This Blueberry Cobbler has fresh, ripe blueberries with a crisp, biscuit on top and spiced with a secret ingredient to bring out the flavor of the blueberries. It’s wonderful as a dessert served with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream! Though blueberry cobbler is typically served as a dessert, some like it alongside a cup of coffee or tea in the morning, similar to our delicious Blueberry Breakfast Cake.
Hi Everyone, are you looking for a classic, fruit cobbler that you can serve any time of the year and one that everyone will surely love? Look no further than this easy blueberry cobbler!
This blueberry cobbler recipe has Saigon cinnamon in the filling and the dough which really brings out the blueberry flavor. It’s just a little amount so that you don’t get overpowered with the taste of the cinnamon. Saigon cinnamon is a little stronger in aroma and in flavor than the more common Ceylon cinnamon.
Blueberry season (in North America) runs from April through October. Even though it’s February now, Spring is right around the corner. In most grocery stores, you can get fresh blueberries year round (October through March blueberries come from South America) but in case you can not find fresh ones, you can substitute the same amount of frozen blueberries in this recipe.
Ingredients for Blueberry Cobbler

Topping this Blueberry Cobbler with vanilla ice cream is a must or at least whipped cream. The cold vanilla ice cream with the warm, Blueberry Cobbler makes such a classic dessert that can be enjoyed really on any holiday.
I personally love making this cobbler with fresh blueberries, especially after going blueberry picking when I have a lot on hand (since this recipe takes 6 cups). But don’t let not having fresh blueberries deter you from making this recipe. You can make it with the same amount of frozen, unsweetened blueberries as well.
I know you will love this Blueberry Cobbler recipe!
