MONDAY RECIPE POST - BLUEBERRY COBBLER


Blueberry Cobbler

I found the recipe here at Circle B Kitchen.  It is actually called Blueberry Breakfast Cobbler at the website, but I served it after dinner.

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter at room temperature
Zest from 1 large lemon (optional)
7/8 cup sugar 
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon kosher salt
2 cups fresh blueberries
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons buttermilk
1 tablespoon raw sugar for sprinkling on top

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Grease a 9-inch square baking dish

In a large bowl, cream together the butter, lemon zest and sugar until light and fluffy.

Stir in the buttermilk.

Place the blueberries in a small bowl.

Place the 2 cups of flour in a medium bowl, and then remove 1/4 cup of the flour and add it to the blueberries in the small bowl. 

Toss together to coat the fruit.

Place the 2 cups of flour in the medium bowl, and then remove 1/4 cup of the flour and add it to the blueberries in the small bowl.  

Toss these together to coat the blueberries.  At this point you can also add an extra tablespoon of sugar along with the flour.

Add the baking powder and salt to the flour in the medium bowl and whisk to combine.

Add the flour mixture into the butter mixture.

Stir to combine.

The batter will be fairly stiff.

Spread 1/2 of the batter into the prepared pan and then top that with the blueberries.

Using your fingers, place the rest of the batter on the top, doing your best to cover the blueberries but it's fine if you have any gaps. It doesn't have to be perfect.  I say this because mine had a lot of gaps and it didn't detract from the look or the taste.

Sprinkle the top of the batter with the raw sugar.

Bake for 45 to 50 minutes or until the top begins to brown ever so slightly.  You don't want to get it very brown. 

Let cool for a little before serving.

And what did we think of this dish?  Very yummy!

There were a couple of changes made, but first of all I put mine in for 50 minutes and it came out darker than I would have liked but it still tasted great.  The next one I make I will pay more attention towards the end of cooking time and start looking at the 40 minute mark.

I didn't have enough blueberries so I used half blueberries and half strawberries.  I have mixed berries before and knew this would make a nice combination. 

I also did not have any buttermilk, so used my two-percent milk.

I didn't have any raw sugar and used regular. 


Thanks for looking and have a great week.

  11. Many thanks for sharing this recipe, it looks very nice.

    There is a lower carb version for cobbler/crumble which uses a mix of almond flour and coconut flour, you can see it here

  12. This blueberry cobler looks amazing, Denise. I wish I had a piece to go with my coffee right now. I love anything with blueberries. They are quite expensive at the stores right now. So, I don't get them often.
