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

A few years ago, 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.

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!

  • 1/2 cup 1 stick salted butter
  • 2 pints fresh blueberries cleaned
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 cup self-rising flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 4 tablespoons salted butter
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk


  • Preheat oven to 350º F.
  • Melt butter in skillet over medium heat. Pour in blueberries, 3/4 cup sugar and water. Cook until a light syrup forms, about 5-8 minutes.
  • As blueberries are cooking, mix together flour and 1 tablespoon 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.
  • Stir blueberries and then drop dough by large 1/4 cup scoops into the skillet.
  • Place skillet in oven and bake until breading has cooked through and browned on top, about 15 minutes. Blueberry syrup should have also thickened.
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly. Serve while warm.

  1. 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!

  2. 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!

  3. Robyn, I was so drawn to your photography here for Blueberry Cobbler! What a great recipe! I make a pretty wicked Blueberry Cobbler, but I love that you make yours camp-style. Very cool. So happy to find your cheerful blog! Pinning to group boards at Pinterest! xo

    1. Hi Stacy, I looked at your website, and WOW! One look, and I signed up! Whew, you got some great looking deserts there! I can’t wait to check some of them out, they are absolutely gorgeous! And by the way, Robyn got it going on, with THIS peach cobbler! I sprinkled some cinammon, and put a dollop of whipped cream on BOTH of my bowls of it, and I’m laying down, as I write this…what can I say?? I pigged out! LOL…it’s THAT good! Simple to make too!
      I look forward to your desserts, too! Have mercy, between you and Robyn, I’m gonna be big as a house!! lol…

  4. Thanks for posting! Will be making this weekend with the Girl Scouts! I can attest this turned out fabulous!! 🙂

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

      1. Thank you! Your recipes are excellent. I have made the hummingbird cake with cream cheese frosting and the best chocolate cake with perfect buttercream frosting, all with great success.

  7. Just found your website and wanted to try one of your recipes…. and am very happy indeed!! Very fruity and just enough cake…lovely!! Thank you and can’t wait to try my next recipe.

    1. how do i know which sugar to add and at what time ,there is two different amounts at two different times??

    1. Hey Jude!
      I hope you enjoy this! It’s a delicious favorite we’ve loved for years!
      I’m glad you like the recipes – that makes my day!
      Thanks so much!!! xo

  8. I have two huge bushes of blueberries, and 4 baby ones from those, that me and my husband relocated, and must be a hundred blueberries on both of the big bushes. Their about 4 or 5 years old, and going strong! I live between Florence and Darlington, SC, and I wish I knew some people in that area, to give blueberries too! I just have tons of them, and hate to see them go to waste. I’m getting my refrigerator, and freezer full! I’m gonna ask someone I know, if I can borrow their big freezer.
    I eat tons of them too, and I’m getting started making recipes with them, but during the summer, it gets the house too warm, so I can’t cook too much.

    1. Wow, Joan, you are sure blessed with blueberries!!! I’m like you, I love eating blueberries every kind of way – and love them as a snack during the day too!
      I’ve got several recipes with Blueberries that I hope you enjoy too.
      It is hot here in the South during the summer, so hope you find ways to enjoy those blueberries – and stay cool! Thanks so much! xo

  9. Hi! Can this be baked in a regular glass pan and would the bake time/temp be any different? Thanks for all your wonderful recipes!!!
