.


3 to 4 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
1 cup plus one Tbsp sugar  
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
2/3 cup unsalted butter
1 egg, slightly beaten


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.  Place berries in the bottom of a greased 8x8 baking dish and sprinkle 1 Tbsp of sugar over them. In medium mixing bowl, sift all dry ingredients. Cut in butter and add beaten egg. (If you don't know how to cut in butter check out a video tutorial here.) Mix until crumbly and sprinkle over the berries, covering all exposed fruit. Bake for 35 minutes until golden.  Serve with vanilla ice cream.


  1. Can't wait for blueberry season! Our bushes are blooming - I hope this sudden frost doesn't hurt them. I'm completely drooling looking at this recipe!

  2. AND per usual- marking this recipe down! We love some blueberries in the Barcus household!!
