This blueberry cobbler recipe is just like my peach cobbler recipe that I have been making for over 40 years. It has the addition of the juice and rind of a lemon and the lemon really brightens the flavor of the blueberries.
I served it with store bought ice cream, I didn’t have time today to whip some up. I’d run out of heavy cream and didn’t feel like running to town. Actually I had an intended to make a pineapple sorbet today and I just didn’t think that would go good with the cobbler. That’s the one disadvantage I can see to country life is that if you run out of something it takes at least an hour out of your day to go get it.
I’m hoping this weekend that we get a chance to go out and look for ripe berries. The wild ones taste so much better.
Fresh, juicy blueberries bakes in a cake-type cobbler. Perfect with ice cream.
