This delicious cobbler starts with a simple blueberry filling that requires no stovetop cooking. Then, it’s topped with a wonderful, classic cobber batter.

What I get is a cobbler that’s full of all the great flavors and textures I’ve always loved in traditional cobbler but with a little something extra to make it super special.

Recipe FAQ

Can I substitute frozen blueberries for fresh?

You sure can. Just add the same amount of frozen blueberries that you would fresh.

Why is my blueberry cobbler runny?

Runny cobbler is usually the result of extra juicy fruit or not letting the cobbler sit long enough. Cobbler has to cool a bit for the filling to thicken properly.

How do you make a cobbler thicker?

Add 1 or 2 tablespoons of cornstarch to the fruit mixture to make the filling thicker.

Can you make blueberry cobbler in advance?

You can make the filling in advance, but I don’t recommend making the full cobbler before you’re ready to serve it. It’s best when it’s fresh from the oven.

Can you freeze homemade blueberry cobbler?

It freezes very well. Cobbler will last for up to 3 months in the freezer.

How to Store and Reheat Leftover Blueberry Cobbler

Store the cobbler in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. For longer storage, freeze it for up to 3 months in an airtight, freezer-safe container.

To reheat cobbler, let it come to room temperature. Then, bake it at 250 degrees until warmed through.
