Units Scale

Blueberry Mixture

  • 2 cups fresh blueberries, cleaned and dried (or 2 cups frozen blueberries, not thawed)
  • 1 tbsp granulated sugar

Cobbler Cake Batter

  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup milk, warm
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 1/4 cup self-rising flour, sifted*


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and spray a 9×13 casserole dish (or something similar) with non-stick spray. I used an oval dish like this or you could even use a cast-iron.
  • In a medium mixing bowl combine fresh or frozen blueberries with granulated sugar. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl use a whisk to combine melted butter, sugar, milk that has been warmed for 30-45 seconds in the microwave, and vanilla extract.
  • Once mixed, add in flour in increments and gently stir until just combined, being careful to not overmix. Similar to muffin batter, it’s okay if there’s a few lumps.
  • Next pour the cobbler cake batter into prepared baking dish. Evenly top with the blueberry mixture and do not stir.
  • Bake in the oven for 40-45 minutes or until the cobbler crust is a light golden brown and the cake center is firm.
  • Remove from oven and place the cobbler on a wire rack to cool for at least 20-30 minutes before serving warm. This allows the juices in your cobbler to firm up a bit.
  • If desired, top with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream and enjoy!

Flour Substitute – If you don’t have self-rising flour, use this simple guide to make your own with all-purpose flour.

Storage – 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.

Topping Ideas: Serve with vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, or top it with a drizzle of cream cheese icing or lemon glaze.
