This is an easy dessert that you can make for guests right before they arrive and they will be coming back for more. Some people call it a buckle, some people call it a cobbler. I was raised eating cobbler’s. Boysenberry cobbler was our favorite, growing up in sunny California. I think I have fallen in love! I just love desserts that are simple with not a lot of ingredients!


But it’s really hard to find Boysenberries in the Northeast. So I am making Blueberry Cobbler, which is unbelievably delicious. You will want to lick your plate, it’s that good. I might have done that…no one was looking, so no witnesses!

A group of blogger friends and I are doing a series of Saying Goodbye to Summer Fruits roundup! No No No! I don’t want to say goodbye! Especially since I don’t have to, since hubs bought 10 lbs of blueberries…tee hee!


Blueberry Cobbler


  • 3 1/2 cups frozen blueberries
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice ( I used lime juice from a bottle)
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar, divided
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup milk
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • ¾ cup boiling water


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F
  2. Spread blueberries in ungreased 8 or 9-inch square baking dish or pan
  3. Sprinkle with cornstarch
  4. Drizzle with lemon juice
  5. Set aside
  6. In medium bowl combine flour, ½ cup sugar, baking powder and salt
  7. Add milk and butter
  8. Stir just until combined (not smooth)
  9. Drop mounds of dough onto blueberries
  10. Pour boiling water over dough and fruit
  11. Sprinkle with remaining ¼ cup sugar
  12. Bake until biscuits are golden brown and blueberries are bubbly, 45 to 50 minutes
  13. Serve warm or at room temperature

Number of servings  8-10

What is the purpose of the boiling water poured over the batter?

Hi Sharon,

The hot water binds all of the batter ingredients together to form a delicious crust, same as when you use a baking mix. Nettie
