Blueberry Cobbler

We have a blueberry bush and I like to use the blueberries in some baking. This cobbler was a good addition to my blueberry recipes. You could also use frozen berries.

Blueberry Cobbler
  • 12 tablespoons butter
  • 3 cups fresh blueberries
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1-1/2 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Melt 4 tablespoons of the butter and distribute evenly in your 8 inch square baking pan.
  3. Arrange the blueberries on top of the melted butter spreading evenly over bottom of pan.
  4. Mix 1/4 teaspoon of the salt with 1/4 cup of the sugar and sprinkle evenly over the blueberries.
  5. Melt the remaining 8 tablespoons of butter.
  6. Add some of the milk to temper the melted butter and then add the rest of the milk and egg to the butter and beat well.
  7. Mix the flour, baking powder, the remaining 1/2 cup sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon salt.
  8. Stir in the milk and egg mixture and beat until smooth.
  9. Drop the dough by spoonfuls evenly over the blueberries in the pan and spread carefully and evenly.
  10. Bake for 35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  11. Let cool slightly then serve with ice cream or whipped cream. 
You can serve this cake side up or berry side up.


  1. Oh my goodness, I must try this! Thanks for sharing.

  2. That looks perfect and sounds absolutely delicious Ellen!! So great to have your very own blueberry bush. I suppose you could also use frozen berries for this?

    1. Rosella, you can use frozen berries, too. I made a larger cobbler with frozen blueberries and frozen apple slices combined. It worked well.

  3. Oh, Ellen! This looks delicious! I used to bake every single day and now I bake ever once in awhile. I miss always having something sweet in the kitchen for when guests drop in. Love your recipes!
