"I made this according to the recipe and it was delicious! I ate it warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. I also liked that the cobbler was like a sponge cake and crispy on top. I too am going to add a few more blueberries next time. But this recipe still rates 5 stars!"

"I would give this recipe a 3.5 out of 5 for taste. I think it is yummy but could definitely use a cup or 2 more of fruit. I think you could add more fruit and lemon juice without having to use more sugar but the batter is quite sweet. I thought before I started making this that the amount of fruit called for wasn't enough but I like to try the recipe as is the first time I make it."

"We really enjoyed this blueberry cobbler. My 10 year old niece, who is a picky eater, tried it and exclaimed, "I'm in love!""

"I tried this recipe 8/5/14! IDID adjust the recipe as follows: I added 2/3 cup cold water to the blueberries along with the 1 Tbsp. lemon juice and the 1/2 sugar! I used a 12x8" baking pan and I just melted the butter in the oven for about 5 minutes! I'd added 1 tsp. vanilla extract to the batter & I'd used 3/4 cup evaporated milk since I'd had it on hand & soured it with 1 Tbsp. cider vinegar! I ALMOST forgot the egg, but in the nick of time, I was able to beat the egg and just lightly stir into the batter-the next time, I'LL KNOW TO ADD THE EGG along with the milk and sifted dry ingredients which I'd purposely done for easier distribution of the flour, sugar, leavening and salt! This cobbler WAS buttery in its appearance and really looked delicious! I needed to test a blueberry recipe and thanks to this recipe, I was able to add a new recipe to my repertoire! delowenstein"

"Very tasty, but I also found it to be a little spongy."
