This summer has been full of blueberries for me. I’ve been tossing them into my cereal or oatmeal during many mornings. I’ve got to get in extra servings of fruit for my growing baby! With still a few weeks left to go of blueberry season I wanted to share one of my favorite new recipes for an easy summer dessert. Once I got the recipe just how I wanted it, we loved it so much that I made it twice in one week. I definitely enjoyed some of the leftovers as an afternoon snack!
This blueberry cobbler is so simple to make. With just the right amount of sweetness (not too much), the top of the cobbler is almost a light cake texture. The bottom portion in contrast is chock full of a healthy dose of those blueberries. This is a great dessert for when you want something a little more healthy, or at least not too rich.
Here’s how this blueberry cobbler came to be: one evening I set out to make my mother’s peach cobbler for a dinner we were having. It was such a busy day of closing out one of my baby registries. I rushed home unsure that I’d have enough time to wash, peel, and slice all of those peaches before our guests arrived. As we left the baby store, my mother suggested I swap out the peaches for blueberries to speed things up. It was brilliant.
Peaches and blueberries contain differing amounts of sugar and do not bake the exact same. So, I made some ingredient changes to my mother’s original peach cobbler recipe. I wanted to get the right texture and level of sweetness for a blueberry cobbler. It was hard work y’all… I had to keep making (and eating) different blueberry cobblers.
The recipe follows below. This cobbler is best enjoyed on the day it is made and warm. It will last for a few days.
