  • Sift flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl. Cut 1/4 butter into flour mixture with two knives or a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

  • Whisk milk and egg together in a bowl; stir into flour mixture until just moistened.

  • Spread blueberries in the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle tapioca powder over blueberries; drizzle lemon juice over the top. Dot remaining butter pieces over blueberries. Drop batter in mounds over the blueberry mixture.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until cobbler is golden and bubbling, about 30 minutes.

I really wanted to like this more than we did it is so easy to assemble and has great promise. First 2 cups of blueberries is barely enough to barely cover the bottom of a 9 x 13 pan. I opted to use a 9 x 6 pan and 3 cups of blueberries. My mistake was not reducing the amount of batter (topping) - after baking 30 minutes at 400 the top looked beautiful but the topping was not done. I tented it with foil reduced the heat to 325 and baked another 15 minutes. The topping is very cake like and even with 3 cups of berries there still wasn't quite enough blueberries. I would recommend using the 9 x 13" pan called for and increasing the blueberries to 4 - 5 cups. Read More

My husband and I agreed that this is our new go-to blueberry cobbler recipe. I halved the recipe except for the blueberries and baked it in a smaller dish. I also omitted the lemon juice and substituted corn starch for the tapioca (cause I don't have any!). It was perfect. Perfect fruit to crust proportion perfect crispness perfect juiciness perfect sweetness. Loved it! Read More

Turned out great. I left out the egg lemon and tapioca because i didnt have them and its still yummy!. I also added sugar to the juice of the frozen blueberries and cooked in a saucepan a little then i thickened it with water and cornstarch for the perfect pie filling consistency. Read More

This was a very good basic Cobbler recipe, my only change was using 3 cups of berries as I could tell 2 would barely cover the bottom of my pan. Next time I make it I will add 1 tsp of vanilla, and 1/2 tsp of cinnamon to the batter for just a little more flavor. Read More

I reduced the sugar because I don't like really sweet food. I prefer to taste the fruit and not have it overwhelmed with sugar. This recipe is really easy and delicious!! Read More

I use this recipe a lot with blackberries. For whatever berry I use a 6x10 baking dish pour in enough berries to completely cover the bottom and bake at 350 for 45 minutes. Read More
