Blueberry Cobbler For One

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.

Why This Recipe Works

  • This single serving cobbler is easier to make than pie. The berries are mixed with a little sugar and a touch of lemon juice which helps to create the sauce from the blueberries. There isn't a crust to make, instead 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.
  • You don't have to wait too long for the cobbler to cool before you dig in. I think a cobbler is best when it's warm from the oven. Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream and you'll be in dessert heaven!
  • This dessert is made with pantry staples. No fancy ingredients are even necessary.

Expert Tips

  • 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.
  • Feel free to switch up the type of berries you use. Consider using blackberries, chopped strawberries, raspberries or a mix of them all!
