Apple-Blueberry Cobbler


This recipe was inspired by camping trips I used to take with my family when I was younger. Originally, this cobbler was made using huckleberries, and baked over a campfire; but since I no longer live in an area where I can get huckleberries and don't have a constant campfire going, I substituted frozen wild blueberries and baked it in the oven instead. I also use a homemade apple beer in the batter, but use whatever hard cider or fruity beer you like.

1 10-inch cobbler



  • 4 Gala apples - peeled, cored, and cut into 1/16-inch slices

  • 2 cups frozen wild blueberries

  • cup maple syrup

  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

  • 1 lemon, juiced

  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg


  • ½ cup maple syrup

  • ¼ cup unsalted butter, melted

  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 ½ cups whole wheat flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt

  • 1 cup hard apple cider


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 10-inch cast iron skillet.

  2. Mix apples, blueberries, maple syrup, cornstarch, lemon juice, cinnamon, kosher salt, and nutmeg together in a large bowl. Toss to thoroughly combine. Pour into the prepared skillet.

  3. Stir maple syrup, melted butter, and vanilla extract together in a large bowl. Add flour, baking powder, baking soda, and kosher salt; stir until crumbly. Pour in cider and stir until just combined. Place dollops of batter over apple-berry mixture.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until biscuit topping is cooked through and fruit is bubbly, about 45 minutes.

Cook's Note:

It may be helpful to place a baking sheet beneath the cast iron skillet in the oven to prevent any spills caused by berries bubbling over.
