  • Blueberries: Both fresh and frozen and thawed blueberries work well for this cobbler. Got extra blueberries? Add a handful to Sheet Pan Pancakes, a Green Smoothie, or a mini Icebox Cake.
  • Sugar: Adds sweetness and helps turn the blueberries into a luscious sauce during baking.
  • Lemon juice: Elevates the overall flavor with a citrusy zing. Freshly squeezed or bottled, either will do the trick.
  • Flour: This pantry staple forms the base of the cobbler topping. For a gluten-free option, you can use a gluten-free 1:1 flour substitute.
  • Baking powder: Key for a fluffy, risen cobbler crust. Always double-check the freshness of your baking powder to ensure it performs as expected.
  • Salt: A pinch enhances the sweetness and rounds out the flavors, making it a must-add to your ingredient list.
  • Milk: This adds moisture to the cobbler topping. Feel free to use cow’s milk or plant-based alternatives like almond or soy milk.

Freezing Fresh Blueberries: A Simple Guide

Got a bounty of fresh blueberries? Freezing them is a cinch and extends their shelf life significantly. Just arrange the blueberries in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Pop the sheet into the freezer and wait until the berries are fully frozen. Once that’s done, shift the frozen blueberries into a ziplock freezer bag. Store them in your freezer, and they’ll stay good for up to six months. Perfect for off-season blueberry cobbler cravings!

Expert Tips

  • Temperature Matters: Preheating your oven is crucial. Make sure your oven reaches the exact temperature before you start baking. I recommend using an oven thermometer which can help with this and ensure consistency in your results.
  • Baking Sheet Hack: Always place your ramekin on a baking sheet. Not only does it make it easier to take in and out of the oven, but it also catches any spills, saving you from a potential oven clean-up.

Serving Suggestions

Enjoying a homemade dessert like this should be an experience! Here are a few ways to elevate your single-serving Blueberry Cobbler:

  • Ice Cream: A scoop of vanilla ice cream pairs wonderfully.
  • Whipped Cream: A dollop can add a luxurious touch.
  • Fresh Mint: A sprig for garnish adds color and aroma.
  • Nut Toppings: A sprinkle of crushed almonds or walnuts can add a crunch.

This cobbler recipe is versatile; you can use either fresh or frozen blueberries. If you opt for frozen, thawing them first is advisable. Using frozen blueberries without thawing will add extra liquid to the filling.

    When I made it the first time I was hooked. I used strawberries and blueberries that needed to be cooked or trashed that day. It was sooo good and easy. I have now made it many times with many
    varieties of fresh or frozen mixed berries.
