“Single Lady” Blueberry Cobbler.

As a self-proclaimed chocoholic, I sometimes forget how much I adore a simple, rustic fruit cobbler.

Blueberry Cobblers
Please pardon the crappy iPhone photos. Right as I was about to start snapping pictures, my DSLR’s battery decided to die. And since I recently moved and am extremely disorganized, I can’t find my dang charger. Excuses, excuses, I know. 

In fact, I think the last time I actually made a cobbler was probably several years ago. Then one fine evening back in February, I stumbled upon this recipe for single lady blueberry cobbler from my fellow ginger, Megan. I made the blueberry cobblers for a friend {shoutout to Chanel – these are for you, girl!} and myself for our “single ladies Valentine’s day” get-together. We were both amazed at how delicious the cobblers are.

You should most definitely make these a la mode with some vanilla ice cream. To quote Super Troopers, 1..2..3.. dooo iiitttt.

I was literally in awe – like, “OMG!!” – as to how good the cobbler tasted. {And I’m not really that easily impressed/excited. Okay, that’s debatable. But still.}

These cobblers are made up of tasty blueberry gooeyness [spellcheck informs me that “gooeyness” is not a word… whatevs.] combined with that deliciously sweet, drop biscuity cobbler topping. And the best part of all? There’s not too much of it, so it’s a perfect little dessert for one person. Or if you want to be kind and share, I suppose you could share it with another person. The recipe also easily doubles, which I’d advise that you do double it if you plan on being generous and sharing.IMG_4535

“Single Lady” Blueberry Cobblers

Yield: Two small ramekins, or one larger ramekin. Either way, this cobbler is totes acceptable as a single serving. Let’s just put it that way.



– 2 tbsp. granulated sugar

– 3/4 tsp. cornstarch

– 1/4 tsp. lemon juice (or a little splash)

– 1 cup fresh blueberries

Cobbler Topping:

– 1/4 cup flour

– 3/4 tsp. granulated sugar

– heaping 1/4 tsp. baking powder

– tiny pinch of salt

– 1 tbsp. cold, unsalted butter

– 2 tbsp. milk

Make the Cobbler!

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. To make the blueberry filling, add the berries, sugar, cornstarch, and lemon juice in a small saucepan. Heat until the juices begin bubbling, and allow the mixture to boil for one minute. Stir to ensure that it doesn’t get scorched [I usually keep the heat at medium-high for this]. Spoon the hot berries into a small, oven-safe dish, two small ramekins, or one large ramekin.
  2. To make the cobbler topping, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a small bowl. Mix in the butter – to do this, you can use a pastry cutter or a fork. Mix until you get a crumb-like consistency [think like a biscuit or scone]. Add the milk and mix until combined. Drop the cobbler mixture on top of the hot berries.
  3. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until cobbler topping is golden brown. Serve with vanilla ice cream, if desired. Enjoy!

PS: I love cute ramekins.
