Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

Blueberry Cobbler

This is my go to recipe for an easy blueberry cobbler.  I can't take credit for it because I came upon it in Southern Living in 1983.  I have several of the Southern Living Annual Recipes Cookbooks but in this age of the internet, when it's easier to just do a search for a recipe, I use the cookbooks for the old favorites.  In fact I've written on the spine of the 1983 book to go to page 183 for blueberry cobbler.

3 cups fresh blueberries
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 cup flour
1 cup sugar
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons butter (or margarine) melted

Place blueberries in 10 x 6 x 2 inch baking dish and sprinkle with lemon juice.
Combine flour, sugar, egg, stir until mixture resembles coarse meal.
Spread over blueberries.
Drizzle melted butter on top.
Bake at 375º for 30 minutes.
Serve warm.
Yield: 6 servings.

(The recipe is attributed to Dottie Dear of Bronson, Florida.)

My variations:
Sprinkle on cinnamon on top of melted butter.
Mix blueberries with peaches.
Use another type of berry like blackberries.

I don't always use a rectangular baking dish.

Here's the flour, sugar and egg.  I use a fork to mix it.

The last time I made it I had ripe white peaches so I laid them on top.

Ready for the oven.  Nope sprinkle on some cinnamon first.

Three of us finished half of it for dessert.  My son-in-law William was visiting while Sarah was traveling to China.  We had it with ice cream on top.

Let me know if you try it and how you like it.
