Blueberry Cobbler

By this time we should be fairly well moved in to our new digs in Lebanon, NH.  I've scheduled this post to appear on this date about one week after our arrival.  It is blueberry season in NH so I know we will be enjoying picking and eating them with granddaughters.

Until I get back to blogging enjoy this post from the past.

This one appeared 5 years ago today.

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 375ยบ 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.
