Blueberries! Blueberry cobbler (and this cobbler, specifically) is the best dessert. Whether you make it with fresh blueberries from farmers’ market, or with frozen blueberries from the freezer section of the grocery store, this recipe will be a go-to for years to come.

Fresh Maryland blueberries for the best blueberry cobbler EVER!

Late spring and early summer is the time of year when blueberries are plentiful, thanks to garden bushes, farmers’ markets and, when I lived in Maryland, a great little farm stand nearby.

You can end up having enough to keep some in the fridge for cereal and yogurt toppings, fresh smoothies, to freeze for using later, and also to grab by the handful for easy snacks.

(And plenty left over for things like blueberry cobbler.)

B L U E B E R R Y  C O B B L E R!

Cobbler, as you well know, is one of my favorite desserts to make, and I’ve made it a dozen different ways: peach, blackberry, peach-blackberry, apple, strawberry — I could really go on and on.

Sometimes, though, you only want a classic flavor.

Blueberry Cobbler

Blueberry cobbler—this blueberry cobbler—is the best dessert ever!
This dessert creates a gorgeously perfect blueberry filling that practically makes itself while it bakes.

It has a fluffy, warm crust that’s golden on top and crispy around the edges, thanks to the stick of melted butter that kicks off the recipe…

And no, that’s not a topping — that’s a batter that bakes and rises up and around the ever-so-slightly-sweetened blueberries.

Like a blanket.

Only edible.

And delicious.

Whether it’s served warm just after baking, or left to room temp and spooned out with a dollop of ice cream, this recipe is sure to be a crowd-pleaser!

The best blueberry cobbler, EVER.


  • For the batter:
  • 1 stick salted butter
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract

For the blueberries:

  • 1 pint fresh blueberries
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons water or lemon juice


  1. Toss the blueberries, 1/4 cup sugar, and water or lemon juice together in a bowl and set them aside.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Put the butter in the bottom of deep 2-quart or 9x9" baking dish and then set it in the oven to melt. It's important that the dish is deep—at least 3".
  3. Meanwhile, make a batter of the remaining ingredients and pour it over the melted butter—do not stir. Drop the blueberries on top of batter; again—do not stir.
  4. Bake the blueberry cobbler, uncovered, until the crust is light brown and puffy, approximately 35 to 45 minutes.
  5. Let it stand for 15 minutes before serving!


You can substitute frozen, thawed blueberries for fresh — no problem!
