Tips For The Best Lemon Blueberry Cobbler

  • There is no need to grease your pan for this lemon blueberry cobbler recipe.  Melting the butter up front and pouring your crust batter into the melted butter self greases the pan and prevents sticking.
  • Use real butter in this old fashioned lemon blueberry cobbler, margarine doesn’t compare.  Real butter has that rich, creamy flavor that margarine just doesn’t.  Plus, butter provides a depth of flavor that margarine can only dream of adding.
  • This blueberry lemon cobbler recipe calls for adding 1/4 cup of sugar to the blueberries.  I have  made this recipe with and without this 1/4 cup of sugar and, to me, it’s just as tasty without adding the sugar to the blueberries.  You do you.
  • This easy blueberry lemon cobbler can be made with other fruits such as peaches, strawberries, blackberries, etc.  You might want to leave out the lemon zest, depending on the fruit you use.
  • This cobbler bakes for 30 to 35 minutes.  To check for doneness make sure it’s golden on top and that a tooth pick inserted in the middle of the cobbler comes out clean.

Can You Use Frozen Blueberries?

Yes, yes, yes!  Blueberry cobblers made with frozen blueberries maybe a slight bit more syrupy, due to the melting of the ice crystals around the frozen blueberries.  However, they are almost just as delicious as cobblers made with fresh blueberries. 

If however, you are someone who is not a fan of a syrupy cobbler you can still use frozen blueberries.  Just follow these 2 steps from Betty Crocker to prevent a syrupy blueberry cobbler when using frozen blueberries.

  • Place your frozen blueberries in a colander until they have thawed.
  • Transfer thawed blueberries to a paper towel-lined sheet pan and pat dry before spooning them in the baking dish.

How To Serve Lemon Blueberry Cobbler

Lemon blueberry cobbler speaks for itself.  The zesty lemon flavor perfectly complements the sweet blueberries, so no toppings required here.

However, I know here in the south, and I assume other parts, we just love to top and pair our cobblers.  So, here are some serving suggestions for this lemon blueberry cobbler.

  • Warm it up!  This blueberry lemon cobbler simply tastes better when it’s warm.  However, it’s still delicious straight out of the fridge, so no shame in eating it cold.
  • Serve your lemon blueberry cobbler in individual portions in small ramekins or bowls. You can also serve it family-style in the 9×13 baking dish in which it baked. 
  • To make your cobbler even more gorgeous than it already is, try garnishing it with fresh lemon slices or mint leaves for an extra pop of color.
  • We all love our cobblers with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream!   You can never go wrong with one of these.
  • Serve it with drinks.  Try pairing your lemon blueberry cobbler with a complementary beverage such as a glass of cold milk, hot tea, coffee, or even a glass of sparkling wine

How To Store Lemon Blueberry Cobbler

So you’ve made this lemon blueberry cobbler and it was the MVP at your church potluck.  However, you made a couple of these cobblers and there’s some left over.  The first question is, should I eat it or store it?  Once you rebuke the devil and come to your senses, you ask the second question, how do I store it?  Here are 2 ways to store this cobbler.

  • Store your leftover cobbler in the refrigerator in the 9×13 baking dish in which it was baked.  Cover the dish with aluminum foil.   You can also store small portions in an airtight container.  The leftovers will keep around 4 days in the fridge.
  • Freeze your leftover cobbler for up to 2 months.  Cover tightly with at least 2 layers of aluminum foil.  I even think it’s a good idea to wrap the whole pan in aluminum foil.  You can also freeze smaller portions in an airtight container.
