Does baking blueberry cobbler from scratch sound too difficult? Well, forget all those years of wanting a taste of summer because you can make this classic dessert right in your microwave. This classic blueberry cobbler recipe is easy to put together, and all the ingredients are simple and convenient to keep on hand.
Basic Recipe Information
- Approximate prep time: 20 minutes
- Approximate Cooking time: 10 minutes for each serving
- Servings: three medium-sized servings
- Measuring cups and spoons for ingredients
- Mixing bowls: two narrow ones, one wide one with a flat bottom that fits inside the casserole dish paper towel
- Wooden spoon for mixing batter
- A cutting board or tray to make a work surface on which to peel and cut the blueberries
- Paper towel
- Wire cooling rack into which the casserole dish with the unbaked cobbler can be gently placed once after it comes out of the oven so that air can circulate freely around it. Don’t skip this step!
- 6 cups of blueberries of your choice, fresh or frozen, works well in this recipe. If you use frozen berries, just thaw them out before using them for easier preparation.
- 1/3 cup sugar
- ·2 tablespoons flour, all-purpose white is best if you want to achieve the perfect texture for this cobbler topping (you can substitute whole wheat or cornstarch mix if desired, but remember that it will affect the flavor of the cobbler)
- ·2 tablespoons of brown sugar to top off each serving
- Set your microwave oven to high power and take out a small bowl. Put in 1/3 cup sugar and 2 tablespoons flour, mix it up well until all the ingredients are incorporated evenly. Once mixed, break apart any lumps and clumps.
- Add the blueberries (that you’ve already peeled and sliced) to your bowl, then using the wooden spoon, stir everything together until it’s all coated evenly with the flour/sugar mixture. Pour the mixture into the other bowl and place a paper towel underneath this bowl that you’re going to microwave this in; that will help absorb any excess liquid from the berries and keep things clean when you serve them.
- Microwave the bowl for 3 minutes, then stir everything together again. If there’s still too much liquid at this point, give it another 30-60 seconds. The berries will be very hot when you take them out to mix and try to avoid burning yourself; set a timer to know exactly how much time has passed in between microwave phases.
- When everything is thick and ready, divide the blueberry mixture into three equal portions on each plate, and top with a tablespoon’s worth of brown sugar (depending on your system for portion control).
How To Serve/Plate And Garnish
- The best way to serve a classic blueberry cobbler is warm, with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. If you have fresh whipped cream, or homemade sweetened whipped cream available, it will take your classic American dessert to another level. Of course, the star ingredient here is the ripe, juicy blueberries that turn into almost liquid when cooked with the biscuit dough.
