For the Cobbler
- ½ cup butter unsalted
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 4 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 ½ cups granulated sugar for batter
- 2 cups milk
For the Filling
- 4 cups fresh blueberries or frozen
- 1 cup granulated sugar for blueberry mixture
- 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
- ¼ cup water
- Start by preheating your oven to 350°F (175°C), ensuring that the oven rack is positioned in the center for even baking.
- Place the ½ cup of unsalted butter into a 13x9 inch baking pan. Put the pan into the preheating oven to melt the butter. This should take about 5-7 minutes. Carefully remove the pan once the butter is melted, set aside.
- Meanwhile, prepare the blueberry mixture. In a medium saucepan, combine 4 cups of fresh blueberries, 1 cup of sugar, 1 tablespoon of freshly squeezed lemon juice, and ¼ cup of water. Stir this mixture together to ensure the blueberries are well coated with sugar.
- Place the saucepan on the stove over medium-high heat. Allow the mixture to come to a gentle boil, stirring occasionally to prevent the sugar from burning.
- Once the mixture has reached a boil, remove the saucepan from the heat and set it aside for later.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine 2 cups of all-purpose flour, 4 teaspoons of baking powder, 1 teaspoon of salt, and 1 ½ cups of sugar. Mix these dry ingredients together until they're evenly distributed.
- Pour 2 cups of milk into the bowl with your dry ingredients. Stir this mixture together until it forms a smooth batter. Be careful not to overmix as it can make your final product tough.
- Pour the batter directly into the pan containing the melted butter. Do not stir the batter and butter together. The butter will rise to the top during baking, creating a lovely, golden crust.
- Use a slotted spoon to scoop out the blueberries from your saucepan. Distribute the blueberries evenly over the top of the batter. The reason we use a slotted spoon is to leave behind most of the liquid in the pan, to prevent the batter from becoming overly moist.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
- Let the blueberry cake cool for a bit before serving. Enjoy it warm, maybe with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream. Enjoy!
- You can use frozen blueberries for this recipe, they work great!
- The cake will spring back when lightly touched when it's done. If when you touch it, it stays indented, it needs a few more minutes of cooking time.
- You can add a tablespoon of lemon zest to the batter if you want to add a lemony twist to this recipe.
Blueberry cobbler is a dessert that encapsulates the essence of summer—fresh, fruity, and full of joy. Enjoy the sweetness, savor the moments, and embrace the blissful experience of blueberry cobbler!
