Skillet Blueberry Cobbler

Recipe by Velouria
READY IN: 35mins




  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Melt the butter in a 10 or 12-inch cast-iron skillet.
  • Add blueberries (if using frozen, let fruit thaw at room temperature first) and 2 tablespoons of the sugar.
  • Stir gently and cook just until the berries begin to soften. If mixture seems at all dry, add the water.
  • Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, whisk together flour, remaining 3/4 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  • Add the milk and stir to make a thick batter.
  • Spoon batter onto the fruit.
  • Drag a spoon or spatula through batter to make streaks of white and blue. DON'T mix thoroughly.
  • Bake until a tester inserted in the biscuit top comes out clean and the fruit is bubbling around the edges, about 20 minutes.
  • Serve with whipped cream or ice cream, if desired.
  • Note: You can make this with fresh or frozen peaches or other berries as well.
  • If you don't have a cast-iron skillet, you can use an ovenproof dish. You can heat the butter and fruit in a skillet and then scrape them into a baking dish to continue.
  • The cobbler is best served warm directly from the pan. If you have leftovers or plan to keep for a while, transfer to a nonreactive container.
