Blueberries are one of my favorite fresh fruits! Straight off the blueberry bush, cold from the refrigerator, pop-in-my-mouth frozen mini treats, in a smoothie and in just about any recipe you can think of – I love ’em!
Did you know that they’re getting ready to come in season? Yep, I looked it up – domestic blueberries are in season April through September and once that wraps up, the imported varieties start flowing in to the grocery stores in the states.
In my opinion, you just can’t beat a blueberry cobbler! Warm out of the oven, topped with vanilla ice cream – oh my. This cobbler recipe has a cake topping, with a bit of a crunch on top and ooey-gooey blueberry goodness below. It’s absolutely perfect!
- 2 ½ cups fresh blueberries (may substitute frozen blueberries)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Juice of ½ fresh lemon
- 1 cup white granulated sugar
- ½ teaspoon all purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon butter, melted (do not substitute margerine)
- 1¾ cups all purpose flour
- 4 teaspoons baking powder
- 6 tablespoons + 2 teaspoons white granulated sugar
- 5 tablespoons butter (do not substitute margerine)
- 1 cup whole milk
- pinch of ground cinnamon
- Preheat oven to 375° F.
- Lightly grease an 8" iron skillet.
- Mix blueberries, vanilla and lemon juice together and place into bottom of skillet.
