"Delicious! I picked up some fresh blueberries on my last trip to the grocery store and didn't want to just store them up until I made pancakes. This is a really good cobbler recipe. Very easy to make and the cake doesn't stick to the pan after baking. The first time I tasted it I served it hot with vanilla ice cream. I really didn't think anything special about it and was going to rate it low. I gave it another taste this time without the icecream and oh my! Very very tasty and so many blueberries!!! So why I didn't give 5 stars? I wish the cake in the bottom was softer, i think it's too hard in contrast to the blueberry texture. Still a jummy desert, just ditch the ice cream!!! UPDATE: This has become my family's favorite quick desert! It's so easy to put together on game night! I have made a few adjustments which has made it just right. I increased milk by 1/4 cup and use evaporated milk when in hand. I add the vanilla straight in the batter, add a tsp of grated nutmeg and drizzle with a powdered sugar and water glaze after baking just to give it a special touch. I usually make it with frozen mixed berries and it's absolutely delicious! THANK YOU!"
"This was very tasty. I had about 2 1/2 c. blueberries that I simmered with the sugar and a couple tablespoons of water in a saucepan until the sugar dissolved. Then I poured the blueberry mixture over the batter and topped with a crumbly mixture of quick-cooking oats, cin., brown sugar, and butter. The batter was light and fluffy. A definite keeper."
"WOW! I made this the way that you have posted except when it came to the blueberry part, I put all the blueberries, the sugar and the vanilla in a saucepan and simmered it until the sugar was dissolved and it was saucy, then poured it over the batter. I served it fresh from the oven with vanilla ice cream. When I asked my husband if it was good, he said, "good is an understatement..." and the kids asked if there was any more! I will definitely be keeping this recipe! Thank you for posting it :)"
"Made this last night and shared it with friends while still warm from the oven. It didn't last long even though I doubled the recipe. Added scoops of vanilla ice cream and poof the next thing I know it was almost all gone! Have just enough left for one more serving for me and the hubby. Made as directed but used about only 2/3rds of the sugar called for on the top and this was plenty sweet for us. Had to bake longer about 50-55 minutes due to doubling it and using a 13 x 9 pan. Excellent will make again. Would be good with other fruits too!"
"I made this following the directions. While it is tasty, it is more like cake - is dry and not at all like the "cobbler" I was expecting. I see why the folks below made so many changes. Still looking for that "cobbler"!!"
"My first Blueberry Cobbler that turned out! I sprinkled brown sugar on top of mine! I'm never letting this recipe go! Thanks so much for such a simple yet delicious recipe!"
"Loved it! I was looking for a dessert recipe that didn't use a lot of sugar so I gave this one a try. I experimented by cutting the first round of sugar to only a 1/4 cup (Used unprocessed sugar) and the topping sugar (Regular white) was way under 1/3 cup, I just sprinkled it over the top. I also used 2 % milk because that's all I had and cut the butter by about a tablespoon. Maybe next time I can cut a little more without compromising the recipe? The cake was so soft, light and fluffy I would have thought it had buttermilk in it. We topped with a little whipped cream from the can. Next time I will definitely double the recipe!"
"This is the very first cobbler I have EVER made....EVER! It was crazy easy to make and turned out beautiful....I am so proud of myself :). Thank-you soooo much for sharing this recipe...it was definitely a confidence booster for me."
"Love this! So easy to make and was a huge hit with my family, especially my 6 year old supper picky son who now asks every day if we can make this! It also doubles well, baked in a 9x13 pan for 35 min, came out perfect! I prefer wild blueberries for a more intense flavour, i thawed some frozen ones and drained off a bit of the juice to keep things from getting soggy....yummy!"
"My granddaughters and I ended up making 2 of these back to back because we had a lot of blueberries. I put vanilla in the batter the 1st time and on top the 2nd time. We actually liked it on top the best. Liked the hard sugary crust on top. I would like to try some of the variations the other reviews did also. Thanks for sharing!"
"This was AMAZING! I made it EXACTLY like it is written: it is so easy and wonderful. Honeslty I have been making a blue berry tea cake forever (since I was a kid) and this is BETTER. I even used frozen blueberries that I picked last summer. I will definitely make it again. The buttery carmelized bits at the bottom were the best ever. <br/><br/>Why change a thing? I didn't and WOULDN'T! :)"
"This recipe tasted quite good, but the consistency was closer to a very large muffin than to a cobbler. I will use this recipe again for brunch muffins, but not for cobbler. Kinda' disappointed:("
"We enjoyed this, although it is more cakelike than a cobbler usually is as a reviewer already noted. We had it with ice cream. Just fabulous!"
"My husband is a big cobbler fan and he said he liked it but it was too cake-like for him."
"Delicious...I made a few changes...I added a handful of berries to the batter folding them in gently. Added 1 egg and 1/2 tsp vanilla to the batter. This will be a favorite...I was only able to gleen 1 1/2 cups of blueberries off my bushes...made this spur of the moment. Wish I would have had vanilla ice cream on hand."
"This is the same recipe I use for cobbler. Perhaps the previous reviewer read the title wrong. . . it's a cobbler not a cake. And a great cobbler it is! I've even substituted raspberries for the blueberries and it always comes out perfect. When I'm in a hurry, I substitute bisquick for the first six ingredients."
"This is a good muffin cake with blueberry topping (this is in no way a cobbler). Easy to make and tastes good.<br/><br/>I made it using an equal mix of granulated and brown sugar (I was low on granulated sugar) and used walnut oil in place of the butter. It turned out very good."
"I think of a fruit cobbler as having either a biscuit or pie crust top. This recipe is really more of a fruit "buckle" in that you put the cake-like batter on the bottom and the fruit on top. That said, it was really, really good and very easy. The only thing I did differently was add 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon to the fruit. I mixed the blueberries, cinnamon, vanilla and sugar together and let the mixture set a few minutes to bring out the juices. I served warm with homemade vanilla gelato. Delicious! I'll be making this again!"
"delicious.I love this recipe"
"I made as directed EXCEPT I followed another reviewer's tip about cooking the 1/3 c. sugar and blueberries on top of the stove. I then mixed in with the batter and it turned out absolutely delicious!!!! I received many compliments and it was gone quickly!"
