Blueberry Cobbler


It’s so great this time of year when all the berries are ripening. I especially like blueberries. They are so tasty and good for you. I eat them with yogurt, and freeze them to make smoothies. I had never made cobbler with them so I thought I would look for a recipe and make  with Katie today. Mom is with me this week so it’s fun to make a sweet treat for her. Katie likes to help me take care of her great grandma, especially baking sweets for her.

I looked on the Internet for a recipe but found a simple one in my favorite Betty Crocker cook book. I have had this cookbook for over 30 years and I have not been able to find a replacement. As you can see it’s well used. I adapted the recipe using whole wheat flour, sucanat and butter in replacement for all purpose flour, sugar and shortening.
 

You’ll need:

1/2 cup sucanat

1 tablespoon cornstarch

4 cups fresh blueberries

1 teaspoon lemon juice

1 cup whole wheat flour

1 tablespoon sugar

1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

3 tablespoons butter

1/2 cup milk

Mix 1/2 cup sucanat and cornstarch in medium saucepan. Smile Katie :)

Stir in blueberries and lemon juice.

Cook,  stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and boils.
 
Boil and stir for 1 minute.

Pour mixture into ungreased 2 quart casserole dish.

Keep blueberry mixture hot in oven while preparing biscuit topping.
Measure flour,1 tablespoon sucanat, baking powder and salt into a bowl.

Add butter and milk.

Cut in the butter and mix until dough holds together.

Drop dough by 6 spoonfuls over hot blueberry mixture.

Bake at 400 F for 25 to 30 minutes or until biscuit topping is golden brown.

This was so good warm! Tyler ate a whole piece himself.

I would definitely make this again. It wasn’t overly sweet which I like. You really taste the flavor of the blue berries. I think the next time I would spread the biscuit mixture around a bit more. Any variations in how you make with your cobbler?

    Oh my, I know another thing we have in common, I believe I have that same cookbook and I believe I got it when I left home. And it is in the same lovable shape yours is in. I love your sweet pictures making this awesome cobble with your sweet little ones. They are so precious and I am jealous you have so much time with them;) (mine live in LA and Houston). That little Katie is just so adorable!

    This cobbler looks great! Each BC cookbook is somewhat different. I want to find the one I have had for years for my daughter, so I am scouring eBay. :)

    1. Diane

      You’re right each one is different. Mine was part of a paper back box set. I never thought about Ebay. Thanks :)

  14. April @ The 21st Century Housewife

  15. Trish @ Uncommon

    Looks incredible! I totally need to take my girls to pick blueberries before they are out of season and will have to make some cobbler! Thanks for sharing with us this week!

    Take care,

    Trish

  17. Judy @Savoring Today

    I have that same cookbook and it looks just as loved-on as yours! I too have had mine for more than 25 years and won’t give it up for anything. It has had many recipe conversions to healthier ingredients too — looks like we have a lot in common in our kitchens. :) Your blueberry cobbler is making my mouth water. Thanks for sharing on Hearth & Soul Hop. :)

  18. Heather Diotte

    OMG It looks so scrumptious and I’ve gotta try it! Thanks for sharing!!

    I must say your recipe reminds me of my childhood visiting my grandparents during the summer. My Gran used to make Blueberry Cobbler with homemade vanilla ice-cream every Sunday and I loved it. The picture you enclosed looks so delicious that I’m going to try to make it soon..thanks for sharing!
