Ingredients for Easy Blueberry Cobbler: 

Blueberries:  Use fresh or frozen or even canned blueberries. Understand that canned blueberries don’t hold up well though and may tint your batter blue and result in fewer blueberries in the actual cobbler.

If you LOVE BLUEBERRIES, by all means add MORE! Up to 4 cups will work (after that, there isn’t enough breading to hold the cobbler together). 

Self Rising Flour:  Make sure to use the self rising flour because it has extra ingredients that will puff and fluff the cobbler. 

Granulated White Sugar:  Because of the easy measurements and few ingredients, I wouldn’t recommend using a sugar substitute in this recipe. Just plain old white sugar will do. 

Butter:  It’s fine to use a butter substitute if you need to but real butter gives a flavor you can’t get otherwise. Use one stick or 8 tablespoons. 

Milk:  Use any % of milk you like, but I typically use whole milk for the added flavor and richness. I haven’t tried any milk substitutes with this, so let me know how it turns out! 

Vanilla, Almond Extract and Salt:  I add these to give a pop of flavor. Certainly not an absolute necessary ingredient for the recipe. 

How To Make Easy Blueberry Cobbler

This recipe couldn’t be easier! At home we call this “one cup cobbler” and you’ll soon see why.

Simply do the following: 

  1. Preheat the oven
  2. Melt the butter.
  3. Mix the flour, milk and sugar together. Add the melted butter. Add the flavoring ingredients. Then put it all in the baking dish!

So EASY!

Tips and Tricks for Perfect Easy Blueberry Cobbler

  • Be sure to prepare the pan with baking spray otherwise it is likely to stick to the baking dish. 
  • Use the best ingredients you can afford. Fresh blueberries always turn out the best. 
  • Frozen or Canned blueberries will work fine too. Canned blueberries tend to burst and fall apart more easily.
  • Gently fold the blueberries in at the end. Use a rubber spatula or wooden spoon to avoid breaking up your berries. 
  • If you prefer a more crunchy top, turn the broiler on for the last minute or so to brown the top. 
  • For MORE blueberry goodness, use up to 4 Cups of blueberries.
  • The blueberry is a terrific food for your health! Ever heard of a super food? Yep, give them a shot if you haven’t before! 

PRO TIP:  For a super flavor kick, mix in the zest of ½ a lemon. The tastes are perfect together. 

PRO TIP:  If you LOVE more fruit but don’t have any more blueberries, add in a drained can of peach slices. Peaches and blueberries are terrific together!

Hi, looks like a great recipe. However, I'm confused what you do with with the butter. Why is it set aside? Maybe I missed something here..
