This was really good! The cobbler topping reminded me of a coffeecake. I loved the taste of the ginger and orange with the blueberries - a great touch! Don't forget the vanilla ice cream! thanks for posting.
OH MAN! Is this ever incredible! I only made half the recipe and used a 8x8" pan because there is only the two of us. I only wish I could eat more : ) Don't forget to put the orange juice and zest in this recipe because it just makes this recipe stand out! This is so good on it's own, that although I might ordinarily use vanilla ice cream with a cobble, this one needs no additives, of any kind. Absolutely fab!! Thanks, again and again, Kitten!!
