I wish with all of my heart that I could be solely a food blogger.
I feel like its my niche, my safe and comfy spot.
But my problem isn’t figuring out how to develop lots of different and original recipes, my problem is finding the time to set-up and take all the pictures. That’s the area of my struggle. But my passion is definitely in developing and photographing food, so that is why I will continue to post as many recipes as often as my sweet busy schedule will allow.
And this recipe is quickly becoming one of my favorites.
I made it last month with my second born son. We were both craving something sweet and carb loaded and a cobbler was just what fit the bill.
So we made it, and ate it, and loved it.
I have been dreaming of this blueberry cobbler ever since.
The recipe that I followed that day asked for you to put some of the dough underneath the berries, but in the end it felt more like a blueberry muffin instead of a cobbler, so I tweaked the recipe and changed it to more suit my tastes and this one was born.
Y’all, go and buy all the berries and make all the cobbler.
We can always run later to burn off all the calories.
1 1/2 Cups Flour*
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
1 1/4 Tablespoon Baking Powder
3/4 Cups Sugar
1/2 Stick Butter chilled and grated
1/2 Cup Cream
Zest of one Lemon
4 Cups Blueberries
1/2 Cup Sugar mixed with 2 tablespoons flour
for the streusel topping
1/2 Cup Sugar
1/4 Cup Flour
1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
4 Tablespoon Butter softened
*I used whole wheat flour which gave it a nuttier flavor, feel free to use whatever flour you have.
Prepare a baking dish and set aside. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium size bowl combine berries and the sugar that is mixed with flour. After combined set aside. In another bowl combine dry ingredients. Mix well. Once combined add in grated butter. Carefully mix together until crumbly. Next add in lemon zest, egg, and cream. Mix until just combined. Add blueberries to prepared baking dish and then drop dough over the berries. Next, mix together streusel topping and sprinkle over top of cobbler.
Place in preheated oven and cook for approximately 40 minutes or until crust is completely cooked and lightly browned. Remove from oven and serve warm. Dust with powdered sugar or serve with homemade whipped cream.
