Easy single serving blueberry cobbler recipe made with a handful of fresh or frozen blueberries and a few simple pantry ingredients.
If you’ve got fresh blueberries on hand, this easy blueberry cobbler recipe is for you. It’s a made from scratch dessert where the blueberries really shine.
The berries are mixed with a little sugar and a touch of lemon juice which helps to create the sauce from the blueberries. The blueberries are topped with a simple batter which is drizzled over the top. As the cobbler bakes, the top browns and forms a crust much like a biscuit.
Can I Use Fresh or Frozen Blueberries To Make Cobbler?
You can make this easy blueberry cobbler recipe with fresh blueberries, or with frozen blueberries. Either kind will work just perfectly.
You can either thaw the frozen blueberries before using or use them as frozen.
Pro Tip: If you have an abundance of fresh blueberries, you can easily freeze them by placing them in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Place the baking sheet in the freezer until the blueberries are completely frozen. Then, transfer the frozen berries to a zip top freezer bag and store in the freezer for up to 6 months.
