Easy Blueberry Cobbler with a simple and delicious topping is a great dessert for these summer months. Use up those delicious fresh blueberries with this family friendly dessert.
Easy blueberry cobbler is a simple recipe that doesn’t take long to make and has only a handful of ingredients. It actually is quite similar to my peach dumpling recipe.
Fresh fruit is what we Illinoisans look forward to all winter. Being able to enjoy the sweet taste of ripe fruit and made into our favorite desserts is such a treat.
Can I use other fruit than blueberries?
Yup! You can use cherries or peaches or a combination of two of them. I used sour cherries in addition to the blueberries. It added a little tang to the sweet. :-)
There is no need to put any sugar on the berries. They are sweet enough and the cobbler topping has sugar in it.
If you want to, you can reduce the amount of sugar you add to the cobbler dough. It won’t effect the texture. It will, of course, make it less sweet.
Easy Blueberry Cobbler Instructions
First, put the fresh fruit in the bottom of a 9×13 baking dish. If using frozen fruit, I recommend rinsing it under cold water so the fruit thaws a little bit then let it drain in a colander.
Then mix all the cobbler ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. Stir well.
Then spread the dough mixture on top of the blueberries. Bake at 375* for 20-25 minutes until cooked through. You can test with a toothpick to see if the dough is done.
You can top the easy blueberry cobbler with ice cream or whipped cream. When the ice cream starts to melt on top of the warm cobbler it brings you back to yesteryear and Americana.
