Blueberry Cobbler made with fresh blueberries and a simple buttermilk biscuit topping

Josh got a little carried away at the grocery store and bought A LOT of blueberries. I am happy he came home with fruit instead of Cheetos or donuts, but I wasn’t sure what we were going to do with all of the blueberries. I made Banana Blueberry Baked Oatmeal Cups and salad, but we still had a ton leftover. I wanted a sweet treat so I pulled out all the stops and made an epic Blueberry Cobbler. This easy cobbler is a MUST make summer dessert!

I love making cobblers because you basically dump fruit into a pan, top it with an easy biscuit like topping, and bake it. It doesn’t get any easier than that!

For this recipe, I combined the blueberries with sugar, lemon zest, and cornstarch. I let them all hangout while I made the easy buttermilk biscuit topping. I spooned the cobbler topping onto the fruit, brushed with milk, and sprinkled on turbinado sugar. Bake until bubbly and you will have yourself a fabulous summer dessert.

A few cobbler tips:

  • I used fresh blueberries, but frozen blueberries work well in this recipe too.
  • Make sure your butter and buttermilk are cold.
  • The turbinado sugar gives the cobbler a nice, sugary crunch and it makes the cobbler pretty. Don’t skip this step.
  • Let the cobbler sit for about 15 minutes before serving so it can set up a little.
  • We like to serve the blueberry cobbler warm with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Ingredients

For the Blueberry Filling:

  • 6 cups blueberries
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • Zest of 1 large lemon
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

For the Cobbler Topping:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup unsalted cold butter cut into pieces
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup cold buttermilk
  • Heavy cream or milk for brushing
  • Turbinado sugar for sprinkling
  •  

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Put the blueberries in a large bowl.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the granulated sugar and lemon zest. Rub together with your fingers until fragrant. Add the sugar lemon mixture to the blueberries. Add the brown sugar and corn starch. Gently stir until blueberries are well coated. Let the mixture sit while you prepare the cobbler topping.
  4. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Cut the cold butter into the flour mixture with a pastry blender, two forks, or by using clean hands. Mix until the butter pieces are pea size.
  5. In a small bowl, whisk the cold buttermilk and vanilla together, then pour mixture into dry ingredients. Stir with a spatula until mixture comes together. Don't overmix, the dough will be sticky.
  6. Pour the blueberry mixture into a 9" x 13" pan. Drop pieces of the cobbler topping on top of the blueberries, it is fine if there is space between the cobbler topping. Lightly brush the cobbler topping with heavy cream or milk. Sprinkle turbinado sugar over the cobbler topping.
  7. Place in the oven and bake for 45-50 minutes or until the cobbler topping is golden brown and the blueberries are bubbling. Remove from the oven and let cool on wire rack for 15 minutes before serving. Serve with vanilla ice cream, if desired.
  8. Note-store cobbler, covered, in the refrigerator for 1-2 days. Reheat in the microwave, if desired.

  1. Awesome! The Mrs uses Blueberries in her porridge and she always buys a great big bag – she won’t miss a handful tonight when I make this, haha!

  2. Omg this looks amazingly delicious! I will take blueberries any way I can get them but this has got to be at the top of my list! Thanks for sharing yet another great recipe.


  3. This is a wonderful dessert!!!! Have made it 3 times since finding this recipe! Brought it to my friends home in Vermont, then 2 other times for beach house gatherings. Easy to make too. Thank you soooooo much!! Everyone loved this dessert.


  4. The cobbler topping turned out perfectly-light and fluffy.  The blueberry filling was pretty tart but i would definitely use the cobbler topping again with other fruit!

  5. Awesome Blueberry Cobbler Recipe, Easy too make and taste Delicious, I’ll make the peach Cobbler next.

    1. You can use apples, I would use the same amount of fruit. You can leave the turbinado sugar off if you don’t have it. A mixture of cinnamon and sugar would be good!

  6. Our family loves cobblers, but I have often had issues with the the cobbler topping staying light and crisp beyond the first day of baking. Do you have any solutions to keep the eventual sogginess at bay? Thanks!


  7. My topping was not light & fluffy. Wondering if some baking soda should be used because there is buttermilk [acid] in the recipe. Or did I just screw up e.i. over mix ?

  8. I’ve made this twice. The first time I made it, it was perfect! However, I made it for Sunday dinner last week and it was a little dry. Maybe, the blueberries weren’t as juicy as the ones I used the first time. It had a really good flavor though! I love your recipes!
