The other day my Dad gave me lots of blueberries that he had picked from his blueberry bushes. He has 6 bushes and this year they have produced a ton of blueberries!
I knew that I wanted to make a blueberry cobbler, but blueberry cobblers sometimes taste a little too tart. I had bought some bing cherries at the grocery store, so I thought I would add some of these to the cobbler to make it sweeter. When I took the cobbler out of the oven I dipped a heaping teaspoon out and tasted it. I was amazed at how the cherries sweetened the cobbler! It was delicious! My husband ate two bowls!
I highly recommend adding bing cherries to your blueberry cobbler!
Here’s how to make this delicious cobbler:
Take 2 cups of blueberries and 1 cup of bing cherries, remove the stems and rinse thoroughly. Remove the pits from the cherries and cut in halves. This part is a little work, but it’s worth it at the end!
Grease an 8″ x 8″ glass baking dish. Add the berries, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract and 1 teaspoon lemon juice to the baking dish. Mix well. Sprinkle with 1 cup of sugar and 1/2 teaspoon flour, 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour and 1 tablespoon melted butter. Mix well. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, stir together with a pastry blender: 1 3/4 cups flour, 4 teaspoons baking powder and 6 tablespoons white sugar and 5 tablespoons butter. Add 1 cup milk and mix just until blended. Cover and let rest for about 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, preheat oven to 375 degrees. Pour the batter over the berry mixture in the baking dish. Mix together 2 teaspoons white sugar and a pinch of ground cinnamon. Sprinkle over the top.
Bake for 20-25 minutes until the top is golden brown.
Let cool and serve. Enjoy all the berry goodness!
