This easy blueberry cobbler is so mouthwatering, simple to make, and always garners rave reviews! It’s my go-to treat for busy days and it’s the perfect summer dessert the whole family will love. You can make it with fresh berries or frozen berries!
So after my grand blueberry picking adventure last week–I knew I had to make something from scratch with my fresh summer blueberries!
I have quite a few blueberry recipes I love, so it was hard to narrow it down…
I finally decided instead of making something old to create something new… this easy blueberry cobbler recipe. It’s a riff on an old fashioned peach cobbler recipe I grew up on…and that’s how this beautiful, delicious miracle was born.
This blueberry dessert is a thing of beauty– a golden brown crust, dotted with gorgeous blueberries!
Ingredients in Blueberry Cobbler
This recipe uses many classic ingredients that are probably already in your pantry, fridge and freezer!
- Blueberries — I love making this with fresh blueberries, but frozen work well too!
- Lemon juice — Just the right amount to balance out the sweetness! You can use freshly squeezed or already bottled lemon juice.
- Sugar — Granulated sugar adds the sweet flavor to the berries.
- Unsalted Butter — This is going to keep our cobbler from sticking, but also add amazing flavor to our blueberry dessert.
- Homemade Batter — Some cobbler recipes use premade mixes–but this super simple batter is made with sugar, flour, salt, milk and baking powder. It’s a mixture between a sponge cake and a butter cake. Certainly no dry cobbler here!
How to Make Blueberry Cobbler from Scratch

- Add milk and stir until combined.
- Drop batter into baking dish on top of butter.
- Combine juicy blueberries and lemon juice and then add to the top of the butter and batter.

Can you use frozen blueberries in this cobbler?
Yes! You can use frozen blueberries in this easy cobbler recipe! Defrost them overnight in the refrigerator, at room temperature or on the defrost setting of your microwave.
Just be sure to place them in a bowl first! Otherwise you will have blueberry juice EVERYWHERE. I promise, it is not easy to clean up from your fridge or countertop!
Can I make this cobbler recipe with a different fruit?
Yes, you absolutely can use a different fruit, especially a different berry like raspberry or sweet cherry would be absolutely divine! Also you can check out these two super easy fruit cobblers…
How to Store and Reheat Cobbler
When you taste the fresh from the oven cobbler topped with vanilla ice cream, you’ll know why leftovers are a complete rarity!
If you happen to have leftover cobbler you can store in the refrigerator for 4-5 days.
Reheat in the microwave in 20-30 seconds increments until warmed through.
