Blueberries are the cutest fruit there is: Small, round, juicy, healthy. I love to eat them right out of the basket, for breakfast and as a snack, but I wanted something more. So, I searched for a recipe that would elevate the blueberries’ sweetness without overpowering it with unnecessary ingredients. I found the perfect recipe on allrecipes.com, the right combination of fruit, sugar and butter. (Although I made a few changes…less sugar and less butter).
2 Cups of blueberries and 1/2 Cup of frozen blueberries
3 Tablespoons of sugar
1 Tablespoon of lemon juice
2/3 Cup of flour
1/3 Cup of butter
1/2 Cup of sugar
1/4 Tablespoon of baking powder
First off, pre-heat the over at 375 F (190 degrees C). After washing the fresh blueberries, I added the 1/2 cup of frozen ones in a squared baking dish.
I added the sugar and the lemon juice and mixed the goodies together. Now, onto the crusty goodness. Cream the butter and sugar until fluffy.
Add egg and vanilla extract. Mix together. Slowly add baking powder and flour until the dough is sticky. Drop and spread the dough onto the blueberries. It’s important to try to spread the batter onto the entire surface, so that the blueberries are completely covered.
At this point, the cobbler is ready to go into the oven for 30 to 40 minutes or until the crust is a golden color.
I had no idea cobblers were this easy and this tasty. To complete the dish, I had to splurge on some vanilla ice cream. The hot and juicy blueberries are the perfect match for the cold ice cream.
