This easy to make summertime cobbler with fresh blueberries will make your taste buds dance!


For the batter:

  • 6 tbsp. butter
  • 1 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1 c. granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • ¾ c. milk
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon

For the filling:

  • 4 c. blueberries, fresh or frozen
  • ½ c. sugar
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • Zest from the same lemon
  • 1 tsp. vanilla


  • Preheat your oven to 350.
  • Slice the butter into pieces and spread evenly in a 9×13 baking dish. While the oven is preheating, place the pan in the oven to melt and slightly brown the butter.
  • While the butter melts, mix all the filling ingredients in a mixing bowl. Stir to combine.
  • Check on the butter and make sure it isn’t burning. Remove the pan once the butter is melted and slightly browned. Make the batter by mixing the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a mixing bowl. Stir in the milk just until combined.
  • Pour the berry filling mixture into the pan over the butter. Drizzle the batter mixture over the top of that. Dust the top with the cinnamon.
  • Place in the oven and bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until its slightly golden brown on the top.
  • Serve warm with a scoop of icecream.
