Blueberry Cobbler Tips

Should you thaw the frozen blueberries before assembling blueberry cobbler?

There's no need to thaw the blueberries first. In fact it's ideal to use blueberries that are still frozen in this recipe to avoid discoloring the batter. Have a surplus of frozen blueberries stashed in the freezer? Here are more blueberry desserts that will satisfy your sweet tooth!

How can you make blueberry cobbler your own?

Feel free to substitute other berries, such as raspberries, blackberries or strawberries, to customize this buttery blueberry cobbler. When serving, top the cobbler with homemade whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream. If your blueberry cobbler is extra juicy, scoop up some of the fruit with a slotted spoon and drizzle the syrup over the top of the cobbler.

How do you store blueberry cobbler?

Allow the cobbler to cool and then cover with plastic wrap or foil. Store it in the fridge for 2-3 days or cover and freeze for up to 3 months.

If using frozen blueberries, use without thawing to avoid discoloring the batter.
