This blueberry cobbler is a southern-style version with a soft and cake-like batter with loads of fresh blueberries scattered on top. To take things up a notch, this cobbler is baked with brown butter and pieces of cream cheese scattered throughout.
WHAT YOU NEED unsalted butter granulated sugar vanilla extract milk all purpose flour baking powder salt fresh blueberries lemon zest sugar cream cheese powdered sugar vanilla ice cream
1. Brown the butter in a 10″ cast iron skillet over medium heat. Melt down the butter and continue to stir until it goes quiet and turns brown. 2. While the butter cools, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt in a small bowl and set aside. 3. Then, combine the blueberries, lemon zest, and 1 tbsp sugar in another bowl and set aside.
4. Once the butter has cooled (it can be a little warm but not hot), pour in the sugar and vanilla and whisk to combine. 5. Then whisk in half of the dry ingredients, then the milk, then the rest of the dry ingredients. The batter should be the consistency of thin pancake batter. 6. Pour the batter into the skillet.
7. Scatter a handful of blueberries on top, then evenly disperse the cream cheese bits throughout the cobbler. 8. Top with the remaining blueberries and bake for 35-40 minutes. 9. Allow the cobbler to cool for at least 30 minutes. Then sprinkle with a dusting of powdered sugar.
