Blueberry Cobbler

Overflowing tastiness

Because everyone needs a little something sweet every now and then.

Blueberry cobbler

  • 2 pints blueberries, fresh or frozen
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup port
  • 1 tsp cornstarch, mixed with equal amount water until smooth
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp sugar

In a saucepan over medium heat, bring port, brown sugar and one pint of berries to a boil, mash berries with a metal potato masher. Add corn starch mix and allow to thicken, stirring well. Add remaining berries and stir, bringing back to a boil and allowing mix to thicken again, about five minutes or longer if using frozen. Remove from heat and set aside. In a large bowl, mix flour and baking powder. Cut butter into flour mix, until crumbly. Add sugar and milk. Stir to incorporate. The mix will be wet, more of a drop biscuit or almost a cake batter consistency. Preheat oven to 350. Divide berries evenly between three to four buttered 12-ounce dishes or a single two-quart casserole dish. Use a spoon to spread batter evenly over top. (It doesn’t have to be perfect.) Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar if desired. Place baking dish on a cookie sheet lined with foil to catch any leaks. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until tops are golden. They will rise in the oven and fall somewhat and crack once they’re cooled.


About Rufus' Food and Spirits Guide

This blog attempts to collect some of the things I try to create with food and booze. Sometimes I succeed and sometimes I fail. My hope is to entertain and maybe help people think a little harder about what they decide to eat and drink.

    Looks yummy . . . but I’m glad I don’t have to scrub those pans. πŸ˜€

  2. Young Wifey says:

    I can’t wait to pick blueberries this summer… mmm…

  3. A_Boleyn says:

    Those look delicious. And I agree with not wanting to do any of the dishwashing. πŸ™‚ Maybe you could use those small disposable aluminum foil pans which would serve 2 people.

    • A_Boleyn says:

      PS: I’d have to use orange juice instead of the port (don’t have any handy) but I think it would still be spectacular. πŸ™‚

    its drooling at itself! looks fantastic

  5. greensquash says:

    You had me at port.

  6. Purely.. Kay says:

    See.. you guys knew I was going to come here hungry and you decided to torture me with this blueberry goodness of wonderful πŸ˜‰

  7. rutheh says:

    Remember when you couldn’t get blueberries in February? We are fortunate. Would it detract to have a small scoop of vanilla ice cream involved?

  8. Very.. very sneaky… I was admiring the dripping sticky bits of Cobbler, imagining a spoonful and my eyes almost slid right through the ingredients… then back up.. what?? Port?? Incredible.. you’ve managed to take home-cooking and make it gourmet again:) I have to try this now.. I wish I had those cute little dishes for it:)

  9. Carolyn Chan says:

    Oooh overflowing gooey sweet goodness.

  10. They look great when all the juices are running out and it doesn’t taste right unless you get to the stage when the juices rise up through the topping – delicious

  11. hotlyspiced says:

    Now that’s a great recipe! I just love the look of the blueberry juice oozing out of the dish. Blueberries are my most favourite berry to cook with. Looks great and I can’t wait to try it!

  12. Beautiful and I agree, the juices have to flow!

  13. ChgoJohn says:

    That photo should become the iconic blueberry cobbler shot! I love cobbler, Greg, but my recipe results in a more cake-like topping, It’s good but, by the looks of ’em, yours is far better. Next time I can get my hands on some good, fresh peaches — maybe the fabled Mackinaw — I’ll ditch my topping and give yours a try. It looks like the kind of topping I’ve been striving for. … Thanks!

  14. Maureen says:

    I love blueberry cobbler. I remember making it using native Maine blueberries when I was a kid. No little blue marvels here but we have the big berries and they’re cheap right now. I’m going to give this a try this weekend. Yummy looking.

  15. sallybr says:

    Looks absolutely scrumptious!
    I had to smile at the thought of washing those dishes afterwards… πŸ™‚ Elbow grease involved!

    I love cobblers and blueberries are my favorite. It’s such a warm, comforting dessert. Love it!!!

  38. Oh, what a great idea adding port and there are my favourite bowls of your again.
    πŸ™‚ Mandy

  39. What a great dessert for an overcast wintery day, Greg! Although I cannot complain either, winter has been unseasonably warm and dry. I love that this cobbler has port in it.

  40. Kristy says:

    Mr. N and I are drooling right now….Mmmmm.

  41. Charles says:

    Loving the addition of port – bet it really makes the flavour nice and rich and well-rounded

  49. That really is an iconic shot of blueberry cobbler or crisp in those wonderful pyrex dishes. (I, too, am glad not to have to clean them!) I never would have thought to add Port, but what a great idea!

  50. Some pictures tell you all you need to know about how good a particular food is.

  51. Kas says:

    Looks absolutely delicious, and I was just on the lookout for a great cobbler recipe!

  52. those are breathtaking! I love the idea of making them individually….

  53. easybaked says:

    individual desserts are my favorite kind– even if it does mean more dishes. These look delish!

  54. This looks like a fabulously rich version of a berry gratin I make on occasion. I may have to whip some of these up tonight! Love a good excuse to use my ramekins. πŸ™‚

  55. You guys do eat well don’t ya! I have not made a cobbler since school. This looks gorgeous.
