How to Make Blueberry Cobbler with Video

Summer. That word brings many different things to mind like floating in the pool, sitting by a campfire eating S’More’s, watching fireworks, chasing the ice cream truck down the street and watching the fire flies glow in the dark. It also brings to mind summer salads, grilling out with friends and family and just enjoying all those fresh vegetables and summer fruits and berries we’ve picked for our favorite treats like blueberry cobbler.

Have you ever picked your own blueberries? Falls Blueberry Farm in Maryville is where most people around here do their ‘blueberry picking.’ They make a day of it and take many different types of containers to carrie their little berries from heaven. Some people even pack a lunch so they can relax and enjoy the day. Its a wonderful thing going into the bushes and plucking your own berries to make pies, cobblers and topping for cheesecake. It sounds so good that I might have to cut this post short and go pick more.

  • Begin by washing the blueberries and checking to make sure all of the stems have been removed. I found quite a few in my batch and removed them so my guests wouldn’t get an unwelcome surprise.
  • Then, sprinkle the corn starch and sugar over the berries.
  • Zest and squeeze the juice from one lemon. Be sure to watch out for the seeds.
  • Add the nutmeg and cinnamon and gently stir everything together.

  • Pour the batter over the berries and bake at 350º for 40-50 minutes. Once the crust turns a nice golden brown, remove it from the oven and serve warm or cold or with vanilla ice cream. It’s delicious no matter if it’s warm or cold but it’s definitely better with vanilla ice cream!

As you watch the video, you will notice the seeds that fell into my blueberry cobbler. I had a lemon juicer sitting on the table but didn’t use it. I don’t know why I didn’t use it but I didn’t. Learn from me and watch out for the seeds. No one wants to eat a Blueberry Lemon Seed Cobbler! Thankfully I removed them all and my blueberry cobbler was saved.
