Blueberry Cobbler FAQ’s

Can I use frozen fruit to make blueberry cobbler?

Yes! The great thing about this easy blueberry cobbler recipe is you can use either fresh blueberries or frozen blueberries.

Even better, you don’t even have to thaw the frozen blueberries just add them in as-is.

Note: If using frozen blueberries there will be extra liquid from the thawing process when baked, and you will likely need to add a few extra minutes to your bake time.

Frozen blueberries tend to make the cobbler more syrupy than when using fresh, but it’s delicious either way!

 

Can I substitute all-purpose flour for self-rising flour?

Yes. If you don’t have self-rising flour you can still make this recipe with all-purpose flour and baking powder.

Learn how to make your own with this easy homemade recipe.

 

How long do you cook blueberry cobbler?

This cobbler typically takes 35-40 minutes to bake, but it of course depends on your oven and whether or not you use fresh or frozen blueberries.

If you use frozen blueberries, the baking time is typically 5-10 minutes longer, but adjust according to when it looks done to you.

Why is my cobbler soggy?

If your cobbler is soggy, it is likely because you added too much liquid or not enough flour.

Make sure you’re following the exact measurements listed in the recipe card and using measuring cups/spoons.

I also HIGHLY recommend using a food scale to weigh your flour.

It’s one of my essential baking tools and will really improve your baking.

Also, as mentioned above, your cobbler might have extra liquid in it from using frozen blueberries, and may require additional baking time.

 

Can you make blueberry cobbler ahead of time?

Yes, but I personally wouldn’t recommend it.

Blueberry cobbler is best served warm/fresh and this recipe is very simple + quick to make.

If you do want to make it ahead, prepare and bake as directed, allow to fully cool, and store in the fridge in an airtight container.

Once ready to serve, cover with aluminum foil and bake in the oven at 350 degrees F for 15-20 minutes or until warm.

 

Does blueberry cobbler need to be refrigerated?

Yes, homemade fruit cobbler should always be refrigerated in an airtight container.

This keeps it fresher longer and ensures it doesn’t grow mold it in it (yuck!)

When kept in the fridge, homemade blueberry cobbler will remain fresh for up to 3 days.

 

How to Store and Reheat Blueberry Cobbler

Refrigerate any leftover blueberry cobbler in an airtight container for up to 3 days.

To reheat, you can either microwave individual servings for 20-30 seconds or until warm, or bake covered with aluminum foil in the oven at 350 degrees F for 15 minutes, or until heated.

Recommended Kitchen Tools:

 

Step 1: Prepare Blueberry Mixture

Preheat oven and spray a baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.

Combine fresh or frozen blueberries with granulated sugar in a mixing bowl and set aside.

Step 2: Prepare Cobbler Cake Batter

In a large mixing bowl combine melted butter, sugar, milk that has been warmed for 30-45 seconds in the microwave, and vanilla extract and whisk until combined.

Add in flour in increments and gently stir until just combined. You want to avoid overmixing, and similar to muffin batter, it’s okay if there’s a few lumps.

Step 3: Pour Into Baking Dish

Next pour the cobbler cake batter into prepared baking dish. Evenly top with the blueberry mixture and do not stir.

Step 4: Bake and Cool

Bake the cobbler in the oven until the cobbler crust is a light golden brown and the cake center is firm.

My oven usually bakes it perfect at 45 minutes, but yours might be different.

Let the cobbler cool on a wire rack for at least 20-30 minutes before serving warm. This allows the juices in your cobbler to firm up a bit.

Step 5: Serve and Enjoy

Serve your cobbler warm and if desired, top with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.

Refrigerate any leftover blueberry cobbler in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
