Nothing says summer more than fresh juicy blueberries! Each tiny berry, bursting with flavor, leaves a memory of summer you’ll keep long after the leaves start to fall. Erik and I like to go to a blueberry farm to get our blueberries. Lucky for us there is a blueberry farm not too far away from where we live that keeps us in fresh supply of tart and delicious Maine blueberries!
With all the blueberry flavored things there are to make, share and enjoy, one of my absolute favorites is blueberry cobbler. It’s just not summer to me without having a big dish of warm blueberry cobbler with a heaping scoop (or two!) of vanilla ice cream on the side. So good!
When you’re working with something naturally delicious like blueberries, the less is more rule definitely applies. There is no need to add tons of ingredients for something simple like blueberry cobbler. You want to be able to taste the natural flavor without a lot of overbearing spices or ingredients. This recipe keeps things very simple making for a quick and easy dessert that tastes absolutely amazing. The batter is made by simply mixing together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Then adding in milk, melted butter and vanilla.
Next you spread the batter onto the bottom of a 8″ baking pan. Smooth the batter to the sides of the pan with a rubber spatula then top with the blueberries. Don’t mix the blueberries into the batter. As the cobbler bakes, the batter will rise to the top on it’s own! Last of all sprinkle a bit of sugar, about 1 tbsp. on top of the berries. Then bake in the oven preheated to 350 degrees F. for 35-40 minutes.
Serve warm with cold vanilla ice cream for a perfect summertime treat. I like to serve blueberry cobbler in a footed dessert dish for an elegant look. Between the style and taste, you’re sure to impress whoever you decide to share this delicious treat with!
