For the Filling:

  • 32 oz blueberries fresh or frozen
  • ½ cup water
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon butter

For the Topping:

For Sprinkling:

  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon


Make the Filling:

  • Preheat the oven to 350. Place the blueberries, water, brown sugar, cornstarch and lemon zest in a saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil, while stirring often. Remove from the heat and add the lemon juice and butter.
  • Remove from heat and pour into a 9x13 pan.

Make the Topping:

  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Mix together the milk and butter. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir until just combined. Mix together the sprinkling mixture in a small bowl and set aside.
  • Spoon the topping evenly over to fruit layer. This works best by placing small dollops of the batter over the filling then spreading with a small off-set spatula. It is ok if there are a few gaps in the topping but try and make it as even as possible. Sprinkle with the sprinkling mixture (you may not use all the cinnamon sugar).
  • Bake for 30 minutes, until the top is golden and the fruit is bubbling. Allow to sit for at least 30 minutes before serving. Enjoy!


Blueberries: Fresh blueberries are my #1 choice for this cobbler! However, it will still turn out great using frozen blueberries. No need to thaw the frozen blueberries in advance to make this cobbler.
MAKE IT DAIRY-FREE: Use vegan butter and almond milk (or another dairy-free milk) to make this cobbler dairy-free.
Variation Ideas: You can easily use different berries like strawberries, blackberries or raspberries in place of the blueberries. I like to mix and match different berries for a triple berry cobbler. Just use 32oz of any of your favorite berries. Slice strawberries thinly if using.
