In this article, we will provide you with a step-by-step guide on how to make this delicious dessert. We will also highlight the benefits of using frozen blueberries, as well as provide tips on how to make the perfect cobbler topping.
Using Frozen Blueberries:
Frozen blueberries are a great alternative to fresh blueberries, especially when they are out of season. They are available year-round, and they are often less expensive than fresh blueberries. In addition, frozen blueberries are picked at their peak ripeness, which means that they are just as nutritious as fresh blueberries.
One benefit of using frozen blueberries is that they do not need to be washed before using. This is because they have already been washed and frozen, which saves time and effort. When using frozen blueberries, it is important to let them thaw before using them in the cobbler. This will ensure that the blueberries are evenly distributed throughout the dessert.
Making the Cobbler Topping:
The cobbler topping is an essential part of the dessert, and it is important to get it right. There are many different recipes for cobbler topping, but we believe that the best topping is one that is both crispy and fluffy.
To make the perfect cobbler topping, start by combining flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. Next, cut in cold butter using a pastry blender or a fork until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Then, add in milk and stir until the mixture forms a dough.
Roll out the dough and cut it into small pieces. Place the pieces on top of the blueberries in the casserole dish, and bake until the topping is golden brown.
¼ cup butter (half a stick) plus 1 tablespoon
½ cup sugar plus 1 tablespoon
1 cup flour plus 2 teaspoons
2 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
½ cup milk
2 cups frozen blueberries
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Butter a baking pan, either round like this quiche pan or any casserole dish would work. Use a paper towel so smear 1 tablespoon of softened butter over the entire inside of the pan. Or spray with non-stick cooking spray.
Melt 1/4 cup of butter in a microwave-safe bowl, about 20-30 seconds.
In a large mixing bowl, combine melted butter with 1/2 cup sugar, 1 cup flour, 2 teaspoons baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/2 cup milk. Whisk until smooth.
Pour the batter into your buttered pan.
Open the bag of blueberries. Sprinkle the remaining 2 teaspoons of flour inside and shake or gently massage with your hands. Pour the floured blueberries on top of the batter. Sprinkle with the remaining sugar.
Bake for about 45 minutes until the edges are golden, the center is set and the fruit is bubbly.
Serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
Tips for a Perfect Blueberry Cobbler:
- Use fresh or frozen blueberries that are ripe and sweet. This will ensure that the cobbler is bursting with flavor.
- Let the blueberries thaw before using them in the cobbler. This will ensure that they are evenly distributed throughout the dessert.
- Use a casserole dish that is the right size. The dish should be deep enough to hold the blueberries and the cobbler topping, but not too deep that the topping becomes soggy.
- Make sure the cobbler topping is evenly distributed over the blueberries. This will ensure that every bite of the cobbler has a perfect balance of blueberry and topping.
