Ingredients
  

  • 4 cups blueberries fresh or frozen
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 stick butter softened
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 tbsp corn starch
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup boiling water

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 375. Spray Dutch Oven lightly with cooking spray
  • Pour blueberries into bottom of Dutch Oven.
  • Cream 1/4 cup white sugar and 1/2 cup brown sugar with one stick softened butter. To cream these ingredients, use a hand mixer to fully incorporate the sugars into the butter.
  • Add salt, flour, baking powder and milk and continue mixing until a batter is formed. If your batter isn't spreadable, add 1/8-1/4 cup more milk.
  • Spread the batter over the blueberries
  • In a separate bowl, mix together white sugar, corn starch and a pinch of salt.
  • Sprinkle sugar mixture over all of batter
  • Heat 1/4 cup water in microwave for 40 seconds.
  • Pour water over all of the sugar - making sure that every grain of sugar is coated because THIS is where the magic happens!
  • Bake uncovered at 375 for 55-60 minutes or until the cobbler topping is done. Test with a cake tester or toothpick - if it comes out clean - it's done. Top should be golden brown.
  • Serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream

Notes

Can you use frozen, fresh or canned fruit?
My favorite is to use frozen or fresh blueberries – you could use blueberry pie filling but the fruit and batter make their own juice – so you just don’t need to use that gloppy canned stuff! The fruit flavor from fresh & frozen is WORTH IT!
Can I soften butter in the microwave?
Yes- you can – be sure to lower the power to LOW and microwave until soft but NOT melted. I prefer to leave the butter out on a sunny counter (on a plate) for a few hours.
What does “creaming” the butter and sugar together mean?
Use your hand mixer and beat the sugars and butter together until they’re fully incorporated and you don’t really see any sugar left. It takes 1-2 minutes.
Can you just use white or brown sugar instead of both?
Yes – definitely. I find the white sugar makes a better crust. I like the combination in the batter as it adds a bit of richness to the cake topping.
