Ingredients

Blueberry Mixture

  • 2 pints blueberries (about 4-½ cups)
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • Zest and juice from 1 lemon

Cobbler Topping

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • cup granulated sugar
  • 1-½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons cold butter, cut into pea-sized pieces
  • cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ scant teaspoon ground ginger

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • In a bowl, whisk together flour, ⅓ cup sugar, baking powder, salt, and ginger.
  • Next, cut in the butter, using your fingers, until it gets a bit crumbly.
  • Now, with a spoon, stir in the milk and vanilla extract until smooth.
  • In a separate bowl, stir together the blueberries, sugar, lemon juice, and lemon zest until all the blueberries are coated, then place the berries in the bottom of a Dutch oven.
  • Finally, spoon drops of cobbler batter here and there, on top of the blueberries.
  • Bake, uncovered, for 45 to 50 minutes or until the cobbler topping turns a light golden brown.
  • Let cool just slightly and serve warm, with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or homemade whipped cream.

Notes

  • Fresh or frozen berries? I used fresh blueberries for this recipe, as they're in season right now, but you can certainly make this blueberry cobbler with frozen berries instead.
 
  • Can you freeze fresh blueberries? Absolutely! If you like to get a lot of fresh blueberries when they're in season, but can't possibly eat them all (you must not live in my house), you can freeze them to enjoy throughout the year. Simply place the berries in a single on a baking sheet and freeze. Once they're frozen, place the frozen blueberries in ziploc bags and they should last for about one year.
