Magic Blueberry Cobbler

September 27, 2021Teresa

Magic Blueberry Cobbler is so sensational it’s good down to the last spoonful. There isn’t anything about this cobbler recipe that I don’t like. The texture is fluffy, not hard and tough like some cobbler toppings. It has just the right amount of sweetness and flavors. This recipe uses fresh blueberries and almond extract to provide flavors and zip that make it just about perfect in my opinion.

I have a friend who lives in Midlothian (south of the Dallas Metroplex) and we try to get together once or twice a month to talk and catch up. It’s about an hour’s drive from where we currently live so it’s a sacrifice for whoever is driving that particular time. In late July she was up to our home. I served a delicious Italian Roasted Tomato Soup, garlic bread and this fantastic dessert with ice cream. We were both drooling over that meal. She follows my blog, so I try to give her new recipes every now and then. She tries out many of them on her family here and in Ohio.

Magic Blueberry Cobbler turned out heavenly. A cornstarch and sugar mixture is spread over the topping layer and then water poured over top before baking. Once the cobbler is baked, it looks like glazed sugar donuts on top! It tastes amazing too. We loved the recipe and I ended up eating my share of cobbler before I finally stashed the rest of it in the freezer for later. 🙂

Magic Blueberry Cobbler is a great dessert for family and friends. Blueberries are available year round so this dessert can be made for any holiday, company dinner or just because you enjoy blueberries. This cobbler recipe is also pretty straightforward. I had mine ready for the oven in about 10 minutes. Grab the ice cream and share this fantastic dessert with your friends the next time you have a gathering.

The glazed sugar on top reminded us of glazed donuts! The topping is soft in texture rather than hard and tough.

    Curious to know if vanilla bean scraped can be used in place of pure vanilla extract? Also how would using a spray bottle with the hot water to evenly wet the surface

      Hi. I think scraped vanilla bean would be way too strong for the recipe. I do think the spray bottle with hot water would work though.

    How can we convert to gluten-free? I have some Bobs Red Mill GF 1:1 mix, but that isn’t this….. 😋 I try to avoid corn for inflammation- but for this I kay make an exception. Also would prefer honey to sugar….. 😬 I have an abdominal condition &I’m always fighting inflammation. Thanks 🙏

      Hi, Fiona. My favorite gluten free flour is Cup4Cup if you can find it. Pillsbury also makes a pretty decent one. I’m not sure how this would turn out with honey. You might try stevia as well as an option.

    I have a freezer full of blueberries from this past summer’s INCREDIBLE harvest. Can I use frozen berries, or does this recipe require fresh?

    1. Teresa

      September 30, 2021 at 8:06 am

      Hi Pamela. I don’t think you will have any problem using frozen. But I would thaw the blueberries first and then pat them dry really well with paper towels before using in the recipe so it doesn’t get real soupy.
