Blueberry Cobbler Recipe

Blueberry Cobbler. Doesn’t the name just make your mouth begin to water? It sure does mine.

This past weekend, my husband hosted another Scout group (not Little Buddy’s group) at the hangar for their rain gutter regatta and space derby. Since we weren’t in charge of the actual Scout group, we decided it would be an excellent time to try a new recipe (which I’ll be sharing with you tomorrow).

I also knew that I wanted to make this Blueberry Cobbler for dessert. Not only is this recipe fantastic when made conventionally at home, it is absolutely amazing when you cook it at a campsite.

Not that outside of a hangar at a regional airport is like a rough and toughing it sort of campsite, but you get the idea.

We learned a while back that with a lot of camp-style cooking, we like the convenience of using a cooking table that we bought from Lodge. Since my husband does a great deal of cooking on Scout camping trips, he was in full agreement that a camp cooking table was a very wise investment!

However, we also used it cooking outside while camping in our motorcoach in Disney World, so you can tell we love it!

Now, don’t get scared away from this recipe. I’m going to tell you how easy it is to make in your home kitchens.

You really won’t believe it.

The ingredients are simple. The resulting Blueberry Cobbler is seriously one of the best cobblers I’ve ever tasted.

Serves: 8
  • ½ cup (1 stick) butter, salted
  • 2 pints fresh blueberries, cleaned
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 cup self-rising flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 4 tablespoons butter, salted
  • ¾ cup buttermilk
  1. Preheat oven to 350º F.
  2. Melt butter in skillet over medium heat. Pour in blueberries, sugar and water. Cook until a light syrup forms, about 5-8 minutes.
  3. As blueberries are cooking, mix together flour and sugar. Cut in butter with a fork, pastry blender or with fingers just until crumbly. Stir in buttermilk just until combined. Dough will be very wet and sticky.
  4. Stir blueberries and then drop dough by large ¼ cup scoops into the skillet.
  5. Place skillet in oven and bake until breading has cooked through and browned on top, about 15 minutes. Blueberry syrup should have also thickened.
  6. Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly. Serve while warm.

    Question…I’m planning on making this…The directions dont specify which sugar or butter to use between the blueberry mix and the dough mix…should have been a little more specific.

    This is soooo good! I didn’t think that I could make the cobbler part due to the “cutting in” but I did it and it was amazing :) Thank you for this recipe and all of your recipes that you share.

    I love the idea of making this for camping! I don’t even like to camp, but with 3 boys who want to go I am not getting out of it. 😉 At least this will give me something to look forward to!

    Don’t laugh, but cobbler reminds me of when I worked at Cracker Barrel, back in college. It was the first time I had it! And I was hooked, cobbler is by far one of my favorite desserts to eat and make. I haven’t made one in forever. This looks absolutely delicious Robyn!
