A blueberry cobbler is typically made using 2 1/2 to 3 cups of fresh or frozen blueberries, combined with sugar, seasonings and milk. Instead of a traditional pie crust, a biscuit topping is added to the top or bottom of the fruit mixture, and the cobbler is baked until done.
Blueberry cobbler recipes can be traditional, or quick and easy, as demonstrated by blueberry cobbler recipes at Allrecipes.com and Betty Crocker. Traditional blueberry cobbler takes about 15 minutes to prepare and includes numerous ingredients. In addition to fresh blueberries, the Allrecipes.com version includes fresh lemon juice and cinnamon in its fruit mixture. Creating the biscuit mixture from scratch requires flour, baking powder and several tablespoons of sugar. The fruit mixture is made first and is placed into a greased baking dish, and spoonfuls of handmade biscuit batter are placed on top.
Betty Crocker features a simplified version of blueberry cobbler that requires the use of ready-made baking mix. A batter made from baking mix, melted butter, milk and sugar is placed into a prepared baking dish and topped with fresh blueberries. This easy cobbler is baked until golden brown. Fresh fruit for cobbler should be ripe, but frozen fruit is a good substitute, as is canned fruit pie filling or canned fruit packed in water.
