And Now for Something Yummy

You know how I always say that I need to quit eating sweets and baking things because then I want to eat them? Well, it doesn’t seem to be working. I made cobbler three times this week, which also means that I ate cobbler three times this week too.
In my defense, I was trying to get the recipe just right. Happily, the third time was a charm, so now I can move on to eating something else like, I don’t know, maybe more salad.

The weather here has been sooo wonderful! Nice and warm and sunny. Oh, how I love it! It makes me feel like having a picnic…but taking food photos outdoors is the closest I’ve gotten. My daughter really likes picnics too, but she absolutely adores blueberries so there wasn’t going to be any picnics with these desserts. No…she wanted to eat her share the moment they were done. When she saw me gathering up my photo supplies, she sternly said, “Only take ONE photo, Mommy!”
I’ve never really thought of myself as a blueberry-lover. Growing up I remember my uncle looking forward to wild blueberry picking season. I don’t know that I’ve ever noticed blueberries growing anywhere all nestled in amongst the flora and fauna. Perhaps I haven’t really been looking as well as I should have…I do know there are a few patches of rosy raspberries here and there up at the lake though.

In any case, I really love how this blueberry cobbler turned out. Here’s the recipe if you want to try it too.
Blueberry Cobbler
Makes four individual servings.
          Fruit Mixture
  • 2 1/2 cups blueberries
  • 1 tbsp. butter, melted
  • 1/4 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp. lemon juice 
  • 1/2 tsp. sugar for each ramekin
          
          Topping
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 tbsp. butter, melted
First prepare the fruit mixture. In a small container, melt butter and then stir in vanilla and lemon juice. Pour the mixture over the blueberries and stir gently. Divide blueberries among four ramekins. Top each portion with 1/2 tsp. of sugar.
For the topping, mix together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Set aside. In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg, vanilla, milk and melted butter. Add the wet mixture to the dry. Divide dough into four portions and spoon on top of blueberries. Sprinkle dough with a little sugar, if you like. Place ramekins on a cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees until the crust is golden, which is approximately 25 minutes. Serve slightly warm with whipped cream.

    Life is too short not to eat all the delicious things we can! 🙂
    My father has a blueberry farm and the best times of my life were during picking season when we would get up early and pick the fields by hand. We would be purple for 2 months! I'm always looking for a new cobbler recipe…we all have our own and it's fun when we get together to try each others.
    Hope you are enjoying this beautiful spring!

    I have been thinking of putting
    in some blueberry bushes. My
    dad grows them out in Washington
    and they are absolutely amazing
    fresh off the bush! Blueberries
    are SO good for you, too. This
    looks delish….!

    Hello sunshine!
    I love your bluberry photos…beautiful!
    The cobbler looks great and I agree with you; you have to make (and eat) these recipes a few times, to make sure to get them right on. (Lol)
    I love sweets so I can truly understand.
    I have never been a big fan of blueberries by themselves, but I adore blueberry jam, muffins, cobblers, fruit crisps, cheesecake, pancakes…and on and on..I'm getting hungry!!! Lol
    Your photos belong in magazines my dear friend..they are stunning and so mouth-watering.
    Have a great weekend dear friend..enjoying all the things you love to do!
    I'm enjoying being with my son down south!
    He's at work until early afternoon, so I'm loving some quiet time while I wait for him.
    We're headed to Niagara when he returns! Oh such fun; and the photo opportunities!
    Love to you Tricia!!!!!
    Hugs 🙂

    All my love,
    Deborah xoxoxooxox

    Tricia, I just LOVE blueberry cobbler, and these look wonderful. I actually picked up some blueberries today. They were destined for a pie, but you can bet plans have changed! Thank you so much for sharing the recipe here.

    Your photographs are just wonderful. I love the light on the berries in the second one. Truly so lovely.

    Sending you wishes for a fantastic weekend!

    They look delish! I'm not much for the picking part of berries, but I do love to eat them. Maybe I'll have to break down and go to a berry farm. Fresh picked blueberries are so much better than the ones at the grocery store. Wild blueberries are even better.
